Dodge Teases a Dual-Snorkel Hood for the Refreshed 2019 Challenger Hellcat


Yeah, Chevrolet had the Cowl Induction hood, Buick installed those cool mesh intakes on the early ’70s GS models, Pontiac had Ram Air, and Ford offered a Boss shaker on the Mach 1, but nobody amassed a collection of sweet muscle-era hood scoops quite like Ma Mopar. Mentioning Air Grabber, Shaker, and the Hemi Dart’s gaping maw merely nibbles at the smorgasbord of scoopage offered by the Chrysler Corporation in the 1960s and ’70s. Over the past decade or so, Chrysler has mined this heritage to great effect, and with the library far from exhausted, the designers at SRT figured they’d dip back into the past for the Challenger Hellcat’s latest bonnet.

The snorkel hood was perhaps most famously deployed on the 1970 Dodge Super Bee, arguably the flat-out meanest-looking street car Chrysler turned out in an era that thrived on a strangely whimsical brand of psychedelic aggro. By now, you’ve guessed that the snorkel hood is back in action for 2019, sitting atop SRT’s supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. Read more about the Dodge Teases a Dual-Snorkel Hood...
