The 2015 Dodge Viper pricing has been released, and the pricing is way lower than before…perhaps to compete with the new Corvette Z06? At least that’s what GM Authority is proposing. Either way, the new 2015 Viper is competitively priced with the original Viper that rolled out in 1992 (when adjusted for inflation), despite being much more powerful and refined.
The 2015 Dodge Viper will have an MSRP of $84,995, which is $15,000 less than the 2014 model. If I owned a 2014 Viper, I’d be a little upset I didn’t wait another year for a better car at a cheaper price, but nevertheless, it will definitely be a Corvette competitor at that price.
“The Gen 1 Viper had 400 horsepower. It didn’t have air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, traction control or stability control. It didn’t even have real windows. It was the purest, rawest and most visceral American performance car of its time,” commented Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands. “The Gen 5 Viper maintains the purity of the original car, with its seductive design, perfect weight balance and all-aluminum V10 with an additional 245 horsepower. But the rawness has been tamed with state-of-the-art five-mode ESC, two-mode suspension, ABS, traction control, launch control and a lightweight structure comprised of carbon fiber, magnesium and aluminum. Despite the Gen 5’s massive leap forward in technology and performance, we’re pulling its starting price back to the equivalent of the original Gen 1 car.”
