Four engines, four doors, eight-speeds — Dodge introduces 2015 Charger

(October 20, 2014) AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Once again the Dodge brand is breaking the rules. With power, precision and performance once reserved for premium brands and exotic supercars, the 2015 Dodge Charger lineup is single handedly shifting the paradigm of what a full-size sedan can be.

From the segment’s first TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission now standard on every Charger model for best-in-class V-6 fuel economy; to the new Charger SRT Hellcat, the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful rear-wheel-drive sedan — America’s only four-door muscle car stands in a class by itself, now with a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $27,995 (all prices exclude $995 destination).
"The Dodge Charger is a performance car that carves its own niche and cuts straight through the segments and perceptions of what a full-size sedan can or should be," said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO – Dodge and SRT.

"With the new 2015 Charger, we're pushing the boundaries of what a full-size sedan can or should be even further. We've seriously modernized the look and feel and added a standard eight-speed transmission across the lineup. The Charger is now tighter, leaner and more athletic, without sacrificing the proportions, performance, driving dynamics, attitude and price that attracted customers in the first place." 
From stomping out National Hot Rod Association (NHRA)-certified quarter-mile times of 11.0 seconds on street tires, delivering a best-in-class 31 mpg on the highway, or blasting through snow drifts with the segment’s most technologically advanced AWD system the new 2015 Dodge Charger lineup is ready to take America’s roadways by storm.
