2017 Dodge Challenger Earns Five-Star Overall Safety Rating


The 2017 Dodge Challenger isn’t just another powerful, good-looking automobile. It’s also one of the safest on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just gave it an overall safety rating of five-stars. That’s the highest score an automobile can earn in the NHTSA vehicle-evaluation program. This is the fifth time the Dodge Challenger has been awarded the overall safety rating of five stars out of five. This rating reflects FCA and Dodge’s commitment to the safety of the drivers and passengers in its automobiles. But, despite the fact that it’s a safe car, it’s also a fun one to drive, and you can see for yourself at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas

Dodge has long been known for its high-performance, extremely comfortable, stylish automobiles. Now the company is making its Dodge Challenger an even better value. The 2017 Dodge Challenger’s high-strength steel structure plays a significant role in the vehicle being rated five-stars in both side impact tests performed by the NHTSA. In addition to that, it has 70 other safety and security features available. They include Rear Cross Path detection, Blind-Spot Monitoring and Forward Collision Warning. This shows the company’s commitment to occupant safety in its vehicles.

The combination of the sporty Challenger’s carefully integrated side-guard door beams and its body structure that’s about 60% high-strength steel led to the vehicle’s top-rated performance in the side-impact testing carried out by the NHTSA. The NHTSA simulated collisions with other vehicles at 62 miles per hour and with a pole at 32 miles per hour as part of its testing. The Challenger earned their five star rating, the organization’s highest in each of the test. This should help to give occupants the peace of mind knowing they’re safe no matter what happens.

The 2017 Challenger’s supplementary restraint systems also played a role in its high crash safety rating. Having standard equipment like side airbags for both the driver and front passenger on all trim levels of the new Challenger also contributed the car’s stellar performance on the NHTSA safety tests. The NHTSA also made note of the availability of a forward Collision Warning system with forward-facing sensors programmed to detect a pending frontal collision. The vehicle alerts the driver by transmitting both audio and visual warnings, and the system pre-fills the brakes when it senses an imminent collision.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger offers blind spot warning employers sensors to help the driver when they are passing, being passed or changing lanes. When the sensors pick up a vehicle in the blind spot, icons on the side-view mirrors light-up and a chime sounds. When in reverse and the driver is backing the Challenger out of a parking space, the Rear Collision Path detection warns of passing traffic. These systems have helped the Dodge Challenger to receive a five-star rating every year it was awarded since 2008.
