Introduced in 1968, the Dodge Scat Pack beefed up the brand’s muscle cars with powerful engines, thunderous exhaust notes, and record-breaking quarter-mile times. Dodge revived the Scat Pack in 2015 as an option for its four-door Charger sport sedan and Challenger sports coupe.

Today, the Charger R/T Scat Pack is one of 10 trims available on the Dodge Charger. (The others are SXT, GT, SXT Plus, GT Plus, R/T, Daytona, Daytona 392, SRT 392, and SRT Hellcat.) Available in more than a dozen trims, the Dodge Challenger comes with two Scat Pack options: the R/T Scat Pack and the 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker.

The Scat Pack slots nicely between the already-powerful R/T and the thunderous Hellcat. The whole idea of the Scat Pack is to get maximum horsepower for a low price. Dodge scores on that point. You would have to spend thousands more to get a similar number of ponies from most other brands.
