For those who feel they've waited long enough, the wait is almost over. The 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat Trims are set to go into production next month.

The SRT Hellcat trims for both Challenger and Charger will get an extensive list of new features - the most among all muscle car configurations - and those waiting to purchase a new model until the release of these two exciting versions of Dodge mainstays can expect to see them on the lot at Route 46 Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM at some time during the fourth quarter.

Dodge Pays Homage to History of Racecars with Hellcat Attitude

According to Torque News, the changes in the 2017 model year examples are all fairly simple and when parked next to a 2015 or 2016 model, some people might not be able to pick out the differences, but there are a few key points that make the newest iteration a clear upgrade.

All 2017 Challenger and Charger models in SRT 392 or SRT Hellcat form have received a new backlit steering wheel center, with the SRT glowing white in 392 models and red in Hellcat models. There's also more Hellcat badging, with the SRT logo being accompanied by the Hellcat head on the dash, seat backs and rear spoiler.

As far as the exterior design is concerned, 2017 Hellcat Challenger and Charger get new, lighter wheels with a 5-spoke design and each is offered in one of 13 available colors - Granite, Billet Silver, Pitch Black, Maximum Steel, Go Mango, Redline Red, TorRed, Yellow Jacket, Octane Red, Green Go, Destroyer Grey, White Knuckle and Contusion Blue.

"They are not autonomous. They are not hybrids. They do not get 50 mpg. You cannot summon them with your smartphone," said Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger cars for Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat for FCA North America, "but they might encourage teens to put down their phone and enjoy a ride down a boulevard in a true muscle car."

The 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger with SRT Hellcat trim is proud to be one of the many of the brand's models unveiled at the Woodward Dream Cruise week in Detroit, and Route 46 Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM is proud to make more information about it available to you, the driver, shopper and muscle car enthusiast.
