New Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker Shipping Shakes Up Fans
Muscle car enthusiasts across the country are shaking with excitement after Dodge announced the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker models are starting to make their way to Dodge dealerships. With their throwback “Shaker” hoods and legendary 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® engine, there’s no surprise that Dodge received 2,000 dealer orders for the R/T Shaker in the span of four days.
“Based on this strong initial demand, it’s clear that our customers are excited about the return of the legendary Shaker model, which was engineered for enthusiasts who asked for even more attitude and a dose of muscle car heritage,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of the Dodge Brand, in a press release. “The 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with the unique hood and intake design makes this performance car an instant classic—much like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood.
Dodge originally introduced the Challenger R/T Shaker model at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas this past November. Now, this sexy muscle car is being shipped out of the brand’s Brampton, Ontario plant with a pretty price tag of $36,995.
