Dodge has launched the 2015 Dodge Challenger which arrives with increased power, all new interior, segment first 8-speed auto gearbox, an all new Scat Pack model, Scat Pack Shaker trims and more.
Dodge hasn’t given the Challenger a drastic makeover but has definitely made the new model look even more retro. Taking inspiration from the 1971 Challenger, Dodge has restyled the exterior with a redesigned bonnet with a larger bulge, a new split grille, projector fog lights, LED halo headlamps and LED taillamps.
The interior is all new and offers a perfect blend of a retro yet contemporary look and modern features. There is a new 1971-inspired high sill center console, aluminum bezels, driver-focused instrument panel, 14 interior colors and trims, leather high-performance seats and more. Technology upgrades include an all new 8.4-inch touchscreen media center featuring Uconnect Access system, electronic shifter, Keyless Enter ‘n Go with push button start and a 7-inch customizable display between the tachometer and speedometer. The safety features list has also been updated with class-exclusive Forward Collision Warning, Rear Cross Path detection, Blind-spot Monitoring and adaptive cruise control.
One of the most important changes this year is the new segment-exclusive standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission available over the entire range. The R/T model is powered by a 5.7 liter HEMI V8 that produces 375 hp and peak torque of 410 lb.-ft. Paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard, the R/T sprints from 0 – 60 mph in a little over 5 seconds. With the 8-speed auto onboard, the R.T takes close to 5.5 seconds for the same sprint.
Dodge will also offer Scat Pack and Scat Pack Shaker models. The former comes with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that delivers a whopping 485 hp and peak torque of 475 lb-ft and a transmission of your choice(6-speed manual or all new 8-speed auto). The Scat Pack also adds a Brembo brake system, 20 inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, bumblebee tail stripe and gloss black grille surround.
The Shaker model can be ordered either with the 6.4 liter heart or the standard 5.7 liter unit. The same features a functional hood scoop with a cold air intake, standard Super Track Pak suspension package, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, sport seats and a black graphics package.
