2015 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
This car will move. People tend to give the challenger a bad rap solely based on its weight. Name me a car besides the challenger that can do a 0-60 in under 6 seconds while weighing over 2 tons being powered by a V6? None that i can think of. This car isnt a sports car, its a muscle car. Simply put this is the GT car in the pony car segment. Sure the Camaro and Mustang are quicker, but neither of them give the comfort that this car does. If your short, sure the others are better in your eyes, but if your an avg american you will love this car. Real people are over 6ft and need comfort. This car brings you this plus more. The V6 is a great engine, combine that with an AFE CAI and you get 320hp. Road trips are a dream. Some say that the MPG drops off over a period of time but i disagree. Ive had this car for 1.5 years and drove to Vegas last weekend from south orange county. Had a AVG of 31 while doing 80 there and back. Name me a sports car or Muscle car that can make it 550+ miles on a single tank when your not doing 55mph. Take this car around during the week, feel happy knowing that you can fit real adults in the back seat who are'nt 5ft and can still hold all the luggage. This car is the best all in one package.
This is by far the best design of all of the retro design cars. It offers comfort, the ability to achieve the 25 mpg rating (when you're not playing with the gas pedal!), up to date technology, great performance and it gathers a crowd! This has been on my bucket list for a long time. Style, Fun, Technology, Efficiency (for a muscle car) and a whole lot for the money.
Respect the power. 29 mpg when driving from Virginia to PA when I was bringing it home from the dealership.I couldn't believe it.This car will always put a smile on any drivers face, ask anyone who owns one.Very comfortable ,plenty of room front and rear of the interior and lots of room in the trunk. This car is very quick,and powerful. A person who never had experience driving muscle cars could very easily let this get away from them. Again you must respect the power! Great, fun car to drive.My HELLCAT is the 8 speed auto, which shifts fantastic. Any person who is thinking of buying one don't think any longer. Go get one. You won,t regret it. You only live once!!! ---------My new review after owning this vehicle for 1 year is still a great review. This vehicle is awesome. It's unbelievable the performance of a car this large and comfortable, even on long trips with plenty of trunk space. I've gotten up to 30 mpg in eco mode going from Sunbury PA to Lancaster PA.This vehicle still puts a smile on my face overtime I drive it!
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)
This car is extremely dangerous. We purchased ours brand new from the dealership in Brandon, Florida. Less than 1 month later had our first close call with an accident when the vehicle without warning looses all acceleration as we are pulling into oncoming traffic from a stop sign. The gear shift "D" flashes red and the digital readout on the dashboard instructs you to "Place vehicle in Park and shift to desired gear". This means that no matter where you are whether in the middle of an intersection or while merging into oncoming traffic, you must come to a complete stop and put the vehicle in "Park" and then shift back into "Drive". This has happened a total of 5 times with two of those being captured on video by my son who was driving the car. Dodge still has no idea what is causing the problem nor do they have any clue how to fix it. Filed a Lemon Law suit notified the NTSB as well as the Federal Trade Commission. Don't put yourself, family members or the innocent other driver at risk. This car needs to be considered for a Class Action Lawsuit against Dodge.
