Eighteen automotive journalists evaluated a range of vehicle types — cars, trucks, SUVs, and crossovers — across several categories including, storage solutions, performance, safety systems, comfort, and fuel efficiency, at the first annual Southwest Lifestyle Media Drive. The evaluations and events were handled at the Chandler, Arizona Bondurant Racing School

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is about as much fun as any vehicle we’ve driven. You can’t help but get a rush from the engine growl, the all-out power, and the superb handling. Yet, it’s surprisingly manageable and comfortable enough to be an everyday driver — if you can resist the temptation to push the speed limit,” said Becky Antioco, president of the Southwest Lifestyle Media group.

The intense 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye churns out a road-shaking 797 horsepower, and 707 lb-ft of torque thanks to its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI high-output V8 engine, making it the fastest muscle car in the Dodge lineup. Only 3.4 seconds is necessary to catapult the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye from 0 to 60 miles per hour. The dual-snorkel hood maximizes air intake and nods to the 1971 Dodge Demon and muscle cars from the past.
