2017 Dodge Viper Release Date & Info

A freshly, newly designed 2017 Dodge Viper is in the making. With the Viper ACR concept being showcased at the 2014 SEMA show we began to wonder whether they were really serious in bringing back this design to the market. But the concept was only a teaser or a showcasing of the things to come as they are announcing a completely new model for the 2017 year which will come back after a five-year-long sting and will be one of the most extravagant vehicles in the 22-year long history of Viper vehicles.

Three years after the second generation of the Viper was introduced, came the first ACR model of the said brand. It was a V-10 powered engine and was a sports car which was only available in its coupe version. But unfortunately this massive and aerodynamic beast built for racing was discontinued when the third generation of Vipers came out. But it did not take too long for the vehicle to be absent as it made its return in 2008 with even more updates and changes to it than it ever had. With a record braking 7 minutes and 12.3 seconds lap at the Nurburgring in 2011 it managed to achieve the 6th fastest lap eve measured there.

We do not know if they are trying to break their own record with the new 2017 version. But it may prove to be completely possible at least judging based on the new aero additions the vehicle has received. The ACR is the vehicle which established the most track records in the world do it does appear like this one may pull off a similar thing when it does get released. The review has all the currently available details so you get to know more about the ne version of the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR release.

The styling of the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR is going to adopt an already familiar look. The vehicle will resemble to concept that was featured at the SEMA show but will also resemble the already known 2008 and 2010 models from the past. This car will add, as well as the ones before it did, a carbon fiber splitter, a race-space vented hood, fenders gills and carbon fiber canards as well. But what the new version is going to extend with an extra pair of canards which are going to be fitted to the bumper. Thus the new ACR will have a total of two per side.

To the back side of the car there is going to be a huge wing placed which is going to help create downforce and keep the vehicle stable at higher speeds. Added as well is the aggressive looking diffuser also made from carbon fiber so it enhances stability. The new aero package helps the car achieve the highest possible level or aerodynamics making it one of the more stable cars out there. It can produce nearly a ton of downforce at 177 mph as it was calculated during testing.

Te paint theme is also a very familiar one as it was also the one used for the SEMA showcasing. So we find the thick gloss-black center stripe to the middle of the car with a complementary Adrenaline Red stripe. The new Viper is also included in the “1 of 1” Viper Program which means that it has a high level of customization available with around 8,000 exterior color options and 24,000 custom stripe colors, and 11 wheel options as well.

2017 Dodge Viper interior info

The inside of the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR does not have much information released about it. We can only assume that the interior was built with a standard Viper cockpit and produced with an emphasis on weight reduction. This means that some convenience features, like the radio for instance, have been removed from the production level as they mean more weight for the car.

What some spy photos have shown us is that the dashboard has been completely wrapped in carbon fiber while the bezel was removed. The shifter is wrapped in Alcantara leather for better gripping and a special touch for the steering wheel which sees the inclusion of a Header Red stripe for the 12-o’clock position on the wheel itself. We additionally saw an added Stryker badge and a heritage ACR instrument panel badge placed on the inside as well.

Engine dynamics

Like any other Viper vehicle, so will the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR come with a 8.4-liter V-10 engine. This vehicle is going to be able to produce an expected output of  645 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. The powertrain is going to be combined with a  a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed Corvette Z06, which is offered optionally. Indications show that there is not going to be an automatic transmission offered now nor any time soon for this vehicle.

Official word of the performance rates has not been given but based on the reduced weight this car has gone through, we expect the car to climb from the 3.3 seconds it currently takes it to achieve 0-60 mph performance. The model rivals the best in the business and can certainly hold its own with Audi R8 but even the Porsche 911 model.

New 2017 Dodge Viper ACR – Release Date, Specs & Info

If you’re one of those people who have an insatiable appetite for unbridled performance and power, the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR could very well be the sports car you’ve been looking for. Some of the highlights that make it a top performance include a ludicrous V10 power, an excellent infotainment interface, a tenacious handling, and an unfiltered and unapologetic demeanor. The 2017 Dodge Viper ACR release date should be expected this fall, if recent media and pundits’ reports are anything to go by.

Despite such a thrilling and entertaining 2017 Dodge Viper ACR review above, the vehicle comes a bit short in terms of convenience, comfort, and refinement features relative to its competition. This shouldn’t be taken to mean that the Dodge Viper ACR 2017 isn’t appealing overall, as the automaker has provided the newest model with some updates and upgrades to the material quality, technologies, and luxury amenities.

For starters, the Dodge Viper is especially appealing to people looking for raw performance as opposed to refined ride quality surrounded with refined interiors and a slew of electronic assistants. See, the Viper ACR is brash, rough, and loud.

Under the hood, the Dodge Viper comes with a humongous 10-cylinder engine that cranks a whopping 645 hp. while it can offer high handling limits for the gifted drivers, the Viper can also be downright frightening for the novice drivers. It roars and steers with a ferocious sound when pushed hard.

Flipsides are quite significant here especially for those who love refined road manners with a bit of excitement. The ride quality is stiff. The automatic transmission option is unavailable. The exterior visibility is mediocre, and the ingress and egress is particularly taxing.

Those looking for better road mannerisms should look at its competition. Chief rivals here is undeniably the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Other bogeys include the Ford Shelby GT350, Porsche 911, and the Nissan GT-R 2017.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R Coupe price starts from $101,770, and the GT-R Nismo from $149,990. Some of the highlights that make it appealing include a stupefying acceleration, easy-to-drive personality, and very high handling limits. Motivation for the high-performance Nissan GT-R Nismo comes from an upgraded base 3.8 turbocharged engine that achieves a ludicrous output of 600 horsepower and 481 pounds-feet of torque. The Nissan GT-R 2017 release date should be expected sometime this fall.
