19. Dodge Challenger GT AWD
What is the true definition of a muscle car? Is it a two-door coupe with a big V8 engine and rear-wheel drive? Perhaps, yet Dodge had a different vision. For decades, muscle cars were rear-wheel drive only vehicles. However, in 2016, Dodge introduced a special model from its Challenger lineup named the GT AWD.
It’s a Challenger with recognizable coupe styling, retro charm, and an aggressive stance. But underneath the cool-looking body, there’s a V6 and intelligent all-wheel-drive system. There are no more smoky burnouts and rear wheels on fire. Instead, there’s a ton of traction even in the toughest conditions. At the moment, the Dodge Challenger AWD is the only all-wheel-drive production muscle car that has been built. Ford and Chevrolet don’t have anything similar for the Mustang or Camaro. Unfortunately, Dodge only offers the GT AWD with the V6 engine. Although the V6 is relatively powerful with 305 HP, many Dodge fans still want it to be available with a Hemi V8.
