The Dodge brand announced back in September, that it would be expanding its Widebody Package option for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack to include two popular heritage models for the 2021 model year. The models include the R/T Scat Pack Shaker and the T/A 392 buzz models. It wasn’t until recently that the Dodge brand updated its Dodge.com Build & Price configurator to include the T/A Package on the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody options list. But now, the car is finally arriving in dealer showrooms across the country.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody builts on the history of the legendary 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A, which is considered one of the most sought-after muscle cars of all time. Initially built for the Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) Trans-Am racing series in 1970 with only 2,399 ever built, the Challenger T/A was Dodge’s road racing version of the iconic 1970 Dodge Challenger.
The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody includes the following equipment over the standard R/T Scat Pack Widebody model…
- “392” Fender Decal
- Black Fuel-Filler Door
- Gloss-Black Grille
- Black Satin Painted Hood
- Functional Hood Scoop
- Gloss Black Instrument Cluster Trim Rings
- Houndstooth Cloth Performance Seat
- Illuminated Air-Catcher® Headlamps
- Cold Air Intake System by Mopar®
- Satin Wrapped Roof and Decklid
- “T/A” Bodyside Graphic
- “T/A” Spoiler Decal

The Widebody Package adds even more canyon-carving ability to the large Dodge Challenger T/A 392, by adding 3.5-inches (8.8-centimeters) to the width of the car, sticky 305/35ZR20 Pirelli performance tires wrapped on a set of 20-inch x 11-inch aluminum wheels, as well as an SRT performance-tuned chassis with SRT high-performance adaptive suspension.
Buyers who opt for the Widebody Package will get the same Widebody performance as the R/T Scat Pack Widebody, which includes improvement of close to 2-seconds per lap or 12 car lengths compared with the non-Widebody R/T Scat Pack. In a quarter-mile comparison, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody gains .2-seconds, running a 12.1-second ET at 112 mph (180 km/h).
The Challenger T/A 392 Widebody has a starting U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $49,090 (all prices exclude $1,495 destination charge).
