Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Gets Widebody Option In 2021:

Shaker Widebody, Is Now Open For Orders...

The Dodge brand announced earlier today, 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. The news comes after the success of the limited edition 2020 Dodge Challenger 50th Anniversary Edition Widebody models, which were based on the R/T Scat Pack Widebody trim and added the iconic Shaker hood to that package.

Not only are both cars powered by the naturally aspirated 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI V8 delivering 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, but for those who are a fan of banging gears a 6-speed TR-6060 Tremec manual transmission is standard. Of course, there is an optional 8-speed 8HP70 Torque-Flite automatic transmission as well. If your Challenger is equipped with the optional automatic transmission, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters are also added. 

The Widebody Package adds 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. 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, but leaves the rear wheels free for a burnout to heat up and clean the rear tires.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody model features unique throwback muscle-car cues that link directly to Dodge brand’s performance legacy. As the model name suggests, the legendary “cold-air grabbing” Shaker not only looks good with its Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop, snorkeling up from the engine compartment, it also directs cooler air back into the 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) 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.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody includes the following equipment over the standard R/T Scat Pack Widebody model…

  • “Shaker” Under Hood Decal
  • Shaker Mounted 392 HEMI Badge
  • SHAKER Instrument Panel Badge
  • Gloss Black Instrument Cluster Trim Rings
  • Shaker Hood by Mopar®
  • Shaker Intake by Mopar®
  • Satin Black Rear Spoiler
  • White Face Instrument Cluster
