AUBURN HILLS, Michigan The new supercharged 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine in the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT is rated at 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, Chrysler said on Tuesday.

The 2015 Challenger will arrive at Dodge dealerships in the third quarter of 2014. Pricing will be announced later this summer.

Chrysler said it is claiming the title of the "most powerful muscle car ever." This is also Dodge's most powerful V8 engine ever.

Dodge said the muscle car will come standard with two key fobs — red and black.

"The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full 707 hp and torque potential of the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine," Chrysler said, "while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output of 500 hp."
