A couple of days ago, we showed a production-spec 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody that was caught shooting a new Dodge commercial. Now, our spy photographers have caught one of the dozen prototype 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebodies out on the public road testing. However, this one features some different equipment than the other cars that have been spotted.
This prototype features the current Charger SRT HELLCAT rear spoiler, which we have seen on several of these Charger Widebody prototypes. This one, however, features a unique set of wheels. The car features a Widebody-version of the original multi-spoke wheel design featured on the Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT, SRT392, and R/T Scat Pack with the Dynamics Package. The cars we have seen thus far have featured a unique dual 5-spoke design.
The prototype also shows us more angles from a distance on exactly how much this new Widebody-version of the Charger stands out. While the busy graphics are attended to be hard for photographers to take pictures of the car, we see that the Charger Widebody design blends the new wider flares better into the body, compared to it’s Challenger sibling. The new front fascia steals some of its design elements from the Dodge Durango SRT. Absent are the LED foglights, similar to the current Charger SRT HELLCAT models to add for additional cooling to the 717 horsepower (new rating for 2020 model year) 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8. The rear fascia has been updated as well to allow for the new Widebody, and we see how the back end sticks out more so than the current car in these latest pictures.
We expect Dodge to be dropping some new information soon about the upcoming Charger Widebody. Last year, Dodge teased the 2019 Dodge Challenger updates in May. With the new car being on the set of a commercial, it usually takes about a month after a commercial is completed for it to make its debut, which would put it right around the May timeline.
MoparInsiders believes that we might see a teaser next month, with an official debut to the press at the FCA What’s New Event, an annual ride and drive event put on by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles at the Chelsea Proving Grounds in late June. Last year Dodge rolled out the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT HELLCAT Redeye in the same way. The Charger Widebody would then be shown to the public later at the Woodward Dream Cruise in August.
Stay tuned as we continue to bring you all the news and information surrounding the new Dodge Charger Widebody models.
