New 2017 Dodge Challenger at Lynch Chrysler Jeep Dodge for Mukwonago, WI
The Dodge Challenger is very well-known as an iconic classic as well as a powerhouse of design and drivetrain capability, and 2017 continues this tradition. The 2017 model gains a short set of new updates, like Uconnect interfacing for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a new T/A model, and an active electronic control exhaust system on V8-rocking Challengers. Also, the GT model is the first two-door American muscle car with all-wheel drive! If you want to know more regarding the new 2017 Dodge Challenger just keep reading further!
Under the Challenger's Hood
This is probably the racy muscle-car that you have been dreaming about, but to make sure, here are the engine lineup details and related information! The Challenger in 2017 roars in standard with the 3.6-liter V6 engine, which manages to keep the ride smooth despite its robust engine outputs. It is fused to an 8-speed automatic transmission and will make 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The next available hood-monster is a 5.7-liter V8 engine that provides varying power ratings depending on the transmission it is buddied-up with. Those include a choice of an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual. With the automatic transmission, it will generate 372 horsepower and a whopping 400 lb-ft of torque, and the manual setup will manufacture 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Another option that will find you looking to the inside of the engine bay for some sort of supplemental engine to explain the power is the frame-shuddering 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat engine. I say this because it attains 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. This outrageous setup went 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in the mid-3 second range with an 8-speed automatic transmission (the TorqueFlite 8HP90)! Because of the tyrannosaurus-like magnitude of this, the SRT model also comes with Drive Modes that are pre-configured for Sport, Track and Default, plus throws in a Custom mode too. And in case you're thinking how to slow or stop this train, don't worry, Dodge also put in the T/A 392 and Challenger SRT models the biggest front brake package they ever made (US vehicles): 15.4-inch Brembo two-piece rotors with 6-piston calipers. Prepare to be undeniably pushed way back into your seat quite often with these models!
Design of Dodge Challenger
All Challenger trims are obtainable with a navigation system, a sunroof, individual feature options, and group packages. The main trim levels for the 2017 Challenger are the SXT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat (that's the one with a top speed of 199 mph, Dodge casually mentions). Many of these will also have a smattering of trim variants that will cater to certain points of interest in the segment, like the AWD coupe that the GT trim is, for example. The SXT features a strong array of standard features, like heated mirrors, 18-inch wheels, keyless entry/ignition, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The surprisingly spacious interior also has a 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, a USB port, and a 6-speaker audio system. The Challenger muscle-car exterior styling reaches back in time with its split grille, LED halo headlamps, striking power bulge hood, and LED tail lamp designs. On the inside, there is a nostalgic high-sill center console and a driver-focused instrument panel that is an option to acquire in your choice of13 outer colors! The all-new, 4th-gen 8.4 inch Uconnect system is optional for all 2017 Dodge Challenger models with a V8 engine and allows integration with smartphones.
