Dodge: 2020 Charger GT AWD Delivers Year-Round Muscle

For the First Time, America’s Only Four-door Muscle Car Takes Charger GT’s Fierce Performance Exterior and Mixes It Up With All-weather Capable All-wheel Drive. The 2020 Dodge Charger GT all-wheel drive (AWD) features class-exclusive all-wheel-drive system with active transfer case and front-axle disconnect, delivering year-round performance combined with muscle car styling.

The award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine standard on Charger GT AWD, delivers 300 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and a responsive 264 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm, at a suggested retail price (MSRP) of $34,995 (excluding $1,495 destination charges). Dealer orders for the 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD open in January. Vehicles are scheduled to arrive in Dodge//SRT dealerships in the first quarter of 2020.

For the first time, the Charger GT AWD takes the Charger’s fierce performance exterior and features, including performance hood, fascia, sculpted side sills, spoiler, high-bolstered seats and performance steering wheel with paddle shifters, and mixes it up with all-weather capable all-wheel drive on America’s only four-door muscle car.

“Most people think of Chargers and Challengers as high-performance muscle cars, which clearly they are, but they can also be four-season capable AWD performance cars,” said Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo and Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “Only Dodge offers vehicles that combine practicality and all-weather driving confidence without sacrificing muscle car attitude.”

The new 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD joins the new Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Charger Scat Pack Widebody, as well as the Scat Pack, GT, SXT and SXT AWD, as Dodge continues to buck the trend in a shrinking sedan segment.

America’s Only Four-Door Muscle Car With AWD

All-wheel drive shouldn’t mean compromise for muscle car enthusiasts, and with a variety of standard convenient features and performance parts, the Charger GT AWD has tons to offer, all year long.

The Charger GT AWD features Dodge’s award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, which delivers 300 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and a responsive 264 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. It’s paired with the standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, offering up to an EPA-estimated 18 city/27 hwy miles per gallon (mpg). 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.

For all-weather traction all year long, the Charger GT AWD features P235/55R19 BSW all-season performance tires mounted on 19-inch aluminum wheels in a Satin Carbon finish, optional in Black Noise. Projector LED fog lamps, a performance rear spoiler, ParkSense rear park assist and ParkView rear backup camera are also standard equipment on the Charger GT AWD.

All-wheel-drive Confidence To Weather Any Storm

The Charger GT AWD seamlessly transitions between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with no driver intervention. For the driver who wants to engage the AWD system full-time, the Charger GT’s AWD system also can be activated for full-time engagement with the push of the Sport button.

For the enthusiast who truly values the rear-wheel-drive performance Charger delivers, the front wheels are 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 wheels, instantly transitioning Charger GT AWD into all-wheel-drive mode.

Enhanced with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), the Charger GT AWD has impressive handling on all surfaces, especially snow and slush. 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 with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system, VDC maintains fun-to-drive character of the Charger, regardless of road conditions.
