Regulation enforcement officers throughout the nation shall be desperate to study Dodge’s new Shakedown package deal for the Challenger and … oh, what’s that, Steph? Not that sort of shakedown? Alright then.
In an effort to inject a little bit of curiosity in a car that was launched a yr earlier than Barack Obama took the Oath of Workplace for the first time – past, y’know, psychotic 707- and 840-horsepower editions – Dodge has tossed a stereo and a little bit of wallpaper at its retro two-door.
The all-new Shakedown Package is out there on Shaker-outfitted Challengers of the R/T, R/T Plus, and 392 Hemi Scat Pack selection. The package deal provides an Alpine audio system, white-confronted gauges, and asymmetrical black racing exterior stripes. That wallpaper is claimed to have been impressed by the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger idea first proven at the 2016 SEMA present in Vegas. This package deal will hoover $995 out of your checking account.
Audiophiles take notice: With the upgraded Alpine deck (deck? I’m courting myself), the R/T Shaker receives six audio system and a 275-watt amplifier, whereas clients of R/T Shaker Plus and 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker machines are handled to 9 audio system and a 500-watt amp.
Scorching-rod Challenger R/T and R/T Plus coupes are powered by the venerable 5.7-liter Hemi V8, making 375 horsepower and hooked to a six-velocity guide. Bushy-chested 392 Hemi Challengers have a 6.four-liter beneath the hood making 485 horses. It, too, has a stickshift. The 392 Hemi is an engine which, oddly, calls for 0W-forty artificial oil. There’s your Jeopardy trivia for right now.
Technically, all three can be found with FCA’s eight-velocity TorqueFlite automated, however any buyer selecting that choice on this car ought to have their driver’s license revoked instantly. Somebody who’s misplaced the use of their left leg is exempt from this rule, however that’s about it.
This, in fact, shouldn’t be the first particular version package deal that’s been hurled at the Challenger. Removed from it, in reality. A myriad of paint choices have appeared over the years, starting from the fabulous B5 Blue to aggro-named Destroyer Grey. The truth is, the complete Dodge palette is a implausible tour of an alternate-actuality Skittles menu: SubLime, TorRed, Go Mango, and Plum Loopy simply to call a few. This extrovert thinks it’s fantastic.
To be truthful, the Challenger has gotten its justifiable share of upgrades since 2009, the most sensible of which being a revised interior that upgraded the two-door’s cabin from Playskool supplies to a very agreeable design. This writer dailies a Pentastar-powered Charger and, now that the teenager is greater than sufficiently old to heave himself out and in of the backseat on a faculty run, solely the prospect of as soon as once more having a car cost is stopping me from visiting Blaikie’s Dodge and signing the word on a barely used mannequin.
Final yr, Dodge moved a complete of sixty four,537 Challengers. That’s inside shouting distance of its best yr, 2015, when sixty six,365 of them roared off vendor tons. Murica!
