The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat has gotten the facelift for 2019, but with the new super sedans out, can the Hellcat still keep up? The Hellcat has gotten 36.8% of the 76 votes in this article against its rivals from 2016-2018, but the M5 now gets the optional Competition Package, the new GT63 and GT63 S are out, the Panamera Turbo S came out just two years ago, the new CT6-V (not V-Sport) will serve as a temporary replacement for the CTS-V, and the Rapide has received more power thanks to a performance division known as AMR.

To be fair, all of the performance figures listed are a mix of TorqueStats estimates and factory 0-60 claims, with some corrections to the quarter-mile times. All of the curb weight figures listed are U.S.-specific.
