2021 Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack Shaker Widebody Muscle Car

We have a favorite design element if each American muscle car on the market today. For the Ford Mustang, it’s the toggle switchgear affixed at the bottom of the cockpit’s center stack. For the Chevrolet Camaro, it’s the gung-ho aero work on the ZL1 1LE. And for the Dodge Challenger, it’s the shaker hood. Yet it wasn’t exactly available to pair with a widebody style that’s gotten so popular. But now that changes. Introducing the (*breathes*) 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody. And what a body it has.

Like other Scat Pack Widebody Challengers, the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody gets an extra 3.5 inches of overall width, highlighted by oversized 305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires mounted to 20-by-11-inch wheels. But the signature party piece is the cold-air-huffing shaker intake that’s popping out of the hood. It’s affixed directly to the 392 Hemi V8 engine that roars out 485 horsepower. It’s a look that harkens back to the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, and yes, it actually shakes with the movement of the powertrain.

The Shaker hood itself comes with a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Lift the hood and enthusiasts will also be treated to a “SHAKER” underhood decal – also a throwback to the original 1970 Challenger. Keep the fire alive, Dodge.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody has a starting U.S. MSRP of $47,690, excluding a $1,495 destination charge. This is the most horsepower and the most tire you can get for the money. Both factors are equally important, if you ask us.

Dealer orders for the 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker Widebody are now open, with vehicles scheduled to arrive in dealerships early next year.

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.

    1. Wow I heard this was coming. It only became available on “ 50th anniversary Scat Pack Widebody models before and dealers wanted, and still want ridiculously over list prices. I will definitely wait until next year for 392 scat with shaker body color. With minimal options I am hoping under 50 grand
