And it's arriving in dealerships right now.
The moment we first laid eyes on her, it was evidently clear Dodge had a future hit on its hands. Not a massive mainstream hit, but one that’s aimed directly at enthusiasts and Baby Boomers alike. We’re talking about the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker, a car that’s already an instant classic. You see, back in 1970, Dodge offered the original Challenger with what’s called a "Shaker" hood. What does a "Shaker" hood do exactly?
It’s an engine-mounted hood scoop that allows for cold air to get into the Hemi V8 engine, and "shakes" with the powertrain’s movement. Yeah, that’s pretty damn awesome. And now the 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker is arriving in dealers. Dodge is claiming that it received some 2,000 dealer orders from January 7 through January 10, indicating high demand. With its 5.7-liter Hemi V8 producing over 400 lb-ft of torque, the car is priced at an outright reasonable $36,995. Complete with a "Shaker" style Satin Black hood, roof and deck-lid stripe graphics, the retro muscle car is now heading to dealers. If it’s in your budget and you happen to need a new car, the choice couldn’t be clearer.
