Caught on camera – 2015 Dodge Challenger in India
Muscle cars have been quite a rage in the US with the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang fighting for supremacy. But with India becoming a major market for international car brands, it`s not going to be a long wait before we see the iconic Mustang on Indian roads, with Ford planning to launch the car in India during the festive season this year. But what has surprised us are the images of the latest edition of the Dodge Challenger caught on camera. Although, it is still unclear if the model spotted is India bound or is it a private vehicle imported to our shores.
Under the hood of the 2015 Challenger is a 3.6 litre, Pentastar V6 petrol motor outputting 305 BHP and a 6.4 litre Hemi V8, SRT Hellcat petrol engine banging out a massive 707 HP. Power is channelized to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox or an 8-speed auto transmission.
The Classic American muscle car comes standard with keyless entry, Start/Stop button, 7 inch infotainment display, leather upholstered seats, 5-link rear suspension with optional Blistein high performance dampers and independent front suspension. Retarding power is provided by disc brakes equipped on all wheels, besides, safety fitments like all speed traction control; electronic stability program and multiple air-bags have also been employed. The 2015 Dodge Challenger line-up is priced from $26,995 to $ 59,995.
If at all the Dodge Challenger is launched in India, it will rival the likes of the Ford Mustang which is expected to launch in India next month.
