The Dodge Charger is one of the most iconic model or rather muscle car ever made in the history of automobiles, no doubts about it. Throughout the history of the muscle cars, there has been a tussle between the Charger and other legends like the Ford Mustangs and the Chevrolet Camaros on the equal levels, fist to fist, punch to punch. But, Dodge Charger never failed to seize the opportunity in creating interest among afioconados.
For the model year 2015, Dodge has released the prices for its Charger sedan and the Hellcat. Priced at $27,995, the Charger will get a 292-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Moving up one step of the ladder gets the buyer an SXT model with the same engine, but a nicer chunk of technology and optional equipment at a $2,000 premium. All-wheel drive adds another $3,000. Hemi V8-powered R/T models now boast an eight-speed transmission bolted to the same well-loved 370-horsepower engine as before, for a base price of $32,995.
The SRT 392 model that had hitherto been the top-performing Charger, bringing with it an asking price of $47,385, while the bargain hunters can equip a Charger R/T Scat Pack machine with that same 485-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi, albeit with somewhat less posh interior bits and pieces, the removal of the 392's adjustable suspension and hi-po wheel and tire package for $39,995.
At $63,995, for the Hellcat and let us tell you, that this is a rather reasonable sum to bring home its buyer a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 engine boasting a supercharger to post such gaudy figures as 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, leading to a top speed of 204 miles per hour to go along with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.0 seconds.
The Indian Enthusiasts are still to get hold on any muscle car let alone the Charger. We hope that India gets some of the mean looking machines soon.
