2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs. 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray
2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray vs. 2015 Dodge Challenger Review
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Dodge Challenger in the front seats.
With the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray you will definitely be making fewer
stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Challenger, due to its larger
tank size and better fuel economy.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of
a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price
(MSRP). The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will definitely make more of a dent
in your wallet than the Dodge Challenger, which has a much lower MSRP.
Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge
for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Dodge Challenger have similar
Since the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is much slimmer than the Dodge
Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded
parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, you'll have a
much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with
the Dodge Challenger.
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray doesn't do as good a
job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Challenger.
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has less horsepower than the Dodge
Challenger, so it will probably be somewhat slower.
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seats a lot fewer people than the Dodge
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray comes with essentially the same basic
warranty as the Dodge Challenger.
Hot Rod Magazine Tests the SpeedFactory Challenger
Hot Rod Magazine travels to California Speedway where we test the
SpeedFactory Challenger. The Vortech Supercharged Challenger easily runs in
the 11s and the only challenge we have is making it hook-up. Video by:
We Drive the Hellcat Challenger for a Week
We know the car is fast, but can you drive it every day? We borrowed a
Hellcat Challenger for a week and found out that it doesn’t need to sit
in the garage all week. It’s powerful, but it’s tame enough to drive
all week long.

SpeedFactory Challenger in a Supercharged Dodge Challenger SRT8 Grudge Match Drag Race
Mopars at the Strip is an annual MOPAR car show and Drag Race event held at
Las Vegas Motor Speedway every year. In 2009 SpeedFactory attended and
displayed our 600HP supercharged SpeedFactory Challenger - the first modern
Challenger to be supercharged. Next door to us was a supercharged
Challenger built by CDC/Group 2. The inevitable occurred - and Rob Wolf,
editor of Mopar Collector's Guide, did a "Pinks" style start for the grudge
match on the 1/4 mile drag strip. SpeedFactory driver Eddie Rosa emerged
victorious with a 1/4 time of 12.374 seconds at 112.66 mph, beating the
other car by 4/10 of a second.
The SpeedFactory Challenger has the Stage 3 Supercharger package, featuring a Vortech Supercharger at 5.5 lbs Boost, Hotchkis handling package, Magnaflow
catback Exhaust, and SpeedFactory
Signature package. Installed options include Richmond 3.55 gears and Boze
Tach style forged wheels. Everything else on the car is stock 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8. As shown in the video, the Challenger was on street tires.
On drags, the SpeedFactory Challenger runs in the 11s.
Thanks to our partners at Vortech Superchargers, Magnaflow Performance Exhaust, Richmond Gear and Boze Forged Wheels.
