Didn't think the new 2015 dodge challenger could hold even to the old. I was right; they're new and improved! Went in to Lithia of Roseburg Oregon to find a new family auto. Expected to leave empty handed. Came home with the 2015 dodge challenger. Yes, we bought a challenger for our family car! We've had this car for over 2 months now. And I've tried to pick it apart- as I am a very skeptical person. Just didn't happen. EVERYTHING said about this car is true! It's safe, smooth, & sooo comfortable. So many wonderful features- WAY TOO MANY to list! Space is great- even has a huge trunk. Gas mileage is averaging 18-23 mpg (with a hemi) ! Sound system is AMAZING! And most important; the safety features in this car couldn't get any better. Haven't ever felt this safe in a car other than the classics. A car seems simple, but it's not. It becomes part of your family. It too becomes a protector. But don't believe me- go check them out! No hassles with the contract- got EXACTLY everything we asked for. Just can't say enough... Thanks so much to Pepler & Young over at Lithia!

Absolutely speechless

Let me begin by saying I drove the original when they were new! Drove them all basically as all my friends had one of each kind of Muscle Car available back then. I personally had a Sunbeam Tiger 289 , which in those days was considered the poor man's Cobra. So when I make comparisons here it will be based solely on my experience with my new R/T Plus Challenger with Hemi. Driver convenience pkg, Harmon Kardon 18 speaker with sub woofers( it was in it, but I don't boom boom),Tri-Color Black/Red Leather, 8.4Nav, HD Headlights, Auto 8 speed, and so on. This car is nut's! It is smooth. Shifting is smooth & flawless. ( Glad I got the Auto) Mpg even on break-in is 20+. Handling much better I believe than presented in articles. Comfort is unbelievable, as in great. Response from under the hood is quick, as is the vehicle itself. The infotainment system is I believe to be one of the best, if not the best in the biz. The options in which you can operate this vehicle is superb. From normal to sport,(transmission) and normal to comfort(steering). You can actually feel the difference. The people space in this vehicle, far exceeds that of the Mustang or Camaro. The quietness and how it absorbs the bumps in the road is unreal. The trunk space is huge, plus do not forget the split fold down rear seats. The only thing I was amazed at was the battery was sitting next to the 2 sub-woofers where the spare normally sits. But hey they had to put it somewhere I guess. Otherwise if you are looking for a family car for 4, or a luxury car for 2 plus the occasional 4 or 5 you would be crazy to pass this up. More than the best bang for your buck.

I've enjoyed my time with the 2015 Challenger SXT, This was just the base model. It came well equipped. Dual zone climate control, Bluetooth, LED daytime running lights and LED taillights. All standard equipment with more i didn't mention.. The V6 engine was excellent with the 8 speed automatic.. I averaged 22-23 mpg and i pushed it hard at times. The ride feels floaty but comfortable. The interior was roomy and the build quality was excellent. All challengers come with a smart key and push button start that all worked well. I can't speak on reliability but Dodge has had issues with that.. I enjoyed this car but the Mustang and Camaro both have their strong points. I liked that the Mustang came standard with High intensity headlamps. And how the Camaro has a larger touchscreen standard.

Best on the market

Thought I would holdout for the Hellcat, glad I did not. Got the SRT-8, loaded, with 6-speed manual. More than enough car with 485 HP. Scary thing is, it is SO smooth, you don't realize it until you look at the speedometer, how fast you are approaching 100 mph. Takes some self restraint not to bust it open all the time. For the $17,000 I saved not waiting to order a Hellcat, I have plenty of money leftover for new tires for the lifetime of the car.

I bought this vehicle in October 2014 and it's been almost 3 months now without a single complaint. I went to a dealership just to test drive it and I ended up purchasing it when they gave me a very good deal. I got a V6 SXT with Super Track Pak which includes 20" Hyper Black rims, performance steering and brakes etc. 8.4" screen with Navigation - very easy to use and very helpful with performance pages, as well as Alpine Sound system which gives it a great and clear sound. Overall, the car is great, especially when you activate the sport mode when the rpm does not drop below 2000 and you can feel the power even though it's a V6 with 'only' 305hp. The things I like the most are the whole new roomy interior (big trunk and back seat as well), and the feeling of driving a sport muscle car with a great gas mileage - I drive 2/3 of full tank on highway and 1/3 in city and get about 23 mpg.

2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus

I bought a 2015 Chally for my son (not his first car.) I got him the manual, (Yes, just like any other car loving dad should do, I taught him how to drive a stick.) It is a blast HOWEVER, I am one of the very few who bought a Hellcat before they disappeared so trust me when I say, DO NOT DRIVE THE HELLCAT AND THEN THIS! This pales in comparison to the hellcat but no kidding. What the R/T does offer is serious bang for you buck. The interior compared to previous generation is amazing. I own multiple luxury high performance cars, but this is impressive for a big, heavy 'Merica muscle car. His is this bright, shiny red with just about every option, The most important option to get is hands down THE SUPER TRACK PACK. DO NOT GET ONE WITHOUT IT. It is the most important feature. You cannot forget this is 2 ton plus car, it doesn't ride on rails but this really, really helps. (You get better brakes, suspension, tires, steering, you get paddle shifters, some exterior changes and some sweet rims.) The 0-60 according to Car and Driver is 5.1 which in all my years of auto obsession, that is great for a 2 ton plus car. I did see a YouTube video of some guy getting 5.0 with the stick (like they say," it's as fast as you can shift it." ) All in all, it is in my humble and honest opinion that the R/T plus with super track pack is a better value then already excellent value R/T scat pack, but maybe that's just me.

I purchased a 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T February 20, 2015 and have no complaints. With 375hp and 410ft/lbs on tap, you can easily achieve any speed limit with a smile. Comfortable and nimble for a "big" car, I have reach consistent 28 mpg when I use a light foot. If you are looking for the look and styling cues of an authentic muscle car, look no further as this car is for you.

On March 14 we bought a B5 blue 2015 Challenger RT Plus with a manual transmission. I love this car! The ride is nice, it handles flawlessly, the interior is absolutely beautiful. It is a real head turner. There is definitely a learning curve on all the electronics so I recommend watching the owner's DVD as soon as you get home.
