DODGE KICKS OFF ANNUAL WOODWARD DREAM CRUISE WITH DEBUT OF NEW 2017 CHALLENGER T/A AND CHARGER DAYTONA


 

 

Dodge believes the golden age of performance cars is now, making this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise the perfect time and place to reintroduce the brand’s two famed, racebred nameplates — the new 2017 Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona, muscle cars that deliver even more performance and precision to the naturally aspirated HEMI V-8 lineup with unique powertrain induction and exhaust enhancements, chassis upgrades for greater handling and braking, plus functional performance styling appointments inside and out.

“More than 1.5 million enthusiasts are expected to come to Woodward to celebrate classic muscle cars this week, so it’s a perfect opportunity to pay tribute to the Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona with new special editions,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “We’ll continue to celebrate the brand’s muscle car performance heritage with another special-edition announcement later this fall.”

Dodge kicked off Woodward Dream Cruise week by added another chapter to its muscle car legacy with the unveiling of the 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona and Dodge Challenger T/A limited edition cars. Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America, introduced the new cars during a press event Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Vinsetta Garage restaurant in Berkley, Michigan. The 2017 Dodge Charger Daytona and Dodge Challenger T/A go on sale in the fourth quarter of this year.
