There is something about a wide body on a sports car that just gives it an aggressive, powerful look. If you have been wanting this look on a Dodge Charger, you won’t have to wait any longer. Dodge has announced two wide-body Charger models for the 2020 model year: the R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat.
Dodge says the two new models have “radically redesigned” side sills and fascias in order to add the new wide-body parts. The unique models will also have retuned suspensions. A unique dual-snorkel grille with an upper intake will complete the bold, new look.
According to Motor Trend, the wide-body models will come standard with launch control and 20×11-inch wheels. Under the hood, the Scat Pack model will come with a 6.4-liter V8 rated at 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. As for the Hellcat, it has even more power with its 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that delivers 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s possible there may be a 797-horsepower Redeye version available later.
The Scat Pack models will come standard with Brembo® high-performance brakes, a heavy-duty engine cooling system, and a limited-slip rear differential. The Hellcat model adds an upgraded suspension and steering system.
