The 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A builds on this tradition with three trim-levels, the T/A, T/A Plus, and the T/A 392. No matter which you choose, you are getting one of the coolest looking cars of all-time. From the stylish hood with a new center-mounted scoop to the satin black roof, trunk lid, rear wing, and stripes, once you see the 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A it will hard to forget. When you look under the hood, you'll find either a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that produces 375 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque or a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that puts out 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. On top of all the looks and performance, the 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A will be packed with available features like Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes, Uconnect 8.4 system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integrations, and Dodge Performance leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilt-and-telescoping column.<
