Together with the 2015 Dodge Charger, the current Dodge Challenger has been exposed at the New York Auto Show 2014. The heavily revised 2015 Dodge Challenger is minimally changed outside, however its all-new interior brings it into the modern-day decade with a retro feel– and while the V-6 model is a pleasant touring car, the new high-end Hemi offers it new drag-strip credibility.
2015 Dodge Challenger – Interior and Exterior
The 2015 Dodge Challenger has always been the largest and blockiest of the muscle cars, providing it substantial road presence. Considered via a different lens, the Challenger has actually been slightly even more of a visiting coupe– large and comfy, with a supple trip on lengthy trips. Now that persona is joined by a range of much more highly effective, rip-up-the-track versions on top end, for Challenger customers who desire to equal one of the most effective automobiles in the competition’s lineups.
The changed outside styling adopts cues from the traditional 1971 Challenger, including a brand-new split grille in a slimmer front opening up with projector headlamps bordered by LED halos, an obvious and fully useful “energy lump” hood, and LED tail lamps in a glossy piano black border. The basic shape continues to be unmodified, with a long nose, flat hood and deck lid, thick Seventies-inspired roof covering columns and a noticable kickup in the waist. It keeps the Challenger a lot more trustworthy to its decades-old forefathers in comparison to either the Camaro or Mustang, which have actually progressed with the ages.
Inside, the 2015 Challenger’s interior has been totally revamped. The sweeping surface areas of hard black plastic are gone, switched out by a modern-day dash with soft-touch areas and a fully contemporary musical instrument cluster with a completely customizable 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) facility display screen. The available 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash includes the UConnect Access device, with applications and navigating and also the normal audio features.
The facility console has a higher advantage on the guest side, influenced by the 1971 Challenger, and the dashboard, tools, and console has light weight aluminum accents. Amongst the 14 options for indoor shade and trim is a traditional Houndstooth premium fabric that Dodge really calls a “throwback” to the 1970s, and costs natural leather and Alcantara suede high-performance seats.
2015 Dodge Challenger – Under the Hood
ust like the brand-new Charger, the 2015 Dodge Challenger is readily available in a host of requirements. These are the Challenger SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, 6.4-liter Scat Pack and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker. One of the most interesting two are the brand-new Scat Pack and Shaker models. Under the hood, the Challenger 6.4-liter Scat Pack is fitted with a 392 cubic inch V8 engine supplying 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque.
This powerplant can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automated. When outfitted with the automobile, the automobile needs to hit 100 km/h in the mid-four seconds. When it comes to the Shaker design, it is available in either 6.4-liter or 5.7-liter V8 engine specification. Just like the recently revealed 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker, it consists of the brand-new Shaker hood and a new cold air intake. It comes suited as typical with the Super Track Pak suspension system in addition to a brand-new graphics plan, sporting activity seats and Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres.
2015 Dodge Challenger Price and Safety
Manufacturing is set up to begin in the third quarter of 2014. Rates won’t be released until closer to the sale date, but the quite highest-end versions will likely come close to $60,000– taking them into some rarified territory. On the other hand, Challenger sales have actually improved gradually throughout its life, so there’s clearly a market for a retro muscle car.
