Dodge has introduced an all-wheel-drive option for the Dodge Charger GT, adding the AWD drivetrain to a higher trim level that will be sold alongside the existing SXT AWD package for the 2020 model year.
The Charger GT AWD is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 good for 300 horsepower and 264 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed automatic is the sole transmission, and the all-wheel-drive system features the familiar front-axle disconnect system to help save fuel by sending drive to the rear wheels only when grip levels are sufficient. This is all done automatically but the driver can activate a Sport mode that locks in the AWD.
While the GT doesn’t boast any extra performance over the SXT, it does come with styling that more closely resembles the V-8 models. We’re talking the performance hood, aggressive front and rear fascias, a small rear spoiler, and 19-inch aluminum wheels. The latter come wrapped in 235/55-size all-season tires.
There are numerous additional changes for the 2020 Charger lineup. Key among these is the new wide-body option on the top-end models. In addition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been made standard, and the color palette expanded with three new options, bringing the total to 12.
Dealers will be able to begin placing orders for the new 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD starting in January. The car will start at $34,995 MSRP before destination, taxes, and fees.
