But the hood is for more than scaring innocent passersby. Dodge didn’t say much about the 2019 Hellcat in a Wednesday press release on the car, other than that its “sinister” new hood is “pays homage to the distinctive Mopar design themes from some of its most famous muscle cars” from the 1960s and ‘70s. It also said the hood and its gigantic dual snorkels are fully functional, meaning there will be a lot of air intake into the monstrosity of an engine we can expect it to run.

Dodge didn’t give specifics on that engine, other than that it’ll be supercharged like the 707-horsepower 2018 Hellcat was. (What else would it be? It’s a being from Hell. Of course it’ll be supercharged. Hopefully the road to hell is straight.)

For now Dodge isn’t saying, and there’s no word on whether a dual-snorkel hood will be standard, optional, or offered on the related Charger SRT Hellcat . 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat dual snorkel hood .

The fender flares in the teaser photo show that it’ll probably have some kind of widebody option, whether it’s a $6,000 performance package like it was on the 2018 Hellcat or standard on the car like it was on the 840-HP Demon. Without a new model year of the Demon coming out of the factory ready to destroy every (straight) road around, we could very well see a more intense baseline Hellcat.

As for details on the Hellcat, we and the rest of the world will have to wait until summer to find out more. If anything, we know the power won’t disappoint.
