LAS VEGAS, NV. — One of the Dodge brand’s most coveted performance options is back!
The functional “Shaker” hood will once again be available on two different models: the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T and the limited-production Mopar ’14 Challenger models.
“The legendary Shaker performance hood is back, with its engine-mounted, fully floating scoop and exposed high-flow element that produces cold-air induction—making the new 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker the real deal,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge Brand. “With Challenger having its best sales-year ever, the time is right to provide our most loyal fans with the return of the Shaker.”
2014 Dodge Challenger R/T
The 2014 R/T Shaker model incorporates the legendary “cold-air grabbing” Shaker, and it not only looks good with its Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop, it also directs cooler air back into the HEMI V8 engine. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that “shakes” with the powertrain’s movement.
The 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker features the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine producing over 400 ft.-lbs. of torque with a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter, and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Lift the hood and you’ll find an underhood “Shaker” badge that’s reminiscent of the 1970s original.
Limited-Edition Mopar ’14
The limited-edition Mopar ’14 takes the new 2014 Challenger R/T a step further. The Mopar brand’s rarest limited-production Challenger model announced to date (only 100 to be made), the new Mopar ’14 is engineered to take on any combination of the three all-new “Scat Packages” (see below) to crank up the performance a notch or three.
The Mopar ’14 Challenger features Bright White or Gloss Black exterior paint, and in keeping with tradition to its limited-edition predecessors, is highlighted by the “Shaker-style” stripe in “Mopar Blue.” For an even more customized look, two additional Mopar Blue stripe options are available, including an all-new “rocker panel” bodyside triple stripe runs with “MOPAR” across the doors. It’s also available with an all-new A-line bodyside stripe that wraps over the deck lid and includes the Mopar “Omega M” logo on the rear-quarter.
The Mopar ’14 Challenger’s all-new Satin Black Shaker hood scoop stands out with its raised profile and “Shaker” logo reverberating while the 5.7L HEMI V8 is running. Other unique design elements to contrast the Bright White paint include all-new 20 x 8-inch gloss black aluminum wheels with Mopar center caps, a unique Black Vapor grille surround, black fuel-filler door, and gloss black deck-lid spoiler with gloss black “Mopar Design” badge and “Mopar” quarter-glass decals.
Mopar ’14 Challenger owners will be able to further customize their rare rides with an array of Mopar accessories available from their dealership: short-throw shifter, cat-back exhaust, performance suspension, and more.
Scat Packages Return
Along with the Shaker hood, Mopar is also reviving the historic “Scat Packages” offered in the 1960s. From cold-air intakes and upgraded exhaust components (Stage 1), to a performance camshaft (Stage 2), to ported and polished heads (Stage 3), the three Scat Packages enable Challenger R/T Shaker—as well as other 5.7L HEMI V8 Dodge Challenger and Charger models—to get maximum performance options from the factory.
Owners of the 2.4L-powered Dart will also be able to enjoy the new-age Scat Packs. The Dart versions include short-throw shifter, cold air intake and performance brakes on Stage 1, enhanced engine calibration and cat-back exhaust on Stage 2, and big brake kit and suspension tuning on Stage 3 kits.
