Dodge Turns Up The Retro-Styling on the Challenger

2018 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker.

If you’re a Dodge fan who likes a retro look, and who doesn’t, the folks at Dodge SRT have a little something you might like. The brad is offering an all-new heritage-inspired 2018 model-year Shakedown package. Plus, it’s also bringing back two iconic paint colors.  

Dodge Shakedown Package

The $995 package adds unique asymmetrical black racing stripes that flow up and over the rear deck lid and roof, then around the Shaker hood scoop.

White-face gauges on the instrument cluster and an upgraded Alpine audio system come with it, too. The R/T Shaker receives six premium speakers and a 275-watt amplifier. The R/T Shaker Plus and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker receive nine premium speakers and a 506-watt amplifier.

The package is inspired by the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger that debuted at the 2016 SEMA Show. It’s available on the following Challenger models with all exterior colors:

Challenger R/T Shaker and R/T Plus Shaker:

  • Powered by the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with up to 375-horsepower paired to a standard six-speed manual transmission, or available with the paddle-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.

Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker:

  • Powered by the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine with 485 best-in-class naturally aspirated horsepower paired to a standard six-speed manual transmission, or available with the paddle-shifting TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission

New Hues For 2018

Dodge is also bringing back two of its most popular colors that date back to 1969 and 1970: B5 Blue and Plum Crazy. They’ll be available on all 2018 model-year Chargers and Challenger T/A, T/A Plus and T/A 392 models. All other Challenger models will have late availability.
