Dodge has a fresh face that will be joining the ranks of other muscle cars on the drag strip. Street-legal and able to compete with the best of the best according to the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 has been approved to hit the circuit. Not many vehicles on the road today can be driven safely on the road and compete in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Sportsman class racing. Wondering what makes this Challenger capable of drag racing?

What Makes the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Special?

Dodge engineers high-performance muscle cars that are fast. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack is one of the strongest and fastest products ever made by Dodge. Starting with its hunky HEMI V8 engine that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque and provides a quarter-time of 11.70 seconds at a top speed of 115 mph. This is all packed into a sleek looking design that demands attention. People have definitely noticed as the Dodge Challenger outsold the Chevrolet Camaro in 2018 as well as the first quarter of 2019 with no signs of slowing down. The Challenger moved 13,431 vehicles ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro sales of 12,083 vehicles sold. That was the first year in the Dodge brand’s history to outsell the Camaro. Not only did Dodge earn second behind the Ford Mustang, but the Mustang has also seen slumping sales every year for four straight years.  In 2015 the Mustang sold over 115,000 vehicles, but they finished 2018 with fewer than 75,000 Mustang muscle cars sold. Look for Dodge to continue pushing for the top spot as their innovation leads the way for customers.

“The first generation of Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are the top collected vehicles in North America and transcend all generations. People have speculated about the death of the American muscle car since the mid-1970s, but the golden age of American muscle is happening right now in terms of horsepower and overall performance,” said Jonathan Klinger, spokesperson for Hagerty, the Traverse City-based collector car insurance and valuation company.

Hit the Strip With the R/T Scat Pack

Looking for a ride that can take you to work and yet still be cleared for competition on the weekends? For some, that’s the ideal choice. Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 includes a class weight break of 8.72 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 pounds. Drivers planning to race at an NHRA event must meet all rule and regulations expected for the category they hope to participate in. The Scat Pack 1320 was also granted entrance to be admitted upon modification to join the private NHRA Stock Eliminator competition. The Challenger 1320 has received a “B” stock category. Luckily, the modification of the vehicle is not required for access racing in the National Muscle Car Association events.

Get Stung By the Angry Bee

The “Angry Bee” design brings about an impeccable design, showcased on a badge that shows a buzzing bee placed on the front fenders, on the instrument panel, as well as the headlamps. The Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is expected to hit dealerships around the United States soon. The special package that improves upon the R/T Scat Pack, the 1320 version is faster by .03 seconds in the quarter-mile with a time of 11.70 seconds as well as 0.3 seconds going from 0-60 mph acceleration time, done in a mere 3.8 seconds.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package is an additional $3,995, which begins at $38,995 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission attaches $1,595 as well. Owners will receive complimentary, one-year memberships in the NHRA and NMCA for the 2019 season to allow for drag racing privileges and getting to be around other muscle cars that can go as fast as the “Angry Bee” can, or at least they can try.

The New Red, White, and Blue: Drive the Dodge Stars & Stripes Edition Muscle

2019 Dodge Stars Miami Lakes

All-American Performance: Dodge Salutes U.S. Armed Forces with Stars & Stripes Edition on Challenger and Charger

Dodge is welcoming service members and fans of the military to get a taste and sneak-preview of their all-new Stars & Stripes special edition package. The special edition package will be available for both the 2019 Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models. These prized muscle cars are going to be first shown at the 2019 New York International Auto Show opening on Friday, April 19th through Sunday, April 28th, 2019. Dodge declared their Stars & Stripes special edition vehicles will be available to reserve in May 2019 and hit dealerships nationwide later in the summer.

Step Into the Stars & Stripes Package

The Stars & Stripes package will provide these muscle cars with a detailed and polished look. The color choices are not the typical American red, white and blue, but instead, Dodge has given these vehicles a robust military appearance with the green and silver body color display. Each model will come with various aesthetic interior upgrades, including gloss black interior accents, unique black-on-black cloth seats. Dodge added an embroidered bronze star, a bronze instrument panel, and sharp bronze stitching into the whole interior. This is a vehicle that any military service member should consider, especially if they want some pure muscle car fun with each drive. The distinctive feature is a long matte, satin black and silver accent stripe that stretches across the middle of the vehicle. Many will note the American flag fender decals and 20-inch gloss black wheels, black badging and the fact this package isn’t for the base trims on either vehicle.

“We have a strong following of buyers who are in the military, as well as many buyers who are patriotic,” Steve Beahm, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Head of Passenger-Car Brands.

Feel the Awesome Power of Dodge Muscle

Customers can’t go wrong with either vehicle they decide on. The 2019 Dodge Charger is the fastest-sedan muscle car available today, and the 2019 Dodge Challenger presents a two-door experience that is comparable for owners. Both vehicles offer extraordinary speed, high-performance engine power and an outstanding ride to enjoy.  The GT trims carry the well-known and trusted Pentastar 3.6-Liter V6 engine that produces 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque for the 2019 Charger and 305 horsepower and 268 lb-ft in the 2019 Challenger. A step up from the GT are the R/T trims, which have the mightier 5.7-Liter V8 engine that outfits 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque for both the Challenger and Charger. The Scat Pack trim combines the even more notable strength as the powertrain supplied is a 6.4-Liter V8 that drives up to 485 horsepower with 475 lb-ft of torque for both vehicles. Now that’s some serious muscle any Dodge fan can enjoy.

Select Special Edition Pricing

For those considering this special edition package, the Stars & Stripes edition is available for an extra $1,995 for the following models: 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Charger Scat Pack; 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger R/T models; and 2019 Dodge Challenger and Charger GT RWD models. Good news for any active or retired military service members, Dodge will offer a $500 military bonus cash incentive on select purchases and leases. This discount is available thanks to the FCA Honoring Those Who Serve program. When contemplating if either the Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger is a perfect choice, we know where you can go to test them out and be better informed.

The 2019 Dodge Durango has a certain type of owner. Those who want the luxurious interior with the monster of an engine under the hood opt for the Durango over every large SUV in the segment. With many options in the category of three-row SUVs, few can contend with America’s fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV. The HEMI V8 powertrain option provides the driver with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Dodge is known for its high-performance engineering and remarkable towing capabilities embodied in the Durango. Those who want to feel like they are driving behind a muscle car and less like a large SUV, we recommend the high-end 2019 Dodge Durango SRT trim. Ready to find out why the Durango is ahead of the rest of the large SUV segment?

More on the Latest Dodge Durango

When selecting the right Dodge Durango, consider the various trims and powertrain options. There are three engine options for the Durango and five trim levels.

Providing best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, all of that power gives the 2019 Dodge Durango quite a strong powertrain option. The 5.7-Liter engine comes with the R/T and extends a solid gas mileage rating of 25 mpg. The HEMI V8 powertrain incorporates variable valve timing technology (VVT). For energy-conscious drivers, the beauty of VVT is how it saves gas (and money for drivers) as it pairs with a multi-displacement system that maintains gas and contributes to higher fuel efficiency when driving. Gain solid towing with the R/T trim that carries a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 7,400 pounds.

Step into the true highlight of the 2019 Dodge Durango in the high-end SRT trim.

Haul just about anything a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 maximum towing. Not just fast and strong, let’s get into why the Durango has won many customers over.

The Most Luxurious SUV On the Market For A Reason

Something to consider when buying any modern vehicle is just how good is the interior? The 2019 Dodge Durango interior pulls out all the stops with a remarkable 825-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. This system has a rich sound and provides an enclosed audio experience available for the R/T, Citadel and SRT trim. The 2019 Dodge Durango offers comfortable seating for up to seven passengers and available Captain’s chairs are available for the second row for an advanced luxury feel. Dodge has aimed at offering more than just a powerful high-performance vehicle three-row SUV. They wanted to supply drivers with an immersive vehicle experience from top to bottom.

“The Durango is our three-row Charger of the SUV segment, delivering uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling. Customer demand for utility vehicles in the United States has exploded over the past decade. Dodge Durango continues to separate itself from the competition with the performance and capability that our customers demand,” Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge//SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

The Best Time To Buy a Dodge Muscle Car Is Now

With a large portion of vehicles sold each day belonging to the SUV/crossover variety and a growing number of sales going to large pickup trucks, where have the fans of the muscle car gone? Many reasons are contributing to the fact that muscle cars have diminished slightly. That is good news for those who want to buy a muscle car! Despite the temporary hold Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) placed on Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger vehicles from their factories, there has never been a better time to seek out a new muscle car.

Fans Can’t Wait For the Next Special Dodge Vehicle

Dodge has gone to great lengths to hype up their latest lineup, but the one move that will help them the most is the growing exclusivity of their high-performance muscle cars. In fact, the latest April Fool’s Day joke was speculation of a new 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Ghoul. While no official word has been placed, CarBuzz.com claimed this story to be factual. We’ll wait and see, but the number of responses has generated hype for a muscle car that might not exist. The newest attraction will be the 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody that is set to debut later in 2019. Fans will start to wonder when the next special, surprising milestone muscle car will arrive though, as we can only speculate with them. But, we do know this current climate is a unique time for the Dodge brand.

Present Day: The SRT Glory Years

The past several years have rewarded fans of Dodge and muscle cars with the likes of the Dodge brand incorporating their SRT (Street Racing Technology) into the Hellcat, the 2018 Dodge SRT Demon and the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. These vehicles pushed the boundaries of muscle cars and production vehicles as a whole. Where else can a driver gain 797 horsepower (SRT Hellcat Redeye) or 840 horsepower (SRT Demon) for less than $90,000? The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has sold out, but there are still some SRT Hellcat Redeye options available. In time, that special top-tier trim will become a rare commodity gaining value with each year that passes.

In fact, we haven’t even seen the greatest that these past models can do. Just this month in April 2019 footage was released that showed the Dodge SRT Demon with the optional Demon Crate hitting over 211 miles per hour at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds. Exceptional! That’s what makes these Dodge muscle cars that spectacular.

Times Change, But Dodge Muscle Remains Highly Valued

As more and more vehicles are opting to push the limits of technology and better fuel economy ratings, Dodge has placed an emphasis on breaking their own records with faster and stronger vehicles. Will this trend continue? The heritage and special bond owners make their vehicle are not unique to the Dodge brand, but few vehicle brands have a following as Dodge has. There are more reasons to discover, but perhaps the fastest way to know why is to experience how much fun it feels to have a Dodge muscle car and feel the immense power and drive offered by the premier muscle car automaker. There is a reason Dodge has been around nearly 120 years and they are just getting started with their SRT vehicles (around since 2011) as they move into a new decade of dominance. Looking to drive a new muscle car? There is no place for Dodge muscle quite like Miami Lakes Automall.
