Character and pedigree are two extremely significant ingredients that have been part of the Dodge Challenger history. This motoring heritage has been the inspiration for the new T/A and T/A 392 models. They are updated variations of the Challenger that offer an original styling by way of the driver and passenger side Air-Catcher headlamps, Satin Black exterior graphics with T/ logos, and improved performance.

For the buyer, there is the incentive of getting a Challenger boasting a 5.7-litre HEMI V8, added to which as standard is a 2.75-inch electronically controlled active exhaust system. If you want that muscle-car identifying sound, this active exhaust system will produce it for you! Turning to the 2017 Dodge Challenger design; it’s available in a variety of new exterior paint colours, while inside, the signature Houndstooth cloth seats are supplied as standard on the following trim levels: SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker and R/T Scat Pack.

T/A and T/A 392 Features

The T/A model 2017 Challenger is equipped as standard with the naturally-aspirated Dodge 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that generates 375 horsepower, while the T/A 392 model with its 6.4-litre 392 HEMI pushes out 485 horsepower. Added features include wider 20 x 9-inch wheels on the Dodge Challenger T/A model and 20 x 9.5-inch wheels on the T/A 392 version. In addition, there are high-performance Brembo brakes fitted with 6-piston front callipers and 4-piston rear callipers.

The Challenger interior provides the driver with performance padded seats and a Dodge performance steering wheel that is equipped with die-cast paddle shifters. With the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Smartphone, there are connectivity platforms available for infotainment, as in all 2017 Dodge Challenger models

Extra muscle

The SRT model Dodge Challenger is already a part of the range, but with some enhancing and innovative design updates, it practically adopts the appearance of a new designer trim category. Among its new highlighting features are 20 x 9.5 inch 5-spoke Lightweight 5 Deep Aluminum Wheels badge enhancements, and for the SRT steering wheel logo, new red or white LED illumination.

Many drivers seeking the truly defined power and style of a muscle car will unerringly look towards a Challenger and could be even more attracted to the 2017 Dodge Challenger models. There are many and varied innovative design aspects presented in 2017 that warrant anticipation and even excitement about getting behind the wheel of one of these iconic legends of the road.
