Full Challenger, Hellcat pricing info

by David Zatz on

Following leaks of Hellcat pricing, Dodge has released prices for its full 2015 Dodge Challenger lineup. Now using eight-speed automatics (or six-speed manuals on V8s) across the board, the Challenger remains within the mainstream of American cars with a base price of $26,995 for the V6 model.

The previous-generation Challenger scored five solid years of continuous growth, with sales doubling between 2009 and 2013 in a segment that saw just a 10% increase in the same period.  In its fifth year in the market, when most cars are on their natural decline curve, the Dodge Challenger set an all-time sales record. The segment as a whole is projected to grow by 42% over the next five years.

The powerful and efficient 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 in the SXT and SXT Plus generates 305 horsepower and yields up to 30 mpg (EPA estimate) on the highway, an 11% improvement that came with a substantial acceleration boost.  The 5.7 Hemi will yield 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, while a power-boosted 6.4 liter Hemi Scat Pack combines 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque with 25 mpg (EPA highway).

Across the board, a seven inch “multi-view cluster” screen with “tic-toc-tach” gauges is standard, and a 8.4 inch touch-screen stereo is optional.

Dodge confirmed the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat (that’s the official name) as starting at $59,995, with 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, with the first application of the “TorqueFlite 8HP90” high-performance eight-speed automatic.

The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack and 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shakers start at $38,495. They too have the eight-speed, increasing fuel economy by 8% and avoiding the gas guzzler tax.

Dodge Challenger R/T starts at $31,495; Dodge calls it America’s most affordable V-8 muscle car. The “shaker” hood is late-availability.

New technology (optional) includes upgraded Uconnect, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, automatic high-beam headlamps, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross path detection.
