2017 Dodge Challenger

The Dodge Challenger has been a classic for years, first introduced in the 1950s. Generations of Challengers have been produced since then, with the 2017 model honoring that impressive heritage. The 2017 Dodge Challenger is an impressive way to get that classic muscle car look, feel, and performance without going through the lengthy and expensive restoration process.

The 2017 version of the Challenger definitely pays tribute to the Challengers of old. The general shape is still the same as the version from the 70’s, but the boxy edges have been smoothed out to make it just a little more modern while still holding on to its classic charm. Features like the classic circular spot light style headlights remain while the taillights have a modern feel with full-width split tail lamps that fully encircle the reverse lights. Most importantly, the 2017 Challenger has the athletic, powerful body of a good, old-fashioned muscle car.

The Challenger is totally customizable. If you want a high-flow cold air induction with a functional hood scoop, then you might pick the 392 HEMI Scat Pack with a Shaker hood. If you like the split hood scoop, there’s a trim for that. If power and speed are what are important to you, then the Demon will be your choice because it has the fastest quarter mile and most horsepower of any production car. In short, whatever you’re looking for in a modern day classic, there’s a Challenger for you.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger is just as stylish on the inside as it is on the outside. From the sleek dashboard display to the two toned seats, the Challenger shows its racing heart throughout its design. The ventilated seats will also help you keep cool whether its just a hot day or if you’re trying to beat that quarter mile record. And if you want to be more in control, you can switch to a manual shift mode, which gives you the shifting power without the hassle of a clutch. Plus, Dodge Performance Pages gives you control of everything from steering response to shift time to match your Challenger to your driving style-or your racetrack.

Challenger Technology

The Challenger may be a classic muscle car, but Dodge has updated it to fit in to the 21st century. The UConnect system allows for smart phone connectivity and voice command for things like hands free calling, music streaming, and more. The Challenger also comes with an optional touch screen from which you can run your Performance Pages, integrated navigation system, and even get real time traffic and weather updates. When you’re not trying to be the first off the line, you can take your foot off the gas because of the Challenger’s adaptive cruise control. Adaptive cruise control allows you to maintain speed but also keep pace with traffic by slowing down when necessary and then getting back up to your selected speed.
