The new Dodge Charger AWD Sport will come in four different versions based on the XT, SXT Plus, R/T and R/T plus versions of the current two-wheel drive Charger. The SXT based models will feature the powerful Pentastar 3.6L V6 that was honored as one of Ward’s “10 Best Engines.” This engine is rated at 300 hp, while the R/T performance variant receives the immense 5.7L Hemi V8 that can produce an impressive 370 hp and comes equipped with fuel-saving cylinder deactivation technology so it can run on only four-cylinders in order to conserve gas during light loads.
Even the SXT-based Sport models improve horsepower over the two-wheel drive version due to tuned dual sport exhausts and an upgraded air intake system. Sport models will also receive a gloss black grille and 19-inch polished wheels along with all-season tires. Shifting duties will be handled by a automatic transmission with wheel mounted paddle shifters.
Snowbound driving will be improved through the use of an active transfer case. Fuel economy and handling will also be improved with a front-axle disconnect that can allow the Charger Sport to power only two wheels in good driving conditions. This Charger should arrive at Dodge dealerships like Knight Dodge in Swift Current in the first half of 2013.
