If you were looking for a big HEMI V8 upfront with AWD, then you are currently out of luck. The V8 engines are just too large to fit all the hardware necessary to get power to the front wheels as well as the rear wheels. It’s the base SXT and the GT trim above it that give you available AWD. This means you can still get 305 horsepower through a Dodge V6 with all-wheel drive.
