SEMA is always the biggest show in the calendar for American tuners and this years show has revealed one of the most epic Dodge Challengers we have seen so far, the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker. The updated 2014 R/T Shaker model features throwback muscle-car cues that link directly to Dodge brand’s legendary muscle performance.
As the model name suggests, the infamous “cold-air grabbing” Shaker not only looks good with its Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop, snorkeling up from the engine compartment, it also directs cooler air back into the huge HEMI V8 engine. Just like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that “shakes” with the powertrain’s movement giving the car its rather absurd title.
That bludgeoning engine produces a stunning 400 lb-ft of torque that will keep the Shaker growling until it slams into it’s 250 km/h limiter. In addition, the car features sport-mode powertrain calibration, performance suspension, disc brakes and steering calibration and the Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker includes the ‘Super Track Pak’. This includes a high-performance steering gear, brake linings and monotube shock absorbers, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control with ‘full off’ mode.
All in all, a very attractive package that will make this Challenger stand out from the pack.
