Atlanta Dodge muscle car fanatics! Dodge is pinning this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise as the perfect place to re-introduce two nameplates that you may be familiar with- the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona. Yep, that’s right. The all-new 2017 Challenger T/A and 2017 Charger Daytona are headed our way.
“More than 1.5 million enthusiasts are expected to come to Woodward to celebrate classic muscle cars this week, so it’s a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona with new special editions,” states Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars - Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA - North America. “We’ll continue to celebrate the brand’s muscle car performance heritage with another special-edition later this fall.”
Wondering where the power will come from? These two new vehicles will be available with the 6.4-liter “392” HEMI V-8 engine, producing 485 horsepower or the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, which produces about 375 horsepower when paired with the new electronically controlled active performance power system.
Production for the 2017 Challenger T/A and 2017 Charger Daytona is set to begin this fall, so we don’t have too long of a wait. Orders for the Charger will be available in September and the the Challenger T/A models will be the following month, October.
Check 'em out for yourself below. Then be sure to stop in Landmark DCJR to check out the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and give it a test drive!
The 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is still rolling strong after entering the fifth year of its second-generation design. This “Street and Racing” SUV produces about 500 horsepower and is one of the most powerful Jeeps on the market. Comparable to the BMW X6M, Mercedes- AMG GLE63, Porsche Cayenne Turbo and Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged, the Grand Cherokee SRT knows how to hang with the big guys.
Atlanta truck buyers! Remember the Ram Mega Cab that was first introduced to us in 2006? It looks like it will be making an appearance in the 1500 lineup just in time for the 2018 model-year. A string of spy shots have been released and it’s pretty obvious that this 1500’s cab is much more lengthy than your standard 1500 cab (even through the camouflage efforts).
If you recall, the Mega Cab is comparable to a stretched limousine- offering 44 inches of legroom and seating up to six people- very comfortably. The rear seats reclined like La-Z-Boy’s and bins provided plenty of storage for tools or other equipment to take along on the ride. It even received its own list of achievements, such as “largest interior cargo volume of any full-size pickup” and “largest second row legroom”.
Some of the other photos show interesting characteristics- such as a covered steering wheel (which is likely cosmetic updates) and two small spots that could possibly be cameras… 360-degree imaging, anyone?
We don’t know about you but our team at Landmark DCJR is pretty excited to test this one out!
We’ll be sure to update you when we know more!
Although the Dodge Charger is typically known for its bad-boy appearance and performance all packaged into one- this model, the 2016 Dodge Charger SXT Blacktop, is a little different. If you’re on the market for a sedan that keeps the family in mind without sacrificing the rebellious visuals, this one’s for you.
