One look at the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack Widebody and that “Angry Bee” will immediately grab a consumers attention. Consisting of aggressive styling paired with performance, the 392 Scat Pack Widebody has many positive features with minimal downsides.

Along with “392”, which is the cubic-inch equivalent of its 6.4-liter OverHead Valve (OHV) HEMI V8 engine, the Angry Bee is the diecast crest on the Scat Pack fenders. An interesting fact is that the Bee itself is an update of the one that goes back to the Super Bee Dodge Chargers of the early 1970s. For the 2019 model year, the Dodge Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack Widebody combines suspension, brakes, and a number of body enhancements to make the Scat Pack 392 handle and stop as well as it accelerates.

“This started out as a project to just put the Widebody package on the Scat Pack, but then we thought, ‘Why don’t we try to go a bit further,'” explains SRT vehicle dynamics chief Erich Heuschele.

The 6.4-liter engines massive power that produces 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque will provide drivers with the motivation to take on even the fastest of cars on the track. When the 6.4-liter is matched to the optional TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission (a six-speed manual is standard), drivers will have the ability to quickly put power to the rear wheels and intimidate just about anyone who witnesses this beast on the road. The widebody option brings an extra 3.5-inches to its overall width, and 305/357ZR20 Pirelli tires on 11-inch wide wheels offer additional traction, whether drivers are cutting corners or cruising down the highway.

Additionally, six-piston Brembo brakes amp up the 392 Scat Pack widebody stopping power. Once on the track, in comparison to the Challenger Hellcat, the Dodge Challenger R/T 392 Scat Pack Widebody feels significantly different regarding overall weight. In weight distribution, the Scat Pack 392 doesn’t have a massive supercharger or modified intake system up front, so it’s total weight drops about 200 pounds. When the Scat Pack is equipped with the 25” 35-series tires, drivers can still enjoy a smooth driving experience, and when parked, the Scat Pack’s fender flares, hood vents, and smaller spoiler add some impressive curb appeal.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 392 Widebody is unquestionably made for either the street or the dragstrip. The advantages of its interior space, ride quality, cargo room, and visibility make the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 392 Widebody significantly more comfortable, practical, and reasonable for daily use in comparison to its competitors. The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 392 Widebody has a starting MSRP of $47,390 (plus a destination fee) and is expected to be available during the fourth quarter of 2018.
