The 2015 Dodge Challenger will redefine your perception of muscle-cars — and keep you safe.

Though the 2015 Dodge Challenger has made history as the most powerful muscle car ever, it was also recently awarded a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. With performance, styling, and now safety, it seems like there’s nothing the new Challenger doesn’t have.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger safety features are quite impressive, including the Forward Collision Warning system, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Path Detection among other things. According to Chrysler, the new Challenger model has over 70 innovative safety and security features. In particular, the model excelled during individual crash-tests in front- and side-impacts.

“The new Dodge Challenger coupe further demonstrates our commitment to broaden the proliferation of advanced safety technologies, such as driver-assist features,” says Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice President of Vehicle Safety and Regulatory.

Forget everything you know about traditional muscle cars – the new Challenger has incredible horsepower, great handling, innovative safety features, and a low price tag. To check out the new 2015 Dodge Challenger, stop by Corwin Dodge today.

Dodge Challenger Engine Named One of 10 Best Engines for 2015

The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat boasts some ridiculous power.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat boasts some ridiculous power.

The SRT Hellcat version of the 2015 Dodge Challenger is one of the most track-ready vehicles ever built by Dodge, and it’s got an amazing engine to match that caliber, too. The engine is a 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V8, which pushes the new Challenger to 707 horsepower. Somehow, miraculously, that same engine also manages 22 mpg on the highway to boot.

All those great numbers led Ward’s Auto to include the new Challenger engine on their list of the 10 Best Engines for 2015. Another Chrysler engine, an EcoDiesel engine employed in the Ram 1500, also made the list.

“These two distinctly different engines represent the wide range of powertrain-engineering expertise and technology at Chrysler Group,” said Bob Lee, Vice President and Head of Engine, Powertrain and Electrified Propulsion Systems Engineering. “For their considerable might, they also are both highly efficient and refined – key hallmarks of Chrysler Group powertrains. Such attributes have helped power our vehicles to the top of the sales charts.”

However, both of these engines have at least one thing in common—an uncommon combination of power and efficiency. That’s the key to Dodge innovation right now: finding uncompromising ways to give customers what they want. To find what you want today, just come see us here at Corwin Dodge.

Two New Dodge Viper Models Available for Customer “Sold Orders”

Back in September, Dodge made the decision to reposition the Dodge Viper within its lineup, presenting a new price and accessories options that the limited-production hand-built car didn’t previously have. Now, Dodge Viper sales momentum is building, allowing the American carmaker to open up the system for dealers to place customer “sold orders” of both the 2015.5 Dodge Viper GTS and TA 2.0 Special Edition, which are joining the Viper lineup.

“The jump in Viper’s September sales after we announced the new $84,995 starting price showed that the overall repositioning to competitively price Viper with the first 1992 model was on target. But that was just the start,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge and SRT. “Today, we’re expanding the Viper lineup by offering the track ready Viper TA 2.0 and GTS models with even more content. This limited-production hand-built super car is the flagship of the Dodge brand, and we will continue to show our commitment to its future.”

The two new Viper models will offer more standard content compared to the 2014 models they replace, while the GTS starts with an MSRP of $107,995 and the TA 2.0 Special Edition starts with an MSRP of $101,995.
