2014 Dodge Challenger with Scat Package

Posted on by  

Chrysler and its subsidiaries — Mopar, in particular — are rolling into the 2013 SEMA Show with quite an amazing entourage of vehicles. Together they have developed over 20 new vehicles for this show, and one of them is a new Scat Package that pays tribute to legendary "Scat Pack Club" offered back in 1968.

The new package comes just in time to celebrate Scat’s 45th anniversary, and it will be offered for the 2014 Dodge Challenger , Charger and Dart models. The new Scat Package will be available starting the spring of 2014.

For the Challenger, the Scat Package is all about bumping up the output of the 5.7-Liter HEMI V-8 and it will come in three different stages: Scat Package 1, 2 and 3. The only issue is that Chrysler has yet to formally announce how the kits will affect the HEMI’s output.

Updated 04/03/2014: Dodge released today performance numbers and prices for the Scat 1, 2 and 3 packages offered for the 2014 Challenger. Check the new numbers after the jump.

Scat Package 1 only includes three engine mods: a Mopar cold-air intake, Mopar cat-back exhaust and performance-calibrated engine controller. With these changes, the 5.7-liter V-8 engine will deliver an extra 18 horsepower and 18 pound-feet of torque, pushing the HEMI to 393 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of toque. If you want these upgrades you’ll have to pay a total of $2,195.

Scat Package 2, includes all of the updates in the first package and tosses in a further-optimized engine calibration and a Mopar performance camshaft. With the Scat Pack 2 installed, the Challenger will deliver an extra 30 horsepower, giving it 405 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. Scat Pack 2 is priced at $1,895 on top of the Scat Package 1.

Scat Package 3 adds in everything that the first two packages offered, plus it tosses in a performance calibration specifically developed for the Scat Package 3, Mopar performance CNC-ported cylinder heads for freer-flowing fuel, air and exhaust, a Mopar performance camshaft, and Mopar high-flow headers. All these updates managed to squeeze another 58 horsepower and 47 pound-feet of torque from the engine, pushing the 5.7-liter V-8 to 433 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. The Scat 3 Package comes in at $4,995 tacked on top of the Scat 1 and Scat 2 prices.

In all three stages, the new Scat Package will also offer an electronic variable quick-dump side exhaust.

The Scat Package also puts the Challenger atop a set of 20-inch Classic II aluminum wheels finished in Hyperblack II with a polished lip. This rims combine with an adjustable suspension kit with a coil-over kit and stabilizer bar to allow the muscle car to take all of this power onto a twisty mountain road.

The Scat Package also adds a few updates inside the cabin. These updates include black Katzkin leather seats with red stitching and a Dodge Challenger logo embroidered in bright red on the front seats, black leather door-panel inserts, a flat-bottom steering wheel and pistol grip shifter.

Red highlights on the seat-belt webbing and carpet bindings combined with satin-black on the chrome bezels, steering wheel, center stack, center console and door handle round out the interior modifications.

Press Release

Good things are coming in many packages for Dodge owners who love performance and delving into Dodge’s rich history.

In honor of the 45th anniversary of the legendary “Scat Pack Club” that played a prominent role in Dodge heritage, Dodge and Mopar today announced the introduction of new Scat Package performance stage kits for the 2014 Dodge Challenger, 2014 Dodge Charger and 2014 Dodge Dart at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

In 1968, Dodge united the brand’s performance vehicle enthusiasts through the creation of the Scat Pack Club. The Scat Pack Club quickly transformed and expanded from an enthusiast club into an over-arching Dodge performance philosophy. This shared philosophy ultimately evolved into the desire for even more performance. Dodge and Mopar brands partnered to respond to this need by delivering factory-engineered performance stage kits that would ultimately become known as “Scat Packages.”

“The Scat Pack performance philosophy has always been the core of Dodge DNA,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “Bringing back factory stage kits allows Dodge enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles.”

Scat Package 1, 2 and 3 kits will be made available for the 2014 Dodge Challenger, Charger and Dart, all at a cost-effective price, allowing enthusiasts to step up performance at their own pace. Each Scat Package kit includes a numbered hard badge associated with its performance stage, so enthusiasts can proudly display the emblem on their vehicle as a badge of honor.

“The new Scat Package kits reinforce our commitment to the performance arena,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “With multiple kits available, we can suit the performance upgrade needs of our owners.”

The Scat Package performance upgrade kits will be available in the Spring of 2014.

Scat Package 1 achieves a significant horsepower boost through three modifications, including a Mopar cold-air intake to provide increased air-flow into the engine, Mopar cat-back exhaust to free up downstream airflow, and an all-new performance calibrated engine controller, optimized to the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine.

Scat Package 2 adds approximately double the horsepower bump and is geared towards the performance enthusiast looking for that competitive edge. In addition to a customized, optimized performance calibration feature tailored for Scat Package 2, a new Mopar performance camshaft works in conjunction with the components of the Scat Package 1 kit to take advantage of improved engine breathing and deliver that additional acceleration advantage.

Scat Package 3 takes aim squarely at the competitive enthusiast who is looking for extreme performance and ultimate bragging rights. Gains of more than three-times that of Scat Package 1 are realized with the customized, optimized performance calibration tailored for Scat Package 3, new Mopar performance CNC-ported cylinder heads, Mopar performance camshaft and Mopar hi-flow headers.

The Scat Package kits offer additional performance upgrades, including an electronic variable quick-dump side exhaust, front and rear strut bars and an adjustable suspension kit with a coil-over kit and stabilizer bar, which guarantees an experience to please all the driving senses. Additional features include a black concept hood and side valence, along with a black fuel filler door, black hood pins and sequential tail lamps.
