Aventura CJDR 2018 Dodge Challenger Performance RT Scat Pack Affordable

Not everyone just wants a vehicle to get from point A to point B. Some people want a vehicle for speed and style, and Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has Dodge models with plenty of power and fierce style for under $45,000 — what a deal!

2018 Dodge Challenger R/T

The first R/T vehicle in the Dodge Challenger lineup, “R/T” stands for “Road/Track”. No slash, no “and”, just say it as one would with a hyphen: road-track. Dating back to the 1960s, R/T models were the first of the Dodge Challenger trims to come with upgraded suspension, tires, brakes, and more powerful engines standard. Also, the nice R/T badge that comes standard on Challenger and Charger R/T trims is a great way to let other drivers know what’s up.

Under the hood of the Dodge Challenger R/T is a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine with VVT. That’s “variable valve timing” for non-mechanical folk. Variable valve timing technology alters the timing of a cylinder’s intake and exhaust valves to maximize power. The 5.7L engine is able to generate up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The last recorded acceleration time for the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T from 0-60 mph is 5.1 seconds. Think you can beat it?

The V8 HEMI engine can also come with a Multi-Displacement System (MDS). MDS is another bit of technology used to improve an engine’s fuel efficiency. MDS can turn off half of the cylinders being used when the vehicle is cruising at a steady speed, and by turning the cylinders off, fuel is conserved. For example, when cruising at 60 mph in the Dodge Challenger R/T with a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine with MDS, the MDS will shut down four of the engine’s eight cylinders to improve its fuel efficiency. Without MDS, the 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T gets 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

2018 Dodge Challenger R/T MSRP starting at $33,495 (plus destination fee).

2018 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack

Is the ol’ Road/Track not enough? Looking for more power? Then a Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack, or a Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack is a great option.

The term “Scat Pack” was a Dodge brand marketing play on Frank Sinatra’s “Rat Pack”, and the name was only used for only a select number of Dodge vehicles and pony cars at the time. When first released, there were several Dodge vehicles that owned the name – the Dodge Coronet R/T, the Dodge Charger R/T, and the Dodge Dart GTS.

To be called a Scat Pack vehicle, a Dodge car would have to be able to run a quarter mile in 14 seconds or less. Those that did came with a logo variation of the Dodge Super Bee, released shortly after the aforementioned models. In addition, aside from Scat Pack, this group of vehicles were later referred to as “the hive.”

The Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack is the first trim in the Charger lineup that is powered by an SRT engine. Not just any SRT engine either, the Charger R/T Scat Pack is powered by a 392 cubic-inch V8 HEMI engine with MDS. Able to generate 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, the last recorded track times of the Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack is 4.1 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 mph and 12.3 seconds to complete a quarter-mile. The Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack offers a fuel economy of 15/25 mpg city/highway.

The 2018 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack has a starting MSRP of $39,995 (plus destination fee).
