2020 Dodge Charger Rumored To Get A Widebody Option

The Dodge Charger is getting pretty long-in-tooth, but the model remains relatively popular as the company managed to sell over 80,000 units in the United States last year. Part of the model’s longevity is due to the countless variants the company introduces every year and it appears that trend will continue in the future.

According to Mopar Insiders, Dodge is planning to offer a widebody option on the 2020 Charger. Rumored to be available on R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat models, the widebody option will mimic that offered on the Challenger.

In regards to the Charger, the widebody model will reportedly have “drastically different looking” fascias, extended fender flares and unique side skirts. The widebody variants are also slated to receive a revised grille and a set of 20-inch aluminum wheels. The cars are also rumored to have unique suspension tuning as well as some other minor upgrades.

Engine options will reportedly carryover as the Charger R/T Scat Pack widebody should have a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 485 hp (361 kW / 491 PS) and 475 lb-ft (643 Nm) of torque. Likewise, the Charger SRT Hellcat widebody will presumably use a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that develops 707 hp (527 kW / 716 PS) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

Interestingly, the report suggests there aren’t any immediate plans to install the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye’s engine into the Charger. That’s a bit disappointing as the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 develops 797 hp (594 kW / 808 PS) and 707 lb-ft (957 Nm) of torque. It enables the coupe to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.4 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 203 mph (326 km/h).

If the rumors pan out, the 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody could make an appearance at the Woodward Dream Cruise which takes place on August 17th.

    The widebody Challenger looks great, but I’m not sure about this one

  • Liam Paul

    I have a feeling this car in it’s current design with just raceboy body part updates will sell well beyond 2025 , hell maybe into 2030 that and the challenger as well.. Heck I bet if FCA put a hemi in the Journey with a body kit, it would make it to 2025 lol.

    I used to think these cars would die in sales but all of dodge models I guess are selling good enough to keep them lingering on , well maybe not the caravan but then again, priced right, who knows

  • Liam Paul

    The way dodge is doing good, maybe FCA should put the 300 and Pacifica models in the Dodge lineup and kill the brand chrysler and have just one american brand, rename the Pacifica to the Dodge Caravan and the 300 to Dodge Magnum

      What was the whole point of moving the Dodge ram to just ram brand?

  • Matt

    Widebody all the things!

  • Keys D

    finally

  • diesel_vdub

    The darn thing is already wide enough… the genius owners can barely fit them in a parking space.

    • Alduin

      They just have to cut holes in the walls and add another garage door at the end of it so it fits.

  • Bash

    Sounds good to me!

  • Alduin

    So an S8 competitor at this point?

  • Alduin

    Hell yeah make it so wide that you can’t even get in or out of it!

  • Shtekeris

    Cant wait for this to go electric, so we can say “I have to charge my Charger” eee oooouu

  • TB

    Meh…sure…why not?

  • Emoto

    How many more years can FCA keep this (and the Challenger) platform with only minor tweaking?

    • helloWorld

      probably another 5

  • TyrantRex

    Why? It already one of the bulkiest cars on the road.

    • helloWorld
