MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Dodge Challenger. If you're looking for a muscle car that won't force you to sacrifice comfort or convenience, the 2017 Dodge Challenger is your best bet. From the entry level v-6, to the over the top 707 horsepower SRT Hellcats supercharged V8, There's a model to meet every taste and budget. It may not be as agile around turns as his chief rivals, but with sinister looks, an epic V8 soundtrack, and breathtaking straightline speed, the Challenger is sure to satisfy. Compared to smaller muscle cars, the Challenger has a massive trunk. If you can't fit all of your luggage back there, you probably have too much stuff. It also has backseats that can actually hold smaller adults. What a novelty. Both front and rear seats are comfortable for hours on end, though they may be a little wide for smaller passengers. Combined with a quiet refined interior and smooth ride, the Challenger is far easier to live with than the competition. And to top it off, the Uconnect infotainment system is easily the best in class. All things considered, the 2017 Dodge Challenger presents a very compelling bottom line. You get a lot for your money and anything you give up for handling is easily forgotten once you lay into the throttle. Even against the newer Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro variants, the Challenger demands respect, as well as a place on your short list.
