Mopar revved things up at FCA’s annual “What’s New” event Friday, June 26 at the Chelsea Proving Grounds, Chelsea, Mich., as it unveiled the next-generation Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak.
This factory-prepped vehicle is specifically geared for drag racing and offers the option of either Mopar’s first ever supercharged 354 cubic inch Gen III HEMI engine or a naturally aspirated 426 cubic inch Gen III HEMI engine.
The new Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is designed for passionate, Mopar-or-No-Car Sportsman racers who compete in nationally sanctioned drag racing series, such as the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). The new generation Drag Pak includes plenty of upgrades and improvements from the previous generation Drag Pak and unique nods to Mopar heritage in the design.
Now, for a look under the hood:
The new Drag Pak features an upgraded, race-prepped automatic transmission for both the 354 and 426 engine options. The vehicle’s front suspension sports a unique Mopar K-Member and suspension geometry, with double adjustable compression and rebound struts. The four-link rear suspension has a Panhard bar, Strange Engineering 4-inch solid axle with 9-inch aluminum third member, 40 spline gun drilled axles, shocks with adjustable compression and rebound and an anti-roll bar. The rear axle mounting has been strengthened from the previous generation Drag Pak to give racers the harder, faster launch that they need.
Along with its Mopar performance standards, the Drag Pak will look great as it speeds down the drag strip.
The Drag Pak also includes all the bells and whistles that drag racers love.
Orders open through authorized Dodge dealerships for the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak on July 23, 2015, just as the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals kickoff with the Mopar Block Party in downtown Golden, Colo.
