2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Dodge Challenger SXT Concept. 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT changes is one brand new car from Dodge that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Release Date.
Let’s get the obvious out of the way the 2015 Dodge Challenger is here and the model to covet is the SRT Hellcat, which churns out 707 hp from a supercharged V-8 and is priced right, with an MSRP of nearly $61,000 (including destination and gas-guzzler charges). Impressive indeed, but that much power for that much money is a bit much for most people. Thankfully, other powertrains do exist, including the carry-over 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8, though those engines can now be bolted to a new eight-speed automatic. But the big news is that Dodge is now offering its big and burly 6.4-liter V-8 previously offered in only the Challenger SRT in a non-SRT Challenger, allowing you to upgrade to more power while saving some coin in the process.
As a member of the modern-day muscle-car club, the retro-styled, 2-door, 5-passenger 2015 Dodge Challenger coupe rides on a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) chassis and draws power from a V-6 or one of two high-performance V-8 engines. Primary competitors include the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang, though the Challenger may also be cross-shopped with the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and the Infiniti Q60, among others.

2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Interior
Dodge offers the 2015 Challenger in three primary trim levels SXT, R/T, and SRT with sub-trims of each. The base SXT is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, push-button start, 6-speaker infotainment system, and a power driver’s seat with 6-way adjustment. To this, the SXT Plus adds satellite radio service, fog lights and automatic headlights, 276-watt sound system, Bluetooth connectivity, voice control of the infotainment system, leather upholstery, and heated front seats. Rounding out the SXT lineup is the SXT Rallye Redline, featuring a rear spoiler, 20-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters and a sport mode, and upgrades to the brakes and rear axle.
In addition to the new gearbox, the Challenger’s electronic architecture has been upgraded, which means the two-door can now be had with advanced tech such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision assist, and blind-spot monitoring. But Dodge didn’t stop there. The automaker also put a lot of effort into making the cabin a better place to be, with updated soft-touch surfaces, revised switchgear, and an eye-catching instrument panel. The large, 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment touchscreen, which has impressed us in other Chrysler products, is finally available for the Challenger. Exterior tweaks are a bit more subtle, but include a revised front fascia with headlamps bordered by halo-style LED accents. Out back, the 2015 Challenger gets LED taillamps.
2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Exterior
The revised exterior styling adopts cues from the classic 1971 Challenger, including a new split grille in a slimmer front opening with projector headlamps surrounded by LED halos, a pronounced and fully functional “power bulge” hood, and LED tail lamps in a glossy piano black surround. Inside, the 2015 Challenger’s interior has been completely revamped. The sweeping surfaces of hard black plastic are gone, replaced by a modern dash with soft-touch surfaces and a fully modern instrument cluster with a fully customizable 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) center display screen and available 8.4-inch touch-screen system.
The revised exterior styling adopts cues from the classic 1971 Challenger, including a new split grille in a slimmer front opening with projector headlamps surrounded by LED halos, a pronounced and fully functional “power bulge” hood, and LED tail lamps in a glossy piano black surround. The basic shape remains unchanged, with a long nose, flat hood and deck lid, thick Seventies-inspired roof pillars and a pronounced kickup in the waistline. It keeps the Challenger more faithful to its decades-old ancestors than either the Camaro or Mustang, which have evolved with the ages.
Four-piston Brembos, by the way, were used on the 2014 Challenger SRT. The 2015 Challenger SRT 392 and Hellcat now get a more substantial Brembo brake setup that includes six-piston clampers up front. Other SRT-exclusive features include an adaptive suspension system and SRT’s selectable drive modes. In all, the R/T Scat Pack finally brings the Challenger to the same playing field as the Camaro SS and Mustang GT. Meanwhile, the Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker adds a shaker hood with functional cold-air intake, Nappa leather, and other visual treatments.
For buyers of the Challenger SRT, Dodge offers buyers a Core variant equipped with the push-button start system, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power driver’s seat, and high-performance Brembo brakes. That version is upstaged by the SRT Premium, host to automatic HID headlights, body stripes, leather upholstery, 6.4-inch touch-screen infotainment system with a 30 GB hard drive, heated steering wheel, upgraded heated front bucket seats with leather upholstery and red accents, and a driver-selectable multi-mode suspension setup. All SRTs are sold with enrollment in a one-day driving school designed to help new owners safely explore and enjoy the capabilities of their new car.
2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Engine
The standard powertrain on the 2015 Challenger is a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V-6. Then there’s the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, which will be rated at up to 375 hp and 410 lb-ft or torque. Finally, there’s a new 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that Dodge estimates at 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. All three engines can be mated to a new eight-speed automatic transmission, the only one offered on any of the three U.S. muscle cars, with a Sport Mode and paddle shifters as well as visual and tactile feedback on the electronically-actuated shift lever. A six-speed manual gearbox remains available as well. Like all three of its competitors this year, the Challenger remains a rear-wheel-drive vehicle with independent rear suspensions.
Slotting below this 2015 Challenger R/T Scat Pack is the Challenger R/T, which is still powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 making 375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. We sampled an R/T with the new eight-speed auto (the six-speed is still available) at the Portland International Raceway and the powertrain never seemed out of breath, even on the long straights. The R/T’s engine and exhaust note are a bit more docile than the 6.4’s, and it’s whisper quiet at cruising speeds. The R/T’s suspension is a bit softer, too, but it’s relatively stable through corners as long as you scrub off a lot of speed beforehand. That said, the Challenger excels on the open highway as a grand tourer, soaking up bumps with ease.
The six-cylinder Challenger has come a long way since it arrived in ’09 powered by a wheezy, 250-hp 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a slushy five-speed automatic. Our testing showed it capable of an only so-so 7.5-second 0-to-60-mph time and a sad 0.78 g on the skidpad, with the handling punctuated by tire-squealing understeer that bordered on the extreme. In 2011, Chrysler’s Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 producing 305 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque took over, albeit with the same antiquated transmission. Thus equipped, the six-hole Challenger chopped more than a second off its 0–60 time. Meanwhile, an optional Super Sport Group with revised brakes, stiffened suspension bits, and 20-inch wheels did yeoman’s work in cleaning up the handling and dramatically shortening braking performance. In other words, there was hope.
Next up is the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T’s 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. When paired with the automatic transmission, this engine generates 372 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. However, unlike the V-6, this Hemi can instead be mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox, a combination that nets 375 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque.
Those are some impressive specs, but they don’t match the output of the Challenger SRT’s 6.4-liter V-8, dubbed the 392 Hemi. Thanks to the extra displacement, the SRT’s engine delivers 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Again, buyers have the choice of the 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker are the two non-SRT models getting the 6.4-liter V-8, which now makes 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque (the 2015 Challenger SRT 392 also makes the same power), an increase of 15 horses and 5 lb-ft compared to the 2014 Challenger SRT’s engine. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a carry-over six-speed manual or an all-new eight-speed automatic that finally puts the archaic five-speed auto to rest. The benefits of the power bump and new automatic gearbox are noticeable. For starters, the Challenger feels much stronger off the line and the eight-speed shifts smoothly, regardless if you’re driving hard on the track or going for an easy cruise on the street. Better yet, Dodge says the automatic improves fuel economy by about 8 percent, achieving an estimated 25 mpg on the highway compared to 23 mpg for the 2014 Challenger SRT paired with the five-speed.
+. EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2014 Dodge Challenger are:
