Dodge Challenger GT AWD
The definition of a muscle car is a two-door coupe with a big V8 engine and rear wheel drive, but Dodge has a different vision. For decades, muscle cars were rear-wheel drive only vehicles. However, in 2016 Dodge introduced a special model in its Challenger lineup they called the GT AWD. It was a Challenger with recognizable coupe styling, retro charm and an aggressive stance.
But underneath the cool-looking body, there is a V6 and intelligent all-wheel drive system. Instead of smoky burnouts and rear wheels on fire, it had loads of traction, even in the toughest of conditions.
At that time the Dodge Challenger AWD was the only all-wheel drive production muscle car they ever built. Ford and Chevrolet didn’t have anything similar for the Mustang or Camaro. Unfortunately, Dodge offered the GT AWD with a V6 engine, and even though the V6 is powerful, producing 305 HP, car fans wish it was available with a proper Hemi V8.
