New England drivers are accustomed to the fact that muscle cars aren’t the most practical vehicle for year-round driving. But with the new 2017 Dodge Challenger GT coupe, the rules have changed. This muscle car is ready for life in the fast lane, all year long. Complete with an all-wheel-drive powertrain and suspension used on the Charger Pursuit police car, the 2017 Challenger GT delivers the high-performance you crave, with the capabilities that you need.

Depending on road conditions, torque is adjusted to the rear wheels, or distributed amongst all four wheels. Enhancing traction when the road gets slick or wet, the 2017 Challenger GT has an active transfer case with front axle disconnect to step up and adjust the power that goes to each wheel, maximizing the vehicle’s grip on the road. The ® 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine pumps out 305 horsepower, and the 8-speed TorqueFlite® automatic transmission makes acceleration smooth, while Vehicle Dynamic Control works in conjunction with stability and traction control to maximize the all-wheel drive functionality of the coupe.

“Vehicle Dynamic Control allows us to enhance traction in wet and dry conditions, allows us to maintain stability control of the vehicle and, more importantly, allows us to maintain the rear-wheel-drive fun-to-drive character of the Challenger,” states Mike Gapski, technical manager of the Dodge Challenger AWD system.
