What was that streak of lightning that just flew past us? That’s what a lot of people think when they see a 2017 Dodge Charger speed by them. The Charger is one of those muscle cars that just never seems to go out of fashion. They are fast (as lightning) and as comfortable as a luxury car and maybe that’s why drivers in the know are scooping these up so fast from DCH Auto Group in Temecula.
There could be other reasons too. Even though the Charger was conceived of as a powerful American muscle car, its designers also thought about safety. They put in so much safety gear and engineered it so meticulously that the NHTSA (the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) gave it their highest rating of five stars for overall safety. Yes, we said “Wow.” too. The NHTSA is an official agency of the Executive Branch of the United States government, so those five stars really mean a lot.
Some of the safety gear that comes with the Charger is: lane departure warnings, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warnings, adaptive cruise control and lane-assist control among others such as automatic emergency braking and 9-1-1 emergency assistance.
As far as speed goes, the Charger Hellcat version is capable of hitting 60 miles per hour from a dead stop in only 3.4 seconds, which is quicker than a Porsche 911 Carrera S. Who would have known that? Porsches are nice and obviously fast but apparently the 2017 Dodge Charger is much roomier and nicer and faster. We’re not suggesting that when you buy your Charger that you start challenging all comers on the roadway. Just know that you will be behind the wheel of one fast and very safe car and if you need the extra speed to get you out of a tight spot, then go with confidence and have a great time doing it.
The 2017 Dodge Charger comes in several trim levels and optional engine sizes. The V-6 models are every bit as responsive as the more powerful and faster V-8s and you get the same beautifully engineered body design that will intimidate just about any other vehicle owner out there. The DCH Auto Group in Temecula has the 2017 Dodge Charger in the showroom just waiting for you to see how it fits. Take a test drive – you’ll find out what you’ve been missing.
