11.7 Second Bargain: Dodge Introduces 2019 Challenger Scat Pack 1320

It was just a few weeks ago when we found out that Dodge would be introducing some upgrades for the 2019 Challenger lineup, including the addition of a new Hellcat Redeye that’s basically a slightly toned down version of the now discontinued Demon.

It turns out the the Redeye isn’t the only new high performance option that’s joining up the ‘19 Challenger lineup. This week Dodge also announced it will be building the Challenger Scat Pack 1320, which trickles down some of the Demon’s tricks to a much more affordable package.

Like the Demon, the Scat Pack 1320 is aimed at weekend drag racers, but unlike that supercharged monster machine, the 1320 is powered by the same naturally aspirated 485hp 6.4L Hemi V8 found in the rest of the Scat Pack cars.

Despite the lower power number, the car is still said to be capable of a very impressive 11.7-second quarter mile time right out of the box thanks to some tweaks learned during the development of the Demon. For starters, the 1320 includes adaptive dampers with drag mode, a line lock and transbrake, as well as 20-inch drag radial tires. It even gets its own unique take on the Scat Pack logo.

To insure the car holds up during heavy launches and repeated drag racing, it’s also equipped with beefed up 41-spline half shafts. Extra weight is trimmed by removing the passenger seat and rear seat, although both can be optioned back on for $1.

With the required automatic transmission, the Scat Pack 1320 will retail for right around $46,000 when it hits dealerships early next year. Not too bad for a brand new car that will do 115 mph in the quarter and hit 60 in just 3.8 seconds.
