Inspired by the iconic 1971 original, all 2015 Dodge Challengers take on a bold new appearance that draws on the 1971 model’s split-grille and split-tail lamp cues, updated to 2015 with four signature LED headlamp halo surrounds offset by piano black trim. The 2015 Challenger’s signature muscle car proportions and large thruster rear-quarter panels stand out, while fender and belt lines at the front and rear of the car create a sleeker appearance. Dodge offers the 2015 Challenger in eight different variants: 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. The entry-level SXT and SXT Plus are powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar six-cylinder engine with the same 305 horsepower as before. Moving on to the R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker and R/T Plus Shaker, these mid-range models are propelled by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 mill rated at 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
The most powerful Challengers come equipped with the 6.4-liter HEMI Scat Pack and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, which together put out 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Along with the new eight-speed transmission, these two do the 0-60 mph in the mid 4-second range. The 2015 Dodge Challenger will be available this fall.
