A Dodge Challenger ACR Could Be In The Works For The Car’s 50th Anniversary

A Dodge Challenger ACR means power and handling for a more focused track weapon

Yes, that ACR. These are the same three letters, which stand for American Club Racer, that once adorned the Dodge Viper. You’ve read it countless times as to how old the Dodge Challenger actually and here it is again: the 2020 model year will be its 12th. But you know what, it doesn’t matter because everyone loves the big Dodge coupe and a Challenger ACR will further cement that.

And we do mean everyone. The Dodge Challenger has kept pace, and outpaced, it’s main Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro rivals despite being the latter being more modern in almost every respect. From the ultimate Demon to every SRT, R/T, GT and SXT available, the Challenger caters to all tastes. Now, according to moparinsiders, the next cool version is in the works.

A Challenger ACR would be a road-course, or track-focused, iteration of the beloved car. It will feature extra aero bits like an adjustable rear spoiler, large front splitter, the widebody kit, and more. No word as to which engine will power the ACR but there are factory-supported cars that use the Hellcat Redeye’s 797-horsepower supercharged 6.2-litre V8. We’d love to see both a Hellcat and a 392 if mostly because pricing will be more attainable with the 392.
