Dodge Challenger GT AWD Review: A Muscle Car for All Seasons

Dodge Challenger GT AWD Review: A Muscle Car for All Seasons
Over the years, I’ve driven a number of vehicles based on FCA’s full-size car platform, which underpins the Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Chrysler 300. Most of the models I’ve been in have been muscular rear-wheel drive cars with giant HEMI V8s, and crazy amounts of horsepower.

2020 Dodge Charger GT AWD Review: A Snowy First Drive
I recently had the opportunity to spend some time in the beautiful, snow-capped mountains of central Colorado, where Rocky Mountain Redline assembled a variety of all-wheel drive vehicles to demonstrate their prowess in wintry conditions. Among the cars and crossovers was one of the first ever 2020 Dodge Charger GT AWDs to roll off the assembly line.

What’s the Difference Between AWD and 4WD?

What’s the Difference Between AWD and 4WD?
It’s clear that there’s a difference between vehicles that can send power to just two wheels or all four of them, but the terms “all-wheel drive” and “4-wheel drive” actually mean different things. In a nutshell, an all-wheel drive vehicle can variably send power between the front and rear wheels, dynamically distributing power via a central differential.

2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Avalon Get AWD Versions

2020 Toyota Camry and 2021 Avalon Get AWD Versions
Here in the midwest and other places where it gets cold and snowy, all-wheel drive vehicles generally outsell their front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive variants. While a good set of winter tires is always a help when driving on slick surfaces, being able to send power to all four wheels can be a big help in providing vehicle stability and control.

2018 Audi TT RS Coupe Review: A Turbocharged Fist-Full of Exotic Fury

2018 Audi TT RS Coupe Review: A Turbocharged Fist-Full of Exotic Fury
If the Audi TT were an exotic animal, it would probably be a flying squirrel. Small in stature, yet ferociously unafraid of swift flight, it rambunctiously leaps from place to place; an adorable little acrobat with loads of personality and a “never-say-die” look in its eye.

2019 Hyundai Kona Review: A Lime Green Crossover with a Twist

2019 Hyundai Kona Review: A Lime Green Crossover with a Twist
The first time we saw the Hyundai Kona, it was being revealed at the LA Auto Show, and while some applauded the automaker’s investment, many people really didn’t know what to think of it. America’s small CUV segment is already riddled with options, and for whatever reason Hyundai has remained out of the race… until now.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT Review: The Road Well Traveled
The first Mitsubishi that I ever came into close contact with was my dad’s Colt hatchback. Rebadged as a Dodge, the five-door was a daily-driven delight. With a manual gearbox, stellar fuel economy, room aplenty for baby seats, and nary a mechanical issue to be seen over multiple years.

Stomp around in someone else’s backyard just to see what happens. Throw the traditionalists for a loop with turbocharged antics and all-wheel drive agility, then back it all up with a jaw-dropping list of standard features for a fraction of the competition’s asking price.

Hyundai has gone from being labeled as the unreliable Korean alternative to world-class contender in record time. Like all success stories, there were some early year growing pains, as well as some awkward teenage moments (anyone else remember the Veracruz?),

2017 Mazda CX-3 GT Review: Living the AWD Miata Mindset
To be completely honest, I was rather looking forward to revisiting Mazda’s micro-sized CX-3 crossover. It had been about a year and a half since I last reviewed a Touring model, and was overjoyed when I saw the “Dynamic Blue Mica” GT version roll into my drive.

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Review: Best Wagon Ever?

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country Review: Best Wagon Ever?
Station wagons have become quite the anomaly here in America, and for damn good reason. The minivan surprise attack of the 1980s was quickly followed by an SUV punch, and once crossover and hybrid sales began to climb, the quintessential family mover of yesteryear appeared to be on its last leg at the turn of the millennium.

2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Review: The 3rd Inning Stretch
It’s Reds season in Cincinnati, and it seems like every year I forget how gung-ho people are about baseball in this town. OK, so I guess having the first pro team in history technically labels Cincy as baseball icon of sorts, but did it have to spawn so many god-awful drivers?

Dodge Challenger GT Review: Mild Muscle Car Meets AWD Agility
There’s no getting around it. The all-wheel drive Challenger GT is one hell of a unique spin on American muscle car culture. Vibrant buyer interest in all-wheel drive versions of the Charger have caused the iconic coupe to morph into a surefooted snowshoe hare, an animal that prefers stability and agility over brawn and bite, and quite frankly we love it.
