We perform a comprehensive analysis which includes the study of corrections to the muon magnetic moment, dilepton searches with LHC data, as well as direct and indirect dark matter detection constraints. We consider four different coupling structures, namely U(1)B−L, U(1)d−u, U(1)universal, and U110+5¯$$ \mathrm{U}{(1)}_{10+\overline{5}} $$, all motivated by compelling extensions to the standard model. We outline the viable and excluded regions of parameter space using a large set of probes. Our key findings are that (i) the combination of direct detection and collider constraints rule out dark matter particle masses lighter than ∼ 1 TeV, unless rather suppressed Z′-fermion couplings exist, and that (ii) for several of the models under consideration, collider constraints rule out Z′ masses up to ∼ 3 TeV. Lastly, we show that we can accommodate the recent Diboson excess reported by ATLAS collaboration within the U(1)d−u model.
