It's V-8 muscle wîth all-wheel drive. Yes, you read that right. The Dodge Challenger GT AWD Concept is a one-of-a-kind, year-round muscle car that lets you have your cake and eat it too, combining wickedly fast power and performance wîth the confidence of increased traction.

Mopar stepped outside its usual color palette in designing the Dodge Challenger GT AWD Concept, choosing Header Orange highlights to line the grille and taillight surround of the Destroyer Grey body. Header Orange continues as a distinct contrast point for the Destroyer Grey body color stripe that runs through the Matte Black paint blanketing the upper portion of the vehicle, from tip to rear. Mirror caps are also painted wîth Header Orange accent stripes.

The Challenger GT AWD Concept enhances its signature muscle car proportions, bulging out wîth Mopar's concept wide body kit and its massive wheel flares housing concept Mopar five-spoke wheels: 20-inch x 10-inch on the front and 20-inch x 11-inch on the rear. Mopar center caps are painted to match the body and wheels.

The body kit compliments Challenger's heritage-inspired styling, adding an aggressive profile wîth a front chin splitter and rear spoiler, which are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Additional Mopar modifications dress up the rear, including quad Mopar exhaust tips painted in a powder-coated Satin Black, a Mopar fuel filler door painted Satin Black wîth a unique Mopar graphic and a concept Mopar Design decklid badge.

The interior takes cues from the exterior, wîth Header Orange stitching embellishing the rich Katzkin leather seats, center console, shifter boot and side panels. The Katzkin seats are also upgraded wîth medium taupe suede inserts. Additional control is gained for navigating tight corners wîth a flat-bottom §teering wheel. Mopar door sill guards wîth the Challenger logo and a trunk mat round out the interior.

The vehicle's 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine uses an AWD package to power all four wheels, paired wîth an eight-speed transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) The 5.7-liter engine is upgraded wîth the Scat Pack 3 Performance Kit, which delivers a boost of up to 75 more horsepower and an additional 44 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Scat Pack 3 Performance Kit maximizes gains achieved by the Scat Pack 1 and Scat Pack 2 kits by adding new Mopar Performance CNC-ported cylinder heads, Mopar hi-flow manifolds and hi-flow catalysts, a gasket set, exhaust manifolds, exhaust adapter, mounting brackets, hardware and two Scat Pack 3 badges. The Scat Pack 3 kit — as wîth Scat Pack 1 and 2 — boosts performance while maintaining the factory warranty.

A concept Mopar suspension kit drops the Challenger GT AWD Concept closer to the road, lowering the vehicle's center of gravity for race-inspired handling, wîth an assist from production Mopar performance front and rear strut tower braces.
