The 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock is the Best Challenger Yet
Did people really think Dodge was through making iterations of the Challenger SRT Hellcat? They ought to think again, because the Dodge Challenger is back and better than ever with a Super Stock trim. The automaker shocked the world with the reveal of the 2020 Challenger SRT Super Stock, and now we’ve got the all-important pricing information. Order books open this month (August 2020) for the top-tier Dodge Challenger as the first vehicles will roll out of the automaker’s Brampton, Canada, assembly plant this fall. The range-topper is priced from $81,090 — including the destination fee.
Enthusiasts who aren’t up to speed with Dodge’s latest offering can compare the Super Stock to rival the Challenger SRT Demon that debuted in 2018. Back then, the Challenger SRT Demon was limited to only 3,300 units and had a starting price of $84,390. This time around, Dodge placed no production limits on the Challenger SRT Super Stock. The top-tier trim is scheduled to be available throughout the remainder of 2020, and likely continuing in 2021. It may sound redundant to some gearheads, but this car is fast!
Dodge hasn’t revealed its exact weight — and given its hardware it’s safe to assume this Challenger SRT Super Stock isn’t light, but it moves. It can run the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds at a whopping 131 mph, hit a top speed of 168 mph (depending on the tires), and can take off from 0-60 mph in only 3.25 seconds. Just like under the hood of the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Super Stock is not only powered by the same 6.2-liter supercharged HEMi V8, it also borrows the 2.7-liter supercharger as well from other Hellcat trims. Unlike the Challenger Redeye Demon, the Super Stock makes an extra 10 horses, topping out at 807 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque. To get those 10 extra horsepower, Dodge recalibrated the engine and managed to increase the redline 100 revolutions to 6,400 rpm.
While power is great, the Challenger Super Stock’s real value lies in its tire and suspension setup — arguably designed to burn the pavement as efficiently as possible. At the car’s reveal, global head of Dodge and SRT, Tim Kuniskis said “Spinning isn’t winning.” To boost launches, Dodge not only re-tuned the Bilstein dampers, it also gave them three modes: Sport, Street, and Track. When switching from Street to Sport, drivers can expect a firmer ride mostly aimed at providing more feel, but the Track mode does away with overall rebound damping of the front dampers and transfers the weight towards the back, thus creating more grip. The Challenger Super Stock does share the same tire-and-wheel package that’s on the Challenger Redeye Demon, giving it much more sidewall.
