Dodge debuts Challenger R/T Scat Pack ‘1320’ Edition

Dodge has announced the release of a new Challenger edition, the R/T Scat Pack 1320. The car, named for the distance in feet of a quarter mile, is a drag-oriented, street-legal muscle car designed with the grassroots drag racer in mind.

Powered by the dependable and powerful 392 Hemi V8 that delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque, the 1320 comes with the bulletproof 8HP70 TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new member of the Scat Pack family is packed with exclusive drag strip technology from the iconic Dodge Challenger SRT Demon including SRT-tuned Adaptive Damping Suspension with Drag Mode, Line Lock, transbrake, Torque Reserve and extreme-duty 41-spline half shafts.

The standard interior features a driver’s seat only to help reduce weight. The front passenger seat and rear seat are available as individual $1 options.

For rubber, Dodge has chosen specially developed Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radial tires that deliver maximum grip and offer repeatable quarter-mile times.

All of these features result in an elapsed quarter-mile time of 11.7 seconds at 115 mph, making the showroom-stock 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.

Exterior touches include a new interpretation of the legendary Dodge Super Bee logo, the “Angry Bee,” which marks the front fenders, illuminated Air Catcher headlamps, instrument panel and startup splash screen in the gauge cluster.

As for paint, the launch vehicle sported a custom “Black Eye” high-impact exterior color. The unique 1320-themed paint scheme on the Mopar Dodge Top Fuel dragster driven by Don Schumacher Racing star Leah Pritchett will help commemorate the unveiling of the new Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 during the Dodge Mile-High NHRA Nationals Powered by Mopar, July 20-22 at Bandimere Speedway in Denver.

“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,” says Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA – North America.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Package adds $3,995 to the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) 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 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 will be available for dealer orders in late 2018; vehicles are scheduled to start arriving in a dealership in the first quarter of 2019.
