Best Exterior Upgrades for the Dodge Challenger

20150-dodge-challenger

The Dodge Challenger has undergone many changes in its nearly 60-year history.

The three generations of the Challenger — as well as the first run of the Challenger that wasn’t considered the first official generation — have been separated by years and sometimes decades. Each time it was introduced again, it was reinvented to fit the times and the next stage of Dodge’s legacy.

The latest iteration of the Dodge Challenger may be the most exciting one yet. The 2015 Dodge Challenger includes an edition that is the most powerful mass-produced vehicle yet, and it blends elements of cutting-edge design with vintage style.

One look at the 2015 Dodge Challenger and you’ll feel like you’re getting a flashback. Yet something seems different. The new Challenger is sleeker. Stronger. Sexier.

While much attention has been paid to what’s going on under the hood of the new Challenger, there is just as much to appreciate about what’s new for the exterior. Here are some of the best exterior upgrades you can see in the 2015 Dodge Challenger:

New Grille

The latest Challenger has made the old new again with its vintage split grille. The long bar at the front of the car features two chrome accents between the headlights. The grill is split by a narrow strip of exterior, and it continues at the base of the car.

Designers took a page straight out of the early 70s’ Challenger design when it came up with the look for the new grille. The unique grille doesn’t look like anything else that’s on the road right now.

Two Hood Options

Also taking a cue from some classic Challenger models is the new hood.

There are two options: A larger hood with a “power bulge” and functional intake or a Shaker hood that provides greater air flow for cold air induction.

The Shaker hood is available for the R/T and Scat Pack versions. It includes a Mopar conical air filter and a Shaker hood badge. The power bulge hood is available on the SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat models.

Both hood options are perfect matches for the muscle car. They increase the car’s profile to make it look stronger and more intimidating. Combined with the split grille, the hoods almost give the car a face — one that’s snarling and aggressive.

Headlights and Tail Lights

The headlights on the 2015 Dodge Challenger are small and round, yet powerful. The top edge is lined by the overhang of the hood, enhancing the appearance of a face with a furrowed brow.

The quad headlights are projectors that are surrounded by LED halos. Projector fog lamps are also available. All together, the headlights can light a path in any weather conditions or terrain, ensuring that the Challenger can cut any path.

The tail lights are nestled in a black bar that echoes the split grille at the front. The tail lights are styled as one long red bar, but they are split in the middle. The LED lighting ensures that the tail lights are powerful like the headlights, and everyone on the road will see you leaving them in your dust.

Wheels

Multiple wheel options are available for the 2015 Dodge Challenger. The different options can enhance the performance of the car or help you create the look you want to make the vehicle your own.

Dodge has 36 options for wheels listed on its site, and they range in size from 18 inches to 20 inches. Finishes include polished satin, polished aluminum, forged aluminum, black forged aluminum, hyper black forged aluminum, matte black forged aluminum, brass monkey forged aluminum, satin carbon aluminum, and more.

Wheel designs include pockets, spokes, and more. You can choose from a wide variety of combinations to create different looks and best complement the exterior design. The wheels look just as good as the rest of the exterior, and the total package is unstoppable.

Paint and Stripes

The new Dodge Challenger comes in a variety of colors. Exterior color options include billet silver metallic, sublime green, B5 blue, Tor red, pitch black, bright white, granite crystal, phantom black, ivory pearl, jazz blue and redline red. The Dodge website includes an interactive tool that allows you to see exactly what the 2015 Dodge Challenger looks like in each of these exterior colors.

Since the Dodge Challenger already looks like it could be right at home on a race course — if not a street race course — you can enhance those looks with a racing stripe. The stripe runs the length of the body alone both sides, and it is available on the SXT and SXT Plus models.

Between the choice of paint color, stripe and wheel design, you can customize the look of your car and make it appear like a real drag racer.

At first glance, the 2015 Dodge Challenger looks like a vision of the past. Yet upon closer inspection, it is a strong and powerful car whose outside matches its inside. Everything about it screams muscle. You look at it, and you can almost hear it roaring down the road.

The interior matches the exterior, blending modern technology with retro-inspired design. You’ll have a comfortable seat while soaring down the road, and you’ll enjoy knowing that you are turning the neighbor’s heads.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger has made a huge splash, and it is already cleaning up in sales. In fact, the Hellcat version of the Challenger has received so many orders that Dodge has had to halt sales to ensure that it can fill them all.
