An updated version of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has been spied for the first time, wearing an obfuscating cover over its front fascia to mask the design revisions made there. Dodge just last week revealed a new, dual-snorkel hood for the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat, so it makes sense that its four-door partner in crime would receive some aesthetic tweaks, too – although as far as we can tell, the Hellcat Charger’s hood remains the same as always.
The new spy shots, which have been shared by Motor1, appear to reveal that only the front end is set to receive any styling tweaks. We’re unable to pick out any specific details through the cover, but based on its coverage, there’s a strong chance that the upper grille, lower grille, and headlights will all be revised. It even looks as though the lower grille could grow substantially taller – though perhaps that’s our eyes playing tricks on us.
A new Dodge SRT Hellcat “Drag Pack” is reportedly on the way for 2019, complete with some kit borrowed from the outgoing Challenger SRT Demon, and a 725-horsepower version of Dodge’s supercharged, 6.2-liter Hellcat engine. But with the Hellcat twins now growing a bit long in the tooth, and a 700-plus-horsepower Shelby GT500 Mustang on the horizon, it’s possible that the rumored 725-horsepower version of the Hellcat V8 could find its way into every Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat variant, Drag Pack or no. We certainly hope this is the case.
