A Detailed Look at 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Pricing

While the arrival of the 2015 Dodge Challenger configuration page on Dodge.com had us glued to the Hellcat section, the new Challenger Scat Pack is the model that I foresee making the biggest splash on the American performance market so today, we offer you a detailed look at the pricing for the new Scat Pack trimline.

While a great many dreamers would tell you that if they were buying a 2015 Dodge Challenger today, they would be picking the 707hp SRT Hellcat model, the fact of the matter is that the Hellcat simply isn’t for everyone. At $60,990, the starting price is roughly double that of your average modern muscle car and with 707 horsepower on tap, the Hellcat is both too extreme for most people to handle while also being too expensive to insure for the average driver.

Fortunately, the 2015 model year brings about the introduction of the new Challenger Scat Pack trimline that takes the “normal” Challenger R/T, adds the 6.4L Hemi from the SRT lineup, bolts up a bigger braking package and adds a stiffer suspension system to create one mean and surprisingly affordable muscle car.

2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Pricing
When you enter the Dodge.com build page for the 2015 Dodge Challenger, you will find that the new R/T Scat Pack trimline starts at only $38,495, which when added to the $1,000 Gas Guzzler Tax and the $995 destination fee rises to $39,490. This price includes the 6.4L Hemi mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, package specific 20 inch black wheels, a high performance Bilstein suspension system, a Brembo brake package featuring 4 piston front calipers and large slotted rotors, a black front chin spoiler, a black rear decklid spoiler, the unique active exhaust package and the new Dodge Performance Pages App in the infotainment system. For under $40,000, you get all of those features in a muscle car with 485 horsepower and 475lb-ft of torque and while opting for the 8-speed automatic transmission raises the list price by $1,400, automatic buyers don’t pay Gas Guzzler Tax so the price only actually jumps by $400, so the Scat Pack Challenger starts at just $39,890.

For comparison, the 2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium with comparable features and “only” 435 horsepower starts at $36,925 while the comparably equipped 2015 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS with 426 horsepower starts at $38,300. Both of those prices include the standard manual transmission and while the Mustang GT Premium comes in a few thousand south of the Challenger Scat Pack, the considerably less powerful Camaro SS is very similar in price. In fact, if you add the Camaro’s performance exhaust package that tacks on an additional 6 horsepower the Camaro 2SS coupe starts at $39,195 before any other options. In other words, Challenger Scat Pack buyers pay slightly more in “base” form compared to a Camaro 2SS, but that difference of $695 is more than worth it when you consider the fact that you are getting an additional 53 horsepower with the Challenger.

Option Pricing for the 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack
In terms of options, there are plenty of choices to make when building your ideal 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack on Dodge.com. First off, you have 7 free exterior colors to pick from including Billet Silver, Bright White, Granite Crystal, Jazz Blue, Pitch Black, Sublime Green and TorRed while Phantom Black Tricoat and Ivory White Tricoat will cost you an extra $500. If you pick any exterior color other than Sublime, you get your choice of either a black interior or a black interior with Radar Red seats while Sublime Challenger owners only get to an all-black interior, but that’s just fine by me. For me, it would be Sublime and Black all day, every day.

After picking your favorite exterior hue for your 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, it is onto the real option page and, unlike the Hellcat, there are quite a few options to pick through.

First off, 2015 Challenger Scat Pack owners have five different preferred equipment groups to pick from including Sound Group II, Driver Convenience Group, Leather Interior Group, Technology Group and Scat Pack Appearance Group.

The details for each package are listed below:
Sound Group II - $595: 506 Watt Amplifier, 9 Speakers

Driver Convenience Group - $795: Blind Spot/Rear Cross Path Detection, High Intensity Discharge Headlamps, Power Multi-Function Mirrors, Remote Start and a Universal Garage Door Opener

Leather Interior Group - $1,500: Heated/Ventilated Front Seats, Heated Steering Wheel, Unique “Hectic Mesh” Interior Bezels, Instrument Panel with a Satin Silver Bezel, Suede/Nappa Leather High Performance Seats with the R/T logo and a Power Tilt/Telescope Steering Column

Technology Group - $195: Adaptive Speed Control (Automatic transmission only), Automatic High Beam Headlamp Control, Rain Sensing Wipers and Forward Collision Warning (Automatic transmission only)

Scat Pack Appearance Group - $1,995: 20 x 9-Inch Lightweight Forged Aluminum Wheels, a Satin Black Fuel Filler Door, Gloss Black Grille, High Intensity Discharge Headlamps and a Scat Pack Bumblebee Stripe.

For my money, I would most certainly pick the Scat Pack Appearance Group, the Leather Interior Group and the Driver Convenience Group which, when combined with the base price of $39,490, gives me a price of $43,780.

After picking the packages that you like best for your 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, you then get to pick from a collection of standalone options including a Power Sunroof for $1,195, a $495 hood stripe for those models not equipped with the Scat Pack Appearance Group and the navigation system upgrade that tacks on an additional $695. I would opt for the nav and the sunroof in addition to my package choices for a grand total of $45,680 and that exact same car with the 8-speed automatic transmission would cost $46,080.

Those who insist on having every single option package and optional item on their 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack can expect to pay $46,460 for all five packages, all of the available standalone items and the manual transmission while every feature and the automatic transmission will run you roughly $46,860.

When you price it out with all of the available options, the price of the 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack can get to be pretty hefty but that base price of $39,490 includes everything that you really need to have tons of fun…and to hand a sound beating to Mustang GT and Camaro SS drivers who might step up to the Hemi powered Challenger on the road or track.
