2017 Challenger: What’s new?

by David Zatz on

The next major revision of the Dodge Challenger will be in model-year 2018, but Dodge isn’t standing still with their soon-to-be flagship car.

TorqueNews reported on an unconfirmed report from on what we can expect to see and, in essence, it’s changes to paints — or to the names of paints — and an updated stereo which will finally fulfill FCA’s promise of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.


It appears that the powertrain options are unchanged; there is no word on whether the Pentastar will be upgraded, but changes are that will wait for 2018. Likewise, all the current model names keep on going, including the Shakers.

New colors are said to be Ceramic Grey, Green Go, Velvet Red Pearl Coat and Yellow Jacket.  TorqueNews suggested that “Ceramic Grey and Velvet Red will be normal production colors while Green Go and Yellow Jacket will likely be limited edition “high impact” colors, like Go ManGo and Plum Crazy from the 2016 model year.” Color choices often change at the last minute, and sometimes the names change with the colors being almost exactly the same.
