More Widebody Challengers, 392 Scat Pack Shaker, T/A Get Flared Fenders

More widebody Dodge Challengers thanks to Shaker and T/A getting massive fender treatment

  • 305-wide tires cut two seconds from lap times

  • SRT-tuned adaptive dampers use all the extra grip


Dodge is going wide, adding the widebody package to even more Challenger models. This time it’s the Scat Pack 392 Shaker and T/A 392 that get the flared fender treatment to help add more traction and give the Challenger more aggressive looks.

It’s a great model, introduce a cool feature on a special new model, and then over the next few years make it available on more models. The extra-wide fenders debuted on the Hellcat back in 2018, adding 3.5-inches of total overall width to the car. That lets SRT fit 305-wide Pirelli 20-inch tires on 11-inch wide wheels to give the car more grip in a straight line and in the corners.

Available last year on Dodge Challenger Scat Pack 392, now on Shaker and T/A 392, both with the 6.4L Hemi V8 making 485 hp and 475 lb-ft. A TorqueFlite eight-speed auto is standard and a six-speed stick is on the options box. Working with the wider tires is an SRT-tuned chassis along with adaptive damping tweaked by FCA’s performance arm. The vehicle includes the SRT Performance Pages drive modes and telemetry and even gets line lock to hold the front tires still and let the rears spin. Dodge says it’s for drag racing, but we all know how it’ll be used.

The package makes the cars 0.2-seconds quicker in the quarter-mile, or around two seconds a lap on FCA’s test track. That’s 12 car lengths over a narrow Scat Pack 392. Shaker gets that rumbling, protruding hood scoop while T/A adds black hood and roof, a 1971-inspired gauge cluster, factory hood pins, and NACA air ducts for the hood.

Orders for the widebodys open later this year, starting from $63,495 for Shaker and $67,495 for T/A, both set to hit dealers in the spring.
