You Learn A Lot in 100 Years

by Admin on July 31, 2014

They say history repeats itself – that isn’t so. When it comes to legendary performance, Dodge has learned a thing or two and continually reinvents itself. Celebrating 100 years in the automotive industry, Dodge unveiled the 2015 Dodge Challenger at the New York Auto Show in 2014, and it is packed with legendary performance highlights designed around the driving enthusiast.

On hand to introduce the new muscle car in Dodge’s commercial are folks who have their fair share of wisdom.  Ethel Preston, born in 1907 knows a lot about life. Reginal Gooch, born in 1913, wants to tell the world what he’s learned. Ellis Bell, born in 1923, says to learn from your mistakes. Born in 1912, Connie Sawyer says live for now. Life is good because you make it good says Dorothy Titleman, born in 1914. Other characters throughout the commercial offer inspirational tidbits throughout; but when it comes down to it they have the same drive, which also drives Dodge: the drive to move forward, to push the limits, to grow and continually succeed against all odds, to be humble, to work hard, and to challenge what’s possible.


It really is amazing what you can learn in 100 years, and the 2015 Dodge Challenger proves that. Reminiscent of its heritage by taking design elements from 1971 and combining them with modern style, with features like a new split grille, a more pronounced hood, LED halo headlamps and LED tail lamps. Dodge also gives drivers the ability to customize their interior, with 14 available trim selections for the 1971-inspired high-sill center console and driver-focused instrument panel, from throwback Houndstooth cloth to Ruby Red and more. As well, it is lined with more than 70 safety features, and new technology upgrades including 8.4-inch touchscreen media center with Uconnect Access System, and Keyless Enter ‘n Go with push-button start.

The drive to challenge what’s possible is evident with the 2015 Dodge Challenger. It offers outstanding performance, with the incredible available 6.4L HEMI V8 engine which offers 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Plus it is equipped with a segment-first 8-speed automatic transmission. The R/T Scat Pack encompasses the 100 years of revolutionary Dodge engineering, offering the 6.4L HEMI engine with the choice of 6-speed manual or new TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, Brembo brakes and 20-inch aluminum wheels.

In 100 years, Dodge has evolved. After all, there’s a lot you can learn in 100 years. The 2015 Dodge Challenger is all that is Dodge: muscle, heart, innovation, and a legendary drive. Isn’t it time you experienced it?
