    Dodge Bringing Revamped Charger and Challenger To New York


    • Dodge Readies A Big Showing For New York


    New York looks to be the big show for Dodge this year. The brand announced yesterday that they'll showing off the revised 2015 Charger and Challenger at the show.

    The 2015 Charger looks undergoing some major changes judging from a teaser shot released by Dodge which shows the blunt, angry looks are changing into something a bit smoother. As for the Challenger, Dodge says in the release "features a new powertrain combination that is sure to get enthusiasts "abuzz." Could this mean that the rumored Hellcat V8 with up to 640 horsepower will play a key role? Also expect tweaks to the front and rear end, along with a revised interior.

    We'll have full details on these two models in a couple week's time.

    DODGE TO SET BIG APPLE AND CAR ENTHUSIASTS ABUZZ WITH REVEAL OF ITS TWO ICONIC MUSCLE CARS

    April 7, 2014: Auburn Hills, Mich. - Dodge is giving an early look at its new 2015 Dodge Challenger and the 2015 Dodge Charger, both of which will be revealed Thursday, April 17 at the New York Auto Show, just ahead of the Dodge brand's 100th anniversary this summer.

    Inspired by the classic Dodge Challenger, the iconic muscle car is new from the inside out for 2015 and features a new powertrain combination that is sure to get enthusiasts "abuzz."

    The world's most-successful, four-door muscle car – the 2015 Dodge Charger – will also take the stage at the Jacob Javits Center in New York. The new Charger receives a full-body makeover with nearly every single body panel being resculpted. The result? Check out the reveal in New York to see this sleeker, more modern appearance.

    The new Challenger isn't terribly different from the current car. It looks more like a '71-ish model than a '70 model now. The interior is sort of like the current Charger's, except a little more polished.

    The Charger ... yeah. Not too sure what to say about it right now. Mixed feelings.

    The Dart look does not bother me, I hope as others have mentioned that the interior becomes better with two tone options.

    The 300... oh man, will it adopt the long, low, 6 window fastback look, pioneered by the Audi A7 and copied wholesale?

      At first glance, you might be thinking why is Buick teasing the LaCrosse sedan again. But actually, what you are looking at is the 2018 Buick Enclave that will be debuting next month at the New York Auto Show. The image shows the Enclave following the footsteps of the Encore and LaCrosse with a new waterfall grille and slimmer headlights. From spy shots we reported on last month, we're not expecting any major changes in the overall shape.
      Expect the current 3.6L V6 producing 305 horsepower to be residing under the hood, paired with a nine-speed automatic.

      Ford has teased the next-generation Fiesta ST before its official debut later this week. In a video posted to Ford's Instagram, a pre-production model is seen driving through a factory. From what we can see, it looks like the ST will look similar to the standard Fiesta ST-Line shown back in November. We're expecting some other design changes to make the ST stand out from other Fiesta models. No word on the powertrain, though some suspect it will a 1.5L EcoBoost three-cylinder four-cylinder.
