Our Take on the 2017 Dodge Challenger

Our Take

The 2018 Dodge Challenger's new GT trim level — the first Challenger with all-wheel drive — doesn’t have the muscle to be a proper muscle car, but what it gives up in power, it gains in all-weather traction.

What We Don't Like

  • Not a muscle car without the V-8
  • Visor hinges intrude into sight lines
  • No muscle car burble or engine roar with V-6
  • Lacks steering precision, feels heavy
  • Optional moonroof eats into headroom
  • V-8 fuel economy

Notable Features

  • Two-door, retro-styled muscle car
  • V-6 or V-8, including two supercharged SRT V-8s (Hellcat, Demon)
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive
  • Six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic
  • Performance Pages multimedia app
  • Shares most powertrains with Dodge Charger sedan

Great

by Vega from Houston, Texas on February 2, 2017

This car is great! The V6 engine is extremely powerful. The amount of torque feels perfect and the car handles really well.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
