Taking a page from the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, the 2020 Dodge Charger sedan may come with a widebody option this year.
According to Mopar Insiders, the 2020 Dodge Charger is rumored to get a widebody option. The manufacturer has always managed to keep the hype and interest in the Challenger and Charger ranges alive with variants and updates on a regular basis. So there is a strong chance of them replicating the same success that they achieved with the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody in the case of their sedan.
If it happens, the widebody option will be made available on R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat models. In addition to a revised front fascia, wider fenders flares, and side skirts, the widebody Charger will be getting a new pair of wheels. There is also the possibility of some minor upgrades being added to the widebody variant along with a suspension tweak.
When it comes to power plants, both the Charger R/T Scat Pack and the SRT Hellcat will continue to have their existing engines without any tuning changes. Not a bad piece of news at all, since the Charger R/T Scat Pack has a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 485 hp and 475 lb-ft. The Charger SRT Hellcat, on the other hand, employs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that develops 707 hp and 650 lb-ft.
The 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody is rumored to make its first public appearance at the Woodward Dream Cruise in August this year. What we’d love to see alongside it is a Charger powered by the 6.2-liter V8 engine from the Challenger Hellcat Redeye. However, Dodge currently has no plans to shoehorn the 797 hp, 707 lb-ft engine into the sedan.
