2021 Challenger R/T Shaker
Dodge announced this month that there is the expansion of its Widebody Package option that includes two heritage models for the all-new 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The new models include the R/T Scat Pack Shaker and the T/A 392 models which were based on the R/T Scat Pack Widebody trim and added the iconic Shaker hood to that package. Both feature unique throwback muscle-car cues that make them look as great as they perform. Let’s dive into what makes these two new models unique.
REV THOSE ENGINES: Both cars will be powered by the powerhouse 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that cranks out 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. For those who are a fan of shifting gears, a 6-speed Tremec manual transmission is standard, or you can choose an optional 8-speed Torque-Flite automatic transmission which will come with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters
SIZE AND SRT PERFORMANCE: The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody model features unique details that link directly to the Dodge brand’s performance legacy. The widebody package adds 3.5 inches to the width of the car. Putting the power to good use are Pirelli performance tires wrapped on a set of 20 x 11-inch aluminum wheels, as well as an SRT Performance-tuned chassis with an SRT high-performance adaptive suspension. The cars will also be equipped with SRT Performance Pages with drive modes, as well as a standard Line Lock feature which engages the front brakes to hold the Challenger stationary during burnouts. Smokin’!
TRICKED OUT FEATURES: Inside, the two special editions feature a stylized muscle car interior with throwback black performance seats with signature Houndstooth cloth inserts, giving the driver and front passenger greater lateral support with an old school Mopar vibe. The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker features a satin black center-mounted hood scoop that snorkels up from the engine compartment, directing cool air back into the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the 2021 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that “shakes” with the powertrain’s movement.
Dodge is pulling out all the stops by expanding one of the Challenger’s coolest available features, the Widebody package. The all-new 2021 Dodge Challenger will definitely leave its mark this upcoming year for muscle car lovers.
