2020 Dodge Charger May Come In Widebody Form
February 5th, 2019
If you've been waiting for Dodge to release a widebody Charger, your wait may be over. Two widebody models could come to showroom floors - a 2020 R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. Mopar Insiders says they have been in contact with Dodge, but specifics have not been released.
In addition to wider fender flares, the amped-up four-door family sedan would get an updated dual-snorkel grille with relocated intakes now in the upper sections, altered side sills, and feature the Charger SRT Hellcat hood. Of course, front and rear fascias will be changed to adapt to the wider lines, and will be "radically redesigned". Unique suspension tuning will accommodate the wider body.
In regards to power, the engine bay likely won't change in the widebody models. You'll still get to choose from a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V8 with 485-horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque in the R/T Scat Pack, or you can opt for the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 in the Hellcat. Although, it may be a possibility that it could be bumped up to 717-horsepower like in the 2019 Challenger Hellcat model, if not it will still make a stout 707-hp with 650 lb. ft. of torque at the very least.
Also, the standard launch control feature is expected, and the car could sit on dual-five-spoke 20x11 wheels with some beefy 305/35 Pirelli ZR 20 rubber.
Now, that we've made it this far, how about a 797-hp Redeye Charger widebody?
