2017 Dodge Challenger at Pearson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for Richmond, VA

The 2017 Dodge Challenger is modern and classic in a ferocious package. It's the world's most powerful muscle car, boasting 707 horsepower in its top model and unmatched acceleration. After hearing that, it's hard to imagine that the Challenger is also a practical option, but Dodge has done a fantastic job of balancing comfort and fuel economy with pure raw speed. New for this year is an active exhaust on all HEMI V8 engine option Challengers. Additionally, there are three all-new models-the Challenger T/A, T/A Plus, and T/A 392. The Challenger SRT Hellcat now features new 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum five-spoke wheels, chopping 16 pounds off the total weight of the coupe and further improving dynamics. LED illuminated badging now resides in the steering wheels of the SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat, in white and red, respectively. Four new paint colors and signature Houndstooth cloth seats are now standard for the SXT, R/T, R/T Shaker, and R/T Scat Pack trims.
