At last year’s SEMA show, Fiat Chrysler unveiled an all-wheel drive version of the Dodge Challenger called the Challenger GT AWD. Consumer response to the concept must have been positive, because FCA is planning on launching an AWD Dodge Challenger before year’s end, Automotive News reports.
The AWD Challenger, which is to be called the GT AWD, will arrive this fall. It will be available exclusively with Dodge’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V6.
More excitingly, a widebody Challenger Hellcat variant called the Challenger ADR is also rumored to arrive before the end of 2017. AN offers very little info on this model, but it’s safe to assume it will have more performance on tap than the current Hellcat.
By 2018 FCA will move the Challenger and Charger off of the aging LX platform and migrate them to the Giorgio platform that currently underpins the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Shortly after in 2021, a two-door ‘Barracuda’ convertible based on the Giorgio platform will arrive.
