Usually a muscle car is rear wheel drive. Is part of its DNA to be like that. But there are moments when you would like to have some fun out in the middle of nowhere, eventually playing in the snow. For those times Dodge just announced the Charger GT all-wheel drive. The car features a class-exclusive all-wheel-drive system with active transfer case and front-axle disconnect.
This transfer car will help the driver to engage the AWD system full-time just with the push of the Sport button. As standard feature the front wheels are disengaged and 100 percent of the engine’s torque is directed to the rear wheels. But when special sensor indicated that additional traction is needed, the system automatically engages the front wheels, instantly transitioning Charger GT AWD into all-wheel-drive mode.
The new Charger GT AWD is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, which delivers 300 horsepower and 264 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission and ensures a fuel economy of 18 mpg on city driving and 27 mpg on the highway. However, if you decide to get naughty behind the wheel, things will of course change.
No changes where made on the exterior, so you will easily recognize the 2020 Charger it is based on. It will have the standard performance hood, front and rear fascias, sculpted side sills and a rear spoiler. The car will ride on 19-inch aluminum wheels painted in a Satin Carbon finish as standard, or optional in Black Noise.
The 2020 Charger GT AWD will go on sale in January, 2020 at a price of $34,995.
