The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Gets a New Look in the Octane Edition
It’s an old saying that goes “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” but take a look at the Charger. The seventh generation has been around for a while, since 2011, and Dodge is still finding ways to update the sedan without having to come out with an all-new model. It boasts some features that were previously not available for the performance sedan.
The Charger has been freshened up to include the Satin Black Package as well as the new body stripe options, while there is no word on the Widebody version for the SRT Hellcat it is likely coming soon. Speaking of the SRT Hellcat, the 707-horsepower is now receiving an Octane Edition, only available for a limited time, as Dodge will discontinue this at the end of the 2019 model year. There’s an optional appearance package for the 204-mph sedan available with the car’s starting price of $67,245 MSRP (plus destination fee).
Dodge sells the Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition with dark accents and it comes in either White Knuckle or Pitch Black with full-length Satin Black center stripe and Octane Red accent tracers on each edge.
Dodge will have 20-inch aluminum forged wheels which are borrowed from the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 along with Brembo brakes equipped with red six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers at the rear. Debuting on the Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition are the SRT Performance seats adorned with the SRT Hellcat logo, a Houndstooth insert, and contrasting red stitching. There’s more of the red stitching throughout the interior, plus red seatbelts for a more significant visual impact.
On the inside, you’ll find the glossy black accents and a black-on-black look for the SRT Hellcat badge on the instrument panel. Orders for the Octane Edition will be on display starting this fall and dealers are already taking orders. The Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition rolls with “blacked-out” look; it’s loaded with a unique combination of equipment and trim, features that were not previously available on the Charger SRT Hellcat.
If you want more, the limited-run Charger also has black badges, which gives the spoiler in the back and for the front grille, a dark look. It’s available for a limited time on the Charger Octane Edition which is available at $67,245 (plus destination fee). Dealer orders are open now, and the 2019 Dodge Charger Octane Edition will start arriving in dealerships in fall 2019.
The story of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, known to be the fastest, quickest, and most powerful sedan in the world, keeps growing with the limited-edition 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition arrival. “In the world of muscle cars, limited editions are valued by enthusiasts for their uniqueness and collectability, both today and in the future,” said Tom Sacoman, Director of Product, Passenger Car Brands, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT – FCA US LLC. “The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition is the newest factory-custom model designed for our performance customers who want to stand apart from the pack.”
The Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition is available to order now with its unique combination of trim and equipment. It includes some features not previously available on the 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 powered sedan. The “blacked-out” theme inside and out is a critical visual clue to the 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition.
