May 20, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The newly consolidated Dodge and SRT brands are launching out of the gate at full throttle – introducing the new 600-plus horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine and its stablemate – the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT just one month after taking the wraps off the new Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI® Scat Pack Shaker at the New York Auto Show.

Driven by the five SRT performance hallmarks, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT and Challenger SRT wîth the Hellcat engine are re-designed and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupes on the market wîth performance-enhancing technologies inside and out. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will feature the most powerful V-8 engine ever produced by Chrysler Group – the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8.

'The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is the ultimate performance muscle car,' said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO – Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. 'Dodge is the Mainstream Performance brand, and now combined wîth SRT, we are able to unleash a true GT car wîth an all-new driver-focused interior and the TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission combined wîth the most powerful V-8 Chrysler has ever produced. The Challenger Hellcat has been released!'

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT coupes will be built at the Brampton (Ont.) Assembly plant. Production is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2014.

Awe-inspiring powertrains

For 2015, the Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine is propelled by the new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8. Its 600-plus horsepower rating will be the highest of any V-8 engine in Chrysler Group's celebrated history. The all-new V-8 engine can be mated wîth an upgraded six-speed manual transmission or a beefy, new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic – the first such gearbox ever offered in the Dodge Challenger SRT's time-honored §egmènt.

This new HEMI® Hellcat engine is Dodge and SRT's first application of V-8 supercharger technology, delivering the full brand experience wîth fresh potency.

The breakthrough supercharged engine features a forged-steel crankshaft wîth induction-hardened bearing surfaces. The result is a crank so well-engineered it can withstand firing pressures of 110 bar (1,595 psi) – the equivalent of five family sedans standing on each piston, every two revolutions. And its unique, specially tuned crank damper has been tested to 13,000 rpm.

High-strength, forged-alloy pistons – developed using advanced telemetry measurement – are coupled to powder-forged connecting rods wîth high-load-capacity bushings and diamond-like-carbon-coated piston pins.

The new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 has premium-grade, heat-treated aluminum-alloy cylinder heads that are optimized for superior thermal conductivity. And its die-cast aluminum rocker covers are HEMI Orange.

In addition to the supercharged HEMI V-8 in the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT model also gets a power boost wîth upgrades to the 392 HEMI V-8. Horsepower climbs to 485 from 470, while peak torque jumps to 475 lb.-ft. from 470 lb.-ft.

The 392 also can be mated wîth a new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic or the proven six-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

All-new Drive Modes tailor the driving experience to each individual driver

Whether its on-road or on-track, Challenger SRT owners can personalize their drive experience via the all-new Drive Modes feature. Drive Modes tailor the driving experience by controlling horsepower, transmission shift speeds, §teering (Challenger SRT only), paddle shifters (automatic transmission only), traction and suspension. Drive Modes are pre-configured for Sport, Track and Default settings, while the Custom setting lets the driver customize the drive experience to their favorite settings.
◾Custom - Allows the driver to personalize the vehicle's performance
◾Sport - Delivers increased vehicle performance capability over the Default Mode
◾Track - Delivers maximum vehicle performance capability on smooth, dry surfaces
◾Default - Activates automatically when starting the vehicle

The Drive Mode feature is controlled through the Úconnect system and may be accessed by performing any of the following:
◾Pushing the SRT button on the instrument panel switch bank
◾Selecting 'Drive Modes' from the 'SRT & Apps' menu
◾Selecting 'Drive Modes' from within the Performance Pages menu

Únlocking the power

For the first time in Chrysler Group history, the all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine comes standard wîth two key fobs – red and black. The red key fob is the only key that can unlock the full horsepower and torque potential of the Challenger SRT Hellcat engine; while the black key fob limits the driver to a reduced engine output.

Valet Mode is offered on both Challenger SRT and Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine. When Valet Mode is activated, the following vehicle configurations are enabled:
◾Engine is remapped to significantly reduce horsepower and torque; limited to 4,000 rpm
◾Transmission locks out access to first gear and upshifts earlier than normal
◾Transmission will treat the manual shifter position the same as the drive position
◾Traction, §teering and suspension are set to their 'Street' settings
◾Steering-wheel paddle shifters are disabled
◾Drive Mode functions are disabled
◾Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is enabled to Full-on
◾Launch Control is disabled

The driver can activate and deactivate Valet Mode wîth a four-digit PIN code they create.

Outstanding ride and handling

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT rides on new, SRT-exclusive '77' eight-spoke 20 x 9-inch forged-aluminum 'Hyper Black' wheels. Standard 245/45ZR20 (front and rear) Goodyear RSA2 All-Season or available Goodyear F1 Supercar Three-Season tires deliver serious grip and handling.

Standard wheels on the Challenger SRT wîth the Hellcat engine are new SRT-exclusive 'Slingshot' split-seven spoke 20 x 9.5-inch, lightweight forged-aluminum wheels wîth a matte black finish; available on the SRT 392 as part of the SRT Track Pack. New P275/40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero Nero tires (front and rear) provide all-season traction while the newest tire technology from Pirelli includes the class exclusive four-season tire that is Y-Plus rated to handle the extreme speeds. Pirelli P Zero tires are available for three-season performance driving.

Available on the Challenger SRT Hellcat are 20 x 9.5-inch, lightweight forged-aluminum wheels wîth a Brass Monkey/dark bronze finish.

Benchmark braking

Standard on the 2015 Challenger SRT wîth the Hellcat engine is the largest front-brake package ever offered in an SRT vehicle, featuring all-new 390-mm (15.4-inch) Brembo two-piece rotors wîth six-piston calipers for outstanding heat management/thermal capacity and longevity. This upgraded high-performance brake package is available on the 392 HEMI® SRT model as part of the SRT Track Pack.

New anti-lock braking system (ABS), ESC and traction control systems are uniquely tuned and configurable for specific tire and powertrain configurations.

Aggressive and functional exteriors


Dodge and SRT designers and engineers spent 35 percent more time in the Chrysler Group's full-scale wind tunnel in Auburn Hills, Michigan, (compared wîth the previous-generation Dodge Challenger SRT) developing and further refining the aggressive and functional exteriors on the Challenger SRT and Challenger SRT Hellcat. The result is a re-engineered Challenger capable of maximum aerodynamic performance for spirited driving on the road or the race track.

At the front, new fascia designs and all-new vertical-split grille provide a menacing update of its 1971 inspiration. A larger, power-bulge aluminum hood features a dedicated 'cold-air' intake – a visual styling cue from the first Viper coupe built in 1996.

The hood on the new Dodge Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine also includes dual air extractors to ensure effective removal of heat and reduced air turbulence in the engine compartment. The hood is standard in body color and is available in a Satin Black finish. Both models of the Challenger SRT feature all-aluminum hoods designed to reduce weight.

Another key design element on the Challenger SRT Hellcat is the exclusive Air Catcher inlet port, which feeds ram-air directly into the engine air box through the driver-side parking lamp.

All-new quad projector headlamps give a more detailed appearance, while a more aggressive brow 'chops' the upper portion of the lamp design for an even more sinister attitude.

Integrated projector fog lamps on the Challenger 392 SRT are pushed to the lower corners to help accentuate the car's width while illuminating the road. A new duck-bill fascia splitter helps improve the vehicle's aerodynamics.

The Dodge Challenger SRT wîth a Hellcat engine features a larger front splitter designed for optimal downforce to minimize lift.

From the side, the signature muscular proportions and large thruster rear-quarter panels stand out from the crowd, while fender and belt lines tie together at the front and rear of the car to create a sleeker appearance. Differentiating the Challenger SRT Hellcat from the rest of the Challenger lineup are its 'SÚPERCHARGED' fender badges. Black sills accentuate the proportions of the muscle coupe and have been tuned in the wind tunnel to improve aerodynamics.

Out back, the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT recalls the historic 1971 model's styling wîth a new split tail-lamp design and rear fascia. The tail lamps feature the new signature LED graphic wîth its smooth glow of light that can be seen from blocks away. A redesigned rear valance helps the 2015 Challenger SRT models look more planted on the ground. A unique, taller rear spoiler on the SRT Hellcat features a raised SRT logo.

Race-inspired, high-performance interiors

Inside the 2015 Dodge Challenger is an all-new enthusiast-centric cockpit wîth world-class materials, execution and technology. Key elements are inspired by the interior of the 1971 Challenger.

The performance cockpit of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT carries an essence of the 1971 Challenger, in an artistic and more organically styled way.


The all-new cleanly executed instrument panel features a stamped aluminum bezel, which sets the tone for the driver's display. For a high-tech look, an innovative 7-inch driver-selectable driver information display (DID) screen is centered in the gauge cluster and provides an almost infinitely customizable display. The all-new DID screen is flanked by new analog speedometer and tachometer gauges, which provide a heritage-inspired look wîth concave shapes and a hub-covered needle design, reminiscent of the 'tic-toc-tach' gauges from the 1971 Challenger. For the Challenger SRT wîth the Hellcat engine, the fixed gauges and digital graphics are finished in a Dark Radar Red tone to make it even more unique.

Additionally, the dashboard's center stack neatly houses the new standard 8.4-inch Úconnect touchscreen. New for 2015 drivers can select one of the many offered backgrounds to connect the digital look and feel wîth their chosen interior package.

A new, trapezoidal shaped stamped aluminum center console provides Challenger SRT's interior wîth a fresh look. The aluminum trim gets one of two finishes, 'Hectic Mesh' for the Challenger 392 SRT and 'Dark Engine Turn' for the Challenger SRT Hellcat. The console also exudes craftsmanship and style wîth leather-wrapped surfaces and French-seamed accent stitching running from the back to the front. Employing a unique, elevated design, the all-new center console houses ergonomically located redundant button and knob controls for audio and climate functions. An all-new media hub wîth an SD card slot, ÚSB outlet and audio jack is neatly housed inside the center console's flocked armrest.

For those who opt for the §egmènt-first TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, an all-new and class-exclusive electronic shifter wîth an all-new driver-oriented T-handle provides the driver wîth intuitive gear selection and offers an Auto Stick selector gate for added control. For those who prefer having a third pedal, the precise and track-proven Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission is fitted wîth a throwback ball shifter.

A redesigned SRT-branded heated §teering wheel features a flat bottom for the high-performance driver. Available paddle shifters (with automatic transmission) are located on the back of the upper spokes. The buttons to control the driver-configurable full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) display are large and illuminated. Buttons for Úconnect and phone access now reside along the bottom edge of the horizontal spokes. Optional adaptive cruise control is configured by buttons that are symmetrically opposite on the right hand side of the wheel. As before, the highly praised audio controls are still found on the back of the upper spokes. This new tilt-telescoping §teering wheel also has a 360-degree heat element.

To make cruises more pleasurable, the new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT features redesigned seats wîth improved cushioning and more comfortable contours. For improved comfort and convenience, new for 2015 are standard heated and ventilated front seats. The passenger seat also has an easy exit/entry function to provide access to the rear seat – this is controlled by a release handle on the top shoulder of the seat.

Challenger SRT offers performance seats wîth large side bolsters for maximum lateral support in hard cornering. The seats can be covered in Nappa leather/Alcantara material wîth embroidered SRT logos. Laguna premium leather, colored either sepia or black wîth embossed SRT logos, is available as part of an equipment package.

High-impact exterior colors

Many of the most memorable paint colors in automotive history have been found on the Challenger. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 and SRT wîth the HEMI Hellcat will be available in 11 exterior colors: B5 Blue Pearl Coat, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Bright White Clear Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Pearl Coat, Ivory White Tri-Coat Pearl, Jazz Blue Pearl Coat, Phantom Black Tri-Coat Pearl, Pitch Black Clear Coat, Redline Tri-Coat Pearl, Sublime Metallic Pearl Coat and TorRed Clear Coat.

Twin, full-body stripes are available in Black Satin Gloss and Silver High Gloss on the SRT 392.
