Dodge has released pricing for the full Charger lineup, starting with the V6/eight-speed Dodge Charger SE at $28,990 (all prices include $995 destination for the “49 states”).

Charger was thoroughly renovated for the 2015 model year, with a new look, suspension and electronics revisions, a standard eight-speed automatic for ever engine, and other upgrades. The top Charger, the SRT Hellcat, has been certified to run the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds on street tires, and reportedly has an unofficial 10.7 second time on drag slicks.

Charger Hellcat

To summarize, the prices are (including the 49-state destination charge of $995):

Dodge Charger SE $28,990 (add $3,000 for all wheel drive)
Dodge Charger SXT $30,99 (add $3,000 for all wheel drive)
Dodge Charger R/T $33,990 (add $3,000 for the Road & Track, or Charger R/T R/T; this includes the 5.7 V8)
Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack $40,990 (this includes the 392 V8)
Dodge Charger SRT 392 $48,380

The Charger has had a 62% increase in sales since 2009, over double the 30% growth of the standard full-size car segment. Charger buyers are on average 15 years younger than those of the competition within the segment, with more than half identifying themselves as Millennials or Generation Xers.

Even the SE has the LED-lit “racetrack” trail-lamps, variable intermittent speed sensitive vipers, P215/65R17 tires (RWD), 195 mm rear axle, 160 amp alternator, and capless fuel door.

Reasonable pricing across the board, especially considering the standard 8spd automatics.

There really won't be a Hemi AWD option anymore? Strange.
The size of the new RWD 8spd with the Hemi is stretching the limit of the floorpan. The AWD version of the 8spd and the Hemi would have necessitated a new floorpan/tunnel.

Now THAT is an explanation I find reasonable. The typical explanation of low sales seemed like bull****... why end sales now?

I'm guessing the hellcat at 64 grand includes gas guzzler tax?

I thought originally it was 60995 do.lars so I'm assuming the gas guzzler tax brings it to 64k

Still an awesome deal and it has created a very cool halo for the entire dodge brand..

That's a car many can afford that offers insane amounts of performance...and it seats four...

Personally i don't dig the latest styling changes on the very bold charger.

Sorry to see aerodynamics become more important that bold styling...I assume that's why dodge revamped the front end of the chargers

The challenger hellcat still has the cool look in tact which was the right thing to do.

I heard the smoking tire guys are doing a video comparison of the hellcat and the new alfa 4c...

The dichotomy of these two corporate projects that cost about the same should address age old questions of which you prefer...

Honestly I don't know which one I would opt for....and they couldn't be more different...

This is an instance where I believe Sergio is a mastermind ...

Both so cool...both so different and both priced about the same...

Which would you pick and why?

AWD+V8 Sales are really low and people who really buys the V8 model wants performance, your not getting much performance from the AWD+V8 configuration because of the extra 300lbs it adds to the car.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't both the 300 and Charger have strong AWD sales in northern states?

The packaging as noted above seems more likely.

Snow tires and separate wheels can be purchased quite easily for these v8 sedans.....for less than 3 grand.....and it would both handle inclement weather and extend the life of summer radials...

The AWD versions did seem a bit jacked up on their wheels....a bit awkward looking in my opinion...

The lease deals on the v8 charger in and around Detroit were really inexpensive awhile back....

I hope the styling updates that many of us find less than the earlier bolder version to be a greater sales success..

The cop cars I see really do look bad @ss! Hope none of the cops get a hellcat! .)

Great halo car for the brand....

Smart move Sergio!

I will add to 69gtsdart's comments, though, and clarify my statement. The relatively low sales of the AWD option (~7-10%), coupled with the lower share of V8 AWD sales meant that it wasn't feasible to redesign the AWD floors. Which is to say, if the V8/AWD package didn't require a redesign of the floor, it would probably still be around. I think the Charger police cars will still be available with the V8/AWD combo as it still uses the 5spd across the board.

4C, because, as hard as I can try, I can't build a 2200lb carbon fiber-structured sports car for $60k. I can buy a used Gen5 Camaro, 5.0 Mustang, or 6.4 Challenger/Charger and go to any number of shops and meet or exceed 707hp/11s 1/4 mile for $65k. While it is ridiculously awesome that we can now buy a 700+hp warranted car, there are a lot of compromises that go into making this work as a regular production car.

I'm actually seriously thinking of getting the Charger R/T Scat Pack. I know everyone's talking about the Hellcat, but 485 hp for $41k seems like a screaming bargain to me.
:yup:

Plus, according to the Dodge site I could potentially lease a loaded 2015 Challenger Scat Pack (similar to Charger Scat Pack pricing, I'm sure) for like $450 monthly. And that's 15,000 miles annually. Hmm.

Where has it been stated as being only <11%? I'd be interested in reading that because it doesn't seem like it could be that low! :confused:
