2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Costs $60,990

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat definitely makes some big numbers—707 hp and an 11.2-second quarter mile—and we now have one more important number: $60,990. That’s the official starting price, including destination and gas guzzler tax, of this ridiculously powerful musclecar, as Chrysler just announced full pricing for the 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup today.

Given the Challenger Hellcat’s dominant horsepower number, that price is remarkably close to other high-powered musclecar competitors like the $57,650, 580-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (including destination and gas guzzler tax) and the outgoing $55,935, 662-hp Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 (including destination).

A $60,990 starting price also doesn’t put the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat too far above the standard Dodge Challenger SRT 392 or R/T Scat Pack models, which now cost $39,490 for the Scat Pack and $46,990 for the SRT 392. Given that these two lesser Challengers make a relatively paltry 485 hp from its 6.4-liter Hemi V-8, ponying up the extra cash for the Hellcat’s 222 extra horsepower in addition to its numerous other chassis and appearance upgrades doesn’t seem all that unreasonable to us.

As for the rest of the updated 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup, the base Challenger SXT with the 3.6-liter V-6 costs $27,990 with destination and the Hemi V-8-powered Challenger R/T starts at $32,490. All versions of the 2015 Challenger go on sale this fall. Check out our sneak preview video of the 707-hp Hellcat below.

Whine (supercharger pun intended) all you want about your '68 this or '71 that being quicker than the Hellcat.  But remember, this vehicle will have a full factory warranty and will most likely be a comfortable, very street-able vehicle with gas mileage that is almost acceptable.  The Hellcat Challenger will also most likely be highly collectible in the not to distant future due to the fact that the current Challenger will probably be gone in a few more years, and time (and governments, environmentalists and other assorted kooks) will soon put an end to powerful, dinosaur-juice vehicles.  I like muscle car era vehicles as much as anyone, but my money is going to the modern muscle.

I owned a 1971 dodge demon 340 high perfomance with 3sp torqflight trany and pos tracktion and blew the doors off challengers and barracuda's. They should bring that back, it would probably out sell the hellcat.

My 1971 modified Challenger posted 1175 Drive shaft HP and ran an unofficial 5.91 1/4 @ Riverside. This is a rich boys toy.

Somebody at Chrysler fell and bumped their head. 61k for a challenger? Not likely. If I'm spending that kind of scratch I'm buying a base stingray. That's all I have to say about that.

@DAllen21678 Heck I paid that much for my 2014 Dodge Ram pickup truck..... Not a bad price for a car that would run away from any base Stingay LOL

@DAllen21678 Though I agree with you, but you and I both know that people will buy one just because it has 707hp, the "look at what I got" syndrome.

@LarryJr @DAllen21678 - run away...at least until the first curve or turn.

@mjubie @LarryJr @DAllen21678 Sweet that means its a true muscle car! If I wanted fast and handling I would drive my wife's BMW XM6 now that's better than any Chevy made today.
