Dodge Special Editions for Charger and Challenger Revealed

Dodge has some big plans in store for two of its signature vehicles.

In mid-August, ahead of the legendary Woodward Dream Cruise, Dodge paid homage to the vintage muscle cars of past decades by unveiling two new Dodge special editions for the Charger and Challenger. Referred to as the 2017 Charger Daytona and the 2017 Challenger T/A, the two new cars are inspired by the race cars of the 1970s and designed to overlook modern amenities in favor of focusing on one important detail: delivering unparalleled performance.

FCA’s American head of passenger cars, Tim Kuniskis, weighed in on the concept behind these new Dodge special editions at their debut, “What these cars are not: They are not autonomous. They are not hybrids. They do not get 50 miles per gallon. And you cannot summon them with your smart phone. But what they can do is maybe remind you of why you fell in love with driving in the first place.”

You will be able to place orders for the Dodge special editions of the Charger and Challenger sometime this month for just under $40,000. Both of them offer customers the choice between a 485-horsepower Hemi V8 or a 375-hp Hemi V8 with an electronic performance exhaust system.

The Woodward Dream Cruise has been an important annual event for Dodge for several years now, and this year they did not disappoint.
