2017 Dodge Challenger T/A Revs Up Dealerships This Fall, Starting at $38,485

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Car shoppers will have their pick of three versions of the 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A coupe when it arrives at Dodge dealerships this fall.

Dealers will open order books for the Challenger T/A starting in October. The car takes its name from the legendary model Dodge used to compete in the SCCA's Trans Am racing series.

The base 2017 Challenger T/A is priced at $38,485, while the T/A Plus starts at $41,235. Prices include a $1,095 destination charge.

The top-of-the-line Challenger T/A 392 with a six-speed manual transmission costs $46,090, including destination fees and a $1,000 gas-guzzler tax. The gas-guzzler tax does not apply to 392 versions with the eight-speed automatic transmission, Fiat Chrysler said.

Exterior details include a new hood with a center-mounted scoop, Satin Black graphics and optional hood pins.

Retro paint choices include Green Go and a revised Yellow Jacket shade.

A performance exhaust system is standard.

The T/A and T/A Plus are equipped with a 375-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine, while the T/A 392 churns out 485 hp, courtesy of a 6.4-liter V8 engine.

In the cabin, the retro feel continues with houndstooth cloth inserts for the front seats in the base T/A. The T/A Plus gets leather bucket seats.

The special versions of the Challenger take aim at the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang and Nissan 370Z.

Edmunds says: Dodge does an excellent job of serving its faithful customers with the rollout of this retro trio.
