Retro muscle car fans rejoiced when Dodge reintroduced the Challenger for the 2008 model year. Its big, bold, and most importantly, V8-powered attitude made it an instant success. Years later, a partial design refresh and library of new engines brought new life to the 2015 Mopar muscle car. So, should you buy a 2015 Dodge Challenger like the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat?

Are 2015 Dodge Challengers good cars?

The 2015 Dodge Challenger rode in on a modest styling change that updated the aesthetics and lighting of the brute without losing its retro demeanor. It wasn’t just exterior updates and LED lighting either. Dodge imbued the 2015 Challenger with a more comfortable and modern interior, including Chrysler’s then-latest infotainment system.

The Dodge Challenger also offered more powerful engine options than ever, from the 3.6L Pentastar V6 to the 707-horsepower 6.2L Hellcat V8. According to U.S. News, the revised muscle car also has a great reliability rating. Finally, the big Dodge coupe also has a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

How fast is a 2015 Dodge Challenger?

Depending on the trim, the 2015 Dodge Challenger is a very fast coupe. While the 3.6L V6-powered SXT might lack urgency, the 5.7L Hemi V8 R/T steps it up a notch. Still, the big, heavy muscle car doesn’t really find its stride until you equip it with the 6.4L V8. Specifically, the 485-horsepower SRT 392 and R/T Scat Pack use the big motor to hit sixty in just 4.2 seconds.

However, the real quick trim is the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. In the first year of Hellcat, the 2015 model year car could motivate its 4,449 lb curb weight to sixty in just 3.7 seconds. According to MotorTrend, the 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque are enough to plow through a quarter-mile drag in just 11.7 seconds. In fact, it’s enough horsepower to overcome the angular shape of the land yacht and hit a top speed of 199 mph.

How much is a 2015 Dodge Challenger?

The Dodge Challenger SXT has a fair purchase price of $22,847 with 50,000 miles. Finding a similar V8-powered R/T will likely set you back around $27,665, and a Scat Pack Shaker will demand roughly $33,430. However, you’ll have to dig deeper to get your hands on a supercharged SRT Hellcat. According to Kelley Blue Book (KBB), a 50,000-mile 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has a fair purchase price of $49,487. 

Which Challenger should you buy?

The 2015 Dodge Challenger gets good safety scores, above-average reliability scores, and a library of engine options. Still, if you want the most true-to-form muscle car you can get, find a used R/T Scat Pack Shaker. The shaker assembly screams naturally-aspirated big-V8 power. However, if you want big horsepower and sub-four-second sprints to sixty, your search should include just one name: Hellcat.
