Earning the ALG Residual Value Award for the 3rd year in a row, receiving a 5-star overall safety rating by the NHTSA and being named one of Strategic Vision’s “Most Loved Cars in America” are just a few of the achievements made by the 2017 Dodge Charger.
Getting accolades is nothing new to the Charger that’s been on the road for over 50 years. But, there are several new features and design cues offered for the 2017 model, along with the 4th comeback of the popular Daytona model.
Welcome Back 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona!
The Dodge Charger Daytona made its debut in 1969 as a high-performance limited-edition vehicle. It was so popular that it got remade for the 1975-1977, 2006-2009 and 2013 model years.
It returns with a vengeance since both the 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona and the more powerful 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona 392 are offered. These models utilize a 370-hp 5.7L HEMI V8 and 485-hp 6.4L HEMI V8 under the hood, respectively.
Some of the heritage-inspired yet modern features offered include:
- Unique Satin Black design cues on the exterior hood, roof, deck-lid graphics & spoiler
- Wider 20″ wheels with high-performance Goodyear (Daytona) or Pirelli (Daytona 392) tires
- Performance brake pads (Daytona) or ultra-high performance Brembo brake system with six-piston front and four-piston rear brake calipers (Daytona 392)
- “Daytona” embroidered performance bolstered seats & Dodge performance steering wheel with die-cast paddle shifters
Next-Gen Uconnect Multimedia System
One option that people are loving in select 2017 Dodge Charger models at our Union County, New Jersey dealership location is the 4th-generation Uconnect 8.4 system. That’s because the 8.4” touchscreen makes it easier than ever to control with multi-touch gestures including tap, swipe & pinch capabilities.
Smartphone integration has also become simpler through the use of Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility. That means you can access your iPhone’s Apple Maps, Messages & Music via Siri Voice control and your Android’s Google voice search, Google Maps and Google Play Music via steering wheel-mounted controls.
This Uconnect 8.4 system also provides quicker startup time, added processing power, enhanced imagery, higher resolution and sharper graphics than its predecessor.
Other Updates Added
There are several other enhancements made to the new Charger lineup. For starters, Green Go, Yellow Jacket, Destroyer Grey & Octane Red exterior paint color choices are now available. A more muscular sound comes from the Active Exhaust that’s standard on all HEMI V8 models.
For a sportier appearance, the Charger SXT AWD’s Rallye Package now includes 19” wheels with a Hyper Black finish. Opting for the SXT and R/T trims let you get smooth & cozy Signature Houndstooth cloth seats.
The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat gets an even more distinct look thanks to updated exterior & interior badging, a Low Gloss Black-finished 20″ 5-spoke “Lightweight 5Deep Aluminum” wheel design & a Red LED SRT logo steering wheel illumination. The SRT 392 receives White LED SRT logo steering wheel illumination and Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path detection for a more fun & safe drive.
