2015 Dodge Viper Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Dodge Viper Concept. 2015 Dodge Viper 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 Viper Release Date.
The Dodge Viper saga began in 1991, when Chrysler introduced the semi-supercar commonly known as the modern-day Cobra. The production model was based on a concept car showcased in 1989 and carried an 8.0-liter, V-10 engine under its long hood. Sold as a roadster at first, the Viper gained a coupe version in 1996, when the second-gen car was unveiled. Numerous upgrades were implemented until 2010, including a displacement increase to 8.3 liters and an output update to more than 500 horsepower, when the Viper was discontinued after four generations only to return as the SRT Viper in 2013. Heading into 2015, the SRT and Dodge brands have again become one, allowing the Dodge Viper SRT to return.
The Dodge Viper is back not just on the streets, but to the Dodge brand itself. Its brief stint as the SRT Viper is over, but the V-10 sports car’s unfiltered, raw driving experience remains unchanged. In the past it’s had a bad-boy reputation as less controllable than sports cars like the 911 and Corvette, but in its current form the Viper’s become almost genteel.
Updates for the 2015 model year include a 5-hp bump for the 8.4-liter V-10, a different sixth-gear ratio for upper trim levels, a new GT model to slot between base and GTS Vipers, a Viper TA 2.0 Special Edition model, and several new colors.

2015 Dodge Viper Interior
Now two decades removed from the original, the Viper still wears a pretty unmistakable shape. It was originally conceived as a modern interpretation of the Shelby Cobra, and many of those cues remain today.
All Vipers include Chrysler’s 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system, available in two flavors. The base Uconnect Media Center system includes Bluetooth phone and streaming audio; SiriusXM Radio; embedded cellular connection; and a rear backup camera display, as well as being navigation-ready. The premium version of the system adds navigation; traffic information, 3D maps, voice destination entry; HD radio; and more. A standard media hub gives all Vipers access to USB devices, SD cards, and an auxiliary input. The standard Harman/Kardon stereo has ten speakers and two subwoofers. A high-speed data connection allows for cloud-based voice recognition, web connectivity through Yelp and other apps, and stolen vehicle tracking services.
Differences between the Viper SRT and Viper GTS are primarily in equipment: the GTS gets a two-mode suspension system with Bilstein DampTronic Select dampers and the extra stability-control parameters. The Viper SRT is the more minimalist take on extreme performance, while the GTS offers an extra degree of luxury and refinement in the cabin as well as its upgraded suspension system and electronic controls. The GT model is new for 2015 and splits the difference, with a price to match, adding the GTS’s Bilstein setup, the five-mode stability system, and a unique leather-and-Alcantara interior on top of the base model’s equipment.
The interior remains unchanged on the base model, but the new GT trim is comes equipped with with standard Alcantara and Nappa leather seats finished in either black, Demonic Red or Sepia, with accent stitching. Unlike the GT, the TA 2.0 carries over with the same black interior with orange stitching on the racing seats, center stack, console, gear shifter, steering wheel and door panels.
Swollen fenders mark the boundaries of the swooping, curving, vented shape. A long, low hood and slightly bulbous canopy give the 2015 Viper classic proportions, but the details are all 21st-Century stuff, inspired by racing, and the nameplate’s own racing history.
2015 Dodge Viper Exterior
The Viper’s cabin is surprisingly roomy for such a low-slung, coupe. Dodge claims drivers up to 6’7″ should fit within its confines. There’s plenty of head and leg room for most drivers, and the seats are both comfortable and adjustable. The steering wheel and pedals also move to get the best possible fit. You’ll want as much physical comfort in the Viper as possible, as it’s a very noisy place to be, even cruising at low engine speeds on a smooth country road. The ride quality is fair in base models, a bit better with the adjustable dampers, but never really objectionable for a sports car. Cargo space is fair, at 14.65 cubic feet, but the odd shape under the rear hatch means soft-sided bags will be the best bet for longer trips.
Modifications are a bit more obvious on the Viper TA 2.0, basically an evolution of last year’s track-prepped, Time Attack model. The updated track-capable model comes with a new aerodynamic package, which includes new front dive planes, carbon-fiber front corner splitters, and a revised, larger rear wing. The latter brings significant improvements in terms of downforce, increasing the 2014 model’s 278 pounds at 150 mph to 400 pounds at the same speed. Also brand-new is the Yorange exterior finish described as “a vibrant mix of bright orange and yellow tones” which joins the familiar Competition Blue and Venom Black. Production will be limited to 32 examples of each of the three body colors.
Moving over to the GTS model, Dodge is now offering a Ceramic Blue Edition Package . The bundle adds an exclusive Ceramic Blue paint color with black stripes, and set of five-spoke Rattler wheels finished in Black Vapor Chrome. The package is rounded off by a GTS sill badge, a satin-black exhaust bezel, orange brake calipers, and carbon-fiber brake ducts and rear applique. Only 40 units of the GTS Ceramic Blue Edition Package will be built in 2015.
Differences between the Viper SRT and Viper GTS are primarily in equipment: the GTS gets a two-mode suspension system with Bilstein DampTronic Select dampers and the aforementioned extra stability-control parameters. The Viper SRT is the more minimalist take on extreme performance, while the GTS offers an extra degree of luxury and refinement in the cabin as well as its upgraded suspension system and electronic controls. The new-for-2015 GT model splits the difference, with a price to match, and adds the GTS’s Bilstein setup, the five-mode stability system, and a unique leather-and-Alcantara interior on top of the base model’s equipment.
2015 Dodge Viper Engine
The 2015 Viper continues with the same naturally aspirated, 8.4-liter V-10, but the engine now delivers an extra five horsepower for a new output of 645 ponies and 600 pound-feet of torque. The oomph travels to the rear wheels through the same Tremec TR6060, six-speed manual transmission.
Although the 0-to-60 mph sprint remains at around 3.3 seconds and top speed is achieved at the same 206-mph mark, the 2015 Viper does come with increased fuel economy due to engine calibration and transmission refinements. The sports car now returns 20 mpg on the highway, one mpg more when compared to last year’s model.
Under the hood of the Viper you’ll find just one engine, no matter the trim: an 8.4-liter V-10 that drives the rear wheels. It now makes 645 hp (up 5) and the same 600 pound-feet of torque. Chrysler says it delivers the most torque of any normally aspirated sports car engine in the world, and the performance reflects that: 0-60 mph runs come in the low-three-second range; quarter-miles fly by in the low 11s; 0-100-0 mph takes less than 12 seconds; top speed is 206 mph. You can have any transmission you want, as long as it’s the standard six-speed manual.
There are four packages, each with their own level of performance: the base Viper SRT, the Viper GT, the Viper GTS, and the Viper TA 2.0. The base model was our previous pick for hardcore track duty, as it eschews the extra luxuries of the GTS model, as well as the two-mode adjustable suspension. The standard setup is very fun to drive, less expensive, and just as quick on most tracks.
The Viper TA package, which returns for 2015 in version 2.0, may change that calculus, however, with a host of track-optimized features and equipment, including upgraded Brembo brakes to replace StopTech units on the standard car, an aerodynamic package that creates big downforce, retuned two-mode dampers, upgraded springs and anti-roll bars, and a carbon fiber X-brace in place of the standard aluminum unit.
