The biggest changes coming to Dodge in 2017 are some new trims for old models and the end of the run for the bottom and top of the lineup.

Production of the Dart ended in September, though dealers still have thousands of the slow-selling compact sedans to sell.

On the other end of the performance brand’s power spectrum, production of the Viper sports coupe is scheduled to end at the end of August after a 25-year run.

Dodge introduced its first all-wheel-drive Challenger, called the GT AWD, in late 2016. A wide-body, Hellcat-powered version of the coupe, called the Challenger ADR, will make its way to dealerships in 2017, as will a heritage-inspired series of the Challenger T/A.

There are three Challenger T/A variants available: T/A, T/A Plus and T/A 392. Package-specific features include a satin black hood and front fascia, roof and decklid graphic, T/A body side stripes and available factory-installed hood pins.

As for the Charger, the return of the Daytona trim rolls out to dealers nationwide for 2017, featuring a more aggressive look for the sedan with an integrated hood scoop. The brand is considering offering a similar hood scoop on the three-row Durango SUV.
