What’s in the 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger?

by David Zatz on

As the effective image leaders for Dodge going forward — and the sole surviving cars going into 2017 — the Dodge Charger and Challenger have both gotten updates.

2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

The 2017 Charger Hellcat and Challenger SRT Hellcat cars have new 20 x 9.5 inch “lightweight 5Deep aluminum” wheels with five spokes, finished in low-gloss black; beyond style, they save four pounds per wheel.

There is also new interior and exterior badging, and an LED-lit steering wheel (red on Hellcat, white on 392) for both cars.

Moving to the rest of the group, the Challenger SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker, and R/T Scat Pack, and the Charger SE, SXT, R/T, and R/T Scat Pack, all have standard hound’s tooth cloth seats. In addition, the 2017 Dodge Charger has optional 19-inch black wheels with the AWD versions of Charger SE and SXT when the Rallye package is ordered.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A and Dodge Charger Daytona have already been shown; they take some aspects of more expensive Dodge with hotter engines, and integrate them along with unique touches. With suspension upgrades and cold air intakes, they add performance, too, whether buyers get the 5.7 or 6.4 Hemi. See our existing page
