also offers an all-wheel drive version. To make it a little more interesting, Dodge is now offering the all-wheel driver car in a Sport version with updates to the interior and exterior trim. 

The cars get a gloss black grill, 19in polished wheels with gloss black details, performance all-season tires, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, Sport Mode for the transmission, 12-speaker stereo, body-color rear spoiler and sport seats in cloth for SXT and R/T or leather for the SXT Plus and R/T Plus. 

“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, Dodge President.

The cars will be available with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 300hp that gets 18mpg city and 27mpg highway. The engine option is the 5.7-liter Hemi with 370hp and 395lb-ft of torque with cylinder deactivation.

The Charger's all-wheel drive system sends all of the power to the rear until it senses that the wheels are slipping, and then it sends power to the front. 

The Sport model is available on all trims of the all-wheel drive Charger: SXT, SXT Plus, R/T and R/T Plus. It adds $1,395 to the SXT trim and $1,195 to the R/T trim. Orders are open now and deliveries will start in January.
