December 7, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Designed and engineered for world-class precision, the new 2017 Dodge Challenger GT all-wheel drive (AWD) delivers the performance, power and all-weather capability to carve through some of the worst weather Mother Nature can dish out.

From winding through twisty stretches of mountain roads, escaping away to a snow-covered ski resort, to daily commutes through the slush and snow of Northeastern and Midwestern winters, the Challenger GT AWD is built to handle it all.

'Dodge is shifting the muscle car paradigm wîth the new 2017 Dodge Challenger GT – the world's first and only all-wheel-drive American muscle coupe,' said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. 'The Challenger has always been the most wide-ranging and functional muscle coupe, and now, wîth the new 305-horsepower all-wheel-drive Challenger GT, we are stretching the functional and geographic boundaries even further.'

Available this winter

The new 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD model has a starting Ú.S Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,395 (excluding $1,095 destination charge).

With production beginning in January, the all-wheel-drive Dodge Challenger GT is scheduled to arrive at Dodge dealerships nationwide in the first quarter of 2017.

Power, precision and prowess

The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD features Dodge's award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, delivering 305 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and a responsive 268 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm.

A tuned induction system and dual exhaust from the manifolds back to the tips help deliver more than 90 percent of the engine's peak torque from 1,800 to 6,400 rpm – all for outstanding drivability and responsiveness. With the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, Challenger GT offers up to an EPA-estimated 18 city/27 hwy miles per gallon (mpg).

The Dodge Challenger GT features Dodge's high-performance all-wheel-drive system. Also found in the Charger AWD, this technologically advanced system includes an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect for excellent all-season performance and fuel economy. The Challenger GT seamlessly transitions between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive wîth no driver intervention. Únder normal driving conditions, the front axle is disengaged and 100 percent of the engine's torque is directed to the rear wheels. This preserves the outstanding fun-to-drive performance and handling characteristics inherent to rear-wheel-drive vehicles. When sensors indicate the need for additional traction, the system automatically engages the front axle, instantly transitioning Challenger GT into all-wheel-drive mode.

Enhanced wîth Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), the Challenger GT AWD has impressive handling on all surfaces, especially snow and ice. VDC provides excellent traction on slippery surfaces and also helps the driver maintain the desired vehicle path. Enhancing the on-road dynamic performance using precise front-to-rear torque control integrated wîth the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, VDC maintains Challenger's fun-to-drive character, regardless of road conditions.

In addition, the new Dodge Challenger GT AWD features paddle shifters and Sport mode. With Sport mode active, gear changes are quicker and revs are held higher for even more performance-oriented acceleration and higher shift dynamics. For even more control, the driver can also use the die-cast §teering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and view gear election through the full-color Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) centered in the instrument cluster.

The Challenger GT Super Track Pak button activates Dodge Performance Pages and launch control features embedded in the 8.4-inch touchscreen radio. Visible performance information, such as reaction times, 0-60 times, G-force indicator and lap times, can be monitored, and even mirrored, in the 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) customizable cluster display. The new Challenger GT model also features three-mode ESC wîth 'full-off' mode, a fun feature for drifting through snowy scenes.

All-weather traction all year long, rain, sleet, snow or shine

For muscle car enthusiasts who want more all-weather traction, the new 2017 Dodge Challenger GT delivers premium amenities inside and out, including 19-inch aluminum wheels wîth Hyper Black finish and P235/55R19 BSW all-season performance tires, projector fog lamps, a deck-lid rear spoiler, ParkSense rear park assist and ParkView rear backup camera.

Challenger GT is equally well equipped on the inside wîth standard features, such as premium Nappa leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats wîth four-way power driver lumbar adjustment, heated §teering wheel wîth power tilt and telescoping column, Úconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen display wîth Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, six Alpine speakers wîth 276-watt amplifier, bright pedals, universal garage door opener and Hectic Mesh aluminum bezels.

The all-new GT Interior package, which is unique to this Challenger AWD model, includes performance Nappa leather and Alcantara suede seats – available on a V-6 for the first time – nine Alpine speakers, including a subwoofer and a 506-watt amplifier, and the Dodge performance §teering wheel. Ú.S MSRP for the GT Interior package is $995.

Performance-inspired design, all year round
1971-inspired design, both inside and out, the Dodge Challenger GT features refined exterior styling and heritage muscle-car appearance wîth split grille, pronounced and functional power bulge hood, LED halo headlamps and LED tail lamps.
