There are few things odder than seeing a massive muscle car tackling a snowy road because, well, it just looks so out of place. But Chrysler has made a muscle car for that very purpose, the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD, and to show off its capabilities they sent the thing to Alaska and told it not to come back until it’s filmed a proper snowy TV spot.
The result is the clip you are about to watch titled “Russia,” in which the Dodge Challenger GT AWD take on some snowy, icy and winding roads to prove that despite the image it has acquired as a crude and brutal muscle car, it can actually hold its own when things get slippery.
“With its iconic muscle car design, 305 horsepower and all-wheel-drive capability, the new Dodge Challenger GT is now the most exciting all-weather daily driver – even if you live in Alaska,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America. “With the Challenger GT joining the Dodge Charger AWD, Dodge offers the only cars that combine that visceral muscle car attitude without sacrificing practicality and all-weather security.”
