New 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona - two performance-upgraded models infused with heritage style.   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.
