The New All-Wheel-Drive Challenger GT is Coming
Recently the Environmental Protection Agency accidentally released fuel economy figures for the Dodge Challenger GT, confirming that the muscle car’s all-wheel-drive version will soon be joining the Dodge roster.

A Dodge Challenger GT fitted with a 3.6-liter V6 and eight-speed automatic was listed with a fuel economy of 18 mpg city, 27 highway and 21 combined. While these ratings are lower than the standard rear-wheel-drive Dodge Challenger’s of 19 mpg city, 30 highway and 23 combined, this is to be expected since all-wheel drive systems typically increase fuel consumption.
The V6 engine, rated at 305 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque, will be exclusive to the Challenger GT. It’s believed, though not yet confirmed, that the Challenger GT will feature the same wide-body design as the rumored Challenger ADR with Hellcat power.
