Dodge is finally bringing back the beloved Challenger T/A. Named for the old Trans-Am racer of the ’70s, the badass V8 is a perfect combination of the old and the new and comes in a trio of different styles: the T/A, T/A Plus and T/A 392. All three of the Challengers boast a similar aesthetic, coupling center-mounted hood scoops with a ram-air design that brings air in through the headlamp to the engine’s intake and Mopar air filter. Other details include LED-illuminated badges, satin black finishes, and a performance exhaust system while drivers can even opt for old-school hood pins if they so choose.

What really differentiates each of the T/As, however, is what’s under the hood. Both the T/A and T/A Plus employ a 5.7-liter V8 capable of 375 horsepower while the 392 ups the ante a bit with 485 horses thanks to a V8 of the 6.4-liter variety. Naturally, six-speed manual transmissions come standard, though eight-speeds automatics are available as well. Finally, Dodge is offering up a Super Track Pack for the Challengers, adding everything from Bilstein shocks, high-performance breaks, and a lowered suspension to a three-mode stability-control system, forged aluminum black Mopar wheels, and either Goodyear Eagle F1 tires or Pirellis. As for the interiors, the T/A Plus replaces the base T/A’s houndstooth-finished seats with heated and ventilated leather buckets and throws in a leather-wrapped power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for good measure. The 392, on the other hand, offers all of that in addition to special decals and a number of other performance upgrades like wider wheels and six-piston Brembo front calipers.

Expect the T/A to turn up soon at Dodge dealers with prices starting at $38,485 USD for the base T/A and going all the way up to $45,090 USD for the 392.
