2018 Dodge Challenger ADR Specs – Before the current-generation Opposition coupe is changed at some point in 2018, Dodge is providing it a little last-minute bump with an all-wheel-drive, non-SRT design and a new wide-body SRT Hellcat variant. The all-wheel-drive Challenger needs to look like, well, a routine Challenger– snore– however the so-called Dodge Challenger ADR should look correctly crazy, and this weekend we nabbed a preview of the girthier 707-hp model.
2018 Dodge Challenger ADR Design
Our photographer couldn’t focus due to the poor weather however it’s clear the tires are much broader than the minuscule 275/40-size set fitted to the SRT Hellcat. We have actually previously heard that 315s were possible though this figure might be conservative evaluating by the spy shots. (The cars and truck with the biggest rubber in business is presently the Dodge Viper, which uses enormous 355/30-size tires at the rear.).
2018 Dodge Challenger ADR Specs
Dodge first hinted at a wide-body Challenger when it rolled out the Dodge Challenger GT AWD idea at the 2015 SEMA program. The concept featured the all-wheel-drive system from the Dodge Charger however under its hood was the lame duck 5.7-liter V-8 from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Fortunately, the prototypes are believed to differ from the concept. We hear there will be at least two wide-body options for the Opposition, though there might certainly be more. The two we’re hearing about is an all-wheel-drive cars and truck geared up with the entry-level 3.6-liter V-6, plus a high-performance automobile geared up with the Hellcat supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 and rear-wheel drive just.
The all-wheel-drive cars and truck is focused on those in the Snowbelt. V-8s are believed to have actually been dismissed due to tight and product packaging and torque constraints of the all-wheel-drive system, though at least with the extra traction the automobile will be hand all year ’round. As for the high-performance car, this is expected to be a new model called the Dodge Challenger ADR (American Drag Racer). It will be rear-wheel drive, with the additional rubber there to help put down the Hellcat’s hellish power. We’ve even heard that output could be bumped beyond the present 707-horsepower optimum rating.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger ADR is expected to be a last hurrah for the existing Challenger before the revamped design, based on the lighter, more vibrant Giorgio platform debuting in the Alfa Romeo Giulia, makes its arrival. The next-generation car may even have a convertible choice utilizing the Barracuda name.
