Then Again, That’s 807 Horsepower

2020 Dodge Challenger Super Stock

The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock Package is storming to market this fall, and it’s shaping out to be the new muscle car champion of the world. All in, the new 2020 Super Stock has a starting price of $79,595, plus a $1,495 destination fee.

This puts it a just above the already dummy-fast Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye ($78,090 with destination, plus a $2,100 gas guzzler tax), and slightly below the iconic Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which came it at $84,995 before fees. Whether you can afford one or not, there’s no other production car with over 800 horsepower for that kind of money. It maintains the relative value appeal that American muscle cars are renown for. Even if that value is a moving goalpost.

The major option will be 18×11-inch wheels for $3,000. That’s for those who really want to send it down the drag strip.

If less than $100 per horsepower wasn’t enough of a statistic for you, consider the outright performance metrics. The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is capable of a 0-60 time of 3.25 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 10.5 seconds, thanks to a set of standard  (and street-legal) Nitto NT05R drag radials from the Dodge Demon to provide added grip. Because the Demon is retired, the Super Stock is the quickest production car in the quarter mile. Again, for a third the price of a new Ferrari.

Dealer orders will open later this month for the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock with production starting at Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario this fall, with deliveries following.

If you were to attempt to build yourself an unofficial Dodge Demon clone from a Challenger SRT Super Stock, don’t expect Dodge to help you. According to reports, FCA will not sell Demon parts to Super Stock owners, as they want to protect the collectability of the monster they once created.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
