2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Spied Undisguised During Promo Shoot

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.

    They’re going to sell a ton of these.

  • Bobby Lee

    Either make an all new version or kill it already!

    • performante

      Why? The Charger and Challenger print money, lol

  • Seats & a steering wheel

    Imagine if these things had Toyota levels of reliability? They score TOP MARKS in just about every other area.

  • Matt

    That IG account’s use of emoji is headache-inducing.

  • .. EL CHAPO THA GREAT 🤴🏻

    This thing needs a redesign

  • kachuks

    At what point did 485hp/475lb.ft. become entry level? You couldn’t trust me with that kind of power.

  • Ben

    It always baffles me how people shout from the rafters in the comment section “redesign it already! Its old, fat and blah blah blah”, but they’re never the ones that actually buy it. In fact, they’re almost never the ones buying the competition either. Its always the armchair prospective buyers who pass judgement. Meanwhile people are still buying the charger just fine.

    The same goes with many cars. My 4Runner gets a lot of hate in online reviews “Oh, its so basic in here. Where’s the Apple CarPlay bro? Like, OMG, no wireless charging for my Iphone?! This is so basic bro.” but when you see what they drive, its something not even in the same category as the 4Runner( like a Hyundai Sonata). Like, WTF, do people just randomly walk in steakhouses and complain about the cuts of meat even though they’re vegetarian? Do diesel prices make you angry even though you drive a Tesla? Are you outraged by Chrysler’s quality control even though you’re all about that VTEC yo? #StayInYourLane

    • ErnieB

      I love the challenger the way it is.. it’s awesome, and it’s aged extremely well.. but the charger needs something .. Ive wanted to like it but never have.. perhaps if they implement some retro styling to it? I don’t know.

    • Liam Paul

      wait so it shocked you that people who say they don’t like a outdated car , also does not want to buy it?

      • Ben

        No what shocks me is that people complain about something they were never going to buy anyway. I’d be more understanding if someone complained about, say, a BMW 7 Series and bought an S Class instead. That’s called cross shopping. However, some people would complain about a 7-Series and buy a Toyota RAV4. They weren’t even looking to buy in the same class as what they criticized.

        Its funny that usually the vehicles that catch flak for being outdated, poorly designed or ugly are usually the ones still posting up great sales figures. Yes, my 4Runner is “outdated”, but that is the charm of it. The same way cars with manual transmissions are “outdated”. Yet people still search for and love that analog back to basics feeling. People call the Charger fat or whatever, but also loath that the full sized V8 family sedan is disappearing. People cry about SUVs becoming too soft nowadays and aren’t real trucks anymore, but stomp their feet when CarPlay isn’t offered or doesn’t get 30mpg city.

  • Leconte Dave

    I want one

  • GiorgioN

    But why don’t they also market in Europe ??? It would be appropriate to return the Chrysler-Dodge brand to Europe after the Marchionese filth of rebadging with the Lancia

  • Craig

    Will there be a Charger Redeye?

  • Major Lee Gassole

    I guess it’s safe to say that every truck with glued/taped/screwed/bolted fender flares is now called a “wide body”.

  • Harry_Wild

    No AWD?

  • Leconte Dave

    No , coming next year

  • Patrick

    As we know, The charger is built on an older Mercedes platform, this is a good thing. The current Mercedes E class feels like a tin can compared to the older e class with the same chassis as the charger..the charger feels like a solid Mercedes. I’ve owned both. So I’m not looking forward to a completely new charger/challenger.

    • HURACAN

      It’s not built on a Mercedes platform, it’s on the LX platform which was developed by Chrysler, it is based off of the E-Class and did use Mercedes components (suspension, AWD, 5-speed) from 2005-2010.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    Stop with the BS, FCA. Bring a new model, now.

    This thing is ancient.
