The 2017 Charger lineup includes four engine options, eight different trims and they all have their own unique traits. Buyers have the option of all-wheel-drive on the Charger SE or SXT and all four engines are paired to an eight speed automatic transmission.
Six of the trims are returning models, but new to 2017 are the limited-edition Daytona trims, the Charger Daytona and Charger Daytona 392. The design of both of the Daytona models goes all the way back to the original Charger Daytona that raced in the Talladega 500 more than 50 years ago.

The base engine on the Charger lineup is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, but it’s far from basic. This engine offers efficiency and a significant amount of power in comparison to most base engines on full-size sedans. The 3.6L engine produces 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and best-in-class fuel economy of up to 31 highway mpg. This is the standard engine on the Charger SE and SXT Plus.
Each of the other three engines on the Charger lineup all have “HEMI” in their engine name. HEMI is in reference to the unique hemispherical combustion chambers on each cylinder. In comparison to flat combustion chambers, the hemispherical design results in less heat loss so fuel burns more evenly and it also allows for more room for intake and exhaust valves.
The next engine is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, which is standard on the Charger R/T and Charger Daytona. New to 2017, all 5.7L HEMI engines will be fitted with a 2.75 electronically controlled active exhaust system to further improve performance. The 5.7L HEMI maxes out at 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque.
Then there is the SRT-tuned 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine and it produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. With this engine the Charger can accelerate from 0-60 mph in the low four-second range. This engine is standard on the Charger R/T Scat Pack, Daytona 392 and Charger SRT 392.
Finally, there is the legendary SRT Hellcat engine that is reserved for the Charger SRT Hellcat. This engine is a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine. This engine pushes out 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, making the Charger SRT Hellcat the fastest and most powerful sedan in the world. The Charger SRT Hellcat can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 204 mph.
The 2017 Charger looks very similar to the 2016 model. It has a chiseled and aerodynamic exterior that has subtle design features to improve performance. There are a variety of wheel and tire choices available and the Charger SE rides on 17-inch cast aluminum wheels and low profile tires. Buyers have the choice of 12 vibrant exterior colors, some of which are a part of the High Impact Paint legacy.
