2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Gets The Widebody Treatment

Reveal / Comments

More aggressive styling is coupled with improved performance.

After announcing that the new Challenger Drag Pak will cost over $140,000, Dodge is continuing to expand the 2021 Challenger range with two new Widebody variants. For the first time, the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker and T/A 392 have been given the Widebody treatment for 2021, adding more aggressive styling while also improving the performance of Dodge's naturally aspirated 6.4-liter 392 Hemi lineup.

The 3.5-inch wider body allows makes room for wider 20-by-11 inch wheels wrapped in 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires, enabling more grip and faster times at the drag strip. Dodge claims that adding the Widebody Package to the Challenger R/T Scat Pack improves lap times by nearly two seconds or 12 car lengths compared to the R/T Scat Pack. It will also complete the quarter-mile 0.2 seconds faster at 12.1-seconds at 112 mph.

Other enhancements include an SRT-tuned chassis and SRT-tuned high-performance adaptive damping suspension, a dual-extractor hood, SRT Performance Pages, and Line Lock, which engages the front brakes but leaves the rear wheels free to perform a tire-smoking burnout.

Harking back to the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody features an engine-mounted hood scoop that "shakes" with the movement of the powertrain, as the name suggests. The Shaker hood also comes with a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Lift the hood and enthusiasts will also be treated to a "SHAKER" underhood decal - reminiscent of the original 1970 Challenger.

Pricing for the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody starts at $47,690 excluding the $1,495 destination charge. Order books are already open, with the first deliveries scheduled to start early next year.

Also getting the widebody treatment is the retro-inspired 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392. Inspired by the original 1970 Challenger T/A, the new Widebody version features unique design details including a Satin Black hood, wrap roof and deck lid, a roof and deck-lid graphic paired to the T/A body-side stripes, a black spoiler with a T/A decal, a "392" fender decal, and Air Catcher headlamps with LED-illuminated T/A logos.

Inside, the cabin is fitted with a 1970s-style gauge cluster with bright white concave faces and gloss black details and black upholstered performance seats with cloth inserts.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody carries an MSRP of $49,090 excluding the $1,495 destination charge. Dealer orders will open later this year before deliveries start next spring. Both models are powered by a naturally aspirated 392 Hemi V8 sending 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a standard six-speed manual or optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
