After months of halted production as Dodge tried to control Viper inventory levels, the American automaker has announced an expansion for the sports car’s lineup.
In September, Dodge slashed the 2015 Viper base price to $86,990 including destination, but excluding the gas guzzler tax. Building off the repositioned Viper, Dodge announced today that it will expand the lineup to include two more trim levels, bringing the total to four as part of a 2015.5 model year update.The Viper GTS trim level is returning along with an updated version of the TA 2.0 Special Edition alongside the existing SRT and GT models. The 2015.5 Dodge Viper TA 2.0 Special Edition will be priced from $103,990 and features a plethora of accessories and modifications to make the Viper even more track-ready. Upgrades include an aerodynamics package, competition rear spoiler and front lower dive planes along with two-piece Brembo rotors and a staggered set of 18/19-inch matte black wheels.
The new Viper GTS model will be priced from $109,990 and adds Laguna leather seats, Alcantara headliner and a Harmon Kardon 18-speaker audio system. In addition, buyers will also get Nappa leather IP, console and doors, 18/19-inch polished aluminum Venom wheels, power six-way driver and passenger seats and unique GTS badges.
The 2015 Dodge Viper is powered by an 8.4-liter V10 engine mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission with 645 hp and delivering up to 20 mpg on the highway.
