2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-

Just thought I would ask everyone to vote on looks alone. 2016 vs. 2017. I like the 2016 more but the 2017 is growing on me. Whats your vote and thoughts!?

I'm not crazy about the look of the 17', but I think it's just going to take some time to adjust. Resale will probably be better and it's got the new shifter so you'd escape that whole controversy. I say go for the 17'

At first I didn't like the '17 but it's starting to grow on me, too. IMO the fascia in the spy photos isn't as muscular looking as earlier models, but has a refined look.

I'll miss the bumper LED light bars as, for me, they've always visually set the SRT(8) apart from the other GC models.

Re: 2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-

I'm still not sure how I feel about the 17, so at this point I will vote 16. I love the look of the 16 model and I'm sure the 17 will grow on me in time. I need to see better pictures of the 17 model rather than the spy shots and seeing it in person will most likely change my opinion big time.

2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-

2017. I'm always more interested in what's the latest and greatest, though.

Probably not many 2014-16 SRT owners are going to vote for 17.

2014-2016 they screwed up the 2017 front looks hideous. Side and rear are the same. I guess I just saved a bunch of money!

The front of the 14-16 was screwed up, although not as much lol I never understood the situation with the drls. It's like that all was an afterthought

Lol I'm 23. I wouldn't say it's the sexiest, but it is very good looking.

I think the front on the 17 looks fantastic.

Re: 2016 SRT vs 2017 SRT -VOTE!-

Since I am buying a '17 or '18, I am voting for the newer version......

2016's have the new shifter also, and voting for the 2017 loved the 2014+ but the black plastic filler panels under the headlights and the large smiling body line between the grill and bumper is what was holding back our order since 2014. Loving the '17 refresh hope it looks great in person also should be able to post some pictures around early Oct.
