2017 Dodge Challenger Overview (Part 1)

 

The last blog post was about the 2017 Dodge Charger; this week, we’re discussing it’s equally popular brother, the Dodge Challenger. Just as classic, the Challenger has evolved over the years, but don’t let that fool you – its history is just as rich. If you look closely, you can spot the Challenger in pop culture – the racing scene in The Bucket List, Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and the Green Lantern to name a few. This two part series will go over the fourteen (yes, fourteen) different trim levels that are offered for this year’s Challenger. We’ll start with the seven lower trim levels: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T, GT AWD, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, and T/A. As with the Charger posts, these will not build upon the previous package because they are all so different; however, we’re going to disregard the same features as always (ABS, cruise, etc.). If you’d like to see an in-depth description of the features, head on over to the features glossary.
