Begs the question....why?So, how long till these get Hemi's and lift kits with some big meats underneath??:smile:
Slow sales were supposedly what killed the AWD/V8 offerings in the Charger and 300. Based on that, I doubt they will bring it back just for the Challenger.
That was an option though only available to police in the police package. That would cut the number of possible sales greatly. I know it was offered to the general public for a while but it was my understanding you had to pick the police package to get the 5.7 with AWD.
I'd like to see a numbers breakdown and they might be surprising, I remember Tim Kuniskis saying the AWD Charger outsells the RWD Charger in 19 states.AWD for the Charger or Challenger with a V6 is already available and it sells in pretty small numbers. Dodge is probably correct if they assume the majority of buyers of AWD really just want SUVs anyway not a Coupe.
Nah not buying that. If durability would allow them to release the horses it would scream. Imagine a Widebody Redeye on launch control at 3500 rpm and no traction issues, it would make up for those 200-300 lbs easily.Slower
I was replying to Frank asking what the times would be with AWD.5364 lbs. How could a AWD Hellcat be slower?
Yeah, can't say I'm surprised. There are lot's of AWD examples out there that provide a clue to anyone who doubts that on the street an AWD Hell Cat would DEMOLISH a RWD Hell Cat with incredible ease.
....and that's the other side of the argument.I was replying to Frank asking what the times would be with AWD.
Times means timing lights which mean a drag strip. I’ve seen plenty of Hellcats at the drag strip launch incredibly hard without wheelspin. So adding a couple hundred lbs, most of which are to the drivetrain won’t make a car faster at all that isn’t losing traction to begin with. Now if you are arguing about the street then that’s obviously a completely different story.
I think it would be an awesome option if you could turn it off when you want to.
I personally would never want a 800hp car where I couldn’t do a burnout or come out of a corner and let the rear step out a couple of feet once in a while.
