The Dodger Charger Sport AWD package, a Canadian option plan, will continue for 2014 Dodge Chargers. For C$1,195 on Charger SRT, or C$1,395 on Charger SXT/SXT Plus, buyers get a gloss black grille, 19 inch polished aluminum wheels with glossy black pockets, paddle shifters, transmission sport mode, Beats audio with ten speakers and 552-watt amp, body-color rear spoiler, and sport seats. V6 cars get boosted to an even 300 horsepower, as well.
The list price for the full package in the 2013 model year was C$37,090 for SXT Sport AWD. By comparison, the Ford Taurus SEL AWD was $891 cheaper, but had lower power and torque, a six-speed instead of an eight-speed, 18-inch wheels, no paddle shifters, lower gas mileage, and six-speaker audio.
The package can already be ordered, and is, for Chrysler Canada, the only AWD Charger that will be sold during its production run, expected to be from August to December 2013. Charger and 300 share a class-exclusive all wheel drive system that automatically disconnects the front axle when full traction is not needed, increasing gas mileage. (Thanks, RamMan.)
