“The fast & devilish-looking car was added to the Department of Public Safety fleet of patrol vehicles after a judge awarded it to the agency.” The problem is, why did the Department of Public Safety restrict the dual-snorkel hood scoops with lights? Said scoops are functional, you know…
As opposed to pre-2018 Hellcats, which feature heat extractors, the dual-snorkel hood of 2019 and newer models also improves drag compared to the Air Grabber hood of the Demon. Every single variant of the Challenger SRT Hellcat uses the dual-snorkel design for the 2022 model year, including the 807-horsepower Super Stock and the recently-introduced Jailbreak.
On that note, Dodge prepares to bid farewell to the Challenger – and the Charger four-door sedan – after the 2023 model year. Before production comes to a screeching halt, the American brand will launch no fewer than seven “Last Call” special editions. The final one should’ve been presented at SEMA, but Dodge has recently admitted that it won’t be ready in time for the Specialty Equipment Market Association’s high-octane event.
It should also be mentioned that the Charger will be reinvented as an electric muscle car in due time, an e-muscle car that will be featured in Fast X.
