Harkening back to the 70s, Dodge has decided to offer new Challenger Shaker models. These models feature a unique hood scoop that offers a new look, as well as a new feel. This upgrade is just one more reason the Challenger is one of the best muscle cars on the market.
So what exactly does a hood scoop do? According the Dodge, the Shaker scoop increases cold-air induction, upping horsepower. The name comes from the way the model shakes along with the engine (in a good way). The new Dodge Challenger Shaker models come in three basic types: Challenger R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and first-ever 392 HEMI® Scat Pack Shaker.
“After selling out last year’s Shaker model production in just four days, our hardcore Challenger customers demanded we bring back the Shaker – plus offer more power and more performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge and SRT. “We listened, and for 2015, the new Dodge Challenger lineup offers the legendary Shaker hood expanded to include our 485 horsepower HEMI V-8.”
The new Scat Pack racer comes with best-in-class performance thanks to improved equipment. It produces 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, and it paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission. Not only do these new models look and feel great, they’re also incredibly fast as well.
