Ladies and gentlemen, let's get the most salient bit of information out of the way right off the bat: $64,495 (all prices exclude $1,695 destination). That's the amount of money Dodge dealers will be asking for (at the very least, naturally) for a 2015 Charger Hellcat. That rather reasonable sum will bring home its buyer a 6.2-litre Hemi V8 engine boasting a supercharger to post such gaudy figures as 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, leading to a top speed of 204 miles per hour to go along with an NHRA-certified quarter-mile time of 11.0 seconds.
With that out of the way, the rest of the 2015 Dodge Charger pricing information breaks down as follows: $32,495 will deliver a sedan with a 292-horsepower 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Moving up one step of the ladder nets the buyer an SXT model with the same engine, but a nicer chunk of technology and optional equipment for a $3,100 premium. All-wheel drive adds another $5,300. Hemi V8-powered R/T models now boast an eight-speed transmission bolted to the same well-loved 370-horsepower engine as before, for a base price of $39,495.
The SRT 392 model that had hitherto been the top-performing Charger brings with it an asking price of $50,495 while bargain hunters can equip a Charger R/T Scat Pack machine with that same 485-horsepower 6.4-litre Hemi, albeit with somewhat less posh interior bits and pieces, the removal of the 392's adjustable suspension and hi-po wheel and tire package for $46,495.
There are a few other ways to order a Charger in 2015, and we suggest you read all about them in the press release below. We don't have to tell you how amazing it is that you can now mosey on down to your local Dodge dealer and order a 707-hp sedan for under $65,000. Neither must it be said that the SRT's 485 ponies are nothing to sneeze at. In any case, we're officially basking in the golden age of horsepower.
