Re: 2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-



I don't know... I like it but I also don't... I have a 75th so I'm biased in that I do like the new front end of my GC, but on the SRT it's a tougher call. I was never a fan of the "smiling" front end was happy to see the change come to the rest of the line though.

You know I usually embrace all refreshes after a bit but damn that 2017 front end is hideous.

I am not a fan. After they added Siri Eyes free to the old 8.4ANs and seeing what the new ones would look like, I've decided to keep my '14 for at least five years. Hope Stormtrooper doesn't mind, but this is the best looking front end:

I agree. It's not looking any better to me either. Hoping it looks better on the road and is now just suffering from bad photography angles!!

Anyone know if they confirmed that the radio system was updated on the 17? Any other cool changes other then the front?

Re: 2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-

Such a tough call. I'm torturing myself right now trying to figure out if I should pull the trigger on the 16' Night edition or order the 17'...I really can't decide.

I'm a latest and greatest guy when it comes to technology but I'm not seeing too many upgrades in that area on the 17'...only parallel park assist and lane assist. Is that correct?

Looks like the 17's don't have as much chrome pieces as the current so maybe a black out edition on the 17 isn't needed?

Looks like we will still have to replace the badges with black night edition badges though but grill rings ect. look black on the pre production test rigs.
