If you don’t want a V6 Challenger and don’t have the budget for an SRT, there’s no reason to feel low as Dodge has just the right Challenger for you. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody might be the perfect choice with its attractive pricing, powerful V8 powertrain unit, and other features that accompany it that just make sense. Compared to the regular R/T Challenger, the Scat Pack gets a larger engine and other changes in braking and exhaust systems that make it more lively and exciting to drive compared to the regular ones.

The 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody is expected to start at $49,500 and will resume competing with the Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback, BMW M2 Competition, and the Chevrolet Camaro 2SS. It generally comes as a single trim level and there are some packages available that could be added to it according to your needs and preferences if we go by its predecessor catalog. It will be a car to watch out for in the near future.

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Features

7.0/10

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody is a single trim level available and its speculated pricing starts from $49,500. It does come with some really impressive features compared to the regular R/T version including a more powerful engine unit, 20-inch aluminum wheels as standard, better brakes, and many more. The only major difference between a Challenger Scat Pack and the Widebody version seems to be the extended wheel arches and some aerodynamic updates that add to the overall stance and aesthetics of this machinery and give it a ferocious look just like you would expect a Challenger to be like. As such a variation has been a part of the 2021 model, we suspect it to be so in the upcoming model as well.

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody, if it retains the same profile and portfolio, is likely to have those Driver and passenger heated cushion seats and Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning for one’s easy sitting and comfort during a long hauling. The 6 Alpine Speakers along with Apple CarPlay and SiriusXM Satellite Radio can also be spotted to have their presence for involvement within the cabin itself. As far as safety is concerned, the Roll Stability Control, Electronic Stability Control, Driveline Traction Control, and Emergency Sos are some of the value-assets that are worth reintroducing again and again which is why the newer model is also assumed to hold them most probably. Therefore, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack WideBody seems to be a class-apart in many standout aspects.

Which trim should you buy?

Well, the Challenger Scat Pack Widebody is a lone warrior and there aren’t any other options to choose from. However, there are some packages named Alcantara Appearance Package, Shaker Package and so on that add some exclusive features to the Challenger Scat Pack as per your preferences which can be availed of to enrich the feel and ambiance at an extra investment. It is, without a doubt, value for money among its other siblings in the lineup. 

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Release date

Dodge has not confirmed any dates or deadlines yet regarding its pre-booking and launch, it is reasonable to be a bit more patient. But one can bet that it will be available by the end of 2021. 

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Engine and Performance

7.0/10

The 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody’s biggest highlight might be something that lies under its hood. The renowned 6.4 L naturally aspirated 392 Hemi V8 is a marvel of an engine with its blistering 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft. of torque output and this epic is anticipated to be in continuation in the upcoming model. The engine feels punchy, and fun and seems to have a persona of its own. It revs up freely and linearly with the power following the revs. The 392 Hemi V8 is an absolute blast to drive on the highways and have the occasional drag race with your mates as it can do these things all day long.

The V8 comes mated to a 6-speed manual as standard. There’s also an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission unit available as an option with paddle shifters but we would vouch for the 6-speed manual transmission as it elevates the whole experience and ride-feel along with giving you the freedom to choose your gears. Except for the GT, all Challengers are available only as RWD cars, and the Scat Pack is no different.

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody with its V8 variant will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and will do a quarter-mile in 12.6 seconds with a top speed of 185 mph.

Compared to its rivals like the Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback and the Chevrolet Camaro 2SS, the Challenger Scat Pack is equally quick from 0 to 60 mph and in the quarter-mile drag. But then, the only problem here is the fact that the Dodge costs almost $50,000 while its counterparts are priced much lower which makes them more appealing. It looks more of a general trend with the BMW M2 Competition as well since it is also a worthy exhilaration yet a blow to one’s finances by a widened gap of nearly 20 grand. Considering the segment purpose, an RWD is the best-suited and has been kept constant throughout the rivals. 

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Fuel Economy

5.0/10

The fuel economy does seem to be a bit of a concern when it comes to the 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody as there is a slight chance that there will be any stark difference in the mileage as that of its predecessor. It will have the lowest fuel economy in its segment although it doesn’t come as a surprise as it has a 6.4 L naturally aspirated 392 Hemi V8 powering its wheels.

It offers a combined fuel economy of 17 miles per gallon and returns 14 and 23 MPG figures in the city and highway driving conditions respectively. It does get an 18.5-gallon fuel tank which helps it achieve a combined range of 314.5 miles with a maximum range of 425.5 miles on the highway. Since these figures are that of the 2021 model, they will remain so in the newer model as well it seems as of now.

The Chevy Camaro 2SS seems to be a better option among all if having a good fuel economy is one of your primary requirements as it averages 19 MPG and has a sizable tank at its disposal. But there seems to be no point in gauging a muscle car for its fuel economy if you were to buy one. The range coverage is a much more potent criterion to measure where the Dodge model is fairly a decent deal while the Chevy takes lead even there with a margin of up to 31 miles. Though the BMW M2 Competition is the most efficient option, its storage capacity of 13.7-gallons causes a hindrance in the range that it manages. 

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Interior

8.0/10

Overall, what is assumed is that there aren’t any updates to the interior design and features of the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody compared to its previous model year version. The interior design is a simple layout inside which seems very familiar since they haven’t been changed for a good number of years. The dashboard gets a soft surface finish with the center console which involves the infotainment screen and HVAC vents facing the driver in order to convey that the Challenger’s a driver-focused car. The manual shift lever does look intriguing with its short length and spherical knob. The steering wheel gets leather upholstery and also a heating function.

The 10-way power-adjustable front seats are arguably some of the best sets of seats that are available in the segment today with the right balance of comfort, quality, and sportiness. The 4-way power lumbar support improves your confidence impressively as you drive the Challenger in a sporty fashion by holding you tight and comfortably. The front seats also get the Scat Pack logo along with other R/T-specific accents across the interior. The dual-zone automatic climate control unit works like a charm and extensions like illuminated cup holders and glove box add to the practicality and aesthetics of the interior.

The rear seats might not be as spacious as what you would find in the Charger, but the second row of the Challenger seems to have more space than any other car in the segment. The seats won’t be able to accommodate passengers for long trips but can surely be kid-oriented. The trunk capacity is impressive as the Challenger gets the largest trunk capacity in the segment at 16.2 cubic feet of volume along with power cargo access which makes the boot easily accessible and convenient.

The Challenger has a impressive cabin with loads of room compared to all of its rivals and the trunk capacity too is a remarkable one. One is also entitled to have nice visibility despite that wide bonnet in the front with easy ingress and egress irrespective of the rows. The capacity to seat 5 passengers is also an added advantage while the rest have to settle with a count of 4 at the max. Thus keeping practicality as the barometer, the Challenger has high scopes and a better approach than its contemporaries.

Some of the standout interior features are:

  • Dual-Zone automatic climate control unit 
  • 10-way power-adjustable front seats 
  • Heated sports steering wheel with leather upholstery
  • Dual-tone leather upholstery
  • Scat Pack Logo Houndstooth seat
  • Illuminated cup holders and glove box

What’s there to keep you entertained?

The infotainment system onboard the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody gets the latest UConnect 4C infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display unit. The audio system available is a 276w audio system with 6 Alpine speakers and regular amplifiers. You can also opt for a Harman/Kardon package that offers you a more exciting Harman/Kardon surround sound system. Other multimedia features include in-built navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, two USB ports, and so on. Connectivity features include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and 4G Internet access WiFi hotspot as standard. These assets are simply so enticing that it will be no surprise to see them functioning in the newer 2022 format as it is predicted.

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Exterior

7.0/10

As far as looks go, Dodge Challengers have always been impressively gorgeous looking cars, since the inception of the lineup and after nearly 5 decades of the Challenger’s birth, the modern ones still carry the design DNA which has been of great importance when it comes to Dodge’s heritage and journey so far.

The Challenger has always been a flagship model from Dodge and the latest R/T Scat Pack Widebody underpins the statement. The extended wheel arches, aerodynamic upgrades, the hood scoop, and other features are the primary design touches that attract the majority of potential customers towards it. And combine that with the handsome set of lights in the front and back, the Challenger can be recognized from miles away. The Scat Pack version not only gets extended wheel arches and some tweaks to the front fascia, but it also receives 20-inch Devil’s Rim aluminum wheels, adaptive damping suspension, Brembo brakes, and other additions that intensify the appeal altogether.

Although it is tough to gauge the looks of muscle cars and come up with a winner for the best-looking one, the Challenger has a cult following of enthusiasts for its devilish glance and stance which really makes it one of the top picks for potential customers. It also has a longer wheelbase and track width that helps provide extra space inside and makes the ride more stable at high speeds. Rivals like that of the Ford and Chevy tend to be on the lighter bank of the river which supremes their handling and torque vectoring thus, proving a parallel dynamic pursuit as that of the former if not better.

Some of the key exterior features are:

  • 20-inch Devil’ Rim aluminum wheels 
  • Auto on/off halogen projector headlamps 
  • LED tail lamps
  • Exclusively extended wheel arches and aerodynamic upgrades
  • Scat Pack logo on the sides

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Safety

6.0/10

Although there isn't any data available for the 2022 model year version of the Challenger regarding safety ratings, the 2021 version, on which it is suspected to be completely based, has scored an overall mark of 5 stars as per NHTSA records and similar ratings from other agencies like the IIHS. Thus it bolsters the argument in favor of its structural resilience and insulation. Along with the usual standard safety features, the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody gets add-ons such as an Aerial view camera system, Low Tire Pressure Warning, ParkSense rear parking sensors, and ParkView backup camera. Moreover, the Emergency Sos and Roll Stability Control are other advanced tech-ends that bring other complex algorithms into function. 

Some of the notable safety features include:

  • Low Tire Pressure Warning 
  • Side Impact beams
  • ParkSense rear parking sensors 
  • ParkView backup camera 
  • Blind-spot warning
  • Aerial view camera system

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Competition

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody vs. 2021 Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback

The Ford Mustang GT Premium Fastback might be a cheaper option compared to the Challenger and might handle better on the twisties, but the Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody has a character of its own which makes it too hard to not fall for it. Its stance, feel, and driving experience all scream the word ‘muscle car’, and that exactly is the way you want your muscle car to feel. Also, it gets a 392 Hemi which is an icon on its own. The range and inside spaciousness are also in the motion of the latter. 

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody vs. 2021 BMW M2 Competition

Though they represent the same aggression and history, there is a slight variance between the two that gives Challenger an edge. Marginal yet roomier cabin and better range coverage are the realms where it takes those strides and becomes a better option with a relatively cheaper expensive price. The BMW M2 does manage to offer you a mix of opulence and sportiness inside the cabin but it is those numbers where it has to struggle to make a case for itself.

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody vs. 2022 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS

The Camaro 2SS is a cheaper, agile, and smaller alternative to the Challenger. It doesn’t have the interior space or the cargo capacity as that of the Dodge logo but does offer best-in-class fuel economy and range which is quite impressive for a muscle car. But the Challenger Scat Pack Widebody’s looks, practicality, and the experience that the 392 Hemi V8 bestows on you are well worth the extra money you spend on it.

2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody Coupe Final Verdict

The 2022 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody is a great car for people who can’t afford an SRT but do need a devilish, handsome, and fun Challenger for the road. The Challenger does come with some cons in terms of handling and fuel economy but its interior and cargo space along with the 392 Hemi V8 are all enough to spend your money on it. The Widebody is a great looker and does attract a lot of attention on the roads and parking lots and that summed up with the great powertrain unit and driving experience might be the motivation for you to buy one.
