2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 Interior
The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 is a king among coupes with its class-leading traveler and cargo area. It’s an even more habitable day-to-day motorist than its coupe/muscle-car competition. Battling the large doors open up to access can be a difficulty, nevertheless. We’ve had a great deal of experience with older variations of Dodge’s infotainment system, Uconnect, and we’ve even tested the most recent Uconnect 8.4 system in other cars. We have not tested it in the Challenger yet, but in those other automobiles, it provides crisp graphics, fast reactions, and simple, sensible menus. Coupes aren’t typically known for a roomy freight area, but the Challenger boasts a trunk that puts the Mustang and Camaro to embarassment. Freight measurements are just somewhat smaller sized than those of the Charger sedan.
2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 Engine and Performance
The 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 is smooth yet hard-revving. The 3,930-pound SXT speeds up from 0 to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, which is a bit slower than competitors with base engines. Undoubtedly, the Challenger’s various V8s provide considerably quicker velocity. The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 responsive steering assists maneuverability, but the car just feels huge, specifically on narrow roadways and tight corners. The gas and brake pedal are responsive and easily modulated. The eight-speed automated also shifts quickly and maintains gears well on grades. Equipped with the Super Track Pak’s firmer, sport-tuned suspension, the Challenger has a firm trip that’s to be anticipated for the class. It does a fantastic task soaking up little roadway flaws, however, feels jarring over bigger bumps and dips. There’s no getting around it: For a sports coupe, the Opposition huges. And heavy. Even with our tester’s Super Track Pak (which includes a sportier suspension and performance tires), body roll is pronounced when going around turns. Still, there suffices grip to have a satisfying time.
