Enamored of the Dodge Challenger but wish you could get one with a shaker hood? We've got good news, because Dodge and Mopar have teamed up to bring it back.

The 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker packs the same 5.7-liter Hemi V8 as the standard Challenger R/T, but upgrades the business end with a through-the-hood exposed cold-air intake system. The retro hood scoop protrudes from the center of the hood in satin black (matching the decklid spoiler) to feed the Hemi and shakes with the engine just like the original from 1970. The Shaker model also comes with a Super Track Pak that adds a new steering rack, brake linings, shocks and 20-inch Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car rubber. You can also shut off the stability management system completely in this car. A series of interior and exterior trim enhancements round out the look. The whole package adds $2,500 to the price of a Challenger R/T Classic for an all-in MSRP of $36,995.

2014 Dodge Challenger Mopar EditionIn case that's not enough, Dodge is also offering a limited-edition Mopar Challenger that follows the 2010 Mopar Challenger, 2011 Mopar Charger, 2012 Mopar 300 and 2013 Mopar Dart. Limited to just 100 examples, the 2014 Mopar Challenger gets the same Shaker hood intake, unique graphics and wheels, an enhanced interior and a long list of optional extras from the Mopar parts catalog. Dodge isn't saying just yet how much the Mopar Challenger will cost, but you can bet it will command a considerable premium for the exclusivity alone.

Dodge and Mopar are presenting both of these special Challengers at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week, but if you're not in Vegas, you can read more about them in the press release below and scope them out in our pair of high-res image galleries.

HEMI® "Shaker" Returns – 2014 Challenger R/T and Mopar '14 Challenger Models Deliver Power, Performance and Even More Heritage-inspired Style For Hardcore Dodge and Mopar Enthusiasts

- With its functional ―Shaker‖ hood and unmistakable Dodge muscle-car cues, the new 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker marks the return of one of the brand's most coveted performance options
- Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker features the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine with unique hood and intake design combined with a functional exposed-element cold-air intake system
- New Mopar '14 Challenger model revealed: only 100 serialized coupes will be built, offering "Mopar-or-no-car" fans the rarest factory-produced Dodge Challenger model to date with unique "Moparized" equipment
- All-new Dodge Scat Packages unleash more horsepower and torque thanks to three Mopar-engineered stage kits arriving in Spring 2014


Dodge and Mopar brands are "shaking" it up at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association's (SEMA) annual show in Las Vegas. The two Detroit-born brands are teaming up to reveal the new 2014 Challenger R/T Shaker and Mopar '14 Challenger models, all engineered for hard-core enthusiasts who demand more throwback style with easily upgradable performance.

"The legendary Shaker performance hood is back, with its engine-mounted, fully floating scoop and exposed high-flow element that produces cold-air induction – making the new 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker the real deal," said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge Brand. "With Challenger having its best sales-year ever, the time is right to provide our most loyal fans with the return of the Shaker, and even more power with new 'Scat Package,' performance stage kits."

"With Mopar engineers working alongside Dodge designers and engineers, we created these factory-proven products to amplify performance and style in a way that no one else can," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC's service, parts and customer-care brand. "The 'Shaker', 'Scat Packages' and our new Mopar '14 celebrate customized performance."

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

Introducing the New Mopar '14: Only 100 of the new limited-edition vehicles will be built
Taking the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker one step further, the Mopar brand revealed its new Mopar '14 Challenger – the rarest limited-production Challenger model announced to date (only 100 to be made), with a distinct "Moparized" look. Additionally, the new Mopar '14 is engineered to take on any combination of the three all-new "Scat Packages."

"The Mopar '14 is yet another factory-engineered example of how Mopar can make even limited-edition muscle cars like the Challenger even more special," said Gorlier. "With three new ‗Scat Packages' and more than 100 proven, quality-tested Mopar performance parts and accessories available for the Dodge Challenger, Mopar makes it simple through its one-stop customization shop."

The Mopar '14 Challenger features Bright White or Gloss Black exterior paint, and in keeping with tradition to its limited-edition predecessors - the Mopar '10 Challenger, Mopar '11 Charger, Mopar '12 300 and Mopar '13 Dart - is highlighted by the "Shaker style" stripe in "Mopar Blue." For an even more customized look, two additional Mopar Blue stripe options are available, including an all-new "rocker panel" bodyside triple stripe runs with "MOPAR" across the doors; or for an even bolder look, an all-new A-line bodyside stripe that wraps over the deck lid and includes the Mopar "Omega M" logo on the rear-quarter. Enthusiasts hungering for a taste of the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker's legendary heritage will find satisfaction in the Mopar '14 Challenger. Its all-new Satin Black Shaker hood scoop stands out with its raised profile and "Shaker" logo reverberating while the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 is running. Other unique design elements to contrast the Bright White paint include all-new 20 x 8-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with Mopar center caps, a unique Black Vapor grille surround, Black fuel-filler door and Gloss Black deck-lid spoiler with Gloss Black "Mopar Design" badge and "Mopar" quarter-glass decals.

Providing a factory-customized look is the Mopar '14 model's Dark Slate interior embellished with unique Mopar appointments. Performance front seats with aggressive bolsters in premium black Nappa Leather feature Mopar Blue accent thread and Mopar Omega M logos embroidered on the seat backs. Additionally, Mopar Blue thread binds the seams of the armrest, pistol-grip shifter boot and three-spoke leather-wrapped performance steering wheel.

As the Mopar '14 ownership should be as unique as the ride itself, Mopar created a serialized instrument panel plaque, customized monroney label and "Mopar" branded key fobs. The Mopar-designed vehicle tradition continues, as owners of the Mopar '14 Challenger will receive a custom-crafted personalized owner's kit with a Mopar '14 brochure, unique Mopar '14 memorabilia, and customized items crafted with the serial number of each vehicle.

The new Mopar '14 takes vehicle customization to new heights. Already equipped with unique Mopar Design accessories from the factory, customers of the Mopar '14 will be able to add even more catalog accessories installed at the Mopar Custom Shop before arriving to their local dealer. And to take it even further, customers can choose to take it up another notch with Mopar accessories from their dealership.

Available Mopar Custom Shop upfitted items include:
- Mopar short-throw shifter
- Mopar cat-back exhaust
- Mopar performance suspension
- Mopar lowering springs
- Mopar Electronic Vehicle Tracking System (EVTS)
- Mopar performance badges
- Mopar hood pin kit
- Mopar car cover
- Mopar door-sill guards
- Mopar sequential taillight kit
- Mopar premium floor mats or slush mats
- Mopar chrome exhaust tip
- Mopar fuel-filler door
- Mopar wheel locks
- Mopar interior trim bezel kit

The limited-edition Mopar '14 Challenger is the fifth special-edition vehicle created by the Mopar brand, and will arrive straight from the factory in Brampton, Ontario, to dealerships in the second quarter of 2014. Pricing will be announced at a later date. Ordering will begin in March 2014.

All-new Dodge "Scat Packages"
"Mopar-or-no-car." A phrase Dodge and Mopar enthusiasts live by, and the reason these two brands have collaborated to revive the historic Dodge "Scat Packages" for hard-core "do-it-yourself" Challenger owners. From cold-air intakes, performance cam shafts and "optimized" engine calibrations, Scat Packages 1, 2 and 3 enable Challenger R/T Shaker - as well as other 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 Dodge Challenger and Charger models - maximum performance solutions designed and tested from the factory.

Mopar (a simple contraction of the words Motor and PARts) was trademarked for antifreeze product in 1937. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s – the muscle-car era.

Mopar carried a line of ―special parts‖ for super-stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling for both road and racing use. The brand has expanded to include technical service and customer support.

      Kind of sad that Dodge has done really nothing to this car since 2008. I'm hoping the 2015 model will be awesome because it will HAVE to be to compete w/the new 2015 Mustang w/IRS. I'm a Mopar fan through and through (I have a '70 Challenger 'vert, '71 'Cuda 'vert, 2004.5 Dodge Cummins 2500 4x4, wife has a 2006 300c SRT8), but the Challenger needs to compete! No convertible option, and no car to compete w/the Shelby GT500 and ZL1 Camaro. *fingers crossed for 2015*

        That's the thing though, this really doesn't compete with the Mustang. Dodge themselves even acknowledges that, and that's why a smaller car is planned under the SRT banner. This is an altogether larger, comfier, cruiser-esque car compared to the Mustang. That's it's appeal for a lot of people.

      I don't get why people by these cars. To me they are just cheap plastic replicas of the originals. Just save some money and buy the original, it will actually be an investment and it will actually turn heads. For the price of one of these plastic made re-runs you can get into a nice 70's version that actually looks better IMO. I don't know is it just me? I am only 36 years old and that's how I think, I just don't get why people shell out money on these classic plastic replicas, just go buy the actual one.

        well, I'm 59 years old, and was in high school in 1970. if you want to see "plastic junk", then you should have been around then. don't care if it was a Mustang, Camaro, or Challenger, they were poorly-assembled garbage. I'm a Chrysler guy, but the 1970 Challenger in its factory form was indeed junk. the door panels were one huge piece of plastic, and the doors shut with a "thunk". the paint looked like the assembly line painters held up an orange for inspiration before they painted the car. the grossly over restored cars you see today are not the slightest bit representative to what they looked like when they were new. the quality on today's cars is unbelievable, and six cylinder versions of today's muscle cars will run away and hide from any of the old V-8 powered muscle cars. today's V-8s will leave any old 440, 426 HEMI, 396, 427, Boss 302 or 429 in the weeds. now be honest here; which is more efficient, a carburetor or multi-port fuel injection? do you even know what a carburetor is, or how a car drives with one? I can speak honestly about this because I have a 1970 plum crazy Challenger RT convertible (440) that parks right next to a 2013 plum crazy Challenger convertible (Drop Top Classics conversion) in my garage. other than styling cues and the manufacturer, the two share nothing in common. the new one will out handle, out accelerate, and outperform the old one in every way. cowl shake with the top down on the new one is non-existent; the old one will shake you to death on a bumpy road.

          @reattadudes
          @ Bill Burke: I think what reattadudes meant is that the assembly quality of cars in the 1970's was poor compared to cars of today. My father (a "baby boomer" at 58 years old) actually says the same thing despite loving cars from his youth, even telling stories of door handles coming off in his hands on new Fords (he retired from Ford in Dearborn, MI), and that most new cars back then only came with 1 year warranties because they were worn out and ready for the junkyard not long after that. I think no one cared how solidly the doors closed, or how well the paint was applied on new cars back then, because there was nothing better to compare them to (except maybe exotic cars). Loving & having respect for classic cars isn't the same as being realistic about how they were built in that era.

          So sad. So sad you can't use a little imagination and tolerate some writers liberty in enjoying a salute to the past, if not an out right revival of something unique in muscle car and Dodge history. Lets have some fun again, kindly let a whole new generation experience and recapture in some small way the care free and joyous time when no one gave a damn what sound a door made in closing or how well paint was applied when the only thing that mattered was that Mopars were the fastest, most exciting and bold cars on the road. FYI, I too have proudly owned a 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T that was all original mechanically for over 40 years. Although the paint was faded and some rust was beginning to show,it was trouble free, ran perfectly and most everything still worked before I had it fully over restored as my personal tribute to a unique era in American automotive history. Oh, and my "junk" is worth a whole lot not because it is better than the admittedly much better new stuff, it's because it's not and that experience is what makes the ride so special. You and I are so lucky to drive a very special and valuable piece of history. Enjoy!

          Well I guess I am just old fashioned. I just hate that these companies are basically watering down their old nostalgic names. It's like when Mercedes came out with the SLS yeah its a totally different car then the original 300SL, but I just can't stand that comparison and styling queues from the originals, it's something of a disgrace to the original to me. These cars were classic cars, I just don't see these modern day versions of them becoming classics like their originals because to me the originals are always better, yes the tech is better on the remakes but in the end it's still a remake. It's like having a copy version of a picasso yeah ok the copy will never fade and peel because it's a copy but it's still not original. I guess it's just me. I don't mind these cars I just feel these companies need to come up with something original don't use the classic names and styling it just makes them look cheap to me.

        If my 2010 Challenger turned more heads, the local chiropractors would be rich. I rarely go two days without a question about it, and rarely three without a thumbs up, a "I had one back in 197X!", or they say, "Nice Charger!" which kind of saddens me. Unless it's raining or really cold out, getting gas always gets a comment or question about it from people 10 to about 80. Does a '70 look better? Sure, but everyday driving one is not really possible, unless you have a lot of money and are willing to lose a lot of value.
