No More Manual Transmission In Dodge Challenger
Dodge is taking down its Manual Transmission from legendary Challenger Hellcat. Dodge enthusiasts are disappointed with the disappearance of manual transmissions as a vehicle option for more than a decade. Now 2022 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is added to the list, as it is no longer offered with a 6-speed manual transmission. While many Dodge Challenger models come with the stick shift.
Manual Transmission Removed From Challenger Hellcat
Dodge removed the Hellcat’s 6-speed manual option from Dodge’s online configurator in the late 2021 model year. So, if you want a Hellcat and its supercharged 6.2L V8, it will be paired with a TorqueFlight 8-speed automatic transmission.
A Dodge spokesperson described it as a temporary situation and said that a revised calibration for this powertrain combo will be coming that will allow the stick-shift Hellcat to go on sale again.
Dodge Challenger Hellcat performance & top speed
The supercharged V8 cranks out 889 Nm at 4,800 RPM with a top speed of 196 mph and it can go straight 0-60 in 3.6 seconds despite all that torque and fishtailing.
