Both the  Dodge Charger Daytona and the Dodge Challenger T/A  made a splash at the 2016 Woodward Dream Cruise. Ordering opened soon after, on Thursday, October 13, and sources have told us that production has now started, as well.

The company had said that early buyers can expect to get their car  before the end of the calendar year, which remains true.

The Dodge Challenger T/A hasn’t been offered since its  first year, way back in 1970 , despite brochures for the 1971 model (that never made production).

The 2017 is sold in the T/A, T/A Plus, and T/A 392 forms, with the 5.7 Hemi and 392 Hemi engines. It has dual “air catcher” headlights, a stain black SRT 392 style hood, a cold air intake kit and hood scoop, black 20-inch wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, hood pins, satin black fuel door and spoiler, T/A stripes, a big active exhaust system, and the Super Track Pak — with a starting list price of $38,385, including destination.

The Challenger T/A 392 is based on the Challenger Scat Pack with the 392 Hemi, adding many of the same features as the T/A and T/A Plus, with massive Brembo brakes, front Bilstein suspension setup,  lightweight wheels wrapped in the Hellcat’s Pirelli tires, and other additions; with the manual transmission, it lists for $45,090.
