2017 Dodge Charger Review
Posted on July 31, 2020
Nothing is as empowering as getting behind the wheel of an actual muscle car. You feel like you can take on the whole world, and look good doing it! That's why we are so excited to be offering the 2017 Dodge Charger at Caledon Chrysler. Available in eight trim levels, rear and all-wheel drive, and thirteen exterior colours, we firmly believe that the full-sized 2017 Dodge Charger is an instant classic. Let's take a closer look at what you can expect from this powerful sports car.
The 2017 Dodge Charger brings a ton of performance to the table. Depending on the trim level there are a few different, but equally impressive engines to chose from. Most of these muscle cars come with a standard 3.6-liter V-6 with sequential MPI that puts out 292 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and 260 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. As you step up, you can also get a 5.7-liter V-8 that produces 370 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 395 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm or a 6.4-liter V-8 that gives you 485 horsepower at 6,100 rpm and 475 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm. If you demand the most power available, you'll love the 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine available on the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, that kicks out an amazing 707 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 650 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. All trim levels come with a standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and variable valve timing that can help you get up to 7.8 L/100 km highway and 12.4 L/100 km city.* To control all this power, the 2017 Dodge Charger gives drivers a five-link rear suspension as well as available Bilstein high-performance shock absorbers, exclusive Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping suspension, and Best-in-Class AWD technology.
When it comes to safety, the 2017 Dodge Charger offers drivers and passengers over 70 standard and available safety and security features. Built with high-strength steel, ample roof strength, and side-guard door beams, you are surrounded by strength. You are also protected on the interior by standard advanced multistage front airbags, supplemental full-length side-curtain airbags, front seat-mounted side pelvic-thoracic airbags, and a driver-side knee blocker airbag. Depending on which trim you pick, you can also add the available ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path Detection.
Comfort + Tech
One of the best parts of the 2017 Dodge Charger is its ability to combine the excitement of a classic muscle car, with the most advanced technology available today. The list of hi-tech features is long, but some of our favourites include the seven-inch customizable full-colour in-cluster display, Uconnect Multimedia Centres, and the available 10-speaker BeatsAudio Sound System with a trunk-mounted subwoofer and 552-Watt Amplifier. Because you also demand comfort, Caledon Chrysler is excited about the available heated and ventilated front seats, Sepia premium Laguna full-leather seats with perforated inserts and embossed with the model name, and Best-in-Class rear seat legroom.
