New Dodge Scat Pack Stage Kits to Boost Performance While Preserving Vehicle Warranty; Pricing, Performance Numbers Also Announced

2014 Dodge Charger R/T with Scat Package 3

 

April 3, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Dodge owners who want to upgrade their vehicles with new Scat Pack performance stage kits, first unveiled by Dodge and Mopar last November at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, can do so with confidence that the vehicle warranty will remain unaffected.

 

In an industry-first for such high-level performance modifications offered by an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), the factory warranty will be maintained on 2014 Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicles modified with the Scat Pack 1, Scat Pack 2 and Scat Pack 3 performance stage kits with installation at an authorized dealer.

 

“The Scat Pack factory stage kits can help boost 5.7-liter HEMI® performance up to an additional 58 horsepower and 47 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing Dodge enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “And now with a warranty guarantee, they can do so with the peace of mind that their manufacturer’s warranty remains intact.”

 

“The new Scat Pack kits reinforce our commitment to the performance arena,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “By maintaining the vehicle warranty, we are demonstrating to customers our confidence in the kits, which were built to exactly complement the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger by working hand-in-hand with the engineers who use factory specs to create these vehicles — exclusive knowledge available only to Mopar.”

 

Mopar and Dodge also revealed specifics on pricing and performance benchmarks for the trio of Scat Pack performance stage kit options. The Scat Pack 3 stage kit will provide a boost of nearly 60 horsepower and close to 50 lb.-ft. of torque — numbers currently unmatched by any OEM without the use of a forced-induction system.

 

The Scat Pack 1, 2 and 3 performance stage kits will be available beginning this spring with a starting U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $2,195 for the Stage 1 kit, $1,895 for the Stage 2 kit and $4,995 for the Stage 3 kit. Each Scat Pack kit includes a numbered hard badge associated with its performance stage, so enthusiasts can proudly display the emblem on their vehicle as a badge of honor.

 

The Scat Pack 1 performance stage kit for the 2014 Dodge Challenger and 2014 Dodge Charger achieves a boost of up to 18 horsepower and 18 lb.-ft. of torque through modifications including a Mopar cold-air intake to provide increased air-flow into the engine, Mopar cat-back exhaust to free up downstream airflow, and an all-new performance calibrated engine controller, optimized to the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine.

 

For the 5.7-liter HEMI, Scat Pack 2 adds up to a 30 horsepower bump and is geared towards the performance enthusiast looking for that competitive edge. In addition to a customized, optimized performance calibration feature tailored for Scat Pack 2, a new Mopar performance camshaft works in conjunction with the components of the Scat Pack 1 kit to take advantage of improved engine breathing and deliver an additional acceleration advantage.

 

Scat Pack 3 takes aim squarely at the competitive enthusiast looking for extreme performance and ultimate bragging rights. Huge gains of up to 58 horsepower and 47 lb.-ft. of torque are realized through customized, optimized performance calibration tailored for Scat Pack 3, new Mopar performance CNC-ported cylinder heads and Mopar hi-flow headers.

    Any news on the Dart?

    2.4 turbocharger will be out in 2016. The plant that makes these engines in Dundee Michigan is changing their assembly lines up to produce these turbocharged engines. Instead of getting this Scat Pack, get the turbocharged 2.4 in 2016.

    Not sure if it is worth the money. I was thinking about this for my 2014 Charger R/T Plus, but with dealer installation it is probably going to come close to $11,000 for the Stage 3. Add that to the price of my R/T Plus and that’s the price of the SRT(pretty much) and I would still have less power than the SRT. As you can tell I am a great fan of the company (I own one of your cars and I love it) but I don’t think this price point makes sense. Thanks.

  • Travis Martin

    Is it gonna be available for the 2.0 motor on the dart?

  • Harry

    I agree is it going to be available for the Dart

    I picked up my new Charger last week. There was not one guy there (parts, sales) who could tell me when the scat paks would be available, or how much they would be. Just like when I asked them two months ago. They were all clueless. Pretty pathetic.

      So, because Dodge JUST announced this stuff, it’s “pathetic” that the information hasn’t gotten out to every single sales and service associate? Be realistic and put your ego aside.

      • Richard Stahli

        I agree with PCG. I hate going into a dealership and constantly knowing more about the product than people who are paid to know this stuff. If my paycheck depended on it, I would know every single detail about my product and its competition. If I’m paying 40+ for a car, a little knowledge from the salesperson would be nice. It’s not ego, it’s customer service pure and simple.

      The information about the Scat Packs was originally published on November 6, 2013. I can understand that the sales force might not have been aware, but the parts guy? No need to be testy, Bill.

        Thanks, Richard, my feelings, exactly!
