Dodge Challenger Gets New Heritage-Inspired Options


The Dodge Challenger has added a new Shakedown Package to its lineup.

Now available on the Challenger R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, and 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker, the Shakedown Package adds a new Alpine audio system, white-face gauges on the instrument cluster, and unique asymmetrical black racing exterior stripes. The features of the package are inspired by the 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger Concept, first shown at the 2016 SEMA Show.

In addition, the iconic B5 Blue and Plum Crazy exterior paint colors are now available on all Charger models and Challenger T/A, T/A Plus, and T/A 392 models. The two paint shades will be added to all other Challenger models at a later date.
