Fresh design; modern safety features; wide range of models; available all-wheel drive; good gas mileage for V6 models; supercar performance from SRT Hellcat
The 2015 Dodge Charger is offered in SE, SXT, R/T, R/T Road & Track, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat trims.
Charger SE and SXT models come with a 292-horsepower, 3.6L Pentastar V6, which the EPA rates at 23 mpg combined fuel economy. Both models come standard with rear-wheel drive but can be fitted with all-wheel drive. The R/T models channel Dodge's muscle-car past, stepping up to a 5.7L Hemi V8 with 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. The engine utilizes variable cam timing as well as a four-cylinder mode for fuel saving when the extra power isn't needed. R/T cars also feature several performance upgrades to the suspension, exhaust, brakes, and seats. Top of the Charger heap are the SRT models: The SRT 392 is powered by a 6.4L Hemi V8 and delivers 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque; meanwhile, the SRT Hellcat features a supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 good for 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet. All Chargers make use of a standard TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.
The Charger SE comes well equipped with 17-inch wheels, keyless entry and push-button start, a power driver's seat, air conditioning, other power accessories, and a Uconnect 5.0-inch touch screen. SXT models add 18-inch wheels, cloth sport seats with heated front seats, 4-way lumbar adjustability for the driver, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, one year of SiriusXM radio, a voice-command Uconnect interface with 8.4-inch touch screen and Bluetooth connectivity, and a 276-watt Alpine 6-speaker premium audio system.
In addition to the Hemi V8 and performance upgrades, the R/T provides 20-inch wheels, rev matching from a beefier TorqueFlite transmission, plus paddle shifters and Sport Mode. Also included are Alcantara suede and Nappa leather sport seats. The R/T Road & Track includes HID projector headlights and auto-dimming driver's side exterior mirror, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, power adjustable pedals and steering column and upgraded LED interior lighting.
The SRT 392 is equipped much like the R/T Road & Track, though you'll also find a functional hood scoop and oil cooler, front and rear climate control outlets, unique interior appointments, a rear back-up camera, and adaptive damping, which adjusts firmness and allows Auto, Sport and Track modes. Finally the Hellcat brings performance-tuned steering, aluminum interior accents, and, of course, 707 horsepower.
Notable options across the model range include the Driver Confidence Group, with a rear back-up camera, power heated foldaway mirrors, ParkSense parking assist and blind-spot detection. Navigation is available on SXT and both R/T models, while a 19-speaker Harman/Kardon 900-watt premium audio system is available on the two SRT models.
The Dodge Charger receives several noteworthy updates for 2015. Most evident is a complete exterior restyle. The familiar 4-door shape remains, but a harder, more contemporary edge replaces the retro look that defined the previous car. This includes new LED lighting front and rear. The interior has been revised as well, with a new 7-inch TFT gauge cluster, new instrument panel center stack, and new 3-spoke steering wheel. An 8-speed automatic transmission is now standard on all Chargers, while all-wheel drive is now limited solely to V6 models. Finally, new special models include the R/T Road & Track, as well as the SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat, which comes with a supercharged 6.2L V8 that makes 707 horsepower. Dodge claims the Charger Hellcat will hit 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, on its way to an incredible 204-mph top speed. Prices range from $27,995 for the rear-wheel-drive SE to $63,995 for the SRT Hellcat.
The Dodge Charger is a full-size sedan, offering strong V6 and V8 engines, along with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive on select V6 models. Chrysler claims that the Charger's all-wheel-drive system is the most advanced system offered in its class, as it completely disconnects the front wheels when not needed. Styling has always been a big part of the Charger's appeal, and while it relied on a retro-muscle look for years, a complete redesign gives it a much more look while still setting it apart from the crowd.
Charger SE and SXT V6 models return a best-in-class 31 mpg on the highway, while performance-oriented R/T and SRT models are phenomenally athletic. On another level is the Hellcat; the car rivals most supercars, with 0?60mph coming in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 204 mph.
