The classic icon in the Dodge muscle car line is the Challenger and the 2017 R/T does not provide any disappointment. With a curb weight of 4190 pounds, it provides an exciting 5.1 second 0 to 60 acceleration. This is provided by the 5.7L L/345 motor providing 375 horsepower and 410 ft.-lbs. of torque. Fuel economy is not bad considering it is a muscle car with a city economy of 15 miles per gallon and a highway of 23.
Safety features are very important with this class of vehicle and Dodge does not underperform here. Standard features such as electronic stability control and parking sensors are provided. Other advanced features such as braking assist and hill start assist are included as well. In addition, rear view reverse cameras are available within this model.
Interior features are prime examples of a bonus when you sit inside of this remarkable vehicle. Keeping comfortable will not be an issue with the dual zone air conditioning system. It also implements an automatic temperature control system that adjusts the fan speed depending upon the internal ambient temperature. We all hate it when a driver comes up behind us and has their bright lights on instantly blinding us. This edition has the technology to automatically dim the rear-view mirror in the vent this unfortunate situation occurs.
The six-speaker stereo system allows for the streaming of Bluetooth audio included in its touch-screen system. This screen also doubles as the controls for the climate control system and other systems throughout the vehicle.
