Challenger GT becomes first AWD American muscle coupe

July 11, 2017 – Dodge has opted to fit BorgWarner's Torque-On-Demand transfer case with vehicle dynamic control (VDC) technology on its 2017 and 2018 model Dodge Challenger GTs powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. The automaker claims the V6 Challenger GT will thus become the first American muscle coupe with all-wheel drive (AWD).

BorgWarner’s Torque-On-Demand transfer case – also fitted to the in the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 models – employs electro-magnetic actuation to automatically transition between RWD and AWD on demand with no driver input. The VDC technology uses available sensor inputs, including yaw rate, lateral acceleration and steering wheel angle, to redistribute the driveline torque to the wheels.



In sport mode, the VDC technology works with less aggressive brake-based stability control settings while still retaining the mobility of AWD and the safety of dynamic stability control. When AWD is not needed, the front axle automatically disconnects to improve fuel economy.
