The Dodge Charger Scat Pack is among the most powerful and most menacing cars Dodge produces, and that means that it comes with the legendary Hemi V8 which we all die for. Although it has a few more powerful siblings in the form of Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye, the Scat Pack Charger in itself is quite a big car with a lot of road presence, and if someone is just too distracted to notice your long car, the V8 rumble is enough to catch everyone’s attention.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

For 2022 though, Dodge has decided to leave the Charger Scat Pack pretty much untouched as it is almost perfect in its present guise. As standard, the HEMI V8 under the hood of the Charger Scat Pack manages to put out 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack rivals the likes of 2022 BMW M340i, 2022 Chrysler 300 S V8, and 2022 Kia Stinger GT1. Continue with the article to know how it performs in front of the rivals in the segment.

Features

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack is a separate trim in itself. The 2022 Charger Scat Pack is expected to retail around $42,930, which makes it an absolute bargain for what it offers. For the price you get, Laguna leather perforated seats, Heated and ventilated front seats, Dual-Zone Automatic climate control, 19-speaker Harman Kardon Audio System, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and PARKSENSE rear Park Assist system. It is honestly a lot of car for a lot less money.

Which Trim should you buy?

There is only one trim to choose from, and that is the Charger Scat Pack, prices for which will start from just under $43,000. It is one fully loaded trim and comes with all the creature comfort one can ask for. Features like Uconnect 4C NAV, Lane Departure Warning, LED racetrack tail lamps, and more make the Scat Pack a value for money offering.

Release Date

Based on previous year’s trend, we are expecting the sedan to reach the dealerships before the end of 2021.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

Under the hood of the 2022 Charger Scat Pack is Dodge’s legendary 6.4L Hemi V8 engine, which is famous worldwide for the insane amounts of power it has on tap. This is paired to a rather conventional 8-speed torque convertor gearbox which we are used to seeing in many other cars from FCA. The Scat Pack only comes in a rear-wheel-drive configuration, which makes it even scarier yet fun to drive. This car eats tires for breakfast as even the slightest of throttle inputs result in burnout. 

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Sedan Can Hit 0-60 Mph In Just 3.8s

If you are good with throttle inputs and have your tires warmed up, then you can clock a zero to 60 mph in nearly 3.8 secs, which is insanely quick if you ask us. This is a true gem of a motor, and if we have to say one thing that can be improved a bit, that would be the gearbox. It is a good gearbox if you are pushing the car, but it does get confused over sudden downshifts, and that makes you lose some crucial seconds if you are in a race.

Expected

When it comes to ride quality, the 2022 Charger has a composed ride when driven responsibly. Its large 20-inch wheels remain relaxed on most surfaces, but obstacles such as railroad crossings and potholes disrupt its composure. The large sedan was remarkably balanced when cornering with little to no body rolls. It is considerably heavier than the competition, and that makes it slightly twitchy to handle. 

Well, honestly, there are very few cars that can compete against the 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack head-on as it is truly one of a kind machine. The closest competitor maybe is the Chrysler 300 S, and it packs in a smaller 5.7L V8 which is not as powerful as the Hemi V8. On the other hand, the rivals from Germany and Korea seem to be overpriced and underpowered when compared to the Charger Scat Pack.

Fuel Economy
7.5/10

Apart from being a beast in power output, the Hemi V8s are also famous for being very thirsty. They drink fuel like monsters, and that is not a very good thing considering how scarce and expensive that precious juice is. Talking about numbers, the Charger Scat Pack is rated by EPA at 15 mpg for the cities, 24 mpg for the highways, and 18 mpg for combined driving cycles, respectively. A fuel talk of 18.5-gallon capacity means that the driving range is a mere 444 miles on highways, which is a decent figure in the competition.

The most fuel-efficient car here is the BMW, which is not at all slow but is just better at making optimum use of power. Also despite having a smaller fuel tank than others, it still manages to have the most driving range, thanks to its exceptional fuel economy rating. The Dodge Charger is the least efficient of the lot as it sports a larger engine and is a gas guzzler, to be honest.

Interior
8.0/10

Dodge has done quite a good job in designing the interior of the Charger Scat Pack, and with that all-black look, it certainly looks quite menacing as well. The whole dashboard is wrapped in soft-touch materials, and it’s hard to find hard plastics. What we personally liked the most is how simple the whole dashboard layout is. Most modern-day cars get unnecessary cuts and creases, and that really doesn't do good to our OCD. Luckily, things are not like that here. The center of the dash is dominated by a massive 8.4-inch touch display, which we will talk about later. Below are the controls for AC, climate control, and other nitty-gritty.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Sedan Front Row Seats

As standard, the seats are cloth performance seats, but they can be upgraded to either Nappa leather or Alcantara seats, both of which are pretty comfortable. The steering wheel is very nice and chunky, unlike some which are thin as a stick. It is also wrapped in leather and has controls for multimedia and cruise control as one would expect and also gets heating functionality. Overall the Charger Scat Pack is a driver-focused car, and it is quite obvious by the way how everything is aligned towards the driver. The sedan comes with a cargo capacity of 16.5 cubic feet, which is not the best figure in the competition.

The interior cabin is the most spacious in the Chrysler, although just by a few tenths of an inch. That extra space Chrysler has traded for the boot volume as it has a slightly smaller boot than the Dodge Charger. BMW is the smallest and least spacious car here, and that makes it lose here hands down. The Kia Stinger GT1 offers a more balanced space and has the highest cargo capacity at 23.3 cu ft. Standout interior features include:

  • 12-way power driver aggressive sport seat 
  • Heated front seats
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Heated leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Laguna leather perforated seats
  • Nappa leather or Alcantara seats (Optional)

What’s there to keep you entertained?

Flaunting its position at the center of the dashboard is an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system which can also be had with inbuilt navigation. This display comes with FCA’s Uconnect 4C software, which has a pretty easy-to-use UI with decently good graphics. The best bit is if you’re not a fan of touchscreens, you’ve got buttons below as well for climate control and few multimedia settings, and additionally you get voice control as well.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Sedan Infotainment System

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity. As standard, it comes paired to a six-speaker audio system, which can be upgraded to a 19 speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system for a price of $1,795. Apart from these impressive features, the sedan also has all the basics one needs from a car of this stature. Standout infotainment features include: 

  • Uconnect 4C w/8.4-inch touchscreen display 
  • Six-speaker stereo
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility
  • 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system
  • SiriusXM Guardian
Exterior
8.0/10

The 2022 Dodge Charger in itself is a pretty smart-looking car, and with the Scat Pack clothes, it looks extremely menacing and hot. The Scat Pack further enhances the hunches and shoulder line of the car. The optional Gold Rush exterior paint with satin black painted roof, bonnet, and spoiler make the car look like a proper beast. There is a hood scoop, and it is not just for showoff as it actually helps in cooling the engine down.

The Mopar air intake in the front grille looks like a nostril and gives the car a very characteristic look which is quite common in Dodge cars. It comes with 20-inch rims as standard, and if you are willing to spend an extra grand, then you can get yourself brass monkey rims which further enhance the look of the car a thousand-fold. The sedan has a wheelbase of 120 inches, which is pretty close to 120.2 inches of Chrysler, thus they both manage to offer better seating space to the passengers inside.

Dimensionally, the 2022 Charger Scat Pack is the heaviest car here, tipping the scale at just under 4,400 pounds. Talking about the dimensions, it is quite a lot similar to that of Chrysler 300S as both of the cars are essentially the same under the skin. The smallest car in this bunch here is the BMW, which is quite compact if compared with others in pretty much all the dimensions. When comparing the ground clearance, the BMW M340i offers the most at 5.4 inches. Standout exterior features include:

  • 20-in. black noise wheels
  • Cold air intake system by Mopar
  • Performance hood with heat extractors
  • Limited-slip differential
  • High-performance Brembo brakes
  • High-performance suspension
  • Black grille
  • Active exhaust
Safety
7.5/10

The 2021 base Charger earned an overall five-star crash-test rating from the NHTSA, but it wasn't named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, primarily because the car wasn’t able to perform well in the highly notorious and very difficult small overlap front driver-side test. Also, the headlights are rated poorly by the agency. However, the 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack does offer a host of driver-assistance technology, including adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking. But these features cost extra, and base models are excluded from the most advanced options. Standout safety features include: 

  • Electronic stability control 
  • Driveline traction control 
  • Hill-start assist 
  • Forward collision warning system
  • Adaptive cruise control 
  • Parking sensors 
  • Low tire pressure warning system 
Competition
8.0/10

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack vs 2022 BMW M340i

The BMW M340i is a pretty fast car. Also, it is quite a lot more luxurious than the Charger. The M340i is considered one of the best driver’s cars in its price range, and that pretty much justifies itself. But when the Charger Scat Pack comes in the picture, you just simply can’t ignore the value this big Dodge brings to the table.

2022 BMW M340i

We know that this is not as fuel-efficient as the BMW and also the Dodge is not having a very premium cabin if we compare it to the BMW, but still, the sound of that V8 rumbling makes us forget everything. Also, the fact that it comes for nearly 10 grand cheaper than the BMW makes us decide that the Dodge is the sedan here that gets our money.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack vs 2022 Chrysler 300 S V8

The Chrysler 300 S belongs to the same family as the Dodge, and that makes it a cousin of the Charger Scat Pack. While the Charger comes with a 6.4L Hemi V8, the 300S makes its living with a smaller 5.7L V8, which is honestly not on the level of the HEMI V8 of the Charger.

2022 Chrysler 300 S V8

Further, the Chrysler also doesn’t look as good as the Charger Scat pack, which makes it lose yet again in front of the Dodge. The Dodge is also a bigger car, giving it more road presence, and of course, a much better car to drive or be in.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack vs 2022 Kia Stinger GT1

The Kia Stinger GT1 is maybe the best driver’s car that we have seen coming from Korea as it has a very punchy motor, is superior in terms of handling, and is quite a lot comfortable to be in as well.

2022 Kia Stinger GT1

What else, the car is coming for a relative bargain when compared to the Germans and has a build quality that can give any luxury car brand a run for their money. But the big question is if it is better than the Charger or not? And honestly, for us, the answer is no. The Stinger is no doubt an excellent car, but can it separate us from that V8 motor, no it can’t.

Final Verdict

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack is a true blue enthusiast car. It is fast and ferocious, and with that rear-wheel-drive layout, it is even fun and scary to drive. The interior is quite luxurious for its price and has quite a lot of space and practicality. The only major concern is that the 6.4L HEMI V8 engine is not a very fuel-efficient one, and that is the only place where the Charger loses some points, but this is a trade-off you have to make for additional power in any case. In all other ways, the 2022 Charger Scat Pack is a perfect car and something that will always put a smile on your face whenever you push that race pedal.
