Today’s dealerships are loaded with an array of snow and ice focused all-wheel-drive vehicles but only one of them is a muscle car. Bob Gritzinger reports.

Automakers build a range of vehicles equipped to tackle snowy conditions, carry a load and keep driver and passengers comfortable and happy. It’s safe to say the Dodge Challenger GT AWD isn’t anywhere near the top of that list but maybe it deserves to be.

On a winter power run to snowy Northern Michigan, we load four adults and ski equipment into the latest Challenger, one offering a segment-exclusive all-wheel-drive twist on the 2-door American muscle-car theme.

While the rear seatbacks will fold to handle skis and snowboards, we need the space for passengers so our waxed slats ride on window-mounted racks. Everything else for the weekend getaway goes in the big, deep trunk. This article first appeared in WardsAuto.
