The 2017 Dodge Charger is somewhat shaped like a Coca-Cola bottle, harkening back to its '60s roots. It has a short front with an overhanging rear floating on large wheels.
The 2017 model has had every part of its exterior redesigned except for the roof and rear doors. This makes it appear more compact and aggressive despite maintaining the same length as the last generation model.
From the side, the Charger has been largely the same for decades. It still maintains its swollen rear-end fenders, hard-trimmed roof pillars, and its signature high beltline. The rear flanks are smooth and wrap majestically around to the large LED taillights.
The Dodge Charger has a low nose with a black grille and headlamps that scream futurism. The Charger models do have different distinct features that help you to distinguish between them. The R/T models are perhaps the perfect balance between restraint and fun.
The 'LED racetrack' rear lights have been an integral part of this model since the 1960s. The exhaust pipes are also nicely assimilated into the rear bumper.
The interior design of this model is comparable with other Dodge models in a number of ways such as its subtle surfacing and excellent integrated tech features.
The 2017 Dodge Charger can be quite affordable or reassuringly expensive given the wide range of trim levels and optional packages from which to choose. You can go from the basic V-6 engine to the top of the line Charger SRT Hellcat, depending on what you want from your Charger when you put pedal to metal.
The SE and SXT models are powered by a 3.6L V-6 engine that produces 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy rating for this engine is 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The Rallye group can be added to the SXT, which comes with an altered exhaust, improved software, and a cold air intake. These modifications increase the engine performance to 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque.
The V-6-engined Charger is available either as a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. On the other hand, the V-8 engine options are only available as a rear-wheel drive. All Chargers are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
There are no less than three V-8 engine options. The R/T model uses a 5.7L Hemi V-8 that produces 370 hp and 395 lb-ft of torque. It consumes less gas than expected thanks to its automatic cylinder deactivation.
The SRT 392 and R/T Scat Pack models use a 6.4L, V-8 engine that produces 485 horsepower. This engine is much superior to the 5.7L Hemi. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 4.5 seconds.
The Charger SRT Hellcat is the ultimate. It is powered by a 6.2L V-8 engine that produces 707 horsepower. This is the same engine used by the Challenger SRT Hellcat. The Charger SRT Hellcat has a quicker acceleration than the Challenger, getting to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. It has a top speed of 204 mph.
The SRT uses big Brembo brakes that have 6-piston calipers in front. These are connected to an adaptive damping system to give the driver more control on the road. The 2017 Dodge Charger has a tight suspension and balanced control.
The cabin of the Charger has a broad appeal due to the design of the dashboard. The T-handle shifter is aesthetic and well designed. The 8.4-inch display interface has a distinct layout and responds quickly.
The shoulder room of this model is excellent and there is more room in the front seat than you'd expect from a performance car. The appeal of the interior is enhanced by the mix of leather and suede upholstery. The amount of space offered by the 2017 Dodge Charger is second to no other performance oriented car out there today.
The 2017 Dodge Charger has as standard safety features such as driver knee airbags, full side curtain airbags, and front-seat head restraints. The R/T Scat Pack model adds a rearview camera and rearview park assist. The SRT 392 and Hellcat have as standard a rear cross traffic alert. Also standard for the Hellcat is a blind-spot monitoring system.
The Technology Group package option adds safety features such as a lane departure warning system, a forward collision alert system with automatic low-speed emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
The Charger got a five-star overall rating in the crash tests, with 5 stars in rollover safety and protection for side impacts.
