February 26, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker models with their functional throwback “Shaker” hoods are in hot demand as they start making their way to Dodge dealers across the country.
After it was initially introduced at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas in November, Dodge dealers ordered the entire production run for the 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker in just four days. Dodge received 2,000 dealer orders from January 7 through January 10 after orders were opened.
“Based on this strong initial demand, it’s clear that our customers are excited about the return of the legendary Shaker model, which was engineered for enthusiasts who asked for even more attitude and a dose of muscle car heritage,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of the Dodge Brand. “The 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine with the unique hood and intake design makes this performance car an instant classic – much like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood.”
The new 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shakers are shipping out of the Brampton (Ont.) Assembly Plant and starting to arrive at Dodge dealerships now. Pricing for this very well-equipped model starts at just $36,995 U.S. MSRP ($37,495 with the custom one-of-a-kind hood-to-tail stripes), representing a walk of only $2,500 from the Challenger R/T Classic for all of the unique features of this limited production model.
