Dodge has taken inspiration from the original 1971 model year Challenger and subtly reworked both ends while leaving the main body panels untouched.
Up front there is a new split-grille, projector fog lights, angel-eye style LED daytime running lights and a larger bonnet power bulge.
The rear of Challenger gets new split LED taillights and gloss black trim and a subtly restyled rear valance.
The 71 theme carries through to the interior with a high-sill centre console and aluminium bezels on the 70s inspired main instruments.
An 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment system and 7-inch customizable display that sits between the speedometer and tachometer is available.
Safety has been boosted with the fitment of a forward collision warning system, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection with stability control being standard across all models.
Drivetrain options have been bolstered with the addition of an eight-speed automatic TorqueFlight transmission that is now standard on the V6 SXT and available as an option across the range.
An all new Scat Pack is available with a 360kW 392 HEMI (6.4 litre) and a choice of either the eight-speed TorqueFlight with paddle shifters or a six-speed manual.
Wearing 20-inch alloys and a set of Brembo brakes, the Scat Pack is expected to be able to hit 100km/h in well under five seconds.
"For 2015, we're going deep with the remake of the Dodge Challenger," Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis said.
"The iconic 1971 Challenger inspired the design of this modern day muscle car, but the recreation of this classic styling extends well beneath the surface of the sheet metal."
"We have completely re-engineered the Challenger with a new best-in-class 360kW 392 HEMI and TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission powertrain, an upgraded suspension, new class-exclusive technologies and a completely new interior."
The R/T and R/T Plus models are fitted with a 5.7 litre HEMI that produces up to 280kW (277kW when fitted with the automatice) and can be ordered with either the eight-speed TorqueFlight automatic or a six-speed Tremec manual.
All V8 models can be optioned with a functional bonnet shaker.
Challenger SXT and SXT Plus use Chrysler’s 227kW Pentastar V6 and come with the eight-speed TorqueFlight as standard.
A Super Track Pack is now available across the entire Challenger model range. It adds 0.5 inch lowered suspension, Bilstein dampers and upgraded brakes.
The Super Track Pack includes a shortcut button to the new Dodge Performance Pages embedded in the 8.4-inch touch screen radio that provides visible performance information, such as programmable shift light indicator, reaction time, 0-100 times, G-force indicator and lap times in the 7-inch TFT customizable cluster display.
