2017 Charger’s Safety Tech Shocks Industry

Remember when you saw your first real American muscle car? It was awe inspiring, wasn’t it. Most of us, whether we admit it or not, have secretly yearned to be behind the wheel of our own muscle car, especially when that car is the Dodge Charger. The Charger originally came into being way back in 1966 and was considered to be one of the best muscle cars of that era. It was fast, just like the 2017 Dodge Charger is today and it was comfortable with a luxury interior just like today’s Charger.

Of course, the 2017 Charger has so many interesting and safety conscious items included with it that weren’t even thought of back in the 60s, when speed seemed to be the only mandate of a muscle car. Today’s Charger, although faster than a Porsche 911 Carrera S, reaching 60 miles per hour in only 3.4 seconds, has more than enough safety enhanced features that make driving your Charger a pleasure. Knowing that the Dodge engineers were thinking of you as they were busy at the drawing board instills confidence in the whole process of automobile manufacturing and gives you peace of mind as you leave other cars in the dust while you are breaking away from that dead stop.

Some of the safety features in the 2017 Dodge Charger are: forward collision warnings, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and 9-1-1 emergency assistance, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitors and lane departure warnings, among many other features. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has tested the Charger under all conditions and has acknowledged that it is indeed a safe car. They have given the 2017 Dodge Charger their highest safety rating of five stars for overall safety.

Safety is always a consideration with the Dodge folks and that’s why they always take special care when they design the interior. Since the driver has to operate the vehicle and use the dash controls at the same time, the designers made sure to make it as user-friendly as possible. Beside good size knobs and buttons, they added a large (8.4-inch) touchscreen infotainment system that enables the driver to reach it handily and operate it in a fraction of the time that many others take. When you stop in to DCH Auto Group in Temecula, get behind the wheel of the 2017 Dodge Charger and enjoy the feel of a real muscle car.
