The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat & SRT 392-Pick Your Flavor of "Totally Badass"

Don't let anyone tell you that muscle cars are past their prime, because the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 prove that the sun still shines bright on this niche market. The Dodge Challenger is no rookie to the muscle car segment, but it is fresh faced and full of extraordinary power for the 2017 model year, especially in the SRT trims. Both trims simply effuse American masculinity, with sleek, powerful bodies that give you that low, long front end with that tail that just looks ready to jump off the starting line at any moment.

How the Power Is Meted Out in the Fierce, Ferocious 2017 Challenger SRT Hellcat & SRT 392 Trims

The SRT 392: Thundering away under the bonnet of the SRT 392, is an exceptionally capable, ferocious 485 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine. This beauty will send you sprinting from 0-60 mph in just over four seconds. If that's too long for you, you should check out the engine perched inside the Hellcat trim.

The Hellcat:Things get even more fearsome when you get to the 2017 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and inside its belly sits a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that'll serve up 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. You can mate that to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. And that automatic setup will send you sprinting from 0-60 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds-the manual will get you from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

Topping Things Off With Tech

Regardless of which flavor of serious on-road prowess you find yourself drawn to, between the Hellcat and the 392, the interior gets a generous array of tech features and that sleek exterior feel carries on into the cabin, with a well laid out instrument cluster and touchscreen area and a sweeping dashboard that does the work of making the cockpit both look and feel wider and fluid, playing on rounded shapes and flowing lines. As for tech, the 2017 model year got a healthy boost that brings modern technology to this classically styled muscle car.
