2015 Dodge Charger Gets Dramatic Facelift

Dodge says it reworked just about every body panel in redesigning its Charger for 2015.

While the car’s side profile seems mainly unchanged, the face of the Charger looks decidedly different. Taking cues from the smaller Dodge Dart, the 2015 Charger has a blacked-out grille, slimmer headlights, and C-shaped LED daytime running lamps. The front bumper and hood have also been redesigned, with the bumper now incorporating separate LED running light units.

The 5.7L HEMI is back for the high performance models, but four-cylinder deactivation technology gives the Charger’s fuel efficiency a boost.
