While the Chrysler Group was most concentrated on the new 1971-esque styling of the 2015 Dodge Challenger, the bigger news was the introduction of the new R/T Scat Pack models that are powered by the 392 cubic inch Hemi – and today we take a closer look at the features of the new Scat Pack Challenger.

The 392 cubic inch, 6.4L Hemi V8 has previously been reserved for vehicles from the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) brand, but beginning with the 2015 model year – the new Dodge Challenger R/T can be ordered with this powerful engine. The 392 Hemi is available in two R/T-based trimlines; the 6.4L Scat Pack and the 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker. These two premium trimlines both come with the same 392 cubic inch Hemi with an estimated power output of 485 horsepower and 475lb-ft of torque with all of that powered being channeled to the wheels by means of a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 8-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler claims that, when mated to the 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2015 Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker can dash from a stop to 60 miles per hour in the mid 4 second range while running through the quarter mile in the low 12 second range. The 392 Hemi 2015 Challenger will also reach a very impressive top speed of 182 miles per hour.

Whoa. . How cool is that! A 392 scat pack. Have a 2012 SRT 392. I think the scat pack idea is right on. Looking forward to seeing the new SRT!
I am a Dodge/Chrysler owner having owned 2xRam 1500 Sport, and a Aspen limited. Looking at getting a Challenger now, but the differences b/w the 6.4L Scat Pack and the 392 Hemi Scat Pack is a bit confusing. Am I to understand that the difference is just cosmetic? Do they both have a 6.4L or is one 6.2L? I need to see a brochure to see what each one has. Am I to assume the 392 Hemi Scat Pack is the Premium/Limited version which is the top version of the SRT8?
Correct. Just cosmetic. Both have the 6.4L (6.2L is the Hellcat) one has the shaker hood and stripes and the other with the Scat Pack Appearance group has the rear scat pack stripe and shaker stripe delete. Plus the Scat pack appearance group has interior extras; bumblebee on the seats and floor mats and bumblebee start up screen.
