Dodge//SRT Shakes Things Up

Challenger TR-6060 6-speed manual transmissionHeritage-inspired Shakedown package with TREMEC 6-speed manual transmission

In 2016, Dodge brought a custom 1971 Dodge Challenger to the SEMA show called the Shakedown. It melded modern Challenger parts with the classic model's body, and did so almost seamlessly. It of course featured a shaker hood scoop, and it also had a set of stripes to one side that gradually decreased in size to give the feeling of vibration and movement. The reception was clearly good, because Dodge has created a set of stripes just like those on the show car for modern shaker Challengers and made them available in a package with the Shakedown name.

The Shakedown package is new for 2018 and available only on Challengers with the shaker hood scoop. These include the R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and 392 Scat Pack Shaker. Just like on the concept, the stripes are all to one side and wrap around the hood scoop. The only difference is that they're all one color, whereas the '71 custom car had one stripe in red. In addition to the stripes, the package adds white-face gauges and an upgraded Alpine audio system.

The Shakedown Package is available on the following Challenger models with all exterior colors for a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $995.

  • Challenger R/T Shaker and R/T Plus Shaker:

Powered by the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with up to 375 horsepower paired to a standard TREMEC TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission.

  • Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker:

Powered by the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine with 485 best-in-class naturally aspirated horsepower paired to a standard TREMEC TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission.
