Dodge Brings Back the Shaker Hood and Scat Pack

The Return of the Dodge Shaker is Upon Us

 

In the 1970’s Dodge first unveiled a Dodge Shaker. The name referenced the special Shaker hood developed by Dodge which was known for its large hood active air intakes which protruded separately from the rest of the hood sheet metal and pulled air directly in to the 426 HEMI engine. The name Shaker was derived due to the fact that the direct connection to the engine caused the intake to shake right along with the rumble of the engine.

Today, the Shaker is returning for coupling with the newest generation of Dodge HEMI engines. Available in a limited edition run, the 2014 Shaker R/T features the famed shaker hood from the 1970’s with the air intake nostrils popping out from the engine bay through the opening in the vehicle’s hood.

The Shaker R/T was one of the darlings of SEMA this year, but, if you’re hoping to get one you’ll have to act fast, as Dodge will only be producing 1,000 of these special edition vehicles. The Dodge Challenger Shaker R/T will go on sale for a very reasonable $36,995, and will be released officially in the first quarter of 2014. They will be part of a series of special edition vehicles intended to celebrate Dodge’s 100th anniversary in 2014.

In addition to the Shaker R/T, Dodge also officially announced the return of their Scat Pack Club. The Scat Pack Club was a performance enthusiast organization specifically designed to offer special performance packages to Dodge vehicle owners. The Scat Pack Club today will feature upgrades and special badges for the Dodge Challenger, Charger, and Dart.
