All-new 2015 Dodge Challenger earns five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA

The all-new 2015 Dodge Challenger has earned a five-star overall safety rating from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Five stars is the highest possible safety rating given by NHTSA.

"The new Dodge Challenger coupe further demonstrates our
commitment to broaden the proliferation of advanced safety technologies, such as driver-assist features," said Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice-President - Vehicle Safety and Regulatory, FCA-North America.

In its assessment of the new Challenger, NHTSA notes the availability of Forward Collision Warning (FCW), which features forward-facing sensors programmed to detect the potential for certain types of frontal collisions. If detected, the driver is alerted with visual and audible warnings.

The 2015 Dodge Challenger is the only car in its segment with such capability.

FCW is among more than 70 available safety and security features on the 2015 Dodge Challenger. Others include Blind-Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Path Detection, which was pioneered by FCA US LLC.

Among the individual crash-tests in which the Challenger scored five stars were front- and side-impacts.
