2015 Dodge Challenger Coupe Unveiled in New York


Available in eight trim levels.

Dodge has revealed the 2015 Challenger at the New York Auto Show, announcing the refreshed model is available in eight different trims: 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. All boast refreshed styling inspired by the 1971 Challenger, an upgraded suspension, plusher interiors and an optional TorqueFlite eight-speed auto.

The final two variants are the most powerful, sporting a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 rated at 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. When mated to the new eight-speeder, 0-60 mph is clocked in the mid fours, the quarter mile in the low twelves, with top speed a claimed 182 mph. They also come with Brembo brakes and 20-inch alloys. The SXT and SXT Plus entry level models come with Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that’s capped at 305 hp, while the rest of the range gets a 5.7-liter HEMI good for 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Challenger is distinguished from the outgoing model by a new split grille, LED DRLs, revised taillights, and a more pronounced hood bulge.
