Yesterday's big announcement focusing on the new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat had plenty of stuff going for it – information, pictures and the rabid enthusiasm that always accompanies such an eagerly anticipated reveal. What it was lacking, though, was a proliferation of videos of the new model.

Sure, yesterday's news came with one clip, but today, Dodge has come through with five videos. We've arranged them in what we think will be the most entertaining order, covering the powertrain, before moving on to exterior and interior design, then on to a full CGI dissection of the SRT Hellcat before capping things off with a piece on the non-supercharged Challenger SRT392.

Take a look below for all five videos, then head into Comments and let us know what you think.

      I wonder if they will put this engine in a pickup truck. It would make a pretty good Ford Raptor competitor.

        That would be awesome, this power and a long travel suspension on a crew cab short bed ram. Pure awesome. Although I still am hopeful they will make a diesel wrangler rubicon based pick up.

          Dream on. They have already said they have no plans for a jeep pickup of any kind.

      Those seats looks exquisite. The best Challenger to date. Just wow.

      I really hope for a barracuda like car with the same powertrain but about 90%-95% of the size. I love SRT, my 14 GC SRT has been 100% reliable and fun to drive even in snow over the past 18K miles. It is without a doubt the best SUV I have ever owned but sometimes a car feels better. I would buy a slightly smaller version of this as a second vehicle without a doubt. Go SRT! Go Mopar!

      Finally, the Challenger is no longer a boat anchor...it's a fast boat anchor! Well done, Fiat Chrysler.

      I like how they worked in a bit of styling influence from the '70 GTX/Road Runner (the grille-headlight surround.)

      Now I am embarrassed, I watched all the videos and am still sitting here smiling like an idiot!

      I get it. The car needed a proper interior so that's where they put the limited budget for the refresh. It's still good looking so why change it much. I like the tweaks though I wish they'd have coke bottled or thinned down the mid section somehow.

        I too wouldn't mind if the Challenger had a leaner, more "Coke bottle" look. I suspect that the reason the went with taller dimensions and a thicker look was to make the Challenger appear shorter in length and narrower in width to try and keep it more pony car like in appearance. I remember reading something about that back around 2008, and a couple years later how Ford took a similar approach in refreshing the Mustang for 2010, by making it taller to appear shorter in length.

      Really looking forward to seeing this tear up some LA pavement in NCIS: LA. They have upgraded Sam's original SRT charger to the newer 392 SRT so I'm hoping they blow his old one up and replace it with a hellcat :D

      So much better than the new Mustang!

        As a really big dodge fan - no it isn't. the platform is over 10 years old and really needs to be replaced to keep pace more modern offerings. The hellcat challenger It only has 2 advantages over the mustang: styling (which is subjective), and the massive, unapologetic horsepower, Hopefully both carry over to a new platform soon.

          I second that, looks wise, mustang is the ugliest of the modern muscle cars. This one takes 1st place on curb appeal.

        That depends on what your definition of "better" is. Performance wise? Since none of us yet know the performance specs of this new top of the line Challenger, or that of the 2015 Mustang, I'd have to take a shot in the dark and give the edge to the new Stang seeing as it is smaller and lighter. Curb appeal? That's debatable. Comfort/rear seat space? I'd definitely give the edge to the Challenger as being the "better" car. Practicality? I'd have to give the Challenger a slight edge, think guy who has kids, or wants something that can comfortably seat more than one of his adult friends at a time. Standing out from the crowd/wow factor? For the time being, I'd have to give the newly redesigned Mustang the advantage there, but in the long term, the Challenger would win out there too as the Mustangs start to become more and more common place, and people become used to seeing one around every corner. I'd compare it to how people react when they see an old Jeep CJ vs. a 69-72 Chevy Blazer K5. Everyone knows what a Jeep looks like, but when they see the Blazer, they say "wow, what is that"? So you see, it really depends what you're after, or for many, where your loyalties lie. The two are similar but also different in noticeable ways. I love cars like the Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro as they are a breath of fresh air from all of the mundane sedans, SUVs, and more subdued looking Japanese 2+2 sports cars, and German sport luxury cars I see in a given day, more the automotive world a much more interesting place. Enjoy.

          Gotta love how well thought and objective out posts get down voted here... What's wrong? Reading comprehension and critical thinking not your forte? Stupid education system...

      I'm sorry, but I have to chuckle when I see a shot of this land yacht on a road course.
