  The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 Is for Living Life a Quarter-Mile at a Time With drag-strip gear borrowed from the Demon, the more affordable 1320 is a straight-line thrill.If you’ve made it this far you probably know, but just in case, the 1320 Drag package is named for the length of a quarter-mile in feet. Like the limited-edition Demon, this is a Challenger set up for the drag strip. But the Demon has been discontinued for 2019, so the 1320 is now the factory-prepped dragster in the Challenger lineup, which is why Dodge let us rip on the 1320 at the drag strip at the Auto Club Speedway in Pomona, California.

In a market where the majority of sales are of pickups, SUVs, and crossovers, the Dodge Challenger has made a resurgence, and for a car, that's pretty awesome. Dodge is coming off its best year ever for Challenger sales, with 66,716 sold in 2018, and record-setting third-quarter sales in 2019. So there's more than one reason for the brand to celebrate with a 50th Anniversary Edition of the Challenger in 2020.

Dodge will offer the 50th Anniversary Edition package on GT RWD, R/T Shaker, R/T Scat Pack, and R/T Scat Pack Widebody Challenger models. The Shaker hood will thus be available on the R/T Scat Pack Widebody model, and it will also be the first Shaker scoop to come in body color, a nice juxtaposition with the satin black hood that also comes with the new edition; the Shaker hood can only be had on V-8 models.

For this edition, it's all about the small details, Dodge will include "50" logos on the seats, dashboard, floor mats, rear spoiler, and even illuminated on the inside of the headlight housing. If that's not enough to remind you that you’re sitting on 50 years of thoroughbred muscle car, fear not, the interior will also feature a unique yellow-themed gauge cluster and sepia stitching on the dashboard, seats, and steering wheel, as well as real carbon-fiber accenting. Even Hellcat models will receive a "50" logo.

As a nod to 1970—the original year of production for the first Challenger—Dodge will produce 70 cars in each trim and color combination, and each one will have a dashboard placard with the car's number out of 70. A new addition to Dodge's extensive portfolio of in-your-face colors (known as high-impact paint internally) is being introduced. In line with Dodge's celebration of the golden era with this edition, it's aptly named Gold Rush.

The package will start at $4995 for the GT RWD, $5495 for the R/T Shaker, and $5995 for the 392-powered Scat Pack variants. Dodge dealers will start taking orders in December, and the cars arrive at dealers in "early spring" 2020. It seems that FCA's penchant for stoking the eternal flame of nostalgia has yet to die off, and we're thankful; a world without rumbling V-8s isn't something we're quite ready to accept.

Watch Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Drag Race Rented Acura NSX .
The NSX doesn't lose all of these races against the Demon. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon carries forward the classic muscle car recipe of putting a massive engine in a mid-sized coupe, and it uses the prodigious power to accelerate through the quarter mile quicker than just about anything on the road. Conversely, the Acura NSX typifies the modern method of creating a supercar by combining a twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors, in addition to lots of electronics to make the complicated setup work.
