Posted on: 05 April 2015

With Baftas, Golden Globes, Oscars and the likes, one can’t help but also recognize the real hard-working actors in many movies and television series: the cars! They dominate the screen; they propel the action, and also do all their own stunts. One of the world’s most cinematic car brands – the Dodge Charger too has featured in several timeless movies, music videos and television series such as –  , ‘The Fast and the Furious’, ‘Bullitt’, ‘Need for Speed’, ‘Dukes of Hazard’ and ‘CSI: Miami, NY’ to name a few.
 
The Dodge has been a part of the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise since its inception, and will also be seen in the latest "Furious 7," in theaters April 3. In the film, a Candy Red 2015 Dodge Charger, driven by Dominic (Dom) Toretto (Vin Diesel) in various chase scenes throughout "Furious 7"; a Sublime Green and Black 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T driven by Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodrigues); and an armored 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited driven by Tej Parker (Chris "Ludacris" Bridges), play prominent roles in the movie. In all, Fiat-Chrysler has provided nearly 30 vehicles for the movie production.

Completely updated, the Dodge Charger 2015 features a new state-of-the-art eight-speed automatic transmission that’s standard across the expanded lineup that now includes the all-new Charger SRT Hellcat, highlighting the added performance of the new 2015 Dodge Charger lineup.

The Charger offers a full range of powerful yet fuel-efficient engine options, including the award-winning 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar engine, which delivers up to 31 mpg (7.58 L/100km) on SE and SXT models - the legendary 370hp 5.7-litre HEMI® V8 on the R/T - the 6.4-litre HEMI V8, which punches out a best-in-class, naturally aspirated 485hp and 475 lb.-ft. of torque in the SRT 392 and the new 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI Hellcat V8 engine. Even the chassis of the all-new 2015 Dodge Charger has been designed, engineered and fine-tuned to deliver world-class performance and efficiency, thanks to advanced technological solutions including Electric Power Steering (EPS) and all-new lighter weight axles.

Up front, the Charger SRT Hellcat, the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan receives the larger, power-bulge aluminium hood, which features super charges and a dedicated cold-air intake - a visual styling cue from the first Viper coupe built in 1996 - and dual air extractors to ensure effective removal of heat and reduced air turbulence in the engine compartment. Its redesigned front fascia and grille on uses unique, blacked out upper and lower textures to produce the menacing look that is sure to make onlookers notice the ultimate performance sedans. An integrated front splitter optimizes airflow to the cooling modules without compromising vehicle balance.

For 2015, redesigned hood, fenders, front and rear fascias, headlamps, tail lamps, front doors and spoiler all work together to provide the new Charger with a chiseled, nimble and lighter-weight appearance. Dodge Charger’s restyled driver-focused interior features new premium, soft-touch materials, a new full-colour 7-inch (177.8mm) customisable DID gauge cluster, plus a new instrument panel centre stack with the newest Uconnect system with segment’s largest available 8.4-inch (213.36mm) touchscreen display available.

Furthermore, the Dodge Charger offers more than 80 safety and security features, including many that are new for 2015. New available features for the model year include Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, which provides autonomous braking and, under certain circumstances, slows or brings vehicle to full stop when frontal collision appears imminent. For the ultimate driving experience, the 2015 Dodge Charger also offers a slew of high-tech features, including the award-winning Uconnect touchscreen systems with the segment’s largest 8.4-inch (213.36mm) display and available premium Harman Kardon audio systems for the ultimate in sound quality.
