Will we ever see a AWD Camaro ?

Dodge just announced that they are making an AWD V6 Challenger. So I was wondering if Chevy would ever make a AWD Camaro to compete.

They could make one and call it a Camaro, but it still wouldn't be one.

Challenger just added weight to an already over-weight car. Then it only has a V6 & Auto Trans - No Thanks!

No. A pony car is a RWD vehicle. If you need AWD, buy something else.

That's a terrible idea... I mean, Lamborghini, Porsche, Jaguar, Bugatti, Audi... those guys all know how to build great sports cars, and everybody knows that sports cars only have just two driven wheels, somewhere near the trailing end of the car. Those world class manufacturers would never commit the crime of driving all four wheels.

Snark aside, I would take an AWD Camaro any day. I would certainly prefer the option of going to 2WD, which I suppose would make the thing a lot more like a 4WD (as opposed to an AWD), but that's more semantics than anything else... give me the option between two or four.

I'm in the same boat as why? Muscle cars should never be offered in AWD.

Pretty sure every one of those manufacturers make a AWD sports car and or Hypercar. If you were being sarcastic that isn't what snarky means .

Yes, they all make an AWD... and, yes, snark's definition in the dictionary uses the word "sarcasm" to explain what it means.

I don't care for the way an AWD car drives compared to a RWD anyway. They can make it, but I won't buy it.

I think it's a good move for Dodge to get some sales from Chevy and Ford. If they offered at least the 5.7, I may have made the switch. Do I think Ford or Chevy will offer AWD? No.

I mean it's definitely a good idea if they still offer a RWD option too for cheaper. An AWD ZL1 would be awesome! Haha
