Article by Andrew Christian, on April 8, 2014

At the 2014 New York International Auto Show, Chrysler prepared something special for us: the 2015 Dodge Challenger and the 2015 Dodge Charger. Both vehicles with be revealed o Thursday, April 17, just ahead of Dodge brand’s 100th anniversary this summer. According to the American carmaker now owned by Fiat, the 2015 Dodge Challenger is inspired by the legendary muscle car and it is new from the inside out.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Dodge Charger will also take the stage at the Jacob Javits Center in New York. The 2015 Charger promises to be even better than its predecessor as it received a full-body makeover and almost every single body panel has been resculpted. Moreover, the 2015 Challenger SRT coupe is also expected to debut the long-rumored Hellcat engine.

If we listen to all the rumors the Hellcat is a 6.2-liter version of the well-known HEMI V8, fitted with a supercharger in order to deliver over 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. This means that the 2015 Challenger SRT will actually be more powerful than the less successful SRT Viper and will take on muscle cars such as the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Rumors also indicate that a new Super Bee may be on its way. For those who don’t know, back in 1970s, Dodge offered several models that were featuring the Super Bee logo. These versions were not quite successful, but many Mopar muscle car fans still remember them.
