On the road show
All-wheel-drive Challenger GT Confirmed
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed the upcoming Dodge Challenger GT by posting fuel economy figures for the all-wheel-drive model of the muscle car. According to FuelEconomy.gov, the Challenger GT (which will come with the 3.6 liter V6 when it’s released), is rated to get 18 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway. Making the vehicle rated at 21 miles per gallon. These figures are slightly lower than the rear-wheel-drive Challenger with the same engine, which gets 19 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway.
Previous reports have hinted that Dodge is planning to release the all-wheel-drive Challenger GT in 2017 (even though the automaker hasn’t confirmed this… yet). What you see above is Mopar’s all-wheel-drive concept from last year’s SEMA Show. With the EPA putting out the vehicles official fuel economy ratings, we can conclude the car is definitely coming.
Of course, we’re still hoping that the so-called Challenger ADR we saw in AutoBlog‘s spy photos means we’ll see all wheel drive with Hellcat power. Check it out:
