2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: 204 mph for $64,990

You’d think owning the world’s most powerful production sedan would require forfeiture of your firstborn child, but not when that sedan is a Dodge Charger.

Chrysler released pricing for the entire 2015 Dodge Charger lineup including the supercharged HEMI V8 Hellcat, which starts at an attainable $64,990, including destination and gas guzzler tax.

That price buys a sedan that’s faster than anything wearing a three-pointed star or a flying “B.”

The Charger SRT Hellcat’s 6.2-liter V8 produces the same 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque it does in the two-door Challenger Hellcat. That’s enough to launch the Charger to a top speed of 204 mph, and allow for 11-second quarter-mile passes.

If your tire budget can’t accommodate that, Dodge will also offered a 2015 Charger SRT 392. Based on the 2014 Charger SRT, it features a 6.4-liter HEMI good for 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, all for $48,380.

At the bottom of the HEMI food chain is the Charger R/T model. Its 5.7-liter V8 produces a respectable 370 hp and 395 lb-ft. Base price is $33,990, which Dodge says is lowest price for a V8 sedan this year. Road and Track and Scat Pack options can liven things up from there.

Base Charger SE ($28,990) and SXT ($30,990) models get a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and the 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque it provides. All-wheel drive is available on the SXT; all other models stick with rear-wheel drive.

All 2015 Charger models get a variety of improvements and changes, including revised styling, the latest version of Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system, and an upgraded interior featuring a new steering wheel, electronic shifter, and TFT gauge cluster.

The 2015 Dodge Charger will hit showrooms before the end of the year, except for the Hellcat, which begins production in early 2015.

Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally kicks up some dirt
Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally driving on a dirt road.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV pushed the hallowed Mustang nameplate in a different direction, and it's doing that again with a new performance variant. Debuting in 2024, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is designed for fun on both pavement and dirt.

Rallying is a form of motorsport where drivers compete to set the quickest time over a course — usually a closed road or trail — rather than a dedicated racetrack that includes a variety of surfaces like dirt, gravel, or even snow. Rallying has inspired some epic performance road cars over the years, including the Subaru WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and Ford's own Focus RS, but it's never really been associated with the Mustang.

BMW scraps its unpopular approach to heated seats
Driver's seat and dashboard of the 2023 BMW iX M60.

BMW caused much consternation last year when it launched a subscription-only option for heated car seats.

The idea of having to pay a monthly fee of $18 to keep your posterior warm during the winter months still seems as absurd as ever, but the good news is that the German automaker has now decided to scrap the fee. What particularly irked customers was that they felt they were being forced to cough up extra for functions that would previously have been expected as standard. The fiasco even prompted a community of hackers to offer their services to unlock the feature for those unwilling to pay extra for it.

Cruise says it’s nearing approval for mass production of futuristic robotaxi
Interior of Cruise's Origin vehicle.

Robotaxi company Cruise is “just days away” from getting regulatory approval that would pave the way for mass production of its purpose-built driverless vehicle, CEO Kyle Vogt said on Thursday in comments reported by the Detroit Free Press.

General Motors-backed Cruise unveiled the vehicle -- called Origin -- in early 2020, presenting the kind of driverless car that we all dreamed of when R&D in the sector kicked off years ago; a vehicle without a steering wheel and without pedals. A vehicle with passenger seats only.
