All-Wheel Drive Dodge Challenger Hellcat Planned for 2017

All-Wheel Drive Dodge Challenger Hellcat Planned for 2017

Sep 06, 2016

Before they move over to a lighter platform, Dodge’s muscle cars are in for a few changes, the largest of which is an all-wheel drive system for the Challenger.

In 2018, both of Dodge’s famous muscle cars will move over to FCA’s new Giorgio platform, helping the Charger and Challenger drop 400 and 500 pounds respectively, despite staying the same size. This platform change was originally planned for 2017, though the delay doesn’t mean that FCA is leaving the cars untouched.

According to Automotive News we will see an all-wheel drive Challenger introduced before the end of 2016 known as the GT AWD model, a car that was teased at the 2015 SEMA Show as a concept. In its final year before moving away from its current platform, a widebody all-wheel drive Challenger with the 707-horsepower Hellcat V8 under the hood will be introduced, badged as the Challenger ADR.

As for the Charger, no major changes are planned besides some special edition models, including a new Charger Daytona that will debut before the end of this year.

The Dodge Barracuda, which will be a two-door convertible also based on the Giorgio platform, is still in the works, though it isn’t expected to be released until 2021.
