UPDATE 3-21-2023: The 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170 has been revealed, and it's more shocking that you'd expect. Check out our latest coverage of the very last ICE-powered Challenger Demon!
Dodge teased its final "Last Call" Challenger model, and it's anticipated to be a lot more potent than the Demon. It's highly speculated that it will be called the Hellcat Goblin, though that has not yet been officially confirmed by Dodge. The American automaker, however, has been releasing a series of teasers that highlight various aspects of the upcoming Last Call model, leading up to an event on March 20. Depending on where you live, that could already be today, and while there's little time left to wait, here are the things that we know so far about the so-called Hellcat Goblin.
The "Hellcat Goblin" Will Outmuscle The Demon
The final (fifth) teaser leading up to the March 20 event features a sort of creepy leprechaun monster that has been the main protagonist throughout this teaser campaign. This time the leprechaun is seen jumping out of a plane and down onto the Las Vegas strip, where the big reveal is expected. The leprechaun is wearing a device on his wrist that momentarily shows the 140 mph speed he is experiencing before blasting off past the speed of sound.
So what's 140 mph trying to indicate? We're sure that the final Last Call Challenger will obvioulsy do more than 140 mph. After all, the Demon could do more than 211 mph, and a third teaser (as shown) indicated its blower size (and its title also said that this upcoming model could do 215 mph). When the stock Challenger Demon came out, it did the quarter mile in 9.65 seconds, and guess what, at a speed of 140 mph. Based on the monster leprechaun blasting off past the speed of sound, we can expect that the so-called Hellcat Goblin is outright faster than the Demon.
The "Hellcat Goblin" Is Set To Smash Records
YouTuber RacerX also has a good analysis of all the past teasers. From the first teaser that showed a leprechaun suddenly transforming thanks to being intravenously fed with E85 to the second teaser highlighting "7.1 lbs" which most likely indicates how much boost the Goblin has not over the Demon but over the Hellcat, the presenter offers a good amount of condensed information regarding the final Last Call model.
What you're definitely keen to find out is what will be at the heart of this Hellcat Goblin. The fourth teaser showcases a leprechaun using a jackhammer that indicates 2538 PSI, and this potentially points out the cylinder pressure of its speculated 6.2-liter Hellephant engine with 1,000 horsepower, that again, will outmuscle not just the competition, but also even the Demon. For reference, the Hellcat made almost 1600 PSI, while the Demon made almost 2000 PSI. In terms of outright power, your guesses are as good as ours at this point. The Challenger SRT Demon put out up to 840 horsepower, but the Hellephant crate engine is capable of pumping out 1,000 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of torque.
Either way, the launch of the final Last Call Challenger model before the muscle car transitions from fossil fuels to having a degree electrons is debuting very soon, and you can be sure that we've got you covered.
