PERFORMANCE FEATURES

SRT POWER CHILLER®

This award-winning feature diverts air-conditioning refrigerant from the interior cabin to the chiller unit. After being cooled by ambient air passing through a low-temperature radiator at the front of the vehicle, charged air coolant flows through the SRT Power Chiller® unit, where it's cooled even further. The chilled coolant then flows to the heat exchangers in the supercharger, lowering the temperature of the intake air even more. This feature significantly reduces air intake temperature to improve engine performance. It is standard on the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.

LINE LOCK

Line lock engages the front brakes to hold the Challenger stationary but leaves the rear wheels free for a burnout to heat up and clean the rear tires to improve launch. This system can engage for up to 200 rear wheel revolutions for a controlled rolling burnout to get your tires race ready.

LAUNCH ASSIST

Launch assist resolves the issue of wheel hop, with wheel speed sensors watching for signs that the tires are slipping or sticking. If hop is detected, the engine control module reduces torque to maximize traction without having to lift the throttle, reducing loads in the driveline from wheel hop by up to 20 percent.

LAUNCH CONTROL

Launch control holds the engine at the optimal launch RPM and waits for you to release the brake, using engine torque management to optimize wheel slip for maximum straight-line acceleration.

RACE COOLDOWN

When the engine shuts down, Race Cooldown keeps the engine’s cooling fan and low-temperature coolant pump running to lower the supercharger air cooler temperature, which can be tracked on the SRT® Performance Pages to determine when the supercharger is at its optimum temperature for another run.

NATURALLY FAST

The Dodge Challenger 1320 is the fastest ¼-mile naturally aspirated muscle car.

SRT® DRIVE MODES

SRT® Drive Modes, standard on R/T Scat Pack and SRT models, allow the user to customize vehicle settings for a more personalized driving experience. Combined with Performance Pages, drivers get a detailed look of what's going on behind the scenes.
