2017 Dodge Charger

The Dodge Charger has earned a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for 10 of the past 11 years. Impressively, both the four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2017 Dodge Charger earned this rating for the frontal side impact, and rollover crash tests.

But it doesn’t just end there … the driver-assist technologies that mitigate vehicle crashes do more than impress, they gives you peace of mind as well. The 2017 Dodge Charger offers 80 available safety features including Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus and the Lane Departure warning with Lane Keep Assist – all great reasons to make this a must-have vehicle.

Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus

You are probably wondering how it works. The 2017 Dodge Charger’s crash-mitigation system works with advanced sensor-fusion technology. Sensor-fusion combines radar and cameras to precisely determine if a frontal impact is imminent. If both the camera and radar agree of an impending collision, the system transmits audible and visual warnings for the driver to react. If the driver is unresponsive, the system triggers a series of gentle actions to slow down the vehicle and ultimately stop the vehicle if necessary.

The Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, uses camera technology to keep drivers aware of their position on the road. The 2017 Dodge Charger intelligently assesses whether the driver is steering in a way consistent with driver inattention, it then provides alerts and delivers automated steering inputs to initiate course correction.

Touchscreens for Enhanced Comfort and Confidence

A fourth generation of the renowned Uconnect® touch-screen infotainment system makes its debut on the 2017 Dodge Charger.  You can access the menu through the 8.4-inch Uconnect® center-stack touchscreen. This easy-to-use and easy-to-reach touch screen improves driver comfort and confidence, thereby promoting safe vehicle operation.
