Good choice.(y)

If the SRT Challenger/Charger came in AWD, it would've made for an interesting competitor for cold climate drivers.

But alas, no V8 AWD for those two models (much less an SRT version, which would've compared to the Stinger GT).

Yes the need for awd in my climate is a must I’m my opinion, I like to have that peace of mind.

I drove muscle cars through Winters for decades. Not fun anymore. Also, considerable hp increases over the years means that modern muscle cars usually can't put down that power and are radically inconsistent. AWD is the way to go.

Congrats

You relayed my experiences exactly! lol

I loved my S550 Mustang GT, but I wanted a high performance all-season single car solution and the AWD Stinger GT fits the bill.(y)

I realize this post is a bit old but I am fascinated that you went from the Challenger GT AWD to Stinger GT since those are the 2 cars I am trying to decide between (well I would buy the GT Ltd / GT2). I watched some of your early vids where you shared your love for the Challenger.
Can you summarize what made you decide to make the change?
What do you miss about the Challenger (there must be something? :) )
Cheers
