Review Summary:

The has been around 1966, nearly as long as the Ford Mustang and precisely as long as the Chevrolet Camaro. Over the years, the Charger nameplate has made its way onto everything from hatchbacks and luxury coupes to full-size sedans, but alas, it’s found its way home on the derriere of a four-door .

Pros

* The ideal blend of practicality and power.

Cons

* Softer, slightly more feminine design.

Looks

Having swapped its butch styling for softer curves, the eighth generation Charger has retained the overall aura of the previous generation model, but lost a chunk of its appeal in the process. With a large grille and narrow headlamps, it sports a scowling expression upfront, one that starkly contrasts the dreary and flatly repulsive rear end.

Feels

Nappa leather, Alcantara, and dashes of chrome embellish the cabin of the 2015 Dodge Charger, while the dashboard grasps the concept of minimalism a little more willingly. Above all, there’s a focus on functionality that takes precedence and that’s evident from the very beginning.

Engineering

The Charger takes on different personalities, from a sensible daily runner with a V6 engine under the hood, right up to an absolutely psychotic tarmac ripper with 707 horsepower in Hellcat guise. For those with a heavy right foot, the Charger also comes with Launch Control, allowing drivers’ to benefit from improved acceleration off the line.

 What’s on offer?

Four different engines can be had under the sculpted hood of the 2015 Dodge Charger. Initiating it all, is a 3.5 litre V6 that churns out 292 horsepower and 353 Nm of torque. The next level up, is in the V8 territory with the RT that generates 370 horsepower and 536 Nm of torque from its 5.7 litre engine. Following which, comes the SRT with a 6.4 litre engine and a combination of 485 horsepower and 644 Nm of torque. The halo model and talk of the automotive scene, however, is the SRT Hellcat, a family sedan with 707 horsepower and 881 Nm of torque.

Summing it…

The Charger is part of a very small circle in today’s marketplace. Its rivals are arguably less practical with fewer doors and tighter cabins, and have even ventured into the turbocharged realm. But while they may be worth considering for their price tags, there really is no replacement for displacement. The Charger remains king on that front.

    Hi Guys,

    Any current drivers of 2015/16 Charger here? How’s your long term experience with the car? Any areas of concern?

    I am looking at buying a used 2015 Charger RT. It has around 15,000 km on odometer. What should I double check before buying?

    Thanks

    The wait was over for me. Got my SRT 392 charger on 17th June 🙂

    Only thing I’ve noticed is that the option to enable or disable the horn chime with lock and unlock and also while remort starting the vehicle is missing. Seems like it’s been disabled on all chargers which are exported outside USA.

    3 months, omg!! That’s like the time for 2016 models to arrive. What is causing the delay, do you have any idea?

      Hi Hasham,

      Not too sure, but the second preference treatment in comparison to the US market surely isn’t helping out. Let’s just sit patiently with our fingers crossed and wait for that piece of American monstrosity to land onto our shores!

      Hey Hasham,

      According to sources, if all goes according to plan, they should be here in the next 3 months or so. Keep those fingers crossed!
