The Challenger SRT’s 6.2L Engine
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is one of the most anticipated American Muscle Cars as of late. The main reason is Dodge’s huge claim of deeming the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat the most powerful American Muscle Car of all time! The Hellcat is powered by a 6.2L engine claiming a monumental 707 horsepower.
One of the most ingenious features the 6.2L Hemi Engine offers is the so-called “Air Catcher” cool-air intake. While this may not be a new idea for engines with a lot of horsepower, the way Dodge implements the “Air Catcher” is as stealthy as it is innovative. The driver-side’s inner head lamp is simply a port with LED’s around the opening in the head lamp to give the illusion of being a light. The purpose of the “Air Catcher” is to be able to create a cool-air intake opening for the 8.0L airbox behind the driver-side head lamp.
