Thanks RS for the info !! My question, and maybe I have overlooked this, but what kind of pricing can we expect to see on the SRT with Hellcat engine ?

I'd buy that, it probably will run 200 if the HC numbers being thrown around are legit. Don't forget the "little" 392 either, with a bit of weight loss (supposedly happening) and a bump to 500 HP (also supposedly happening) those have the potential to run 11's stock on their own, which for most guys will be enough.

Would be for me, especially for the price versus whatever the HC will be going for (probably 20K more, at least)...

This Thread is quite amusing considering that most of the info posted in the OP has already been confirmed in other threads as far back as July 2012. As everything was delayed from the supposed 2014MY introduction. Even the 1971 style Grille and taillight treatment was reported on at that time.

Most of the Hellcat Package has been in place since 2012MY with Mode Suspension and Launch Control 2013MY. There will be wider rear wheels and rubber similar to the Goodyear F1 G2 compound tires on the Shelby.

The big difference between an LC and new 2015MY Challenger is that the cars receives a new Galvanized styled Aluminum floorpan to accept the 8-speed Automatic and change from the Benz to Fiat/Maserati style aluminum suspension parts that will reduce weight on a hardtop V6 model approximately 300 lbs and 150 lbs w/Hellcat SC Hemi.

Expect a reduction in rear diff gearing for the Hellcat. Still 3.06 for auto and 3.73s for the 6speed manual trans. The Hellcats power output will be between 580 and 640 depending on final drive ratio and MPG standards.

Actually no, it isn't. Its a great thread because its now OFFICIAL. Who cares what was written over the past year? 75% of it was most likely wrong anyway because they change most of these things as they go along.

Actually most of the info had NOT been confirmed for the 2015 Challenger, especially as far back as July 2012 when a lot of decisions had not even been finalized. Can you post some links?

I think you're missing the point of this thread - which, as is done every model year, is designed to accumulate and sort all of the upcoming model information into one central place, and to try and weed out all the mis-information and rumors - of which there is no shortage of. The thread is, obviously, a work on progress in which new information will be added along the way. I have not posted everything I know about the 2015 models, that will come in time as more info is confirmed.

Those features had nothing to do with the "Hellcat package", they were on the drawing board long before the Hellcat was finalized. They were designed for the 6.4, and will be modified accordingly for the 6.2. And, by a long shot, those two features would not even come close to being "most" of the Hellcat package.

Whats up with 6SPD4ME? Trying to be a wet blanket here?
It's a conformation of some of the info we've heard before plus new info. I myself am appreciative of the info and looking forward to more.

Thanks Resumespeed

Great information neighbor!

RS, excellent responses! Will the '15 LA have more, equal or less overall driver cabin space than the current model?

My wife said I know you are going to want this new 2015. She knows everything. LOL This sounds great. My master plan of having a R/T Classic as my daily driver and a SRT Hellcat as a toy may be coming to fruition in a few years. IT says the 8 speed will be available across the board. 8 speed plus over 600 horsepower. This thing will REALLY move. Also, if they are taking 71 design cues, can we expect the traditional Dodge cross hair grille this time around?
