And you thought muscle cars were gone. Well, think again, because they are back and they are here to stay. The new 2017 Dodge Challenger is all that you need to know about what muscle cars were and what they are now. Their tradition goes back decades, as you probably already know, and that’s just one of the reasons that they are so revered by so many car aficionados.

Another reason is that they just look pretty cool and they can clean house if someone challenges them at a stop sign or traffic signal. You can certainly order your challenger in a V-6 but hey…why buy a muscle car if you’re not getting all the muscle that you can get. The V-8, 6.2-liter, 707 horsepower engine will tear through a quarter mile in just over 11 seconds. That is fast! And that engine is the monster powerhouse that is the top of the line for the Challenger. That makes this stock car go faster than just about anything on the road today.

There are other engine sizes and packages and there is surely one that fits your sensibilities. Just looking at a Challenger will make other car owners back off and slow down to an unchallenging pace so they won’t be embarrassed coming off the stop sign ten feet behind you. You have them beat just by being behind the wheel of any Dodge Challenger, no matter what engine you have under the hood.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger is fast and stylish, no doubt, but it is also comfortable and driver friendly and it has plenty of safety features. Adaptive Cruise Control is available, along with forward collision warning system, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alerts. The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gave the Challenger its highest rating of “good” in safety tests and the federal government gave this rugged American car five stars overall in their safety tests.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger can be seen at Kim’s Chrysler/Dodge and is available for test drives. You can also visit the website for more information and details:
