The Dodge Challenger Shaker Stomps All Over Your Sports-Car Niceties

I just spent a week with a Dodge Challenger, and it helped me recalibrate some internal stuff. It reminded me that, as much as we here at the magazine and website love cars, sometimes we get caught up in the fussy stuff. The dickering over the weight balance and the merits of aero packages with carbon-fiber splitters, single-scroll turbos versus, well, whatever.

The Challenger I borrowed was the 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker, which is rather a fussy name come to think of it. But what it delivers is delightfully unfussy: the kind of visceral delights which got us into cars in the first place.

The Challenger is rebelling even when it’s just sitting there. Oversized and attitudinal and not even a little bit grown up. When Dodge first brought it back, they didn’t try to find a balance between the old and the modern. They just went ahead and ripped off all the good stuff from the old. And since most things modern on the roads look boring as hell, the Challenger is a win. It is a bad 1970s detective TV show, walrus mustaches and all, writ into metal.
