This is why the 2022 Dodge Charger GT AWD is one of our favorite picks!

As the only four-door muscle car on the market, the Dodge Charger continues to offer one of the most diverse lineups in the automotive industry. Basically the Swiss Army knife of the sedan market, the Charger can be ordered from a 300hp V6 with optional four-wheel drive (AWD) to an 807hp rear-wheel drive (RWD), making it the fastest, most powerful, mass-produced sedan in the world. .

While the latter appears to be out of reach for many, Dodge continues to improve its mid-range offering. In a world of high gas prices, record inflation and rising interest rates, the Charger soldiers continue to impress. And while the Hellcat Redeye may be a performance favorite, the V6-powered GT AWD remains our favorite daily driver of the lineup.

The 2022 Dodge Charger GT AWD delivers all-weather confidence, wrapped in the Charger’s signature muscle car attitude. Both the Charger GT RWD and AWD models feature the performance look of the Scat Pack models with a performance hood, dashboard, spoiler, high-reinforcement seats and a performance steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Under the hood is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, delivering 300 horsepower at 6,350 rpm and a responsive 264 lb.-ft. torque @ 4,800 rpm. The Pentastar is mated to the fast-shifting 8-speed TorqueFlite (850RE) automatic transmission, giving the full-sedan an EPA-estimated 18 MPG city/27 MPG hwy (12.4 l/100 km city/7.8 l/100 km). km highway). A tuned induction system and dual exhaust from the manifolds to the ends help to deliver over 90% of the engine’s peak torque from 1,800 to 6,400rpm – all for excellent driveability and responsiveness.

The Super Track Pak button activates Dodge Performance Pages and launch control functions built into the 8.4-inch touchscreen radio. Visible performance information, such as response times, 0 to 60 mph (0 to 96 km/h) times, G-force indicator and lap times, can be monitored and even mirrored in the 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT ) customizable cluster display. The Charger GT AWD model also features three-speed ESC and a “full-off” mode, a great feature for drifting through snowy or wet scenes.

The Charger GT’s AWD system features an active transfer case and a front axle decoupling system to improve real-world fuel economy. The AWD system seamlessly switches between RWD and AWD without driver intervention. When AWD is not required, the system automatically disengages the front axle to maximize fuel economy. When the front wheels are disengaged, 100% of the engine torque is directed to the rear wheels

Enhanced with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), the Charger GT AWD delivers impressive handling on all surfaces, especially on snow and slush. VDC provides excellent traction on slippery surfaces and also helps the driver maintain the desired vehicle path. By enhancing dynamic on-road performance using precise front-to-rear torque control integrated with the Electronic Stability Control System (ESC), VDC maintains the loader’s driving pleasure regardless of road conditions.
