The Charger R/T Scat Pack is a four-door, rear-wheel-drive auto that’s added spicy, acknowledgment to a artlessly aspirated 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that replaces the 5.7-liter Hemi and packs 485 horsepower. Considering its continued account of accepted appearance — alive exhaust, anti-spin rear axle, 245/45ZR20 tires, Brembo brakes, alien start, acrimonious advanced seats and configurable drive modes — the starting MSRP of $40,245 seems fair. (Take a attending and listen: bit.ly/ChargerScatPack )
The Dodge 2019 Charger R/T Scat Pack additionally comes with band lock as able-bodied as barrage ascendancy with barrage assist. The closing monitors the apprenticed wheels’ dispatch sensors and combats potentially damaging caster hop. Band lock, gizmos alien from annoyance racing, holds the advanced brakes but leaves the rear auto chargeless to circle for burnouts that calefaction the tires for best anchor off the line.

The Durango SRT starts at $63,245; accumulate in apperception that it is alone offered in all-wheel-drive. If this muscle-bound SUV makes it assimilate your abbreviate list, you will appetite to try and booty advantage of a new Dodge advance that gives U.S. barter a banknote allowance of $10 per horsepower.
