2017 Dodge Charger Release Date, Specs – Bold, heritage-laden, and muscular, the new Dodge Charger for 2017 is a great choice if room and distinctive style are atop your priorities. So, if an available all-wheel drive, hugely potent V8 engines, smooth and hush ride, quality interior materials, and excellent touchscreen electronics interface, are what you are looking for, it would be wise to start planning about how you’ll own it before it is released in March 2017.
Just like the Chargers before it, the new 2017 sedan offers attitude, performance and luxury in an even better measure. Entering the cabin gets you a much broader appeal thanks in part to the quality materials and sleek dashboard although such features are sometimes ignores as people are often oriented towards its performance.
With 16.5 cubic feet of trunk volume, the Charger ranks atop the cream in its segment in terms of trunk space. Driving it through the highways and cities isn’t that boring as you’d expect sedans to be. It comes with sporty steering and handling, while offering a supple and hush diving experience. You could also make the performance better through the myriad of upgrades available for an extra including an available three-mode stability control systems and multiple sport suspension offerings.
When it comes to power, the highly potent V8 engines will prove their worth with top-of-the-range models cranking up to an eye-popping 707 lbs. ft. of torque. Although the Charger has quite a substantive following, there are several rivals which offer a better appeal and driving performance. The list includes the 2017 Chrysler 300 – Charger’s corporate sibling. The spacious and well-equipped 2017 Kia Cadenza and 2017 Chevrolet Impala.
And in case you find the Charger’s fuel economy ratings being dreary, you should check out the 2017 Toyota Avalon Sedan and Hybrid models. To sum it up, the new 2017 Dodge Charger isn’t for everyone but is for those who value fun and a bit of athleticism.
