Dodge keeps pumping out modern muscle cars. Add to the list the 2017 Charger Daytona and Challenger T/A. The latest two reveals line up with the historic Woodward Dream Cruise, which is an unsurprising and completely appropriate venue.
Dodge is of course paying tribute to the Challenger T/A’s SCCA roots, offering three different versions of the car: Challenger T/A, Challenger T/A Plus and Challenger T/A 392. The base version is based on the current Challenger R/T, adding features like Air Catcher headlights, a NACA hood duct and a modified version of the SRT Hellcat air box. The T/A badges are LED-illuminated, tacking on about 30 extra horsepower. More modifications are available through the Super Track Pack. With the T/A Plus, the car gains lots of electronic gizmos and interior luxuries, and a Super Track Pack is available. The 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 is powered by the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8, hence the name. It pushes out a healthy 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona uses the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, which cranks out 375 horsepower. It’s based on the Charger R/T. Among the additional standard equipment is a Mopar cold-air induction system, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and the ability to turn ESC all the way off. You can also get the 392 for lots of rubber-shredding fun.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on the two new Dodges, you’re in luck. The Charger Daytona is open for orders in September, with the Challenger T/A following right behind it in October.
