For those who don’t know what a Dodge Charger is or ever was, the surprise and delight they will feel with then get inside and feel the power and hear the roar will be a memory that will last a lifetime and just might allow them to develop the loyalty many feel when they meet their favorite muscle car for the first time.  For the rest of us who already know all there is to understand about the Charger, the offering of an amazing muscle car that is full of great power gives us a thought of nostalgia and the anticipation of driving the Hellcat which offers an unreal 707 horsepower.

Regardless of which model is chosen, any of the Chargers offer a better driving experience than the competition of the Chevrolet Impala or Buick LaCrosse.  One of the best features for this great muscle car is the ability for it to be a family sedan, allowing car people to not give up their car love for the typical family car while still being able to tote along all the members of the family to all enjoy the great power.  For 2015 the Charger has an all new interior, new sheet metal creases and one amazing new engine.

Driving the Charger offers a great feeling of control in a strong and substantial car.  This amazing car offers a highly active suspension that helps keep the car under control regardless of the conditions of the road or weather.  Offered in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the Charger benefits from the use of a steering system that is built to handle traffic on the road or traverse mountain passes and canyon runs making the drive a lot of fun for any owner.   The cabin is enjoyably quiet giving the ability to listen to some great music to anyone who has a Charger to drive.

With four engines to choose from, shoppers have a very nice choice in what powers their Charger.  All four engines are attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission that helps deliver smooth gear shifts and add fuel efficiency to the cars.  Starting at the base model, which is the only engine offered with all-wheel drive this engine comes in as a 3.6-liter V6 engine that shows up with 292 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque.  This powertrain offers a fuel efficiency of 19 city/31 hwy for the RWD versions and 18 city/27 hwy mpg for the AWD models.  This is the engine of choice for anyone using the Charger as a daily driver and has a long commute.

The second engine is a 5.7-liter V8 engine that shows up with 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque.  With these very respectable power numbers the fuel efficiency is still pretty good at 16 city/25 hwy mpg.  The third engine offered is a 6.4-liter V8 that has a maximum of 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque and gives owners fuel mileage of 15 city/25 hwy mpg.  With either of these two engines having a less than average drop in fuel mileage these could be the right engine for anyone with a shorter drive or to enjoy on the weekends.

At the top of the engine lineup is the all new engine offered in the Hellcat.  This engine is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that shows up with 707 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.  This mean beast of a power plant gives the lowest fuel mileage which comes in at 13 city/22 hwy mpg but shows so much power this engine can’t be ignored.

More comfortable inside than most sports or muscle cars the Charger offers a comfortable ride from any seat and a ton of great control features for the driver to give a great drive to their passengers.  With smooth and supple materials covering all surfaces the Charger is really a nice place to take a ride until the engine knocks you in your seat, then it’s an awesome place to enjoy a ride.  The outside of the Charger is more than simply recognizable; it’s a throwback to yesteryear that truly is a muscle car.  With a new grill and new set of headlights up front along with a smooth and long angle to the back with a low and aggressive profile the car is as much fun to look at as it is to drive on or off the track.

The Charger includes a nice list of standard features which offers LED daytime running lights, acoustic front glass and windshield, front and rear power windows and a configurable full color seven-inch driver information display.  More standard features are aboard, but these are the highlights which give any owner plenty of great equipment to fully enjoy and take advantage of while on the road.

The optional features for the Charger come in with a great list that includes a set of integrated dual black vapor chrome exhaust tips, a black grill with a performance mesh design, SRT Performance Pages in the UConnect, a 200-mph speedometer and much more all at equipped at the top of the line of the Charger models in the SRT Hellcat.  The other models offers some very inspiring and exciting features as well such as larger wheels on higher trims and a touch screen that can be improved from a seven-inch size to one that is a full 8.4-inches.

The 2015 Dodge Charger offers a great deal of excitement at any model and gives car enthusiasts who are starting a family the chance to continue to enjoy a great ride while carrying the family in a very nice car.  The base model Charger SE shows up with a starting price of $28,990 with the AWD model asking a bit more at $31,990.  The next level up is the SXT which starts out at $30,990 and the top of the line SRT Hellcat will fetch a price of $64,990.  With the Charger owners not only get great power, but anyone who knows what the Charger has been will enjoy the nostalgia of a throwback style muscle car that can really bring it.
