The modern iteration of the original 1971 Challenger is a tribute to the era when power and quarter mile runs were the keys to success for performance cars.
The new, facelifted, 2015 Dodge Challenger comes with a big, important improvement on the transmission sector where the older, 5-speed automatic transmission was replaced with a new, 8-speed ZF gearbox. In the engine compartment, there is a V6 and few V8 gasoline engines, with or without a supercharger.
The reintroduction of the Scat Pack with a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V8 engine offers 485 hp and 644 Nm (475 lb.-ft) of torque. Dodge fans who are looking for the 5.7-liter Hemi engine, that one is offered on the R/T lineup with 375 hp and 556 Nm (410 lb.-ft) of torque. This version can be mated with a choice of two manual 6-speed transmissions or with an 8-speed automatic. If the optional Tremec 6-speed manual is chosen, then you can expect the acceleration from 0 to 60 mph (96 kph) to take less than 5 seconds.
The base engine was the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine, which offered 305 hp. The interior was heavily reworked and more technology was added, with the Uconnect Acces interface.
