No, Dodge didn’t release a longer Dart sedan. What you’re looking at is the new 2015 Dodge Charger. Yeah, we were a little confused too.
The majority of the changes for 2015 include the updated exterior, which like we said, looks more like the Dart than a Charger. It also looked like Dodge was being a little flexible with the use of ’all-new’ because other than the front grille and those Dart-like headlights, everything looks pretty similar from its previous iteration.
Things under the hood are still familiar, too. The base 3.6-liter, Pentastar V-6 returns, as does the venerable 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8. The transmission options have changed, however. The eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic is now standard across the board, helping the Pentastar V-6 achieve 31 mpg highway while assisting the 5.7-liter HEMI sprint to 60 mph in roughly 5 seconds.

Just like the 2015 Charger, the 2015 Challenger made its debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show, enough time to at least announce itself as ready to jump in on America’s on-going pony war.
Revamped inside and out, the 2015 Challenger arrived in New York with exterior and interior updates, not the least of which included upgrades to the front and rear fascias to go with new exterior colors and wheel designs. Sure, the facelift is not as spectacular as the one seen on the Charger, but it should be enough to keep the Challenger marketable until the next-generation model arrives.
Power for the 2015 Challenger comes in a variety of sizes, beginning with a 3.6-liter, Pentastar V-6 unit rated at 305 horsepower. Going into V-8 territory, all four R/T variants will get the same 5.7-liter Hemi with 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque on tap. Lastly, the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 will pump the same 485 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque into the range-topping Scat Pack and 392 Scat Pack Shaker models.
No word yet on pricing, but its safe to assume that the base Challenger should sell for somewhere around $26,000 with the range-topping 392 model fetching at least $46,000.
