You Can Order A New 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD Next Month

The new 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD adds visual muscle and another rare AWD option in the segment.

  • It joins the Charger SXT AWD in showrooms in the 1st quarter of 2020.
  • The AWD system features an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect.
  • The Charger GT will be delivered with the 300-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6.

In the large sedan segment, the rare buyers have very few options when it comes to choices. Among the limited nameplates, for the moment, only the Dodge Charger offers an AWD alternative, that is until the Toyota Avalon introduces its AWD version later in 2020. In the meantime, FCA and Dodge are introducing a second variation of the AWD Charger in the GT.

Dodge launched the Challenger GT a few years ago and introduced the more affordable SXT iteration shortly thereafter. In the Charger family, Dodge started with the SXT and are now launching the GT trim with its series of visual adornments.

The 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD will be distinguished by its performance hood, prominent fascia, sculpted side sills, 19-inch alloy wheels and rear spoiler. The cabin gains highly-bolstered seats and performance steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Although Dodge refers the Charger four-door muscle car, which applies in numerous cases, the statement is not entirely accurate with the GT. Its 300-horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, and 264 lb.-ft. of torque, are adequate but unless the drag race occurs on a snowy surface against a FWD Toyota Camry V6, it will be shamed quickly enough.

The AWD system features an active transfer case and front-axle disconnect for a dynamic RWD experience until road surfaces require the added traction provided by the front wheels.
