Challenger GT really is AWD

by David Zatz on

Anyone can put stickers on the outside of a car, or hack together a system that works but isn’t production ready — so is the Dodge Challenger GT really an all wheel drive car that they could build?

Not surprisingly, since they already make an all wheel drive Dodge Charger using a similar platform and the same powertrain, it is.  Patrick Rall was able to look under the body and wrote that the all wheel drive system looked neat and clean, even production-ready.

In addition to all wheel drive, Mopar added their Scat Pack Stage 3 setup to increase the power levels by 75 horsepower and 44 lb-ft of torque, put in the braking setup from the Charger Pursuit, a sport suspension, wider wheels, and a widebody kit that allows the huge tires to stay inside of the sheet metal. There is also a suspension drop kit to lower the center of gravity, accompanied by front and shock rear tower braces. See more on the SEMA Dodge concepts page.
