The 2015 Charger is a mix between a “refresh” and a “redesign”. Underneath the body, it’s still the loony muscle car that we all know and love, but outside it has evolved and grown-up. Dodge lifted some of the styling cues from its entry-level Dart sedan to heavily revise the front and rear fascia. It seems to be just the right touch.
Between the fit of new 20-inch alloy footwear and the exotic C-shaped LED running lights, it’s a car we’re itching to get in and drive. The interior has been overhauled as well, including the addition of a 7-inch thin LCD screen in the gauge cluster and access to Chrysler’s revised Uconnect services.
Thankfully the 5.7L V8 is still on the table for the foreseeable future. Dodge’s HEMI mill generates 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque, but now comes with cylinder deactivation to increase fuel efficiency. Those with a tighter pocketbook can opt for the new 3.6L Pentastar V6, which cranks out 292-horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.
