The 2014 New York Auto Show will be a big one for Dodge, as the brand has announced that refreshed versions of the 2015 Challenger and 2015 Charger will debut at the show. This is a particularly big deal for the two-door Challenger which, visually, has remained unchanged since is burst back onto the scene in 2008 and helped reignite the muscle car wars.

As a sort of hint, this announcement was accompanied by the picture you see above – the Super Bee logo in the Challenger’s new instrument cluster. According to Dodge, the New York debut of a new “powertrain combination” – possibly with the high-output Hellcat V8 – will leave enthusiasts “abuzz.”

As for the Charger, Dodge is promising a full redesign that should be a significant departure from the blunt, angry looks of the current model. At this point, there’s no indication that the Challenger’s new powertrain could be fitted to the Charger, although considering how mechanically similar these two vehicles have been, it doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility.

Whatever Dodge brings out in NYC, we can promise that we’ll be on hand to bring you all the details. For those that can’t possibly wait for our report from the Javits Center, though, there will be a livestream of the Charger/Challenger press conference available on Dodge’s consumer website. Scroll down for the official press blast.
