Dodge first teased a T/A trim line for the Challenger in late 2014 at the SEMA show. The Challenger T/A concept was powered by Dodge’s 6.4-liter HEMI and featured upgrades such as lightweight wheels, sticky tires, a rear seat delete and half roll cage, racing seats with harnesses, hood pins and twin Air Catcher headlights.
The production 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A, unveiled yesterday ahead of the Woodward Dream Cruise, doesn’t feature all of the same equipment as the concept. The 6.4-liter engine has been swapped for the R/T’s 5.7-liter, the rear seats remain intact and the racing buckets have been swapped for standard seats.
A lot of the concept’s goodies have been carried over to the production model, however. The twin Air Catcher headlamps are present along with Satin Black Challenger T/A graphics, Challenger T/A badges, hood pins, lightweight 20-inch wheels, an active exhaust system and upgraded suspension. The concept’s bright ‘Green Go’ exterior paint is available on the production car, which is joined by a Yellow Jacket High-impact shade as well.
The 2017 Dodge Challenger T/A may not be the 6.4-liter powered track-bred muscle car the concept was, but we think it’s a good addition to the car’s already vast lineup. What do you think? Let us know if you think the Challenger T/A is Hot or Not by voting and commenting below.
