That "Shaker" package sounds like a cross between a "Classic" and a "Mopar 10".

Are the 3.92 rear gears standard on it for the 6-spd AND auto? (Just like on the "Mopar 11 & 12"s)

The default transmission is the Tremec 6-speed, 20" wheels and the 3.91 final drive (w/ std. anti-spin 226mm diff).

When the automatic is ordered, the 215mm (open) diff with 3.06 gearing is substituted for the Getrag 226mm/anti-spin/3.91 diff.

Its similar in the way the Mopar Exterior Appearance Group (T/A style hood scoop, strobe stripe & go-wing) was only offered on the R/T, R/T Plus models, but not on SRT model.

2014 SRT Cherokee w 392 Hemi has 8 Spd Auto Transmission available (see June issue Road & Track mag). Does anyone know why it isn't being offered on the Challenger? They can't use the excuse "can't handle the Hemi torque" anymore. It seems like it would be an awesome optional item.

I believe I read it's because it won't fit the current Challenger configuration, they would have to redesign the floor plan of the car and that didn't sound like something they were willing to do at this point.

Hey RS, can you give a list of details about the SRT Core Challenger. A club member just bought one. Very interesting. Pull the 392 vinyl decal off of the side and it could be a total sleeper car. Almost looks like an SE/SXT. What all is left off of the standard SRT package to make it a SRT Core. Thanx in advance.

Wasn't there a picture from one of the autoshows that showed the Challenger with the proposed shaker? Also glad to see an upgrade in the seats. I hope the premium seats are like the SRT suede insert seats, those rock!

One question, why can't a package like the "shaker" or the "exterior appearance" be an option on the SRT or Core?

Thanks RS!!!

Dodge seems pretty consistent with $2,000 extra for their special edition sticker pkgs...this one may be a tad more since its got something more than just stickers...id expect $3k-4k

is the 3.92 rear end on Auto's too?...this should make the auto quite a bit faster that the stick

also noticed a body colored fuel door...does this mean no more fake 1970's appearance FUEL door? will it have a smooth fuel door like a normal car?

I really hope one of the late-availability colors is B5, DWB, BSP or some other cool blue! I'm sorry, but I really don't like Jazz Blue and was slightly depressed to see it made a comeback. The Shaker package sounds awesome, though, and I can't wait to see it.

As far as everyone asking why the Shaker isn't available on the SRT - I think that's because the SRT has a completely different engine. Dodge would have to engineer a completely different Shaker setup for the 6.4. Since the SRT is a low-volume car, it wouldn't make financial sense for them to offer it on the high-end cars. Besides, they have the Core model which is already a different SRT appearance package.

Besides, they have the Core model which is already a different SRT appearance package.

Their are after-market shakers already in production for Challenger R/T and SRT. For example:

Shaker (http://www.cervinis.com/dodge-challenger-08-12-challenger-hoods-shaker.html) and

Dodge Challenger Shaker Hood System | Danko Reproductions (http://www.dankoreproductions.com/store/dodge-challenger/dodge-challenger-shaker-hood-system)

I can't imagine any scenario where the same small block engine size matters. Dodge will get their money either way, if its on a 5.7 or 6.4. This has to come down to marketing strategy (ie., releasing sublime later in the MY). If the R/T w/Shaker package sells well, I would guess they'd put it on the SRT at some point. Then again, we are talking about Dodge, and if any of the OP's reasons are actually valid, then Dodge's management and marketing decisions are even more suspect than I originally thought.

I would put money on the SRTs never getting a Shaker option.

I think it's awesome that they're doing the Shaker package, even though it will only be on R/Ts. The SRT8 Core is pretty cool, too. It brings the price of the 392 down into the realm of a Mustang GT or Camaro SS where it can actually compete. Personally, I wouldn't spend $50k+ on a SRT8 when I could get a 662 HP GT500 for just a few grand more. But I would spend $40k on a SRT8 instead of a Mustang GT.

I would put money on the SRTs never getting a Shaker option.

I think it's awesome that they're doing the Shaker package, even though it will only be on R/Ts. The SRT8 Core is pretty cool, too. It brings the price of the 392 down into the realm of a Mustang GT or Camaro SS where it can actually compete. Personally, I wouldn't spend $50k+ on a SRT8 when I could get a 662 HP GT500 for just a few grand more. But I would spend $40k on a SRT8 instead of a Mustang GT.

I have to agree with you WyoHemi. After looking at the previous R/T appearance packages, they never made it to the SRT.

Good point however, I did not want to "invest" in a one year old car if times comes that you have to trade in a SRT in a few years the 2014 will be worth more than a 2013 at least this is how I look at it.
I was just wishing that the 2014's would have come out with a 6 speed Auto............

The law basically says they cannot "void" your warranty for any reason. They can refuse repairs, but only if they can prove it was an aftermarket part that caused the specific failure/damage.

i bought my SRT used from a Ford dealership. They had a 2013 GT500 there. I asked about the price. They said it should sell for around $85k.


I said F that, I want to see the SRT.

A lot of dealers will try to price gouge specialty models. GT500s are especially bad because they are actually fairly hard to come by. I'm pretty sure they're a lot rarer than SRT8s. Anyway, it usually backfires and those dealers end up sitting on expensive cars for a long time. $20-30k over sticker for a car is asinine.

I'm in the same boat as you. I saw "Shaker package" and said "Oh Yeah". Then I saw "Sport Suspension" and said "Never mind". Yes, it would be SRT-like. Ride is moderately harsher than the regular RT Performance suspension. Handling is better but only counts if you're driving very "spiritedly" around corners. It will also lower ride height 1" which I also don't like mainly due to the places I have to drive. In fact, I just contacted my dealership to see if there would be any problem swapping my STP springs for regular RT springs. They didn't know and sent the question on to Dodge, which doesn't surprise me since they are the one's who insisted 6-speeds have MDS. Oh to have a competent dealership somewhere near. That's my dream.

I have no choice to not get the sport suspension if I want the Shaker Package. It is mandatory with it.

So the sport suspension doesn't hurt ride? It is to help handling. Stiffer suspensions always hurt ride. My question is how much?

Thanks for a complete answer.

Looks like I may have to rent an SRT Challenger from a high end rental, just to see if I can live with the rougher ride. I like the 1" drop but don't want to pay a price in ride to get it. Roads are beat up and just getting worse and worse all the time. I'm tired of being jiggled all the way down the road in rough riding cars. I wan't something smoother.

Maybe I'll just get a 2015 and order the shaker scoop and hood from the parts department. I like the reduced cost that comes from packaging popular options together, but the modern practice often drives me nuts, forcing me into options I strongly don't want just to get an option that is only available in a package.

Here is to hoping the 2015's have a cosmetic package without the stiffer riding suspension, but I highly doubt it.

Thanks for the useful answer. I really appreciate it.

Well I guess it's all relative. I grew up on early 1970s Chrysler barges and always liked the "real" power steering and float along suspension. Of course they were terrifying on curves. It wasn't until my 2010 Challenger RT that at least the suspension was soft enough for me but it also had 1970 like body roll on curves. They've changed the suspension so many times in the last few years and when I went from the 2010 to a 2012 STP it was a very noticeable difference. The 2010 would actually go over speed bumps practically without moving the body. When I got a 2013 RT I assumed the 2013 non-STP would be as smooth as the 2010 but they've stiffened up the performance suspension a lot so that there is now some difference between the STP and non-STP but not a major amount as between the 2010 and new STP models. I will say, after having to drive a Toyota Corolla rental for two days, when I got back in the 2012 RT with STP, it felt very smooth compared to that Toyota. All relative.

I do not own plum crazy purple, but in my opinion Dodge's strategy on color choice marketing is idiotic. I don't think a color alone should make a car special. Dodge should offer the best selling color choices all the time and stop doing these small special runs of a specific color. By the time the public finds out a new color is available, Dodge stops offering it. I just don't get it.

I just found this on allpar.com:

Canadians will be able to buy the 2014 Dodge Challenger Sinister Sport or Super Sport, a C$2500 package upgrading the SXT/SXT Plus to four wheel antilock brakes , 3.07:1 rear axle ratio, shifter paddles, body colored rear spoiler, hands-free cell control, performance steering and suspension, and 20 wheels (the difference between the package is painted wheels in Sinister, chrome wheels in Super). Blacktop also continues, built off R/T. Rallye Redline also continues, built off SXT Plus, and similar in most regards to Sinister Sport and Super Sport; R/T Redline upgrades R/T with 20-inch black chrome wheels with red accents, dual stripes and unique grille surround, Mopar shifter, bright pedals, and black or red leather seats.

Changes for 2014 Challenger are better leather on R/T Classic, which also gets SRT-style seats; and various changes to stereos. HID headlamps will be available on SXT, SXT Plus, and Rallye Redline.

My question as well. On one hand removing the 392 option and going with the Hellcat only on the top end Challenger would mean the price point for the top tier car would be north of $60k (there is no way we'll have a 550+hp car at the same price point the 392 is now given the ZL1 and GT500 pricing structure and power).

But on the other hand if they keep the engine line up as it is now and add the Hellcat in MY15, that is FOUR engine options...that seems like a lot.

I'll be very curious to see how this plays out. :fight:

the v8`s IMO should be 400,500,and 600. With a 200lb savings in the weight department which could be easily done.
To all those wanting or waiting on shaker hoods for r/t`s or SRT`s ,just drive it to Petty`s shop and have one installed. On the 6.4 supercharged motor,don`t wait just go order one.

OEM fit and finish of the hood along with the paint quality should exceed that of an aftermarket fiberglass hood and an average body shop's spray booth!

Also, my track record with fiberglass (Cervini, Glasstek, VFN, and Harwood) has been poor (lots of prep work required, stress cracks though the years, overall durability etc...), so I am hopeful the factory solution will be metal, not composite!

OEM fit and finish of the hood along with the paint quality should exceed that of an aftermarket fiberglass hood and an average body shop's spray booth!

Also, my track record with fiberglass (Cervini, Glasstek, VFN, and Harwood) has been poor (lots of prep work required, stress cracks though the years, overall durability etc...), so I am hopeful the factory solution will be metal, not composite!

I am very happy with fit and finish on my Cervini shaker. I bet dodge won't be any better, plus I didn't want to wait, had to have it. :burnout:

Believe it or not I ordered on Thursday of this week. The dealer had plenty of allocation so my car got accepted. Just an FYI., If you want an RT Plus with the 6 speed it's currently not being built. I had to go from a Blacktop to a Classic to get my 6 speed to D status. I had initially ordered a six speed Black Top RT Plus. It was rejected. I'm personally not bothered by this because I am getting the red interior with the upgraded seats which are now standard on the Classic.

Good day new member here
In May I ordered a Hemi Orange Srt than a month later they said Hemi Orange wasn't available, and I had to switch it to Header Orange so We said OK, than Header disappeared from the options at the dealer and I was stuck waiting in limbo again. They told me last week now that they will make my Header orange but it will not be complete till maybe Sept. Unless I switched to a left over Plum at another lot. After much debating with the wife we decided to stick with our Header orange and wait it out. It is a little unfortunate as I am heading back to the middle east in Sept for a 6 month tour and was hoping to have it before I went. Hope my wife is gentle with it lol.

What may make it look odd to you is the contact area at the base of the windshield. The 70's E-Body had almost a foot longer length to the windshield than the current car. Which makes it impossible to have the excess hang area underneath the hood to do what you ask, or want it to look like without creating a smaller dimension similar to what you want.

The same reason holds true to the current model's hood looking chopped off in the rear. Since this isn't the 70s anymore, we should have had a flat hood to look correct.

Could that have been 500 she saw? Have a friend who has/does run that on his last two Challengers as it was a Canadian model, and he has a bunch of spares. On Shaker, you can bet it will not be fiberglass if Dodge adds it to the factory offerings, too many problems with warranties I'd imagine as it/they relate to changing fitments (due to heat and cold, etc) compared to steel/aluminum.

Anybody have any insight as to what colors are going to be available later in the year. According to the earlier post by Resume Speed Plum Crazy is going out after October. I'm just wondering if Hemi Orange might make a reapearance later in the year, since the 2013 run was very short.

I ordered a 2013 Hemi Orange Core in mid May but just found out a couple weeks ago that Chrysler isn't going to build my car. Nobody at Dodge or SRT can exactly tell me why, but that's how it is. So I have to start over again and order a 2014 and I'm trying to decide on what color.

If I order something and then find out a few months later that they are going to do another run of Hemi Orange I just might blow a gasket LOL.

I just ordered a 2014 R/T and the dealer's system said Black Clear Coat while the info in this thread says Pitch Black.

100th Anniversary Appearance Group (AZE) - 01/06/14 - SXT & R/T
High Octane Red Pearl Coat (PRR) - 01/13/14
Shaker Package (AZS) - 07/27/14 - R/T
Sublime Metallic Clear Coat (PFB) - 01/27/14

My question is will the shaker package be available on 2014 models since July 27 is usually after the summer break and will sublime still be available then? Any input RS? Thanks for all your info.

Question for ResumeSpeed or Darrenstoys. Do you know if the 2014 Sublime will be a Challenger only color or do you think we will see a run of Sublime Chargers too?

From all the info I have seen Sublime is for the Challenger only.

Thanks to RS.........my heart is thumping.......it's been a long wait. Now my only(and hopefully last) question is: will Chrysler offer Sublime for the 2015 MY? Maybe that's been discussed over on the 2015 MY thread.

Based on these dates, it doesn't look like you can get sublime and the shaker too bad.

Hopefully the date on the Shaker Package is wrong, that's really late!

Someone probably transposed a seven instead of a one on the Shaker release date. It makes sense that it would be released at the same time as Sublime, but not at the end of July, when MY 14 will be over.

Thanks I appreciate it, but I'm looking for an automatic and thats the problem. There are only a handful of auto cars out there, my dealership tried to do a dealer trade with a few but got turned down. I'm going to make a few more phone calls just to see if I can put anything together, but as of this moment it's looking doubtful that I will be getting a Hemi Orange Core anytime soon.

Too bad you are not on the west coast or in need of a manual. This deal at Huntington Beach Dodge on a new Hemi Orange SRT8 Core is such a steal. $40,990-$5,990 = $35,000 sale price.

I am almost tempted to trade in my 2013 RT for this. But still on the fence....

Has any one seen a picture of a 2014 classic with the ultra-premium seats? Wondering if they are just SRT seats or something different?

From all of the clues it seems less and less likely that there will be a Shaker package available, and more likely it is going to be a "Shaker Edition" numbered car series in Sublime Metallic.

Bummer! :read:

I'm curious about these seats as well. Are they standard for the RT Classic or an option? I'm also anxious to hear more details on the 100th Ann. package. Is it just an appearance package or will there be special performance components as well? Will it be available on all colors or only one specific color? It might change my mind on what to order.

look for a Sublime Challenger R/T with shaker package at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show....all of the limited heritage colors have been unveiled at that show over the years.

But there is one thing in that article that caught my attention and it's this sentence.

"This carhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png (http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php/2013/08/charger-hellcat-and-airflow#) will have a hefty price tag, but should still check in below equivalent Ford and Chevy cars, boasting similar or better performance with a much more livable cabin."

From that I take it that the car will be in the Z28/Mustang Shelby price range but a bit cheaper. So I'd say the $60,000 price range which most likely wont include a dealer markup since for the first model year of the 6.2 Hellcat, only a limited amount of engine's will be produced. I can easily see them going for $70,000 or more with options and dealer markup.

Hello. I am a newbie (first post) so my apologies up front if I am not posting in the right area. I would be interested in knowing any tips/tricks, etc. regarding placing a 2014 custom order with a dealership. For example, how negotiable is the price? Do 2013 incentives apply? Etc. Dumb questions I know, but any help would be appreciated.

I am not finding a 2013 RT Classic in my area that fits the bill, and so would like to order a 2014 to fit my specs.

Thanks in advance.

Can stripe color still be specified? Or is it now only determined by the body color?

The price of a customer order car is as flexible as any car that is sitting on the lot. However, the dealer knows that you are "on the hook" if you are there to order a car and will know that they do not need to give you their best deal. If you can go through USAA or Trucar and get an expected price quote that the dealers internet sales team is almost obligated to meet as a participating dealer you will have the best leverage you can get.

If you have to trade in your current car, try and sell it to carmax or private party so that removes another opportunity for the Dodge dealer to take advantage of you.

2013 rebates only apply to 2013 cars that the dealer has in stock or that get delivered before the rebate offer expires. You will not find a rebate on a 2014 model car at this time of the year.

Generally the default stripe color is matte black.

There are silver, red, gray, white available with certain color combinations.

IIRC, there may be a new R/T Classic stripe color (silver?) coming up for the '14 models. (there's matte black, gloss white and gloss red currently avail. on R/T-C model)

You'll be able to order one in January :).

Yeah sure...I will be waiting for January to order, but I've waited before and had them arbitrarily change their minds. I'm so burned out on the "Sublime Surprise". Yes I'll end up buying one I guess, but they've taken most of the joy out of it. This latest announcement by RS barely registers any arousal. I appreciate the updated info, but dodge needs to send me out a free sample Viagra so I can get all excited AGAIN. Snooze :sleep:
