Without making a big fuss about it, Dodge has unveiled a widebody Charger design concept at the Spring Fest 14 in Pomona, California.
As it turns out, it’s the exact same car that an Instagram user spotted earlier this week near Detroit — the artistic SRT-themed camouflage gives it away. Dodge didn’t share much about Charger Widebody Concept, posting only two photos on its media website and Facebook page.
However, Dodge’s and SRT’s design boss Mark Trostle posted more images of the Charger Widebody on Instagram, albeit without any details. Looking at the snaps, it’s pretty clear this is a concept in name only.
Dodge is highly likely to start offering the widebody option on the 2020 Charger, as suggested by the fact that the show car features a revised front end — something the 2020 Charger is expected to bring. The Charger Widebody show car adopts a similar grille to the Durango SRT, as well as more generous air intakes on each corner of the front bumper. The grille no longer features the additional intakes for the supercharger; those seem to have migrated to the bumper.
The rear fascia carries some updates as well including a massive boot lid spoiler and refreshed bumper with bigger vents. But the highlight is obviously the widebody treatment which makes the Charger look much more menacing. As with the Challenger Widebody, the fender flares are expected to increase the car’s sticker price by $6,000.
We have to admit the Charger Widebody looks phenomenal and we can’t wait to see it without the camouflage livery to better assess the changes. According to the latest reports, Dodge is contemplating offering the widebody option on two models: the top-dog Charger SRT Hellcat and the 392 Scat Pack.
