Can you please discuss the powertrains on this vehicle?

The SRT Hellcat has a supercharged 6.2L HEMI V8 engine with 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, which is an incredible amount of power! Charger SRT trims have a tri-mode Bilstein adaptive damping suspension with Track, Auto, and Sport modes.The SXT and SE models utilize a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine (with VVT) that manufactures a hefty 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and allow all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission are both standard on all 2017 Charger grades. In Edmunds brake testing, a full stop was scored by an R/T Scat Pack trim coming down from 60 mph in 111 feet. That same model was found in testing to go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds, which is an excellent score. The SRT Hellcat model attained 103 feet on the identical brake test. The R/T Scat Pack and both 392 models incorporate a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with VVT that generates 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with VVT brings in 370 horsepower and incredible 395 lb-ft of torque on both R/T and Daytona models.

How are the essential feature sets within each model?

The 2017 Dodge Charger rolls up with eight core models: the SE, SRT 392, SXT, Daytona, Daytona 392, SRT Hellcat, R/T, and the R/T Scat Pack. The trunk is a usable 16.5 cubic feet and some standard accommodations on the SE model are 17" alloy wheels, Bluetooth, front/rear USB ports, keyless entry/ignition, a 6-speaker a media player audio system (+aux audio port), and a 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen. The 5" Uconnect screen helps reduce dashboard clutter, and some prefer it, although there is an 8.4" version that others prefer instead. The SXT installs 18-inch wheels, an additional cockpit USB port, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming mirror, heated mirrors, an 8.4" touchscreen that use smartphone-compatible Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and LED foglamps. The R/T Scat Pack values items such as rear parking sensors, a high-performance suspension, performance brakes, a rearview camera, and power 8-way front seats. The R/T model's choices are nearer to the SXT trim but also employs 20" wheels, transmission paddle shifters, powerful brakes, and a sport-tuned suspension. Take a breath, because there's more: the Daytona trim has a specifically-tuned performance suspension, forged alloy wheels, and a couple of the Premium Group's deluxe items. The Daytona 392 gets some of the R/T Scat Pack and Daytona's features and correlates its brakes to match the strong engine too. The SRT 392 allows access to the Technology Group, has a steering wheel with a flat-bottom, an adaptive suspension, blind-spot monitoring & rear cross-traffic alert systems, completely leather upholstery, forged alloy wheels, xenon headlamps, and navigation via Uconnect. A Harman Kardon 19-speaker audio system fits either the SRT 392 or the SRT Hellcat as an available selection. The SRT Hellcat adds to the SRT 392 amenities with more suspension tuning (as well as responsive steering settings), and of course, a supercharged V8 engine!

What's new in the 2017 Dodge Charger?

The Charger is obtainable with an unbelievable 5.7L engine and the Daytona 392 model is standard with an incredible 6.4L V8 engine. The Daytona model also sees a few inner trim and outer body panel changes, wider tires, and high-strength brakes. On 2017 Chargers with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, there is a new 2.75" electronically controlled active exhaust system that reps the appropriate sonic blast to any audience in proximity. The 'Daytona' model name rises again into the Charger roster for 2017. There are forged wheels with a lowered weight on the SRT Hellcat model. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is now compatible in 2017 with the purchasable re-vamped fourth-generation 8.4 Uconnect system. That system's touchscreen has a more rapid fire-up time, agile app navigation (via pinch, tap & swipe), and noticeable high definition in the graphics. Exterior colors are added to the usual ones as well, like Green Go, Yellow Jacket, Destroyer Grey and Octane Red.

Final Thoughts on the 2017 Dodge Charger

A lot can be said for the important category of safety within the 2017 Charger, and drivers should consider this for their own well-being as well of those who may borrow or use this fine driving machine! The 2017 Dodge Charger, whether AWD or FWD, has earned NHTSA's highest rating of 5 stars overall, and it is the 10th time the Charger has done so! Two of the features that help the Charger do this are a rearview camera and rear parking sensors as options on most trims (if not coming in as standard). Also of interest, wider, 20 x 9" and 20 x 9.5" wheels with high-performance Goodyear & Pirelli tires make handling and grip on the 5.7-L and 392 HEMI-powered Dodge Charger Daytona models measurably stronger. Other standard safety features for the Charger are stability and traction control, the 'Sentry Key' engine immobilizer, steering wheel mounted sound controls, ABS, 'Tip Start', DRLs, front seat side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, and a tire-pressure alert system. Look into as well the purchasable adaptive cruise control (+ forward collision warning/mitigation system with auto-braking), a lane departure warning and intervention system, and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert. Both the forward collision warning and automatic braking systems saw a 'Superior' rating in government testing.
