Wide Load: 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Debuts

After teasing us earlier this week, Dodge has taken the wraps off the 2020 Charger Widebody. The extended wheel-flares are going to be available on two separate Charger models for 2020.

Buyers interested in this unique Charger will have to default to either the Charger Scat Pack or the SRT Hellcat. In both instances the Charger adds 3.5 inches of body width, enough to slot in 20- by 11-inch wheels that are wrapped in 305/35ZR20 tires.

Attached to those wider wheels is a uniquely tuned suspension with three-mode adaptive damping from the Bilstein brand. In addition to the suspension changes, both Widebody models will be equipped with a high-performance braking system that features six-piston Brembo front calipers and two-piece front rotors.

Widebody models also feature a new electric power steering system. The new steering system is tied to the drive modes within the Charger, allowing drivers to tailor the steering feel to their preference.

Aside from the obvious wider stance, the 2020 Charger is debuting with a few styling changes. The most obvious change for 2020 is a new “mail slot” within the existing grille design. A new spoiler and more aggressive front and rear fascias round out the changes.

From a power perspective, there are no upgrades for the Widebody variants. The Charger Scat Pack continues to be powered by a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with 485 horsepower. If that isn’t enough, buyers can jump to the Charger SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower and the Widebody treatment, which is enough to send the Charger from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds.

Dodge has yet to announce pricing for the Charger Widebody variants, but says the car will commence production at the end of this year with sales starting in early 2020.
