You would have to be pretty farsighted to miss the sedan's new <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/dodge/dart/">Dart</a>-like nose, and it's likely going to be quite polarizing to the car's fans. Gone are the previous furrowed, aggressive headlights in favor of a wider, friendlier look.<br /><br />While the more rounded headlights and narrower grille are going to be the first thing most people notice, <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/dodge/">Dodge</a> claims its designers have made changes to nearly every panel on the Charger. The hood dips down deeper at the front, and the doors show off a more angled version of the car's shoulder blister. LED running lights and taillights are standard on all models, and SXT and RT trims get LED foglights. Even though the front might not be as intimidating, Dodge has hung onto the sedan's muscular stance with angular contours making up the rest of the redesign.<br /><br />Under the hood is the same engine range you've come to know over recent years. Both the 5.7-liter V8 and the 3.6-liter V6 return for 2015, with the Hemi making 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque, and the standard Pentestar outputting 292 hp and 260 lb-ft. All models are now equipped with Chrysler's TorqueFlight eight-speed automatic as standard. Fuel economy for V8 Chargers is predicted at 16 miles per gallon city and 25 mpg highway, compared to 15 mpg / 25 mpg last year with a five-speed automatic. All models also come with electric power steering, and the axles are cast from aluminum to save weight.<br /><br />The interior sees many of the same changes as the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/17/embargo-thu-4-17-12-01-am-est-2015-dodge-challenger-gets-6-4l-48/">Challenger</a> with a new 7-inch display located between the speedometer and tachometer, and all models but the SE come with an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system with optional navigation. Drivers hang on to a redesigned three-spoke steering wheel with available paddle shifters. There are a ton of new safety assistance features available on the sedan, including lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and more.<br /><br />Trim levels are simplified from seven entries currently down to four: SE, SXT, R/T and R/T Road and Track. All-wheel drive is now optional on the base SE model, but it's no longer offered on the R/T, which means it won't be possible to get the 5.7-liter V8 driving all four wheels.<br /><br />The new Charger will be on dealer lots by the end of the year. <a href="/2014/04/17/2015-dodge-charger-official-photos-new-york/#continued">Scroll down</a> for the entire detailed release on the refreshed sedan.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/17/2015-dodge-charger-official-photos-new-york/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>2015 Dodge Charger darts into NY traffic</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/04/17/2015-dodge-charger-official-photos-new-york/">2015 Dodge Charger darts into NY traffic</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Thu, 17 Apr 2014 00:03:00 EST.
