The 2021 Dodge Challenger Wide Body Packages

Details brought to you by Gillman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Houston, TX

Recently announced by Dodge are the new Widebody packages available on the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker and Challenger T/A 392. The Widebody packages offer a combination of unique legacy appointments on both cars and improved performance with wider wheels and tires.

First, what is the legacy of the Challenger T/A?

Well, it's changed over the years. The first Challenger T/A was a car built for the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) Trans Am (T/A) racing series in 1970. (Interestingly, with only 2,399 ever built, the original Challenger T/A is one of the most sought-after muscle cars of all time.) What defined the T/A was that they were designed to race and handle curves as well as going real fast in a straight line. Mechanically unique and striking in appearance, they were unlike other E body cars. Trans Am racing series has evolved over the years but continues today as the main road racing event for drivers and manufacturers driving GT style race cars. Today, the 2021 Challenger T/A 392 is the Hemi-powered T/A model built by Dodge.

And, what is a the legacy of the R/T Scat Pack Shaker?

The R/T designation is the performance package used on Dodge automobiles since the 1960s, much like Chevrolet Super Sport designation. R/T stands for Road/Track. Dodge R/T models usually come with R/T badging and a combination of upgraded suspension, tires, brakes, and often more powerful engines. The 2021 Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker is both a performance and comfort upgrade over the base R/T Scat Pack model. It is enhanced with the addition of the legendary cold-air grabbing Shaker, which extends up from the engine compartment to direct cooler air back into the engine.

What features does the 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody offer?

The 2021 Dodge Challenger T/A 392 Widebody builds on the Challenger T/A legacy with unique appointments and performance hardware, which include such features as:
-          Painted Satin Black hood, Satin Black wrap roof, and deck lid with roof and deck-lid graphics

What features does the 2021 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Shaker offer?

The Widebody on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack builds on the standard R/T Scat Pack with unique appointments such as: 
-          305/35ZR20 Pirelli tires mounted to 20-by-11-inch wheels
