The Comeback: Dodge Charger 2017
Is there an even more well-known muscle car aside from the Dodge Charger? The Dodge Charger has earned a label as on of the coolest cars ever driven by speed racers and celebrities all around the globe, and is even used in huge hit movies such as Death Proof, The Fast & The Furious, Bullitt, and The Dukes of Hazard.
Undeniably, when people hear of the Charger, all they can imagine is the 1969 model. But will the muscle car still have the same unique quality and features after half a century from its first appearance? Dodge is actually planning to reinvent the Charger to its 2017 model with the right ratio of classical and modern taste. The question now is, will it be good enough?
Execution is probably the most important part of a muscle car especially something as famous as the Charger. Good news is that the 2017 model is based on this. There is a wide variety of engines to choose from the new Charger, but performance wise you must check out the Hellcat. The acceleration from 0-60mph is easily done in 4.1 seconds because of its supercharged 6.2 liter V8. The excitement alone that you are going to feel even on the wheel of the Hellcat is enough reason for it to qualify as a must try. Visit Dodge dealers in your area and ask for a test drive so that you can fully understand what is being said here. But the other models should not be undervalued either!
Clearance and luxury
Would prefer a sedan with the right capacity and luxury for your family? Sorry, but you are in for some disappointment. The 2017 Challenger is nothing compared to other sedans. But this does not really mean that you will feel too uncomfortable when inside the car. The seats are made large enough so that your shoulders and legs will still have comfortable space especially in front. Although the ceiling will be a drawback for tall drivers. Additionally, it cannot be considered an ideal family car. So in buying a Charger, make sure that this is not your purpose.
Some of the standard safety features found on the Charger are front seat side-impact airbags, antillck disc brakes, side curtain airbags, and stability and traction control. You will also be able to activate automatic breaking, rear collision sensors, and blind spot warning system. These features might seem not so important to you, but they are there for a reason and is a huge help to security.
To sum it up, the Dodge Charger just has a little bit of everything you want from a muscle car. It was never the car for family trips and school purposes.
