2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Review, Styling, Features

Saturday, January 10th 2015. | Dodge

Here is a review for those craving for the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT. The car is to be reckoned with in the company’s muscle car lineup. There are many things we can see out of the new car. Though it may not have the nimblest performance, it is still a reliable car. It feels very comfortable to ride. You can consider it as your long-distance cruiser. Here are some upgrades to be seen on the new series. First off, the car has some subtle tweaks on the exterior. If you expect some significant upgrades, you may have to wait until the next model.

The car has more than usual tech features on the dashboard. They will definitely spoil you if you plan on having one. The successor is powered by a new 6.2-liter v8 engine. It is enough to make the car run fast with 707 horsepower. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The car is kind of too big for its only two doors. We think it has got to do with the LX rear-wheel-drive platform. Well, as expected, having an oversized body has a direct impact on its weight. The car is becoming porky, kind of overweight if you ask.

On the bright side, a larger construction means there is much more space inside for the passengers. That was very great. The seats feel much comfier. At a glance, the outer frame is very well-executed. You can see that from the muscular styling it has. The head-turning retro sheet metal sums up the gorgeousness of the car. Of course, it is still reminiscent of the siblings because this is a successor, after all. The headlights, rectangular tail lamps, coke-bottle hips, there are many parts on the outside that we can praise.

The interior is sweet, but the bunch of features is the one that will keep you excited. Aside from the 8.4-inch touch screen, there is a heap of features for your entertainment, such as the challenger’s audio, navigation, Uconnect access, climate control functions, and much more. There are some many controls spreading all over that got us thinking they’re a bit redundant. Well, the opinions will definitely split. You may be one of those who adore the excessive buttons and knobs. A 6.4-liter hemi v8 lies under the bonnet. This part is vigorous enough to put out 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque.

The acceleration is affected in a good way. It makes sense that with that amount of power, the car can run fast to its 60 mph in only 5 seconds or even less. There are some different trim levels offered. For better performance, you can go for its 6.2-liter v8-engine model. The power is not the only part that sparks your interest. The interior has much to see, like illuminated cup holders, body-colored mirrors, an 8.4-inch color touch screen, to name a few. We can not mention too many of them. Instead, we will only inform some of the highlights. They are full leather upholstery, red seat belts, rain-sensing wipers, automatic high beams, summer tires, a power sunroof, etc.
