The 2020 Challenger Super Stock will be among the lowest-production Mopar muscle cars yet

The 2020 Dodge Challenger Super Stock will be produced in far fewer numbers than the limited-production Demon that spawned it, according to Motor Trend. Dodge only built 3300 copies of the drag-strip-focused Demon, yet the 2020 Super Stock, which wasn’t at all limited in production, only saw 200 or so built before the factory began transitioning to building to 2021 models.

The Super Stock takes the 797-hp, 6.2-liter Hemi V-8 from the Hellcat Redeye Widebody and ups the output to 807 hp, one pony shy of the pump-gas rating for the Demon. It also includes many of the same drag-focused features, including the power chiller that routes the cabin air-conditioning to cool the intake charge, a line lock for easier burnouts to ready the 315/40R18 Nitto NT05R drag radials for a launch, and electronic launch control and launch assist to attack the Christmas tree with plenty of power on tap without losing traction. Once the racing is done, the Super Stock will prevent heat soak by continuing to run the fans and electric water pump after the engine is shut down to remove heat from the powerplant. It’s basically a Demon without the Demon Crate option, full seating standard, and no 840-horsepower race tune or transbrake. It’s still capable of mid-10-second ETs and a 0-60 mph time of 3.25 seconds. That’s plenty speedy.

Despite the Dodge’s Challenger stable being absolutely packed with muscle car variants from SXT to Hellcat Redeye, there’s seemingly no easy way to configure a Super Stock on the site, even once inside the build configurator. Perhaps Challenger buyers simply weren’t aware they could get the Super Stock for 2020, or perhaps we missed the small window when the configurator was open.

If you missed your shot at a Demon and the 2020 Super Stock, don’t worry. Production of the 2021 model will pick up soon and all the goodies are still available. For now, owners of 2020 Super Stock Challengers have bragging rights that come with having one of the lowest production trim levels of any Mopar muscle car. Of course, the 2021 Super Stock will be just as capable.
