2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody

This week, we’re driving the 2020 Dodge Challenger RT, a Scat Pack 392 Hemi powered version with 485 horses under the hood. Unlike the muscle cars of the 1960s, these modern day muscle cars arrive off the assembly line fitted with traction hungry tires big enough to handle the power, high tech suspensions that result in good handling and the best in braking technology when the slow pedal is depressed.

The original Challengers, meanwhile, roamed only for five years from 1970 to 1974 during the final years of the muscle car phenomenon. Back then, you were either a Ford, GM, AMC or MOPAR fan, the latter “MOPAR” nomenclature standing for “Motor Parts” before evolving into slang for anything produced by Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge. In addition to the big three of Mustang, Camaro and Challenger, other notable pony cars of the past include Pontiac Firebird, Plymouth Barracuda and AMC Javelin/AMX.
