Sanity Reigns: Dodge Offers Challenger “Shaker” with Hemi
Updated April 22, 2015
One of the best features of any muscle car was the “shaker” hood on the 1970 Challenger R/T. Now Chrysler’s brought it back for 2015 with a 392 Hemi engine.
The new 2015 Challenger first-ever 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker models celebrate 45 years of the functional hood scoop that “shakes” with the HEMI V-8 engine’s movement.
As the “King of all Shakers,” the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker ups-the-ante with its best-in-class 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering up to 113 more horsepower and a 65-lb.-ft. leap in torque compared with the 5.7-liter Challenger R/T Shaker models — representing more than a 30 percent jump in horsepower and 18 percent jump in torque. The coupe’s best-in-class power enables it to turn mid 4-second 0-60 mph times and low 12-second quarter mile times.
Adding to the standard equipment found on the Dodge Challenger R/T Plus Shaker, the first-ever 2015 Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker includes a Tremec six-speed manual transmission (new TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission with paddle shifters is available), Scat Pack fender badge, 392 HEMI Shaker hood badge, 180 mph primary speedometer, active stainless steel performance dual exhaust system and 220-amp alternator.
In addition, the Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker takes the Super Track Pak suspension to the next level with a Brembo four-piston high-performance brake package and 20-by-9-inch polished aluminum wheels.
