Slotting between the Challenger R/T and Challenger SRT 392, the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack is a new model for 2015. While the price difference nearly splits the difference between the standard R/T and SRT 392, we want to know whether you think the R/T Scat Pack is a better value than the non- Hellcat SRT.

Both cars are powered by the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is standard, while an eight-speed auto is available on both models. The Challenger R/T Scat Pack features four-piston Brembo brake calipers, while the Challenger SRT 392 gets six-piston Brembo brake calipers. Where the SRT 392 gets an adaptive suspension, the R/T Scat Pack gets a Bilstein sport suspension.

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack also features cloth seats in place of the Challenger SRT 392 trim’s heated/vented and leather/Alcantara seating. SRT 392 models also feature a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel and an 18-speaker premium audio system. While both cars ride on 20-inch alloy wheels, the SRT 392 gets wider 275/40R20 tires to the R/T Scat Pack model’s 245/45R20 tires. The R/T Scat Pack also features projector headlights in place of the SRT 392 model’s HID headlights. Each trim has unique exterior styling, while the SRT 392 gets a functional hood scoop.

The Challenger R/T Scat Pack is priced starting at $39,490, or $7500 less than the $46,990 Challenger SRT 392. Despite the significant price savings, the R/T Scat Pack gets the same power as the more expensive SRT 392 model, though it gives up some of the handling and braking equipment as well as some creature comforts. A base Challenger R/T with the 375-hp, 410-lb-ft 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 is priced from $32,490.
