Meet the New Special-Edition 2017 Challenger T/A on Woodward AVE

We have something for you that is going to really rock Woodward this year. We’re reintroducing the famed Challenger T/A for 2017. This race-bred muscle car puts the power down via the 6.4-liter 392 HEMI® V8 engine with a naturally aspirated 485 horsepower, or the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with up to 375 horsepower with the all-new electronically controlled active performance exhaust system.

And while Detroit’s Woodward Avenue may be made for cruising, the 2017 Challenger T/A is designed to stop and turn heads with its chassis upgrades for greater handling and braking, plus functional performance styling appointments inside and out. 

Select highlights for 2017 include:
• New directed cold-air hood system feeding a modified SRT® Hellcat air box adds even more fresh air 
• New SRT Hellcat-inspired driver and passenger side “Air Catcher” headlamps feature unique LED-illuminated T/A logos 
• New 2.75-inch electronically controlled active exhaust system on 5.7-liter HEMI V8 models delivers a signature muscle-car sound 
• Wider, 20 x 9-inch and all-new 20 x 9.5-inch wheels with high-performance tires help improve handling on 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter HEMI powered models, respectively 
• 392 models add an ultra-high performance Brembo® brake system with six-piston front and four-piston rear brake calipers 
• Unique Satin Black painted hood and exterior graphics, including available hood pins that highlight the Dodge brand’s cultivation of its storied performance history 
• Performance bolstered seats, Dodge performance steering wheel, unique white-face gauges and dark interior accents are included

      Scat pack is in a legal fight with Dodge.

    I’m feeling zero love for the black roof, black trunk lid and black wheels. Other than that, it’s the best looking modern Dodge performance car that there is (in my opinion). I do think it needs a full complement of old-fashion chromed trim, including front and rear chromed bumpers, so that it doesn’t look like it came from a one-step plastic molding machine. The closer it’s made to look like the 1970 Challenger T/A, the closer it is to pure perfection — all that is necessary now was created 46 years ago.

    I am a person that purchases a car every two years, however, all the Shaker editions don’t have chrome wheels, chrome gas cap, and some chrome on the wheels. I suppose I will have to keep my 2010 Challenger forever. Can there be a T/A that has the chrome loop grille with the chrome wheels, gas cap, etc.? I don’t want to have to pay $45,000 for a car that I then have to purchase a new grille, gas cap, wheels, etc. Back in the 70’s there were so many options for cars and now there is nothing. Black wheels remind all of us Baby Boomers of the cheap steel wheels. An entirely black grille looks like someone stole it. Come on Dodge, make the car right so I don’t have to keep my 2010 forever.

    Can you at least offer optional rallye looking wheels and not like the Foose one’s where the center cap is too small.

    Challenger buyers really need a bigger choice when it comes to exterior paint colors. For 2016, I counted only ten available colors and found just one that was good enough (Redline Red Tri-coat Pearl), but not really a top favorite for me — maybe more exterior colors will be offered for 2017. By comparison, in 1970 the Plymouth Road Runner, GTX, ‘Cuda, etc. were available in about 25 different exterior colors. It took that many choices, at that time, for me to find my favorite color which was, and is, Deep Burnt Orange (code FK5), a color I haven’t seen offered since that year.

      Ten exterior colors available (at the end of 2016) and seven of them put you to sleep. And the remaining three colors with some life to them glare at you because they’re not balanced out and toned down with chromed trim and bright wheels; the required balancing can’t be accomplished by adding more and more black stripes, black plastic and black metal. If cars are to never have chromed trim again, please at least offer a standard bright metal ‘mag’ wheel that doesn’t have to be purchased as part of an expensive ‘package’ option. Additionally, the total exterior color choices should increased to approximately twenty and include, among others, colors of the Burnt Orange and Burnt Orange Metallic class/type.

        Once a great exterior color is selected, it needs two additional attributes to look optimal: 1) it has to have a glossy finish (not a dull, matte eggshell finish) and 2) in most cases it should be a metal-flake type paint.

          I vote for the metal-flake type paint

    I consider it a near fatal flaw that Challenger does not have a ‘locking’ fuel door (releasable from the car’s interior) or, at least, a key-type locking gas cap. My 2011 Durango has a locking fuel door and it provides me great, great comfort. In the late ’70s I had a small car that was essentially ruined when local juvenile delinquents sugared its gas tank late one night (it didn’t have a locking gas cap, most cars at that time didn’t). After that very costly disaster, every car I have since owned had an aftermarket locking gas cap immediately installed either by myself or, in later years, as part of the car’s design. I just ordered a 2016 Challenger R/T Scat Pack and, after I receive it, it will not be out of my sight until I install an aftermarket locking gas cap. But what might happen on its several day trip from the plant to the Dodge Dealership? The hood will be locked, the trunk will be locked, the doors will be locked, but the fuel door is ‘open’ for business — does three out of four make sense when all four are critical? Couldn’t modern juvenile delinquents do the same thing to a trailer load of new Challengers, late one night, that they did to my old car by using dirt, stones, sugar, etc.? Who will ease my pain?

    • Tim
      Posted September 11, 2016 at 6:49 pm | Permalink

      Yeah, the same thing bothers me too. I dig the look of the ‘FUEL’ filler door, it’s a fantastic accent to the vehicle …. BUT to leave such a critical component open for anybody to easily damage really doesn’t make sense to me.

        I’ve spent many hours trying to locate a locking gas cap (LGC) for the 2016 Challenger but I’m unable to find one. I can’t even find a 2016 Challenger LGC on the official Mopar (parts) website. There are LGCs available for older Challengers, however, no major company has addressed the 2016 Challenger. How is this possible?

          I bought a 2015 R/T & mine came with a locking gas cap in the trunk in case I felt like I needed to use it.

      can’t find wheel locks or locking gas cap for my 2016 my Challenger. Will someone make them some day ????

    It would look much better with a T/A hood instead of the AAR Cuda hood.

  • Jonathan L Rankin
    Posted October 24, 2016 at 5:22 pm | Permalink

    Heck, I’ve had a T/A Challenger since 2011 when I took a Green With Envy SRT8 and Changed the hood to the T/A style with hood pins, rear spoiler with reflective Challenger T/A decal, removed the Mustang looking stripes and applied the reflective black T/A striping and added the fau chrome bumpers and surrounds. I applaud Dodge on their rendition but I like mine so much better. Wish I could attach a pic here.

    Why the aar hood instead of the t/a hood?
    Just like the cuda style tips instead of dual challenger tips,and why not side exhaust? And like the yellowjacket, how much more does the t/a weigh???
    MOPAR rules but c’mon styling department…..

    I brought a 2016 SRT . No complaints, power great,torque great ! Just think of away to bring the Roadrunner Superbird back and you will have something people.

    When I was young I wanted the Charger with Plum Crazy paint and the 5.7 hemi and I could not afford it!!! Now more than 60 years later I am 75 years old and I own the 2016 Challenger R/T with Plum Crazy Purple Pearl coat and I think it is the most beautiful car in the world bar none! I love every single thing about this beautiful living creature(from the front and with the orange lights on it reminds me of a great cat crouching and ready to pounce) except one!!!!! I totally agree about the lack of chromed wheels but most of all I am literally at a loss as to why no locking fuel cap. Even the most basic economy cars have either a locking cap or a locking fuel door.

    Today’s world is even more lawless than even the recent past and people will ruin someone’s property just because they are scumbags.

    Dodge you must come up with a locking cap for the Challenger!!! This is a must on your part for your loyal customers!!!

    I love this car. To say its “tough” is an understatement. I’m not sure I liking the wheels, but the black over green looks great.

    Cannot wait until Dodge can provide a 12 month fix for those of us up north such as an AWD Challenger perhaps?

    I bought a 2014 RT Challenger 5.7 Hemi, with the idea of installing all 3 scat packs in my daily driver, but after several tripspection to the dealership. I was told I would have to sign a statement that I would not drive my RT on the street. I was told that in Massachusetts it would not pass inspection.
    I was very disappointed that I purchased not only the heaviest Muscle car made in 2014, but that the options available were not made for the street.
    Yet later, in 2016 Dodge built a RT Scat pack which is available in Massachusetts and passes Massachusetts state inspections. I again asked about installing the 2nd and 3rd Scat pack kits, but again was told I would need to sign a waiver and it would not pass State inspections.
    Does Dodge sell a performance Scat pack kits that would work in my vehicle?

    Why doesnt Dodge put a T/A hood on it? Not a fan of the AAR re-pop hood on it. Would be great it the exhaust came out where the originals did.

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any recommendations for novice blog writers?

    I’d certainly appreciate it.
