Dodge Challenger Earns 5 Stars for Safety
The Challenger has definitely had its share of news time this year. Beefy looks, muscle car power, and exhilarating performance are among the coupe’s best known qualities.
But a recent accomplishment for Dodge has the spotlight shining on the Challenger for a different reason. The 2015 model completed its NHTSA crash testing and earned the best possible overall score.
With a 5-star rating, the Challenger has proven itself to be as safe as a Toyota Camry, putting one more notch in its belt for excellent design and engineering.
Here’s a closer look at what makes the 2015 Challenger, which is now available at Dodge in Miami, such a safe pick.
Over 70 Available Safety and Security Features
Dodge definitely means business when it comes to protecting drivers and passengers. On the company’s official website, it says: “Safety and Security come first…second and third. That’s why the 2015 Challenger is built for protection just as much as it is for performance.”
With advanced technology like Forward Collision Warning, Electronic Stability Control, All-Speed Traction Control, and Hill Start Assist, the Challenger is one of the safest vehicles to ever hit the production line.
Several trim levels also come standard with a ParkView Rear Back-up Camera and a ParkSense Rear Park Assist System so drivers always know what’s going on behind them.
The cabin is equipped with numerous airbags, including rear and side curtain, as well as front seat-mounted side airbags.
Active front head restraints are also in place to prevent abrupt motion of the head and neck because of an accident. The restraints have been proven to reduce the risk of injury.
There are an assortment of systems always at work in the 2015 Challenger to prevent accidents and minimize risk and damage when they happen.
But another important tool that Dodge has used to enhance safety is the car itself. Its frame is constructed with high-strength steel so it can withstand intense impact.
It has also been specially designed with front and rear crumple zones that absorb the brunt of the force from a collision.
With all of the innovation and thoughtful design that went into the making of the Challenger, it’s no wonder it received such high safety marks from the NHTSA.
