Will there be an AWD 100?

I think AWD would be a great way to not only distinguish the 100 from the Dart, but also to impart a more premium feel to it. Figure that the same platform the 100 is based on is under both the KL cherokee and the 200 sedan, both of them are available with AWD setups. And if you think they are too big to share, consider that the KL Cherokee donated its AWD system to the Jeep Renegade. So if the system can move down from Jeep to Jeep why whouldnt the 200 be able to donate its AWD to the 100?

Thats not a bad idea and I think this is one of the more ideal cars for Canadians and of course they need AWD for winter, as well as well as americans in northern states. Is the Dart going AWD? How about the 200? They might be a good starting point for this.

They will probably make the AWD part of a higher trim level. There will be people who don't want it and just want a cheaper vehicle, but others will opt for the more expensive AWD model. I would depending on the price.

How much more would you expect AWD cost over a FWD trim?

Thats what the Dart is for. FCA wants Chrysler to be a more premium feeling brand. No one has to buy AWD, but people want the choice. If the 200 is getting it I'd be very surprised if the system is not re purposed for the 100...

Forgot to add that yes the Dart is in fact expected to get an AWD version, expected for MY 2016.

Chrysler 100 and/or 100C appears to have been dropped from the plans, but we think that Dodge Dart might eventually move over to Chrysler.

The SRT Dart has been dropped for the moment, with a Dart R/T (above the GT) possible with milder but still formidable performance. All wheel drive, new four-cylinder engines, and a nine-speed automatic are both in the Dart’s future, possibly for calendar-year 2016.
Its the date thats in question not the components.

thats for the dart. Logically the 100 should get the AWD first to keep it feeling premium...

Makes a big difference in winter driving, so I think it would be a mistake not to include it. The 100 may be smaller than the 200 but I think they want to keep it at the same level of luxury.
