Charger Set to Go Wide for 2020 Model Year

2019 Dodge Charger Scat Pack

Mopar Insiders claim the R/T Scat Pack and Hellcat will gain widebody looks similar to the Hellcat Redeye.

There’s nothing more awesome than a high-performance Dodge, especially when it comes to the Charger R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. Not only do you get four doors to slam down the quarter-mile, you get tons of horsepower and torque and the admiration (or envy) of everyone around you. How could it possibly get any better?

How about a wider stance? Mopar Insiders reports the 2020 Charger R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat will be available with widebody kits

Both widebody Charger models are expected to have redesigned front and rear fascias to better blend with the wider fenders, and both will have the current Hellcat hood to top it off. Power is planned to remain the same as they are for the respective 2019 models: the 485-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi V8 in the Scat Pack, the 707-HP 6.2-liter Hemi supercharged V8 in the Hellcat.

As for when the wider Chargers will make their grand entrance, Mopar Insiders say they could perform their first burnouts as early as the Woodward Dream Cruise in August. If this is true, then the dream cruise will be the perfect event to show up the 2020 Shelby GT500 at it’s own game, assuming it even shows up at all. We definitely can’t wait to see how these new beasts will look coming down the street.
