Dodge Challenger GT AWD
What’s the definition of a muscle car? A two-door coupe with a big V8 engine and rear-wheel drive? Well, Dodge had a different vision. For decades, muscle cars were rear-wheel drive-only vehicles. But in 2016, Dodge introduced a special model in its Challenger lineup called the GT AWD (via Dodge).
The car is a Challenger with recognizable styling, retro charm, and an aggressive stance. But underneath the cool-looking body, there is a V6 and an intelligent all-wheel drive system. There are no more smoky burnouts and rear wheels on fire. Instead, now there is loads of traction even in the toughest conditions. At the moment, Dodge Challenger AWD is the only all-wheel drive production muscle car ever built, and Ford and Chevrolet don’t have anything similar for the Mustang or Camaro. Unfortunately, Dodge offers the GT AWD only with the V6 engine. Even though the V6 is pretty powerful at 305 HP, we still wish it were available with a proper Hemi V8.
