1908

Auburn Hills’ FCA’s Dodge has unveiled its 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320. The car is drag-oriented and street-legal and is powered by the 392 HEMI V-8, which delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque.

With a quarter-mile elapsed time of 11.7 seconds at 115 miles per hour, the showroom-stock 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.

The car is named for the quarter-mile distance of 1,320 feet and has the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission with class-exclusive TransBrake. It also has specially developed Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radial tires that deliver maximum grip and offer repeatable quarter-mile times.

“All it takes is an evening spent at a local drag strip to learn that the grassroots drag-racing community is large and extremely loyal to their cars,” says Steve Beahm, head of passenger car brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and FIAT, FCA – North America. “We created the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 for the heart of the sport, the bracket racer who wants to drive to the track, suit up, go fast, and go home with a big smile and maybe a trophy in the trunk with minimal prep and upkeep.”

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 package adds $3,995 to the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $38,995 for the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack. The mandatory automatic transmission adds $1,595, and the destination charge adds $1,395. The car is slated to be available for dealer orders in late 2018. Vehicles are scheduled to start arriving in dealerships in the first quarter of 2019.
