The 2015 Dodge Challenger is coming, with a refreshed or new exterior and interior—and, possibly, a Super Bee edition. The first teaser images for the car and its Charger companion have hit the web ahead of its 2014 New York Auto Show debut.
The images reveal the nose of the Charger (above) and the instrument panel (below)--which will be shared with the 2015 Dodge Challenger, also coming to New York--primarily the tachometer, and while it’s a sporty modern-retro gauge of goodness, there’s an LCD screen in the center that shows a revved-up bee on wheels. And the history of bees and Dodges is an interesting one.
In the 1970s, Dodge built several models with the Super Bee name, from the Coronet to the (then two-door) Charger. Offered as a low-priced performance version of the cars it was based on, the Super Bee wasn’t as successful as some competitive brands, but it still holds a special place in the hearts of many Mopar muscle car fans. Could a new Super Bee be on its way? Quite possibly.
Alternatively, a similar logo has been used for the recent Scat Pack editions. The Super Bee also wore Scat Pack badges in the 1970s, the Super Bee name and logo being based on the original Scat Pack mascot--so it could merely be an indicator of that special add-on set of features.
An even hotter SRT version of the car, possibly to be named "Hellcat," is also expected to join the 2015 Challenger lineup.
Dodge hasn’t released any more detail on what to expect of the 2015 Challenger just yet, but we’ll have the full details, including live photos, fresh from the car’s debut next week in New York.
