Dodge Prices 2015 Charger Lineup

2015DodgeCharger

Hot on the 2015 Dodge Challenger's trail of burnt rubber comes its four-door muscle-car mate, the Charger. Chrysler has announced pricing on the newly updated Charger lineup — including the 707-horsepower SRT Hellcat — with the starting price of all but one model increasing by no more than $1,000. The base SE trim starts at $28,990, including a $995 destination charge. That's $1,000 more than the 2014 version, but Chrysler says it's the "most-equipped entry Charger model ever." The 2015 Charger is available in SE, SXT, R/T and SRT trims.

Last year's SRT8 models are replaced by the SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat, the latter of which starts at a range-topping $64,990. Up from three in 2014, the lineup now offers four engines: the base 3.6-liter V-6, 5.7-liter V-8, 6.4-liter V-8 and the Hellcat's supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. For comparison, the 2015 Challenger starts at $27,990 with destination and tops out at $60,990 for the Hellcat, the 2014 Chrysler 300 starts between $32,390 and $50,926 for the SRT8 version, and fellow full-size sedan the 2014 Chevrolet Impala starts between $27,670 and $36,715 for the top LTZ style.

Recall Alert: 290,000 Chrysler Sedans, Wagons, SUVs

2008DodgeChargerRecall

Vehicles Affected: More than 290,000 model-year 2008 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans, Dodge Magnum station wagons, and Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee SUVs, all manufactured before May 12, 2008

The Problem: Ignition keys may not fully return to the On position after rotation to the Start position during engine startup, instead remaining between the Start and On positions. If this happens, windshield defroster and wiper function may be lost, though not airbag function. Also possible, though less probable according to Chrysler, the ignition key could move through the On position to the Accessory or Off positions, causing reduced braking power and a loss of engine power, power steering and safety features such as front airbags. The automaker, which announced the voluntary recall today, said it is unaware of any injuries related to the problem.

The Fix: Chrysler said it will notify owners of when they can schedule service, which will be done for free. In the interim, the automaker advises drivers to confirm that their ignition keys are set in the On, or 1 o'clock, position after starting the vehicle to ensure engine power and functionality of all systems, including front airbags. Also, Chrysler says to separate ignition keys from key rings or other keys.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 for more info.

Thieves Still Favor the Honda Accord

2013HondaAccord

As is often the case in these "most-stolen" lists, the vehicles that are most popular with those who buy cars are commensurately popular with those who steal them. Of the top 10 popularly pilfered vehicles on the Des Plaines, Ill.,-based National Insurance Crime Bureau's annual "Hot Wheels" list, seven are also mainstays among the nation's top 10 best-selling cars each month.

Topping the list is the consistently beloved Honda Accord, with nearly 54,000 thefts in the 2013 counting period, followed by the Honda Civic (45,000) and full-size Chevrolet pickup trucks (28,000). Moreover, while No. 8 combines the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee into one listing, it should be noted that these are two entirely separate vehicles, one a crossover and the other a full-size SUV.

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: First Look

2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat 031_AB

  • Competes with: Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, BMW M5, Chevrolet SS
  • Looks like: The meanest, baddest, kick-ass Dodge Charger ever built
  • Drivetrain: 707-horsepower, supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 with eight-speed automatic; rear-wheel drive
  • Hits dealerships: Early 2015

You knew it was coming. There was no way Dodge was going to make an engine like the Hellcat V-8, a 707-horsepower, supercharged monster motor, and limit its use to the 2015 Challenger SRT. Sure enough, Dodge proved the internet rumor mill right by unveiling the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat sedan today, christening it the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.

What'll she do? Zero-to-60 mph in 3.6 seconds, two-tenths of a second quicker than a Challenger SRT Hellcat. The National Hot Rod Association has certified it as running the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds flat on street tires with a top speed of 204 mph. It's only 100 pounds heavier than the Challenger Hellcat, and it's faster than the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, BMW M5, Aston Martin Rapide or any other sedan you can name.

Dodge Means Performance: SRT Comes Back to the Fold

IMG_2422

With the Chrysler brand headed for mainstream battle against the likes of Ford, Hyundai, Honda and Chevrolet, the Dodge brand is about to take a much more specialized route: performance, and lots of it.

The bigger news: The SRT brand is being folded into Dodge, ending the confusion of whether it was something separate and apart. The focus on performance and the new directive not to compete with Chrysler brand means that some models will be discontinued, namely the Avenger midsize sedan and Grand Caravan minivan.

What Jeep's Future Looks Like

High-performance variants of the Dart and Journey are on tap, with high-output turbocharged engines; the SRT versions of the Challenger and Charger will get supercharged Hemi V-8 engines. Here's what to expect from the Dodge brand over the next five years:

2015 Dodge Charger Video

Although the 2015 Dodge Charger is just a revision of the current generation, its new look could be mistaken for a redesign. Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays checked out the muscle car's debut at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, immediately taking note of the Dart-like front-end styling that largely abandons the Charger's retro look in favor of more streamlined curves and downsized rear end. A treat for buyers is a standard performance-data feature in the gauge cluster. Check out the video for more.

Video: 2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger in Motion

2015 Dodge Charger: Up Close

ChargerUC1

Dodge is a little surprised by who's buying the current Charger: The brand says more than half of Charger buyers are the coveted millennial generation, and a third don't even cross-shop any competitors before they buy one. For Charger buyers, the car isn't a family sedan. It's a style statement, with its aggressive lines, big engines and in-your-face attitude.

More 2014 New York Auto Show Coverage

When it came time to update the Charger and Challenger, Dodge decided to take a new route with the Charger. The Challenger is retro, and the 2015 model plays up that aspect; the new 2015 Charger is now more modern than the outgoing one, giving Dodge buyers a choice in how they want their performance — old school or latest thing.
