In the current Challenger that engine makes 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. It’s unknown whether power will be increased but we suspect both the RWD and AWD versions will have identical outputs. What we do know is that the Challenger GT will weigh more thanks to having the tech needed to send power to all four wheels. A redesign is said to be coming in 2019, with the next Challenger sitting on a new and lighter platform
. The Challenger GT will certainly need to be put on a diet as it could weigh over two tons when all is said and done; the base model SXT already tips the scales at 3,885 pounds. So, what do we make of this move? Well, it could backfire horribly or work really well. There's really no middle ground here.
