The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 will come two years after the thoroughly updated 2015 model. Expect it to offer only minor alterations, including several cosmetic changes as well as reshuffled equipment packages. This retro-styled two-door coupe will retain its current appeal and even surpass its predecessor in some segments. That said, the likes of the Chevy Camaro and Ford Mustang will be facing a formidable rival in the years to come.
When it comes to the engine specs, expect the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 to carry over basically unchanged. Once again, it will get its power from the mighty 6.4-liter V8 that punches out impressive 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Like the rest of the Challenger lineup, the SRT 392 will also be matched either to a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission. According to some tests, the unit paired with the manual transmission needs 4.5 seconds to reach the 60 mph limit.
The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 will feature a long list of standard equipment. The amenities that set it apart from the lower trims include a special air intake, upgraded Brembo brakes with six-piston fronts, a high performance adaptive suspension, forged alloy wheels and a sportier power-steering settings. Inside the cabin, expect the upcoming Challenger SRT 392 to be offered with upgraded leather upholstery, the 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system as well as additional information provided by the trip computer.
2017 Challenger SRT 392 Design
When it comes to the sheet metal, the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 will retain most of the styling cues seen on the previous model. In other words, expect to see the classic 70s design that gives this vehicle a unique appeal. The only changes will come in the form of several subtle tweaks on the front fascia and the rear end. There will be the familiar split-grille and sleek LED headlights, while the SRT-badged models get a cold-air intake on the hood. Luckily, the Challenger’s recognizable proportions and profile haven’t changed at all over the years. Featuring a low and aggressive stance, it’s no wonder that many car enthusiasts praise this model as one of the few remaining American muscle cars.
