Do you need to fulfill your need for speed while taking your family to the grocery store? If so, the 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has you covered. In case you’re one of the few that’s unfamiliar with this four-door beast, the Charger Hellcat is the most powerful sedan that you can currently buy. For a little more information on this super sedan, here are seven important facts about the 2022 Charger SRT Hellcat.
1. Every 2022 Dodge Charger Hellcat has over 700 horsepower
For 2022, there are three different Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat trim levels. No matter which trim level you choose, the best part is that it will be powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces over 700 hp. According to U.S. News, the Charger Hellcat makes 717 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, but if you upgrade to the Hellcat Redeye, then you’ll get 797 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque.
If that’s not enough power, then you might like the new-for-2022 Charger Jailbreak Edition which turns up the power to the tune of 807 hp. Every engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and only offered in a rear-drive configuration.
2. The Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye can get up to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds
In case you’re wondering what all of that horsepower translates to when it’s put to the ground, Dodge says that the Charger Hellcat Redeye can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. Yes, that’s as fast as most exotic cars, but for half the price.
3. Yes, the Charger Hellcat can handle twisty canyon roads
While you might think that every Charger Hellcat is only good for going in a straight line, you would be wrong. In fact, every Charger Hellcat model comes standard with a three-mode Bilstein adaptive damping suspension that’s specially tuned by Dodge’s SRT engineers. Additionally, you’ll find Brembo big brake calipers and rotors at every corner in addition to 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in sticky Pirelli rubber.
4. The 2022 Charger Hellcat Jailbreak offer buyers the ultimate customization
If you’re the type that likes to customize your cars exactly to your liking, now you can have Dodge do it for you. The 2022 Charger Hellcat Jailbreak edition allows buyers to customize the car’s exterior color, hood color, roof color, wheel style, and interior colors to their liking. Of course, it costs a little more than your standard-issue Hellcat, but it’s worth it if you can get exactly what you want.
5. Every Hellcat comes standard with an array of comfort features

6. The Charger Hellcat consumes as much gas as five Toyota Prii
One of the major downsides to the Challenger Hellcat is its fuel economy. According to the EPA, the Charger Hellcat can get up to 12 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. U.S. News notes that it would take about five Toyota Prii (plural for Prius) to consume the same amount of gas in the city. However, the Charger Hellcat driver will definitely have a lot more fun in the process.
7. The Dodge Charger Hellcat has more cargo room than a Toyota Camry
The Dodge Charger Hellcat is a sedan so its practicality extends past its comfortable and spacious cabin. It also has a large trunk that measures 16.5 cubic feet.
