The muscle car is the first in Chrysler history to have two key fobs in red and black, mainly the first one to have the full 707HP capability while the black fob is just limited with 500HP.

It’s also redesigned and totally re-engineered to be the most true-to-form muscle coupe on the market, inside-out it features new technologies such as the new TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-new interior inspired by the classic 1971 Challenger.

Now if you’re getting too excited to try both key fobs, the 2015 Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRTs are built at the Brampton, Ontario, Assembly Plant and will be coming in 3Q 2014.
