Dodge has long been one of America’s biggest, best known and most beloved automotive car maker. For decades, Dodge has made a huge mark in the automotive world with amazing cars known for speed, power, style and comfort. One of Fiat Chrysler Automotive’s most iconic cars is the Dodge Challenger. Americans have been in love with the Challenger for years and have been waiting with bated breath for the latest version of the popular car. Well the wait is over, and Challenger lovers are in for a major surprise that’s sure to be appreciated. The 2017 Dodge Challenger will feature all-wheel drive.

The Rumor Is True

About a month ago, there was a rumor reported by Road and Track that FCA was going to release an all-wheel drive version of the Dodge Challenger. That rumor was accidentally confirmed recently by the Environmental Protection Agency. A visit to the EPA website shows the agency has posted a range of details about what can be expected on the 2017 Dodge Challenger. This unexpected revelation has led to lots of excitement and inquiries to Dodge dealers about when the public will have an opportunity to see and test-drive this newest version of the Dodge Challenger. While the EPA revelation may not have been FCA’s plan, car enthusiasts were glad to get the information.

A Select Portion

While the EPA website has divulged helpful information for the Dodge Challenger loving segment of the public, the data released shows that the changes in the 2017 Dodge Challenger come with a catch. That catch is not all the 2017 Dodge Challenger GTs will feature all-wheel drive. According to the information provided in the EPA report, only the Dodge Challenger models that have the V6 3.6-liter engine will feature all-wheel drive initially. However, that may change as production of this beloved automobile continues to be ramped up.

The New Specifications

Although all-wheel drive is the feature that most Dodge Challenger lovers are anticipating most anxiously, the 2017 models offers many more intriguing specifications that they are sure to love. Courtesy of Autoblog, the source of the confirmation of the information about Dodge’s 2017 Challenger GT, it was also revealed the vehicle will produce a fuel efficiency rate that offers about 18 miles per gallon when the vehicles traverses city streets and a whopping 27 miles per gallon when it hits the highway. That gives the vehicle a combined rate that’s a very respectable 21 miles per gallon. Check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas, and you are sure to fall in love with the new rear wheel drive version.

The Rear-Wheel Drive Advantage

For people who choose the 2017 Dodge Challenger that is equipped with the same V6 3.6-liter engine but opt for the rear-wheel drive model, the Autoblog report noted that the mileage that vehicle gets is even better. The report states that the rear-wheel drive version of the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT gets as much as 19 miles per gallon in city driving and a record of 30 miles per gallon in highway driving. No matter which version of the new Challenger you choose, expect improved fuel-efficiency.
