Review of the 2015 Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger. You can’t get much more muscular when it comes to this muscle car. It defined the late 1960's and early 1970's as THE car to own. It has left its mark on the automobile industry and continues to through today.
Sure, the 2015 Dodge Challenger may not come close to its grandfather’s supreme steel body, carbureted engine, or the ground-pounding sound of its throttle. But Dodge did a great job keeping the overall intimidating design complete with the dual headlights. The 2015 Dodge Challenger offers a lot of features including comfort, an eye-opening luxury-like interior, and great performance.
