Dodge quietly unveiled the Charger Widebody concept at Spring Fest 14 and now the production model has been spied during a commercial shoot.
Recorded by an Instagram user, the short clip shows the upcoming sedan will feature a widebody kit that includes extended wheel arches and lightly modified bumpers. We can also see a trunk-mounted spoiler, a dual exhaust system and a ventilated rear fascia.
Dodge has been surprisingly coy about the concept, but the model follows in the footsteps of the widebody Challenger which is 3.5 inches (89 mm) wider than the standard model. The coupe also comes equipped with a competition suspension and 20-inch wheels wrapped in 305/35ZR20 tires.
Previous reports have suggested the widebody option will be available on Charger Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat models. If the report pans out, the entry-level Charger Widebody will have a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 485 hp (361 kW / 491 PS) and 475 lb-ft (643 Nm) of torque. The Hellcat, on the other hand, would have a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with at least 707 hp (527 kW / 716 PS) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.
Pricing remains unconfirmed, but the widebody package is $6,000 option on the Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Hellcat. As a result, the Charger Scat Pack Widebody could cost around $46,000 while the Hellcat Widebody could retail for a little under $75,000.
While Dodge appears to be creating promotional material for the car, it could be several more months until it is unveiled. Previous reports have suggested the Charger Widebody will debut at the Woodward Dream Cruise and that doesn’t officially kick off until August 17th.
