The shooters at KGP Photography recently got their first look into the cockpit of the ’15 SRT Challenger, providing a taste for the extensive, long-overdue changes destined for the retro-inspired musclecar.
Despite the thorough camouflage, the Challenger's interior will get a complete overhaul, with a new dash, switchgear, instrumentation and quality level. The Challenger finally gets the larger 8.4-in. Uconnect LCD screen, now framed in with new vertical air vents. An all-new center stack can be seen aft of the manual transmission on this prototype. A new steering wheel is boldly emblazoned with an SRT badge. The Challenger's gauge cluster gets a welcome dose of style, and clearly contains new instrumentation that appears to be a massive step forward from the simplistic design hobbling the current model.
The transmission tunnel shows handsome contrasting stitching effects—a clear sign that the current Challenger's cheap, plastic interior will finally be banished. With the Mustang's improved interior quality, these changes are a necessity if the Challenger is to remain competitive in the musclecar ranks.
Earlier Challenger prototypes had a minor bit of camouflage covering the front clip, with the existing grille and headlight setup visible behind the disguise. The new camouflage is much more extensive, with changes to the front fascia visible. These shots show new LED accents ringing around the Challenger's new headlights. The outer LED ring also includes amber turn signals, which were spotted, but could not be photographed.
As of now, this is the most complete look at the changes due for the ’15 Challenger.
