The 2015 Dodge Charger, shown at the New York motor show, has received a significant set of revisions, with the majority of body panels replaced and a new interior.

LED lighting has been added front and back and the cabin features a customisable TFT digital gauge cluster and revised centre stack with touchscreen infotainment systems. 

The basic setup of the Charger is classic front engine, rear-wheel drive. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. Buyers have the choice of a 3.6-litre V6 or 5.7-litre V8. All-wheel drive is optional with the V6 engine. The V8 develops 370bhp while the V6 puts out 292bhp, or 300bhp with the optional Rallye Appearance Group. 

The Charger R/T (Road and Track) features a V8 engine, a shorter final drive and a recalibrated computer with specific engine and transmission settings. Dodge claims a 0-60mph time in the high 5.0sec range. 

The updated Chrysler LX platform includes new electric power steering and lighter axles. The all-wheel drive system features an active transfer case with a front-axle disconnect system, which improves fuel economy.

Like the Challenger, a large pallet of colours can be had both inside and out the Charger. Six different 20-inch wheel designs are available, too.

There are no plans for the model to be imported into the UK.

I think so,just a shame they didn't do what Ford took a chance on and engineer it for RHD.
