For the New York Auto Show 2014, Dodge has officially unveiled the 2015 Dodge Charger. Featuring brand new styling across the board, the new Charger certainly features a design much more appropriate for the times than the outgoing model. Alongside the visual changes, there have been a couple engine developments made.
Under the hood, the range topping 2015 Dodge Charger maintains the massive 5.7-iter HEMI V8 of the previous car delivering 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. This potent powerplant is mated to a new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Performance times for this model, or any others, haven’t been released but thanks to four-cylinder deactivation technology for the 5.7-liter V8, we do at least know it is quite efficient. Further down the road, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT will be revealed and it will inevitably produce even more power from its HEMI V8.
The 2015 Dodge Charger is also available with a new 3,6-liter V6 Pentastar engine mated to the same transmission and delivering a total of 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, this engine in Charger SXT specification with the Rallye Appearance Group package which includes a cold air intake, new exhaust and ECU modifications, produces 300 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque.
In the cabin, the new Charger features a large 8.4 inch touchscreen in the dash which provides 3D navigation and is capable of downloading apps.
From the outside, your eye is immediately drawn to the heavily revised front fascia. The new front end incorporates a stunning black out grille, new horizontal Led daytime running lights as well as new curved headlights with an LED light beam around the edge. Overall, the 2015 Dodge Charger maintains the same overall shape as the previous-gen model but brings it right into the 21st century.
