It appears Dodge has just answered the bell in terms of all-wheel-drive sports cars in what looks to be a show stopper next year for the Michigan-based car manufacturer. The Challenger, which has been occupying the same wavelength as the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro long before we could discuss these rides online, will soon be offered in all-wheel-drive in hopes to accelerate their sales past these other two Goliath’s in the industry.
In addition to the upgraded drivetrain, the 2017 pony car will host a Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood, pushing out 305 horses and 268 pound-feet of torque. It’s all controlled via an eight-speed TorqueFlight automatic transmission as well. The new ride also rolls atop a set of 19-inch wheels wrapped in a set of all-season tires. Buyers will also enjoy an 8.4-inch touchscreen radio, Nappa leather interior, Alcantara suede seats, a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, and a performance steering wheel. It’s set to debut this January at the Detroit Auto Show and features a base price of $34,490.
