Dodge announces Sport package for AWD Charger

 

From Dodge.com

With Old Man winter around the corner, Dodge is launching the all-new 2013 Dodge Charger AWD Sport just in time to deliver tactical performance and efficiency to combat the most inclement driving conditions. The Charger’s new AWD Sport package delivers two powerful engines delivering up to 370 horsepower, the segment’s most advanced all-wheel-drive system for best-in-class V-6 fuel economy, new “blacked out” exterior accents for a menacing look, and first-time available to Charger AWD paddle-shifters with “sport mode” for precision worthy of its legendary nameplate.

“With the instant success of the sinister-styled Charger Blacktop, the new Charger AWD Sport delivers a similar aggressive look with the added capability of all-wheel drive,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO- Dodge Brand. “The new Charger AWD Sport offers the unmistakable combination of up to 370 horsepower, the most sophisticated all-wheel-drive system in its class, best-in-class V-6 fuel efficiency, and a style that sets it apart from any other car on the road, all at an amazing value.”

Orders for the 2013 Dodge Charger AWD are open now. Vehicles will be built at the Brampton (Ont.) Assembly plant from December through February.

New design and performance features never previously offered on Charger AWD models

Building on the success of the rear-wheel drive and blacked-out styled Dodge Charger Blacktop – an enthusiast-desired package that has accounted for up to 25 percent of Charger SXT sales – the new 2013 Dodge Charger AWD Sport provides a new frontier for the Dodge brand to expand the ominous style, world-class performance and enthusiast-desired technologies into the Charger AWD model range.

The new 2013 Dodge Charger AWD Sport is available on the Dodge Charger SXT and SXT Plus AWD models for a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP) of just $1,395 and Charger R/T and R/T Plus AWD models for just $1,195. The Charger AWD Sport package offers added value with a 40 percent package savings discount and includes a unique Gloss Black painted split-crosshair grille and grille surround, 19-inch polished aluminum wheels with Gloss Black pockets, all-season performance tires, the first application of steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters and sport mode transmission calibration in a Charger AWD, rear body-color spoiler and sport seats in black cloth (SXT and R/T), or premium black or red heated Nappa leather (SXT Plus and R/T Plus).

In addition, the new Dodge Charger AWD Sport features the Beats Audio technology with a powerful 12-channel amplifier that integrates the heart of the Beats proprietary equalizer algorithm, creating the high-definition sound required in professional recording studios. Delivering the mid- to high-range needed for studio-quality sound are three 3.5-inch speakers located in the instrument panel and two 3.5-inch speakers located in the rear doors. Two 6 x 9-inch front-door woofers deliver bass, while two 6 x 9-inch speakers and a center-mounted 8-inch speaker located in the rear-shelf area provide full-range audio. Maximizing how music genres from hip hop to Motown should sound and feel, an 8-inch Beats Audio trunk-mounted dual-voice coil subwoofer with sealed enclosure delivers tight, powerful, punchy bass.

More power, precision and prowess

From winding through twisty stretches of mountain roads, to escaping away to a snow-covered ski resort, the 2013 Dodge Charger AWD Sport has a commanding design presence and the power and all-weather capability to carve through some of the worst precipitation Mother Nature can dish out.

The 2013 Dodge Charger AWD Sport (based on Charger SXT and SXT Plus models) features the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine – now with 300 horsepower thanks to the addition of a new sport-tuned dual exhaust system and cold-air induction system. Even with the added performance, the aluminum mill still delivers best-in-class city and highway fuel economy (18/27 mpg). For drivers who demand even more performance, the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine with 370 horsepower, 395 lb-ft of torque and four-cylinder mode Fuel Saver Technology, the Dodge Charger AWD Sport also can be configured from the Charger R/T and R/T Plus models.

Both V-6 and V-8 models feature the segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system to improve real-world fuel economy. No other major automotive manufacturer offers the combination of these two independent technologies. The AWD system in the Dodge Charger AWD Sport seamlessly transitions between rear-wheel drive and AWD with no driver intervention. When AWD is not required, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to maximize fuel economy while still providing the outstanding fun-to-drive performance and handling inherent in rear-wheel-drive vehicles.

In addition, the new Dodge Charger AWD Sport features paddle shifters and “sport mode.” With Sport Mode active, gear changes are quicker and revs are held higher for even more performance-oriented acceleration and higher shift dynamics. For even more control, the driver can also use the die-cast steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and view gear election through the full-color EVIC centered in the Dodge Charger AWD Sport’s instrument cluster.

Advanced AWD system offered on Dodge Charger Pursuit

September 13, 2012 Auburn Hills, Mich.– Dodge is turning up the heat in the police pursuit vehicle segment. In response to police fleet customer demand and with input from the Chrysler Group’s Police Advisory Board, the already well-received Dodge Charger Pursuit will offer an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system with the 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine.

“Adding available all-wheel-drive capability to the already popular Dodge Charger Pursuit will broaden the Charger’s appeal to police departments that are accustomed to dealing with rough winters and adverse weather conditions,” said Peter Grady, Vice President – Network Development & Fleet, Chrysler Group LLC. “With the Charger Pursuit now offering dual capability of both rear- and all-wheel-drive, we’ll be able to meet the needs of our police fleet customers across the country.”

The Dodge Charger’s AWD system features a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle-disconnect system that better balances performance and fuel economy.

“The Dodge Charger offers the most sophisticated all-wheel-drive system in its class,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “Only Charger offers a front-axle disconnect that seamlessly transitions from the outstanding performance and handling of rear-wheel drive to the all-weather traction of all-wheel drive, with class-leading fuel economy and iconic styling.”

Chrysler Group engineers have already started testing the Dodge Charger Pursuit with the AWD system. The vehicle will meet the police pursuit durability cycle set for RWD models that ensures the car can reliably handle the extreme conditions seen in police use. Police fleet customers will be able to start ordering the Dodge Charger Pursuit with AWD for the 2014 model year.
