2017 Dodge Challenger GT Performance Features and Specs
Drivers who want a thrilling driving experience no matter what road they’re on will certainly have the 2017 Dodge Challenger near the top of their list. The Challenger delivers performance features and specs that make any drive a blast, but now Dodge is expanding the Challenger lineup with a new GT model that is changing the game for American muscle cars.
Dodge Challenger GT AWD System
The new 2017 Challenger GT is the world’s first and only AWD American muscle coupe. It may come as a surprise that such a high-performance segment has never offered AWD, but Dodge is changing that fact with this class-exclusive capability.
The AWD system is the same award-winning system found in the Dodge Charger AWD and can switch from RWD to AWD without the need for driver intervention thanks to sensors that detect the need for additional traction. The system also has an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect. Better yet, though the Challenger GT with AWD is a new addition to the lineup, Dodge has already begun production on the model.
More Challenger GT Performance Features and Capabilities
The power directed by the Challenger GT’s AWD system comes from a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and amounts to 305 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and 268 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,800 rpm. Moreover, a tuned induction system and dual exhaust from the manifolds back to the tips allows over 90% of the engine’s peak torque to be available to the driver between 1,800 and 6,400 rpm.
The model comes equipped with paddle shifters and a Sport mode so that drivers can get even more thrill out of their vehicle. In Sport mode, gear changes will be quicker and revs will be held higher, but the paddle shifters will allow drivers to take complete control over transmission shifts. For drivers who like to take their car to the track, a Track Pak button will provide performance information on an 8.4-inch touchscreen that includes 0 – 60 times, G-forces and lap times.
