Got way too much blood, sweat, and tears in my '13 RT to consider a trade but those taillights are bada$$ on the new ones.
I hope they'll work.

I seriously doubt they will work. The Can-Bus system is not that easy to work with. Nothing is ever plug and play on these cars. Trust me! I know! I installed a set of Viper seats in my car and it was not all that easy to get the seatbelt light to go off.

Yeah, from what I'm hearing the SXT is LED as well, the main hang up IMO.
Good looking ride btw.

I had a chance to ask Loren Trotter, the Dodge Challenger Brand Manager, this EXACT question, while looking at a 2015 on July 9th in Portland, Oregon. The shape of the black surround is different, and the 2015 light assy won't fit inside ours, nor will the black surround of the 2015 fit in ours. No chance to mix and match to make it fit. That and the LED system with the canbus, as noted above, makes this a no go.
Meanwhile, enjoy your fine car, I bet it looks great the way it is, and I for one prefer my 2013 tail light look, and the sequentials make it even brighter, cooler and safer. The LEDS on the 2015 look kinda wimpy when the brakes are applied. Only the center strip lights up, about a 3/4 inch wide band. Here's a shaky picture taken while following one during the day, in the rain:
