    Made an offer on a 2016 challenger hellcat.which by the way did not let me test drive some rule here in canada.

    Curious as to if i should buy the 2016 or 2017 for a 7000$ Canadian price saving

    New badge on the back, new logo on the front seats, the SRT icon on the steering wheel has a red light around it, new oil dipstick, new 5 spoke standard wheels, new colors, different infotainment operating system. Zero mechanical differences

    Yup. It's 10mm taller than the previous models (I'm talking Challenger).

    The nav display is a little nicer on the 2017
    but I think $7000 difference makes a NEW 2016 a much better buy. There are a lot of 2016 hellcat challengers on the lots in the GTA
    especially if you want Pitch Black. You can likely get another thousand or two off the price right now it's not unusual that the dealership doesn't do test drives on new hellcats. If it's used that's a different storyb

    2017 also dropped the mass air flow sensor.

    Looked at them side by side and like the wheels better on my new 16, did not notice this info system. Dealers have much more factory motivation / bigger discounts to move 16s.

    Laredo Texas Dodge Dealer on their website lists all 2016 Hellcats at $10,000 off MSRP. I realize this is not possible but they show more than 6 cars and list the vin's. I did not make the 3 hour drive and bought locally at 5k off MSRP yesterday but for the astute bargain hunter 10k off in Laredo may need some investigation.

    Not much difference except what some already mentioned. I want to see the m6 price vs '16.
