2015 Dodge Charger Starts At $28,990

2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack
Let's run through the 2015 Dodge Charger line-up pricing with four engine choices and newly introduced all-wheel drive models starting with the new 2015 Charger SE model powered by a 292 horsepower Pentastar V-6 engine now mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission for an EPA estimated 31 mpg on the highway. Features include a larger 5.0-inch Uconnect touchscreen and new 7-inch full-color driver information display, and a starting U.S. MSRP of $28,990 (including $995 destination). The 2015 Dodge Charger SE AWD starts at $31,990 and includes a fuel-saving active transfer case with front axle disconnect, P235/55R19 all-season performance tires on 19-inch dual five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels with a polished face and graphite pockets.

Charger SXT models for 2015 now include Uconnect Access, 18-inch aluminum wheels, LED fog lamps and starts at $30,990. Charger SXT AWD models have a starting U.S. MSRP of $33,990 with the same attributes as the SE AWD.

All 370-horsepower Dodge Charger R/T models now come standard with the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, paddle shifters, rear spoiler and large 20-inch wheels for 2015 and start at $33,990.

All-new 2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack model with a 485 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, punching out 475 lb.-ft. of torque, has red four-piston Brembo brakes and 20-by-9-inch aluminum wheels starts at $40,990 and no gas guzzler tax. More than enough power with a broad torque range that provided immediate acceleration at all speeds with minimal pedal pressure. My first impression was that I had a lot more horsepower than advertised. The Charger is the amazing muscle car that it's touted to be and I proved it at high speeds on the Willow Springs Race Track (pictured above).

2015 Dodge Charger SRT
All-new Charger SRT Hellcat has a 707 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 Hellcat engine, producing 650 lb.-ft. of torque and recently achieved an NHRA-certified 11.0-second quarter-mile time, starts at $64,990, including $1,700 gas guzzler tax.

New for 2015, the Plus Group provides more than $3,700 of comfort and convenience features with an MSRP of only $2,000 on Charger SXT and R/T models and includes ventilated Nappa leather sport seats, heated steering wheel and second-row seats, high-intensity discharge headlamps, polished cast-aluminum wheels with Graphite pockets, ParkSense rear park assist system, ParkView rear backup camera and more.
