2015 Dodge Charger Overview
In this model year, the Dodge Charger has maintained as a sleek profile with some minor tweaks to the body and the cabin. The Dodge Charger is a full-size, four-door sedan that has well-rounded appeal that has many engine options to reach performance benchmarks unseen in the previous generation. With this build, the car creates a thrilling driver experience.
Features & Specs
The 2015 Dodge Charger base model comes with feature packages that include air conditioning, a sound system with CD player and an aux jack. The Dodge Charger SE receives aluminum wheels and an upgraded interior with LED lights for cup holders. The SXT has the same feature package with the optional LED illuminated door map pockets, which are standard on the R/T. Other available features include heated seats, power sunroof and Sirius Backseat TV system to entertain passengers with live satellite television.
Design & Performance
The 2015 Dodge Charger is tall, wide and heavy, yet still brings above average performance to the table. The 2015 Charger drives smoothly though, and drives especially steady at higher speeds. Fuel efficiency, however, is a bit lacking for the vehicle. With this generation, the Charger has returned to driving in rear-wheel drive with a 5-speed automatic transmission standard with an 8-speed automatic as an available option. For the 2015 model year, there are four engines available across each trim level to enable potential car buyers seeking improved performance. All-wheel drive is optional to boost fuel efficiency at higher trim levels.
Powertrain & Engine
Offered with a wide range of engines and trim levels, the 2015 Dodge Charger can be customized to appeal to many audiences and preferences. The base engine in the four-door sedan is a 2.7L V6. The SE trim level offers a 3.5L V6 engine available as an option, and the same 3.5L V6 engine comes standard on the SXT. For anyone seeking higher performance, the Dodge Charger R/T comes with a 5.8L V8 engine. The Dodge Charger's highest trim level, the Dodge Charger SRT8, delivers a 6.1L V8 engine with supercharged acceleration. Each trim level operates well as a daily-use vehicle, though drivers who value performance over fuel economy should seek out the higher trim levels.
Body Style & Interior Comfort
The 2015 model received a facelift, with noticeable changes coming to the shape of the frame with a rounded grille. The 2015 Charger is still reminiscent of muscle cars from the past, but takes additional style cues with a completely new body. The Charger is heftier than the average midsize four-door sedan. Across all trim levels, the exterior is largely the same. On the inside, the Dodge Charger has a well-planned cabin updated in 2014 with new materials for the door, console and dash panels. Across the board, the design and control layout is straightforward and functional.
Since their inception, muscle cars have transformed ordinary drives into adventures. Their beefy V8 engines, impressive performance characteristics, and aggressive stances make enthusiastic owners think up new reasons to grab their keys and take their next drive. If you want to reignite your passion for driving and experience the best muscle car the world currently has to offer, you’ll need to wade through the abundant options. Of all your four-wheeled options, the Pontiac G8 and Dodge Charger are worth a place at the top of your search list.
Two sedans, both from Dodge, have the potential to take the streets by storm as sharp-looking, high performing, four-door sedans. Although the swaggering Dodge Charger is an obvious choice for the performance-minded driver, the Dodge Avenger also has the potential to be a solid contender. Even though Dodge originally never intended for these sedans to compete, advancements in vehicle design have placed the Charger and Avenger on the same field of play. And they certainly can play.
