2021 Dodge Challenger T/A Widebody

The original Dodge Challenger T/A was a unique muscle car in that it was a homologation special for the (SCCA) Trans Am racing series in 1970, and only 2,399 were ever built. As a result, a 1970 Challenger T/A is highly sought after, with well-kept models going for over $100,000 at auctions. Today, Dodge offers a T/A Package for its Challenger R/T 392 models, but not in a widebody configuration. That changes today, with the announcement of the 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody, along with the Challenger Shaker Widebody. Highlights include:

  • Painted Satin Black hood, Satin Black wrap roof and deck lid
  • Roof and deck-lid graphic paired to the T/A body-side stripes
  • Black spoiler with T/A spoiler decal
  • “392” fender decal
  • “Air Catcher” headlamps with LED-illuminated T/A logos
  • NACA ducted hood designed to feed a modified SRT Hellcat air box with Mopar conical filter, optimizing cold air intake through these two signature fresh-air inlets
  • Available factory-installed hood pins
  • 1971-inspired “tic-toc-tach” gauge cluster features Bright White concave faces and Gloss Black details
  • Black upholstered performance seats with signature Houndstooth cloth inserts give the driver and front passenger greater lateral support
  • Unique heated and ventilated Nappa leather performance seats in Black with Tungsten accent stitching and embroidered “T/A” logo (available with Plus Group)

The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody has a starting U.S. MSRP of $49,090, plus destination. That puts it just ahead of the standard R/T Scat Pack Widebody, and beneath the 50th Anniversary Edition Scat Pack Widebody in the lineup. Dealer orders for Challenger T/A 392 Widebody will open later this year with vehicles scheduled to arrive in Dodge//SRT dealerships in the spring.

Every Challenger R/T Widebody comes standard with a Hemi 392 V8 that pushes out 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Also standard is a Tremec six-speed manual transmission, with a ZF-sourced TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission as a popular option, which comes with steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters.

The Widebody on each Challenger R/T Scat Pack adds 3.5 inches of overall width, which attempt to hide massive Pirelli tires measuring 305/35ZR20 in all four corners, surrounding 20-by-11-inch wheels. Each one also features an SRT-tuned chassis and SRT-tuned high-performance adaptive damping suspension. SRT Performance Pages with drive modes and a tire smoking Line Lock mode are also present and accounted for.

Around the road course, Dodge says that the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody gaps the standard model by 2 seconds per lap, which is equal to 12 car lengths. In a quarter-mile comparison, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody gains .2 seconds, running a 12.1-second ET at 112 mph.
