Discover the all-new 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger
Posted on: 01 August 2015

Dhofar Automotive has always been known for bringing best-in-class, high-performance vehicles to Oman, and the brand’s recently launched 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger are testimony to this. Both vehicles are in a class of their own; and continue to impress customers throughout the Sultanate.

The Dodge brand, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2014, moves in to the next century of its history by giving the Charger four-door sedan a full-body makeover and offering an impressive lineup of expanded powertrains for 2015. The 2015 Dodge Charger is totally updated and features a new state-of-the-art eight-speed automatic transmission.

New for 2015, the Chrysler Group’s TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on every Dodge Charger model, and the 2015 Charger also 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. A naturally aspirated 485hp in the SRT 392 and the new 6.2-litre supercharged HEMI Hellcat V8 engine will be arriving soon to the showrooms.
 
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. To help Charger keep its edge, Dodge has loaded the new sedan with new technologies and a host of premium features, such as high-end interiors, the latest technologies and impressive powertrain options, along with a new exterior design that is distinctly Dodge.

For 2015, Dodge has gone deep with the remake of the Dodge Challenger. The iconic 1971 Challenger inspired the design of this modern day muscle car, but the re-creation of this classic styling extends well beneath the surface of the sheet metal. Dodge has completely re-engineered the Challenger with a new best-in-class 485hp 392 HEMI and TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission powertrain, an upgraded suspension, new class-exclusive technologies and a completely new interior.

Chris Edwards, General Manager for Dhofar Automotive, sole distributors of the Dodge range in Oman averred, “The 2015 Charger and Challenger are a knockout punch from Dodge in the ongoing fight for muscle-car supremacy, and continue to rejuvenate buyer interest in the segment. Both cars are extremely refined and comfortable on the inside; and unlike some of the muscle cars of the past, won’t drain your wallet at the gas pump.”
