2017 Dodge Challenger Walk Around

The Challenger is a retro design all the way, with shapes that date to the original car from 45 years ago. The 2017 car looks very similar to the 2008 model that marked the rebirth of the Challenger. The Shaker hood with the power bulge is totally throwback to the Sixties.


Even the hounds tooth cloth trim, optional on the SXT and R/T, is throwback. Like the 1971 Challenger, the center console rises on the passenger side. Otherwise the Challenger feels like a luxury coupe inside. There’s a high-tech 7.0-inch customizable instrument cluster TFT screen, and an optional 8.4-inch touchscreen with sharpened resolution and quicker software for infotainment.

Acoustic glass and heavy sound insulation keep the cabin noise down even with high-performance tires. The Hemi’s engine noise enters the cabin, but being able to hear the engine is a good thing.

The front seats would be at home in a Mercedes, especially when they’re Nappa leather. Not so the rear seat, where there’s room for three (for short periods of time), but there’s less headroom than the Challenger’s size would suggest. And climbing in through the front doors takes some contortion.

The trunk is nearly huge, at 16.2 cubic feet, more space than some midsize sedans. It’s wide, long and shallow, able to fit several large suitcases, making this muscle car a good traveling car.

The thick roof pillars and high beltline detract from visibility, and a rearview camera isn’t standard on the base SXT.
