June 28, 2016

MP015_004MOThe supercharged 354-cubic-inch Gen III HEMI®-powered Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is leaving its marks on race tracks across the country this summer and with help from Dodge and Mopar, you too can tear up the track with a Scat Pack performance upgrade kit.

  • The Mopar brand unveiled the next-generation Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, a factory-prepped package car specifically geared for drag racing.

The Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak made its competition debut in the Factory Stock (FS/XX) class at this year’s NHRA Gatornationals with a solid 8.568 second pass at 159.14 mph to make the eight-car field for Factory Stock Shootout.

If you feel the need for speed, a total of 60 new-generation Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak vehicles have been built for serious customers. That includes 35 with the supercharged 354-cubic-inch Gen III HEMI® engine and 25 with a naturally aspirated 426-cubic-inch Gen III HEMI engine.

These factory-prepped package cars are specifically designed for passionate Sportsman racers who compete in nationally-sanctioned drag racing series. They are non-street legal. All 60 vehicles have already been ordered and shipped to dealerships, so to get behind the wheel, prospective racers will need to contact an FCA US dealership with a Drag Pak still in its showroom.

Too Much Power?

While the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is for race tracks only, Dodge offers some comparable vehicles for self-proclaimed speed freaks. There are other powerful Scat Pack models in the Dodge lineup, including the Challenger R/T Scat Pack, the Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker and of course the SRT Hellcat.

Extreme Personalization

You can retrofit your current Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger with Scat Pack performance upgrade kits offered by Dodge and Mopar. Scat Pack 1, 2 and 3 kits for the Dodge Challenger and Charger allow enthusiasts to transform their vehicles from daily drivers into track-ready rides that can also be driven on the regular road. Owners can step up performance in stages and at their own pace. Each Scat Pack 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 Pack 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.”

Scat Pack 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 Pack 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 Pack 2, a new Mopar performance camshaft works in conjunction with the components of the Scat Pack 1 kit to take advantage of improved engine breathing and deliver that additional acceleration advantage.

Scat Pack 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 Pack 1 are realized with the customized, optimized performance calibration tailored for Scat Pack 3, new Mopar performance CNC-ported cylinder heads, Mopar performance camshaft and Mopar hi-flow headers. Scat Pack 2 and 3 are track-only vehicles.

Mopar Scat Pack kits are available through an authorized dealership.

As for the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak? The final event of the season takes place at the prestigious U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis, Labor Day weekend, August 31 through September 5.
