Driven: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392


Regular readers will have noticed by now that there is a general preponderance of Dodge Charger and Challenger models featured on our site…this is no mere coincidence. We at Speed:Sport:Life are huge fans of the breed in general – that is, torque-heavy, rear-wheel-driven, throwback American muscle cars. Dodge makes some of the absolute best cars in the business right now at fitting that exact criteria, and as long as they keep making them, we’re happy to keep driving them. The SRT 392 that recently spent a week with me is a perfect example of what makes the model so great.

Driven: 2015 Dodge Charger R/T

2015 Dodge Charger R/T Road & Track

Like the Challenger I drove a few weeks back, sales of the four-door Charger are primarily comprised of V6 and R/T V8 models, rather than the fire-breathing SRT models that typically grace the pages of buff books. Furthermore, for the middle class family man who needs a practical sedan, but doesn’t want to succumb to the boredom of a CamCordTima or the predictability of the rear-wheel drive compact luxury class, a big American brute like the Charger R/T provides a compelling alternative. What are the highlights and pitfalls of making such a choice? Read on to find out.

Driven: 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT


When we drove the new 2015 Challenger and Charger models last year, our drive time was admittedly skewed toward the top-dog SRT models. Though you can probably guess why that was the case (we were mostly focused on lapping the track), it’s really the V6 and R/T V8 models that make up the bulk of sales orders for these cars. In a few weeks, we’ll have a review of the 5.7-liter Charger R/T, and in the meantime, read on for our impressions of the V6-powered Challenger SXT.

Driven: 2015 Dodge Charger SRT 392 & Hellcat

2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

Though my ownership punch card skews heavily in favor of the import, I’m a documented fan of the American car as a species. I owned and loved a 5-liter 2011 Mustang GT. I find the current Corvette to be an absolutely fantastic specimen (though the Camaro leaves me a little cold). And though it’s been only a short while, I can consider myself an honest Mopar fan thanks to the Hellcat – specifically, the Challenger Hellcat I spent some time with over the summer. And now the newest variant to receive the monster 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat powertrain – the 2015 Charger – looks set to bring my budding domestic love affair to a full boil.

Tested: 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat


Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you probably know there’s a new, heavily revised 2015 Dodge Challenger on the horizon. And for the last week or so, there’s been an inundation of media about the fastest, most powerful iteration of said new Challenger (actually, make that any muscle car, ever) known as the Hellcat. I went to the press introduction to spend a day with the Challenger, in the hopes of getting past the hype and finding out what this new Hellcat is really all about. Read on to find out. Read More

Decoding the 2015 Challenger line-up

Clockwise starting from top: 2015 Dodge Challenger SXT, 2015 Dod

Trying to figure out which 2015 Challenger best fits your desired performance goals and options list requires poring over a labyrinth of commingled model names and trim packages; we figured a basic primer would be helpful coming out of our press introduction with the cars yesterday in rainy Portland. Here goes:
