As previously announced, Dodge is giving the Charger GT an update for the 2020 model year. The performance car is also set to join the automaker’s all-wheel-drive car lineup, which is currently composed of the Charger SXT AWD, Challenger SXT AWD, and Challenger GT AWD.
But the new Charger GT AWD is keeping the same six-cylinder engine used in its current generation–a 300-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The company also confirmed that there will be no V8 options available for the AWD cars, thereby closing the doors on zero-to-60 mph times.
The all-wheel-drive system, meanwhile, will include an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect that allows the vehicle to switch between rear- and all-wheel drive.
On top of the AWD setup, the upcoming Charger is also getting some of the model’s “performance” exterior features such as a hood scoop, more aggressive front bumper, wider fenders, a rear spoiler, high-bolstered seats, and paddle shifters.
The car will also come with a Sport mode that gives the driver the option to go full-time AWD and make quicker shifts, as well as Dodge’s Performance Pages with launch control activation. All-season tires in 19-inch satin carbon wheels, LED fog lamps, rear park assist, and a backup camera complete list of standard equipment, but the black noise-finished wheels are optional to customers.
The 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD is set to arrive at dealership lots early next year with prices starting at $36,490.
