Spied! 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: It Was Only a Matter of Time
What It Is: A pair of Dodge’s full-size, four-door bruisers wearing front and rear camo, reported to be packing a version of the Challenger SRT’s Hellcat V-8. Caught testing in southeast Michigan, the partial cover-up on these Chargers can’t hide the presence of a large hood scoop, aggressive chin and trunk-lid spoilers, and larger exhaust tips. The white Charger pictured features plain honeycomb upper-grille inserts, following the styling lead set by the Hellcat SRT Challenger. While photos alone can be misleading—often intentionally so—the earlier news that Chrysler has filed papers with the Society of Automotive Engineers regarding the use of the Hellcat V-8 in the Charger indicates that the carmaker is already invested in finding a home for said engine under the sedan’s hood. Combined with rolling stock identical to that of the Challenger Hellcat (20-inch wheels wrapped in 275/40 Pirelli P Zero Nero tires) and the presence of upgraded brakes in the form of slotted rotors and Brembo calipers, the writing on the wall is fairly legible.

One of our most visionary filmmakers, Spike Jonze delights in showing us the unexpected. In Her, his most daring script to date (he won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar), Jonze imagines a future in which romantic relationships no longer require two humans. Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a writer of other peoples’ love letters, acquires a cutting-edge operating system. Possessed of artificial intelligence, his OS assumes the female persona “Samantha” (Scarlett Johansson), with whom Theodore falls in love. Phoenix is brilliant in what amounts to a one-man show, delivering a richly detailed character study of the dark, introverted geek. In many ways, Johansson has the more difficult task, portraying a new and constantly evolving being, who, lacking physical substance, must define herself through words alone.

There’s now a mountain of detail available on the 2015 Ford F-150, as the entire order guide has surfaced on the Internet. CLICK HERE to download the entire 34-page, extremely detailed document.

In our zeal to bring this information to you as quickly as possible, we’re not going to do an in-depth analysis of the entire lineup—but there are a few major changes to highlight. The F-150 comes in five trim levels: the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum. The STX, FX2, Limited, and SVT Raptor models are not offered for 2015. However, there is an FX4 Off-Road package (55A) offered on 4×4 models in all five series. The King Ranch and Platinum series will come in base and luxury versions.

As with any new vehicle, there are production constraints. The restyled bed seems to be a headache as the plastic bed liner, stowable ramps, hard and soft tonneau covers, and even the eight-foot bed itself are all marked “Late Availability.” There’s a heap of information to digest, so grab a chair.
