If you feel like your Christmas list is missing one last thing, we have your answer: the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT. While it’s not making its official debut until early next year, we can assure you that it’ll make the perfect post-holiday gift to yourself. It’s also completely worth the wait, which realistically is only a few months anyway. You’ll want to have this car specifically for the winter because it’s the FIRST American muscle car that has All Wheel Drive, making snowy driving quite a lot more than usual. We promise you won’t have the winter blues when you’re behind the wheel of the Dodge Challenger GT.
The Challenger GT is offered exclusively with the 3.6-liter V-6 – that’s 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. The 8-speed automatic transmission gives the Challenger an EPA-estimated 18mpg city/27 mpg highway so don’t be afraid to be a little overzealous. The Challenger’s Sport mode is designed to hold gears longer in order to keep the revs higher. The Electronic Stability Control system has three modes, one of which is “full off” mode that’s intended for drifting in the snow. Obviously that’s something we’ll be doing 😉
Inside the Challenger, you’ll find a Super Track Pak button that enables Performances Pages. This will show up on your 8.4 inch touchscreen radio and will display all kinds of driving stats including reaction times, 0-60 mph times, G-forces, and lap times. The radio includes Apple Car Play and Android Auto as well as six Alpine speakers with a 276 watt amplifier. Put all of these features together and your driving experience will be unlike any other.
Worried about your comfort? Fear not. Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and 4-way power driver lumbar adjustment all work together to give you the most custom fit possible. Since the Challenger is geared up for the winter, you’ll also have a heated steering wheel for good measure. The perks just keep coming!
Starting at $34,490, the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT is not only affordable, but goes beyond the traditional realm of a muscle car. Once you’re in, there’s no going back. Keep an eye out in the new year for production updates and dealership arrivals! In the meantime, browse our other Challenger inventory and see what catches your eye.
