‘Snowpocalypse’ – No Match for The HEMI® Charger R/T AWD

With the Northeast getting hammered by the relentless ‘Snowpocalypse’, our friends at the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA), awarded the 2011 Dodge Charger R/T AWD with their coveted Winter Vehicle Award in the $25, 000 to $35, 000 sedan/wagon price class. This group of automotive journalist’s covers a large section of the country – mainly all six New England states that contain one of the largest populations in the United States. Therefore, when these guys test new vehicles, they look well beyond the usual 0-60 and quarter mile times to gauge the cars performance. These writers evaluate the vehicle in everyday “real world” conditions that includes the harsh, brutal and sometimes treacherous winter driving conditions that are prevalent in their region of the country.
“Dodge Charger is a great looking car with a high-quality interior, ” said John Paul, Winter Vehicle Awards Team Leader — NEMPA. “Add in its dedicated all-wheel-drive system, and the Charger feels like it was designed just for New England winters. Oh and by the way, it has a Hemi!”
The ultra cool Charger AWD system features a unique active transfer case and front axle disconnect system which allows seamless engagement between rear-wheel drive to AWD. Therefore when a ‘Nor’easter’ comes out of nowhere, the system will automatically engage to the changing weather and road conditions. Therefore, you no longer need to worry about what mother nature throws at you. On dry pavement, the system automatically disconnects the front axle to increase fuel economy. Think of this as having your cake and eating it too.
“When designing the all-new Dodge Charger R/T AWD, the team pushed the fastback sedan’s capabilities further, delivering a highly capable and precise all-season performance street weapon that thrives in any ‘Snowpocolypse, ” said our President and CEO Ralph Gilles. “With its state-of-the-art AWD system combined with a new world-class chassis, best-in-class horsepower, the all-new Dodge Charger R/T AWD is designed to deliver performance and grip even during one of the harshest of winters this country has seen in years.”
Now if that darn ground hog had only seen his shadow, we could have had six more weeks of fun winter driving in our Charger R/T AWD!

      Tous les ans depuis 2005 je dois passer une visite médicale pour le permis de conduire. Chaque année les tests sont bons. Abus de pouvoir ? Suis-je la vache à lait ?

      Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Appreciate it!

      I believe that the question in your title was already asked, in different form, by a fellow named Faust. He put it like this: “Should I sell my soul to the devil in order to enjoy this world to the fullest?”

      I love historical fiction, especially this time period, and would love to be included in the contest!BTW, I admire you for being able to do a book club kit for Absalom! Absalom! I tried reading it years ago — what do you think? Is it worth retrying? If you recommend it, I will certainly give it a try

    Just checked out an R/T AWD at my local dealer. We’re due for another snowstorm here; maybe I’ll go back and give it a test drive in the new snow.

    Was very impressed with the interior and the touchscreen.

    I have a 2010 Charger with the AWD system … it’s great in snow since I am western NY … just wish there was a way to have driver adjustable settings to what triggers the car to go into AWD. Some times it uses AWD based only on thte outside temperature… it can be cold with dry salted roads and really not a need for the AWD.

    Asking questions are actually pleasant thing if you are not understanding something completely, however this paragraph offers fastidious understanding yet.
