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, race-bred 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 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, FCA-North America.
For drivers who want to be a part of the Dodge T/A legacy, the new 207 Challenger T/A builds on the standard content of the 375-horsepower Challenger R/T model. The T/A package also includes the Super Track Pak as standard equipment.
The TREMEC TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission is standard, while an eight-speed automatic is available.
