- HEMI-engine fanciers have a choice of two normally aspirated V8s: a 375-horsepower 5.7-liter in the R/T, and a 6.4-liter with 485 horsepower in the R/T ScatPack duo and the SRT 392.
- The ferocious Hellcat’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 stirs up a jaw-dropping 707 horsepower, transforming the Challenger into the fastest muscle car ever produced.
