Expect Packed Performance with Dodge Challenger SRT
01 Jul 2014
Dodge’s all-new 2015 Challenger SRT is packed with performance, style, and a selection of outstanding features.
- Under the hood, the 2015 Challenger SRT will be available with a standard 392 HEMI V-8 that delivers 485 horsepower, or the all-new “Hellcat” HEMI V-8 with “600-plus” horsepower – this 6.2-liter, supercharged engine is the most powerful V-8 engine Chrysler Group has ever produced. Both engines will be available mated to either a six-speed manual transmission (with a retro ball shift knob) or Dodge’s new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, with optional paddle shifters. Other performance parts on the 2015 Challenger SRT include available 15.4-inch Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers, standard Pirelli P Zero Nero tires, and a dedicated cold-air intake.
- The new Challenger SRT’s exterior has been refined and wind-tunnel tested, to ensure it’s both functional and stylish. These changes provide “maximum aerodynamic performance” while also incorporating styling cues from the new SRT’s inspiration – the 1971 Dodge Challenger. The aggressive new front fascia provides the car with a sinister appearance, while redesigned sides and rear make the car sleeker and more “planted” on the ground.
- Dodge hasn’t skimped on the technological features of the 2015 Challenger SRT, either. The all-new Drive Modes feature allows the driver to tailor the car’s horsepower, shift speed, steering, traction, and suspension. There are three pre-configured Drive Modes available – Default, Sport, and Track – but a Custom setting is also available for drivers who want to personalize their vehicle’s performance. The new SRT also features a Valet Mode which significantly reduces performance and disables launch control, and the Hellcat engine comes with two key fobs – a red key for full performance, and a black key for reduced engine output.
