AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Capitalizing on hot sales of its 2014 Dodge Challenger and Charger models, Chrysler announced on Thursday that it is bringing back Scat Pack performance stage kits from Mopar.

The new Scat Packs will be available from authorized dealers this spring.

The latest Scat Packs, first teased at the 2013 SEMA Show, allow owners to upgrade their Dodge vehicles to three levels of performance, while keeping them 50-state legal and retaining the factory warranty.

Scat Pack 1, with prices starting at $2,195, provides an increase of 18 horsepower and 18 pound-feet of torque via such modifications as a cold-air intake, cat-back exhaust system and performance-calibrated engine controller, optimized to the 5.7-liter Hemi engine.

Scat Pack 2, which works in conjunction with the first package, starts at $1,895. It adds up to 30 hp to the Hemi with a hot camshaft and special performance engine calibration.

Scat Pack 3, starting at $4,995, "takes aim squarely at the competitive enthusiast looking for extreme performance and ultimate bragging rights." It offers gains of up to 58 hp and 47 lb-ft of torque by adding CNC-ported cylinder heads and Mopar hi-flow headers, as well as further modified engine calibration.

All Scat Packs include special badges, so the world at large knows the owner is serious about performance.

"The new Scat Pack kits reinforce our commitment to the performance arena," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, in a statement. "By maintaining the vehicle warranty, we are demonstrating to customers our confidence in the kits, which were built to exactly complement the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger by working hand-in-hand with the engineers who use factory specs to create these vehicles — exclusive knowledge available only to Mopar."

First introduced in 1968, the Scat Pack treatment added a bit of extra zing to such iconic models as the Dodge Charger R/T, Dodge Coronet R/T, Dodge Dart GTS and Super Bee in the late '60s and early '70s.

Traveling the auto-show circuit for several years, the specially equipped vehicles created such a buzz that Dodge formed the Scat Pack Club, which for $3 per year provided members with newsletters and catalogs of Mopar performance parts, as well as such trinkets as membership cards, jacket patches and bumper stickers.

Edmunds says: Dodge Challenger and Charger owners with a go-fast inclination are sure to scoop up these Mopar kits.
