Auburn Hills, Mich. October 29, 2014 The 2015 Dodge Charger competes in the standard full-size car market in the United States, but stands alone in a class by itself as America’s only four-door fastback-styled muscle car on the market.

Charger buyers are on average 17 years younger than those of the competition within the segment, with more than half identifying themselves as Millennials or Generation Xers, many with young families.
 
“The Dodge Charger is designed to appeal to buyers who need the practicality of a full-size sedan but don’t want to give up Dodge attitude and sporty driving performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO — Dodge Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “The new 2015 Dodge Charger delivers with an entirely new exterior design, state-of-the-art and fuel-efficient TorqueFlite eight-speed transmissions, plus all-new aggressively styled and track-proven models such as the R/T Scat Pack model with 485 best-in-class naturally aspirated horsepower, and the Charger SRT Hellcat – the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world.”
 
The Charger’s appeal is attracting a high number of conquest buyers, helping drive a 62 percent increase in sales since 2009 – more than double the growth of the standard full-size car segment (+30 percent). In 2013, Charger posted its best sales year since 2007, further fueling a 3.2 percentage point gain in market share since 2009.
