Ordering for the 2015 Dodge Challenger Shaker Models Is Open—For Now
After experiencing huge success last year with its Shaker models, Dodge has once again added Shaker models to its lineup. Ordering for the 2015 Dodge Challenger Shaker models opened up at the end of last week*, though it will likely close pretty fast, if last year is any indication. The 2014 Shaker models sold out in just four days.
Among the Shaker models available this year are the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker, the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Plus Shaker, and the brand new 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker. The Shaker models are marked by the “functional ‘cold-air grabbing’ hood scoop that ‘shakes’ with the legendary HEMI V8 engine’s movement.”
Just like the original Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood from 1970, today’s Shaker models’ hood scoops are fully functional, directing cool air down into the engine (5.7-liter and new for this 6.4-liter HEMI V8s). But most enthusiasts are more interested in just how badass they look, shaking furiously with the rumble of the engine.
Each Shaker package adds some goodies to the Challenger, in addition to the hood scoop. Throw down $35,495 plus destination for the R/T, and you’ll get hood-to-tail Satin Black Shaker graphic stripes, Shaker hood badges, a Shaker startup screen, a black deck-lid spoiler with Parkview backup camera, and more. The R/T Shaker sits on 20-inch polished aluminum satin finish wheels and comes with the Super Track Pak.
The R/T Plus bumps the price to $38,495 plus destination, but adds a Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen display with a number of goodies, premium floor mats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated and ventilated Nappa leather performance seats with the Shaker logo, among other features. The top of the line 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker runs for $42,495 plus destination and gas guzzler tax but gets you the more powerful 6.4-liter HEMI, plus the Scat Pack Appearance Group and a number of awesome enhancements, both performance and luxury.
*Please note: customers can now order the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker and the R/T Plus Shaker, but the 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker won’t be available until March.
