Wider & Faster: Dodge Unveils 2020 Charger Hellcat and Charger Scat Pack Widebody

Ever since Dodge decided to rework its Challenger with the SRT Hellcat Widebody and later the Scat Pack Widebody, people have been wondering whether the same changes would be applied to the four-door Dodge Charger as well. Now after a few months of prototypes and rumors, Dodge has spilled the beans on the 2020 Widebody Chargers.

2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Hellcat and Scat Pack

If you are at all familiar with the Widebody Challenger, there aren't many surprises as to what the Charger's Widebody upgrades will include. Not only will the cars feature the more aggressive, flared fenders and other exterior touches, but there will be a number of suspension and braking upgrades as well.

For the Charger Scat Pack, the Widebody will be an available option package that will feature the same 485hp 6.4L V8 as the standard Scat Pack, but with a variety of performance upgrades. For starters, underneath the widened fenders will sit 20x11-inch wheels mounted with 305/35/20 tires.

The Widebody package also includes a revised suspension setup with adaptive Bilstein dampers, stiffer springs and a larger rear sway bar. The package also includes six-piston Brembo front brakes that are said to be good for a three foot shorter stopping distance than the standard Scat Pack. Dodge also claims significantly better performance all around when compared to the "narrow" Charger Scat Pack, with the quarter mile coming at 12.4 at 111 mph and .98g of grip on the skid pad.

When it comes to the 707hp 2020 SRT Charger Hellcat, the Widebody and associated upgrades are now standard equipment, and the included upgrades are very similar to those that come with the Scat Pack's Widebody Package.

With the wider tires, bigger brakes and more aggressive suspension tune, Dodge claims the 2020 Charger Hellcat will run the quarter mile in 10.96 seconds, pull .96g of grip and lap a 2.1 mile road course 2.1 seconds faster than the old Charger Hellcat.

Both the the Charger Scat Pack Widebody and Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody will be available to order this fall, with deliveries to begin early next year. Pricing hasn't been announced but we'd expect the costs to fall in line with its Challenger platform mate.

All in all, Dodge has continued to do a great job keeping the now ancient LX platform relevant by adding more performance and goodies, and now the only thing we are still waiting on is for them to finally add a stick shift option to the Charger.
