For the many people who love the style of the 1971 concept car, the all-new Shakedown Package is a great way to get that custom look straight from the factory. At the 2016 SEMA Show, Dodge brought a custom 1971 Dodge Challenger called the Shakedown. It melded together modern Challenger parts with the classic model’s body. It featured a shaker hood scoop and a unique set of stripes on one side that many adored.

So they’ve brought back this popular style and released it as the Shakedown Package for 2018 Challengers that have a hood scoop. Just like on the concept car from 2016, the package gives the car the stripes to one side that wrap around the hood scoop. In addition to the stripes, the package includes white-face gauges and an upgraded Alpine audio system. The package has an MSRP of $995.

“Dodge//SRT has a rich history of using iconic heritage and high-impact colors and unique graphics to make our vehicles look custom, straight from the factory,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Passenger Car Brands at Dodge.
