2014 Dodge Challenger with Mopar Scat package

Dodge and Mopar have brought the Shaker hood back from the dead at the 2013 SEMA Show. The blurry-lettered scoop and high-flow air made their appearance on the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker in Las Vegas. The company also showed off its new Scat Pack upgrades and its annual Mopar vehicles.

Like the original, the shaker scoop is affixed to the engine, which will make it shake when revved, hence the name. A "Shaker" badge will also be under the hood. The show car will also get the Super Track Pack, which includes a high-performance steering gear, brake linings, three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control. All-season radials are also offered.

As for the exterior, Dodge uses its standard orange paint with satin black trim on the hood, roof and trunk. A body-colored grille surround adds accent. The wheels are also finished in satin black.

Inside, the Challenger R/T Shaker gets a new flat-bottomed steering wheel, black instrument panel and center-console bezel. A Shaker numbered dash plaque matches the door bolsters. Upgraded seats hold you in place while Shaker logos adorn the headrests. A pistol-grip shifter is mated to a six-speed Tremec manual transmission.

The Shaker R/T Challenger will arrive at dealerships in early 2014 for $36,995, not including destination.

That Shaker Challenger, according to Dodge, is set up perfectly to accept one or all of its new Scat Package Stage kits, which will be available this spring. Three stages are offered for the Challenger, Charger and Dart, celebrating the 45th anniversary of the Scat Pack Club, the cars with the bumblebee decals.

The stage-one Scat Pack for the Challenger comes with a Mopar cold-air intake, cat-back exhaust and a performance-calibrated engine controller. Stage two adds a hot cam and more performance calibration, and stage three features CNC-ported heads, high-flow headers and additional engine-tuning calibrations.

The Charger Scat Pack includes the same upgrades as the Challenger when equipped with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8. The Scat Pack version also comes with 20-inch wheels, a new side valance, front splitter and rear spoiler.

Inside, the Charger comes with Katzkin leather seats and doors with red accent stitching. Other touches include red seat-belt webbing, red carpet and a red embroidered Dodge Charger logo in the front seats.

The 2014 Dart starts with the 2.4-liter 184-hp engine, which gets bumped up slightly with the Scat Pack stage one cold-air intake. Upgraded brake pads and a new short-throw shifter are also included. Stage two recalibrates the engine management software and adds a cat-back exhaust. Stage three adds a big brake kit, adjustable springs and struts, and front and rear sway bars. Pricing and actual horsepower numbers haven't been revealed by Dodge.
