Dodge is letting the public know some brand new pricing for the 2021 Dodge Challenger, including the new Challenger Drag Pak. This is the prize of all muscle cars; thanks to its high-octane, top-tier engineering abilities that have made Dodge so awarded and celebrated for decades. The speed is also something most people know Dodge brings to the table with every muscle car they offer. Dodge recently revealed the Drag Pak will cost over $140,000 MSRP (Plus destination fee). While that number is high, we can help explain the perks that have made the cost relatively reasonable considering what the vehicle offers. The 2021 Dodge Challenger will also carry two new trims including two new Widebody options for the T/A 392 R/T Scat Pack Shaker.
Each new trim is equipped with a more vibrant styling and have advanced performance found under the hood. Drivers will enjoy the powerful naturally aspirated 6.4-Liter 392 HEMI engine. With the Widebody treatment, the 3.5-inch growth to increase the width of the vehicle helps generate excellent turning ability and a more reliable grip when driving. The length improved the Dodge add the wider 20-by-11 inch wheels that carry 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires. Drivers can expect to go quicker and produce more satisfying times at the drag strip with either of these new entries to the Challenger family.
R/T Scat Pack Widebody Is Here
So, exactly how much improvement will an owner notice with the Widebody option? The R/T Scat Pack is approximately two seconds faster, which is about 12 car lengths faster compared to the non-Widebody form. The quarter-mile time is quick fast at its 12.1-second mark at a top speed of 112 mph, running a faster time than the non-Widebody version by a little less than half a second. The improvements for the Widebody are found with its SRT-tuned chassis and high-performance adaptive damping suspension. Additional perks come in the form of its dual-extractor hood, SRT Performance Pages, and the ability to engage the front brakes but the rear wheels are able to showcase a tire-smoking burnout because of the Line Lock feature that is added.
Owners will have the flare that is nostalgic of the 1970 Challenger R/T complete with the Shaker hood and SHAKER underhood decal. The R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody brings an engine-mounted hood scoop that looks the part of pure muscle as the added Mopar cold-air intake improves airflow to the engine. The conical air filter with an optimized airbox will also provide improved performance. Customers can drive home the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody for $47,690 MSRP (Plus destination fee). Order books are currently open, with the first deliveries registered to begin at the start of 2021.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 is the other new trim choice that carries the Widebody offering.

The look is finished with its T/A body-side stripes, a sleek black spoiler with a T/A decal, a “392” fender decal, and Air Catcher headlamps with LED-illuminated T/A logos.
