Dodge Introduces T/A 392 Widebody For 2021 Model Year:

Adds More Road Course Handling For Heritage Model...

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 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.

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.

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 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. 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.
