Performance comes in many shapes and forms, but few are as iconic and recognizable as the 2017 Dodge Viper. Not much has changed in the decades since the first Viper was launched. The 2017 Dodge Viper still has the honking great V10 engine up front, concealed under a massive hood, with the characteristic swooping opening along the flanks. The new 2017 Dodge Viper incorporates many of the same styling traits, but looks completely modern thanks to stunning LED daytime running lights, turn signals, and taillights.
Everything about the Dodge Viper screams performance. Once you’ve experienced the immense power of the V10 and zipped around a corner feeling the incredible g-forces, you’ll need to have one in your life.
The interior of the 2017 Dodge Viper is a straightforward driving environment but has advanced well beyond the austere cabin of its forbearers. It starts with the elegant materials and impressive craftsmanship on display from the hand-wrapped leather dash, to the Sabelt® performance seats, to the perfectly designed steering wheel. Technology is available in full force thanks to the Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system that includes a large 8.4-inch touchscreen display with GPS navigation, HD Radio™, and Bluetooth® streaming audio. Standard on every Dodge Viper are the SRT® Performance Pages that presents you with detailed read out on the Viper’s performance, lap times, and essential vehicle information. In the gauge cluster is a 7-inch reconfigurable Driver Information Display that shows the engine revs along with your choice of information from performance, vehicle status, and even navigation instructions. And, if you like your music as loud as your engine, there is an available Harmon Kardon audio system that stuffs 12 speakers and two subwoofers into the interior for a listening experience that is rivaled only by the Viper’s incredible performance.
The performance of the Dodge Viper has always centered around its massive V10 engine. In the 2017 Dodge Viper, the V10 displaces 8.4 liters and churns out an almost unbelievable 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, more torque than any other naturally aspirated sportscar engine available. The engine is linked to a heavy-duty and satisfying-to-use six-speed manual transmission. To back up the performance provided by the immense engine are massive vented and slotted Brembo brakes that ensure the Viper stops as well as it accelerates. Since the Dodge Viper is a sports car, straight line performance isn’t its only talent. Bilstein® dampers ensure the huge tires maintain contact with the road to deliver racecar levels of performance. There is even an adjustable suspension system available to provide a range of comfort or performance to suit your mood or environment. Where ever you look, the 2017 Dodge Viper remains a serious performance machine, ready to compete with the best of the best.
