2017 Dodge Challenger GT all-wheel-drive model debuts
The 2017 Dodge Challenger is now available in an all-wheel-drive version in North America. The unusual move (for a muscle car) is aimed at potential buyers from snowy climates.
Called the Challenger GT, it only comes with the 305 hp ‘Pentastar’ 3.6-litre V6 with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive system will not be offered with V8 engine options or manual gearboxes. Which means the Hellcat will still be dumping all its 707 horses onto the tarmac in a cloud of tyre-smoke rather than taking on the Nissan GT-R.
The GT will be on display in January at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. It is unlikely to be offered in the UAE and GCC.
