The R/T Scat Pack 1320 Returns For The 2021 Model Year:

Dodge's Grassroots Drag Racer Is Back...

With the introduction of the 807 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock (ultimately a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon without the high-octane mode and transbrake), a lot of focus has been taking away from Dodge’s grassroots drag racing package – the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. That’s right, the R/T Scat Pack 1320 returns for the 2021 model year, to offer an affordable drag racing package for those who don’t have deep enough pockets for the $79,595 USD price of the SRT Super Stock.

Named for the quarter-mile distance (1,320 feet), the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is powered by the 6.4-liter 392 HEMI® V8 that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. With a quarter-mile elapsed time (E.T.) of 11.70 seconds @ 115 miles per hour (mph), the showroom-stock Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 includes the following features…

  • TorqueFlite 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission – required equipment for the R/T Scat Pack 1320, replacing the standard manual transmission on the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
  • TransBrake – locks the output shaft of the automatic transmission to hold the car stationary before a standing start
  • Torque Reserve – works in conjunction with the TransBrake and Launch Control by managing fuel flow to cylinders and controlling spark advance or retard to balance engine rpm and torque to maximize power delivery and launch performance
  • Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radials – specially developed tires that deliver exceptional grip at the drag strip and on the street
  • SRT-tuned three-mode Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) electronically retuned for the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320
    • Includes Drag Mode that, when engaged, optimizes weight transfer to the rear for best launch traction
  • The standard interior configuration has driver’s seat only to help reduce weight by approximately 114 pounds; the front passenger seat and rear seat are available individually as $1 options
  • Performance-tuned asymmetrical limited-slip differential with 3.09 final drive
  • Extreme-duty 41-spline rear axle half shafts adopted from the Challenger SRT Demon
  • Line Lock – engages the front brakes to hold the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 stationary, but leaves the rear wheels free for a burnout to heat up and clean the rear tires
  • Launch Assist – uses wheel speed sensors to watch for driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and, in milliseconds, modifies the engine torque to regain full grip
  • Launch Control – controls tire slip during straight-line acceleration
  • Low Gloss Black 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum-forged wheels with knurled bead seats to minimize tire slip on the wheel
  • Brembo High-performance Brake Package with four-piston calipers
