2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker debuts at the SEMA Show

Article by Andrew Christian, on November 6, 2013

Chrysler unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Show the new 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker. This new model will be easily recognizable due to the legendary “colad-air grabbing” Shaker that sits on the Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop and directs the air into the HEMI V8 engine. Inspired by the 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the 2014 model promises to continue the Dodge tradition.

Under the hood, there is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that produces over 400 lb.-ft. of torque, with a functional Shaker hood with Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Under the hood, there is also a “Shaker” badge, reminiscent of the 1970s original.

In addition, the 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker includes the Super Track Pak, with high-performance steering gear, brake linings and monotube shock absorbers, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control (ESC) with “full off” mode. Moreover, we find the performance-tuned suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and steering calibration.

In terms of design, we find the new “Shaker style” Satin Black hood, roof and deck-lid stripe graphics, a Satin Black deck-lid spoiler, a body-color grille surround, Gloss Black fuel-filler door and polished-face aluminum wheels with black pockets and a satin “matte” clear coat. “Shaker” badges are found on both sides of the hood scoop.

Inside, the Challenger R/T Shaker features a three-spoke flat-bottom leather-wrapped performance steering wheel with black accent finish, a unique “K-Black” painted instrument panel and center-console bezel for a discrete look, a “Shaker” numbered dash plaque, front seats in premium Nappa leather in Dark Slate Gray with Sepia accent stitching or Radar Red with Radar Red stitching.

The interior also comes with an aluminum pistol-grip shifter mated to a track-proven Tremec six-speed manual transmission or black leather-wrapped shift-knob and die-cast paddle shifters on the back of the steering wheel for those who opt for the five-speed automatic gearbox.

If we dot your attention, you will have to known that the 2014 Challenger R/T starts at $36,995 U.S. MSRP ($37,495 with the custom one-of-a-kind hood-to-tail stripes). The new Challenger R/T Shaker is available in these colours: Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy, TorRed and vibrant Header Orange.

Press Release

2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker

Injecting a fresh shot of heritage into the Challenger lineup, the new 2014 R/T Shaker model features unique throwback muscle-car cues that link directly to Dodge brand's performance legacy.

As the model name suggests, the legendary "cold-air grabbing" Shaker not only looks good with its Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop, snorkeling up from the engine compartment, it also directs cooler air back into the HEMI® V-8 engine. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that "shakes" with the powertrain's movement.

Designed for muscle-car buffs who can't help but tinker with their toys, the Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker features the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine producing over 400 lb.-ft. of torque, with a functional Shaker hood with Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Lift the hood and enthusiasts will also be treated to an under-hood "Shaker" badge - reminiscent of the 1970s original.

In addition to its driver-selectable sport-mode powertrain calibration, performance-tuned suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and steering calibration, the Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker includes the Super Track Pak, with high-performance steering gear, brake linings and monotube shock absorbers, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control (ESC) with "full off" mode. All-season performance tires are available at no extra charge.

The new engine setup provides a new factory-designed foundation to maximize three all-new Dodge "Scat Packages," enabling customers to unleash even more power from their Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker.

For a dynamically striking look, a new "Shaker style" Satin Black hood, roof and deck-lid stripe graphics visually translate this Dodge Challenger model's name, while a Satin Black deck-lid spoiler provides the added downforce needed for 155 mph max-speed runs. For contrast, a body-color grille surround and Gloss Black fuel-filler door are added, while all-new 20 x 8-inch polished-face aluminum wheels with black pockets and a satin "matte" clear coat feature a sculptured five-spoke design. For added detail, "Shaker" badges flank both sides of the hood scoop, while "HEMI" fender badges and a new "Challenger" grille badge in classic script completes the iconic exterior.

On the inside, the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker features a unique three-spoke flat-bottom leather-wrapped performance steering wheel with black accent finish and integrated vehicle controls. Corresponding with the steering wheel is a unique "K-Black" painted instrument panel and center-console bezel for a discrete look. Matching the "Shaker" numbered dash plaque are door bolsters with graduated accent stitching that mirrors the logo's artistic reverberation. High-performance front seats with aggressive bolsters in premium Nappa Leather in Dark Slate Gray with Sepia accent stitching or Radar Red with Radar Red stitching, feature the "Shaker" logo embroidered on the seat back, along with unique graduated horizontal plow-throughs. For additional detail, the center console armrest is also leather wrapped and finished with accent thread. The aluminum pistol-grip shifter mated to a track-proven Tremec six-speed manual transmission is standard, while a black leather-wrapped shift-knob and die-cast paddle shifters on the back of the steering wheel are available for those who opt for the performance-tuned five-speed automatic.

Adding to the customized interior environment, with one press of the start button, the Shaker logo appears on the available 6.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen.

The new 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker will arrive at Dodge dealerships in the first-quarter of 2014 with pricing for this very well-equipped model starting at just $36,995 U.S. MSRP ($37,495 with the custom one-of-a-kind hood-to-tail stripes), representing a walk of only $2,500 from the Challenger R/T Classic for all of the unique features of this limited production model.

The new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker is available in Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy, TorRed and vibrant Header Orange.
