Dodge Prices 2015 Challenger Lineup

2015DodgeChallenger

Dodge's iconic muscle coupe will flex its way into dealerships later this summer, but it won't necessarily stretch your budget on the base-model end with a starting-price increase of only $500. The 2015 Challenger starts at $27,990 (all prices include a $995 destination charge).

2015 Dodge Challenger: First Look

The Challenger is available with four different powertrains, starting with the base SXT model, followed by R/T, R/T Scat Pack and SRT 392, and the much-hyped, 707-horsepower SRT Hellcat. SXT models again come with a 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 305 hp and 268 pounds-feet of torque. New for 2015 is an eight-speed automatic transmission that Dodge says boosts fuel economy by as much as 11 percent; last year's version was EPA rated at 18/27/21 mpg city/highway/combined.

Standard exterior features include a 1971-inspired split satin-chrome grille, dual exhaust with bright tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels, a "power bulge hood" with twin functional intakes and power body-colored folding heated side mirrors. Inside the SXT comes with cloth seating, a stamped aluminum instrument panel bezel, a six-way power driver's seat, a six-speaker audio system, dual-zone temperature control, keyless entry with push-button start and a leather-wrapped tilt/telescoping steering wheel and shift knob.

Photo Gallery: 100 Years of Dodge

14556513971_db6f3899b5

The Dodge brand just celebrated its 100th anniversary by throwing a party at Meadow Brook Hall, a historic mansion built by the widow of one of the brand's founders in suburban Detroit. The media was invited to see where the brand has been during the last 100 years in preparation for the relaunch of the marque as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' North American performance brand

Dodge Means Performance: SRT Comes Back to the Fold

On hand were a collection of Dodge's most notable concept cars from the last 20 years, as well as something truly special — another collection of just over two dozen historically significant vehicles from the company's own museum. Vehicles ranged from an original 1915 Dodge Brothers Touring car to a smattering of late '60s/early '70s muscle cars, right up to more modern cars like the latest Charger. Even more remarkable — they were there for journalists to drive on short loops around the mansion's grounds. Have a look through the photo gallery to get a glimpse of some classic Mopars.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Exceeds 700 hp

Hellcat

When a small hammer isn't getting the job done, the most obvious solution is to get a bigger hammer, right? Dodge is bringing out its biggest hammer with the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat — its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 makes a whopping 707 horsepower. Dodge says it's the most powerful V-8 it's ever produced and the most powerful muscle car ever.

The full 707 hp is unleashed when drivers use a red key fob; the second black key fob lowers output to a measly 500 hp. Is it overkill that the black key loses 200 horsepower and still has more power than a regular 485-hp Challenger SRT? Hell, no; bring it on. The Challenger SRT Hellcat hits dealerships in the third quarter of 2014. There's no word yet on pricing.

Recall Alert: 2009-10 Dodge Journey, 2008-2010 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country

2010-dodge-grand-caravan

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 438,000 model-year 2009-10 Dodge Journey crossovers manufactured between June 29, 2007, and June 17, 2010, as well as model-year 2008-10 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans manufactured between Jan. 26, 2007, and June 17, 2010

The Problem: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is reporting that a road condition that could jar the vehicle may cause the ignition switch to move out of the Run position, turning off the engine and disabling safety systems like airbags, power steering and power braking. This is an expansion of a previous recall, and Chrysler said the issue has been linked to two rear-end collisions.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition switch for free. NHTSA is cautioning owners to remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key.

What Owners Should Do: Chrysler has not yet announced an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Recall Alert: 2014 Dodge Durango, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee

2014DodgeDurango

Vehicles Affected: About 6,120 model-year 2014 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs manufactured between Jan. 16 and April 8, 2014; Grand Cherokee SRT SUVs manufactured between Feb. 3 and April 8, 2014; and Cherokee crossovers manufactured between March 6 and April 17, 2014

The Problem: When the adaptive cruise control is engaged and the driver presses the accelerator pedal to increase the vehicle's speed more than the cruise control system would on its own, the vehicle may continue to accelerate briefly after the accelerator pedal is released, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Chrysler will begin notifying owners this month, and dealers will re-flash the Driver Assistance System Module for free.

What Owner Should Do: Owners can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or visit www.safercar.gov, for more info.

It's Happening: 2015 Dodge Challenger Gets Supercharged 600-hp V-8

DG015_146CL

The most powerful V-8 in Dodge's history is slapped between the fenders of the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, which uses a supercharger to force-feed air into a 6.2-liter V-8 for an estimated 600-plus horsepower. The stout V-8 is an optional engine on the redesigned 2015 Challenger SRT that, like other 2015 Challengers, shows off an all-new interior favoring an upscale, modern design over the previous year's retro look.

2015 Dodge Challenger: First Look

Base Challenger SRT buyers now have 485 hp, up from 470 hp, and a newly available eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the five-speed automatic. Back to the Hellcat — it's available with the eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual with nostalgic shifter-ball knob. Hellcat production is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2014.
