Fiat Chrysler Automobiles unleashed the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat in 2014, and car enthusiasts rejoiced. The SRT Hellcat is the fastest and most powerful muscle car on the market, throttling in with a record breaking 707 horsepower and achieving a 10.8 second quarter mile with drag radials at 126 miles per hour! Prior to uncaging the Hellcat, engineers at Chrysler and Pennzoil joined forces to test Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ 0W-40 Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus Technology.


Since the Challenger made its momentous return to Dodge’s lineup in 2008, Challengers have been rolling off the line stock with the famous HEMI® engine but the engineers at SRT couldn’t stop there; for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the engine has been upgraded to a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 with a power output of 707 horsepower – enough to throttle the SRT Hellcat to a mind-blowing top speed of 204 mph!



“When consumers are in the driver seat of this dream, they can’t help but be tempted to put the pedal to the metal, and in that case, they need an exceptional lubricant capable of providing a superior level of protection,” said Chris Hayek, Global Brand Director, Shell Lubricants Passenger Car Motor Oil. “PurePlus Technology, a patented, revolutionary process that converts pure natural gas into the first-of-its-kind, high quality full synthetic base oil offers a superior lubricant for the most advanced engines, with positive effects on speed, startup, fuel efficiency and overall performance.”

To maintain every ounce of the 707 horsepower of the 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, consumers should follow their manufacturer’s manual motor oil change interval recommendation. Pennzoil Ultra Platinum with PurePlus Technology is the motor oil recommended by Chrysler to for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat.



According to Richard Dixon, Pennzoil Technology Manager, consumers can experience a loss of horsepower from a number of causes, many of which are a direct result of not following their manufacturer’s manual for oil recommendation such as over extending oil drain intervals, dirt and deposit build up on critical engine parts, and more. Pennzoil Ultra Platinum with PurePlus Technology Full Synthetic motor oil help ensure that the Hellcat can make the most of its bold SRT engine, without compromising one area protection for the sake of another.


The partnership between Chrysler and Pennzoil gives consumers the opportunity to experience the new level of craftsmanship, technology and heart-pounding performance that the Hellcat offers that wouldn’t be possible without Pennzoil Ultra Platinum running through the veins.
