2017 Dodge Challenger GT: ‘The first American muscle coupe’

Here’s the automotive question of the day: Who wouldn’t want to slide around on snow-covered roads at about 100 mph?

Answer: Everybody.

Nonetheless, Dodge is introducing for 2017 “the first and only all-wheel drive American muscle coupe,” complete with a 30-second TV ad showing the 2017 Challenger GT happily fishtailing, sluicing and four-wheel drifting at roaringly high speeds over snow-slick roads.

The commercial’s large-print legend: “America’s only all-wheel-drive muscle coupe”; the commercial’s fine-print advisory: “Professional driver. Closed course. Do not attempt. Always drive consistent with conditions.”

More proof the old saying is true: Read the fine print.

Set to go into production in January, it’s intriguing this car, with all its bravado, is offered only with Challenger’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6. Not that we’re complaining — 305 hp is plenty. But it’s somewhat surprising this guy’s muscle message cannot be coupled with Dodge’s storied 5.7-liter, 372-hp Hemi V-8.
