NHTSA: Challenger gets 5 stars

by David Zatz on

The 2015 Dodge Challenger has earned a five-star overall safety rating from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the agency’s highest possible safety rating.

The Challenger is the only car in its segment with Forward Collision Warning (optional). It also has blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection, which was pioneered by Chrysler Group.

Challenger scored five stars in front and side impacts, four stars in other tests. The car starts at $27,990, including destination charge. The 2014, without any eight-speed automatics, still had’s Best Retained Value Award and three years of winning J.D. Power’s APEAL Award for overall ownership enjoyment.

The 2015 added a segment-first eight-speed automatic transmission, Uconnect Access system, standard 7-inch gauge cluster display, and touch entry with push-button start.

Last month, the Challenger recorded its best-ever U.S. November sales total with 4,157 deliveries, 52% over November 2013.
