The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT could finally end that ongoing fiery debate between you and that special someone in your life. You know, the mature voice that’s always pressuring you to buy something sensible, practical, and affordable. Basically, the complete antithesis of just about any muscle car, including the Challenger GT.
But add in an all-wheel drive and pony up for some extra safety features, and you’ll have yourself the makings of a 305-horsepower performance car that’s shockingly sensible.
We know that die-hard fans are going to complain about the V6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission. (No, you can’t get a Hemi. And no, you can’t get a manual gearbox.) For most car buyers, however, those aren’t deal breakers. In fact, the grip and torque, as well as the relatively modest sticker price and decent fuel mileage on the Challenger GT make it the best choice for a wide spectrum of shoppers.
