Overview

The 2017 Dodge Charger is offered in SE, SXT, R/T, Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack, SRT 392 and SRT Hellcat trims.

Charger SE and SXT models come with a 292-horsepower, 3.6L V6, which the EPA rates at 23 mpg combined fuel economy. Both models come standard with rear-wheel drive but can be optioned with all-wheel drive. The R/T models channel Dodge's muscle-car past, stepping up to a 5.7L Hemi V8 with 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. The engine utilizes variable cam timing as well as a 4-cylinder mode for fuel saving when the extra power isn't needed. R/T cars also feature several performance upgrades to the suspension, exhaust, brakes and seats. The R/T Scat Pack also gets the engine out of the SRT 392.

SRT models top of the Charger heap. The SRT 392 is powered by a 6.4L Hemi V8 and delivers 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque; meanwhile, the SRT Hellcat features a supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 good for 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet. All Chargers make use of a standard TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Charger SE comes well equipped with 17-inch wheels, a power driver's seat, dual-zone air conditioning, other power accessories and a Uconnect 5.0-inch touch screen. SXT models add 19-inch wheels, cloth sport seats with heated front seats, 4-way lumbar adjustability for the driver, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, one year of SiriusXM radio, a voice-command Uconnect interface with 8.4-inch touch screen and Bluetooth connectivity and a 276-watt Alpine 6-speaker premium audio system.

In addition to the Hemi V8 and performance upgrades, the R/T provides 20-inch wheels, a rev-matching TorqueFlite transmission, plus paddle shifters and Sport Mode. Alcantara suede and Nappa leather sport seats are also included. The Road & Track trim includes HID projector headlights and auto-dimming driver's side exterior mirror, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, power adjustable pedals and steering column and upgraded LED interior lighting.

The SRT 392 is equipped much like the Road & Track, though it also includes a functional hood scoop and oil cooler, front and rear climate control outlets, unique interior appointments, a rear back-up camera, adaptive damping suspension which adjusts firmness and allows Auto, Sport and Track modes. Finally the Hellcat brings performance-tuned steering, aluminum interior accents and, of course, 707 horsepower.

Notable options across the model range include the Driver Confidence Group, with a rear back-up camera, power heated foldaway mirrors, ParkSense parking assist and blind-spot detection. Navigation is available on SXT and both R/T models, while a 19-speaker Harman/Kardon 900-watt premium audio system is available on the two SRT models.
