2014 Dodge Challenger Shaker

Reviving a feature first seen on its predecessor back in 1970, the new 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker has made its debut. Named for the unique Satin Black engine-mounted hood scoop that shakes as it sits atop of the car’s powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 which is fed cool air via a custom induction system, this modern-day muscle car also comes with a host of other performance-enhancing components. The new Shaker model is available in six exterior colors: Billet Silver Metallic, Bright White, Pitch Black, Plum Crazy, TorRed and vibrant Header Orange.

Under its hood, the new Challenger Shaker houses a 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8 engine combined with a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and an optimized air box for improved airflow and performance. Dodge established that it will deliver more than 400 pound-feet of torque. The V-8 HEMI engine is mated to either a Tremec six-speed manual transmission as standard, or the optional, performance-tuned five-speed automatic. In both versions the new Shaker can hit a top speed of 155 mph. The car rides on 20-by-8-inch, polished-face aluminum wheels in a five-spoke design. Dodge also added in a performance-tuned suspension with mono-tube shocks, four-wheel disc brakes with performance brake linings, a special steering calibration for quicker response, P245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 Super Car three-season tires and three-mode electronic stability control with a “full off” mode for more driver involvement. Visit a Scottsdale Dodge dealer for more information.

Inside, the Challenger Shaker is upgraded, thanks to new high-performance front seats wrapped in premium Dark Slate Grey Leather with Sepia accent stitching or Radar Red with Radar Red stitching, with a “Shaker” logo is embroidered on each seat back. The new Shaker Challenger also received a three-spoke, flat-bottom performance steering wheel wrapped up in leather with black accent finish and integrated vehicle controls.

The Challenger Shaker comes standard with a 6.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen, a leather-wrapped center console armrest, an aluminum pistol-grip shifter or a black, leather-wrapped shifter knob and die-cast paddle shifters.
