Dodge’s Scat Packs are back

Dodge announced this week at the 2013 SEMA show plans to jazz-up a core piece of their MOPAR heritage with the reintroduction of their legendary Scat Pack packages.  In honor of the 45th anniversary of the “Scat Pack” Dodge enthusiast club, which led Dodge to first develop the performance kits, MOPAR faithful will once again be able to order up the factory-installed hotrod kits for the 2014 Challenger, Charger and Dart.  


“The Scat Pack performance philosophy has always been the core of Dodge DNA,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge Brand. “Bringing back factory stage kits allows Dodge enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles.”

No doubt, the days of figuring out how to wrench more power out of a modern engine by swearing at it over beers with a few friends are long gone.  Dodge’s Scat Packs come in three stages for those who would rather leave the educated grunt work to the pros at MOPAR.  For the 2014 Challenger and Charger, both equipped with an already potent 5.7-liter Hemi V8, the goodies are as follows:

SCAT PACKAGE 1 5.7-liter

  • “Optimized” engine calibration – tailored to Scat Package 1
  • Mopar cold air intake
  • Mopar cat-back exhaust
  • Scat Package 1 badge

SCAT PACKAGE 2 5.7-liter

Adds:

  • “Optimized” engine calibration – tailored to Scat Package 2
  • Mopar performance camshaft
  • Scat Package 2 badge

SCAT PACKAGE 3 5.7-liter

Adds:

  • “Optimized” engine calibration – tailored to Scat Package 3
  • Mopar performance ported and polished heads
  • Mopar hi-flow performance headers
  • Scat Package 3 badge

The 2014 Dart GT, which makes its power with a relatively petit 2.4-liter four-cylinder, Tigershark engine will have its own trio of Scat offerings:

SCAT PACKAGE 1 2.4-liter

  • Mopar cold-air intake
  • Mopar short-throw shifter
  • Mopar performance brakes, including slotted rotors and performance brake pads

SCAT PACKAGE 2  2.4-liter

  • “Optimized” engine calibration (premium octane)
  • Mopar cat-back exhaust

SCAT PACKAGE 3 2.4-liter

  • Mopar big brake kit with stainless lines
  • Performance suspension with adjustable springs and struts
  • Upgraded performance front and rear sway bars

Dodge plans on rolling out the hotrod Scat Packs next Spring.  For a full examination of all the scat-worthy details check out the full press release here.
