2015 Dodge Charger SRT

The 2015 Charger SRT comes with a 6.4 liter HEMI V8 engine. It pumps out 485 horsepower and an unbelievable 475 pound per foot of torque!  The gas mileage is respectable in the Charger. It gets 15 miles per gallon in the city, and opens up to 25 miles per gallon, when you’re burning rubber down the highway. Not only does the Charger SRT have all that power, it grips the road like no other car in its class. The SRT comes with an adaptive damping suspension. Drivers can pre-select from either “Auto,” “Sport” or track modes, which quickly adjust the Charger SRT to pre-set conditions based on the drivers’ demands. Forget a smart car, Dodge created the first Genius car with the Charger SRT. All that beauty under the hood, carried over to the exterior or the Charger SRT.

The Charger SRT demands your attention the second you see it. The 20-inch aluminum wheels give the Charger a race car feel. Then the full length front grille with black trim, and the signature, but unique vented hood, give it that muscle car mystique. But it doesn’t stop there the sleek rear spoiler, sport back, and the dual 4 inch exhaust pipes give the SRT the complete muscle car look. That state of the art creativity and attitude go into the interior as well.

When you get into the Charger SRT, it will feel like you’re sitting behind the wheel of a race car… But with a lot more comfort… The front seats have perforated suede insert fabric so the driver and passengers planted in the seats. I love the red seats with the black leather trim option it is a fresh look. The front seats are also heated and ventilated to deliver the most climate comfortable ride possible. The Charger SRT comes with the Uconnect access system. This system integrates the cars audio, navigation, and climate control functions into one unit. The 8.4 inch touchscreen that controls the system is mounted on the dashboard. To keep you focused on the road, you can access the Uconnect system by voice command. Not only can you place phone calls and control the sound system, but you can put in navigation destinations, without taking your hands off the wheel.
