The Dodge Challenger SRT8

Confirmed: 2015 Dodge Challenger to debut at 2014 New York Auto Show

While sitting in on a round table discussion with the folks from Motor Trend, SRT boss Ralph Gilles offered a few bits of information on the next generation Dodge Challenger - including a 2014 New York International Auto Show debut for the redesigned Mopar muscle car.

The announcement of the 2014 New York debut of the 2015 Dodge Challenger came from SRT boss Ralph Gilles as he met with a handful of people from Motor Trend for a video roundtable to discuss the 2014 SRT Viper, the new Viper TA and the Motor Trend tests that first found the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 victorious over the new Viper GTS followed by a second test where the new Viper TA bested the Corvette ZR1. After Gilles and the rest of the crew in the video were done talking about the Viper – during which time the new Chevrolet Camaro Z28 came up – the discussion turned to the Challenger and SRT’s answer to the new high performance Camaro.

“The Challenger is about to go under the knife…its actually under the knife as we speak,” said Gilles. “We’re doing a lot to [the Challenger] and were going to come with an answer for [the Camaro Z/28] and for our friends at Ford.”
