Earlier this month, Dodge teased us with a concept version of their upcoming 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody at the SoCal LX Club’s 14th annual Spring Fest event at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California. Now the production version of Dodge’s latest Charger has been caught out in public, in what appears to be a shoot for either a commercial or some kind of marketing promotion of the sedan.
The short Instagram clip by eviil_srt, shows a blue 2020 Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT Widebody in a dirt parking lot slowly turning around. For the few seconds, we see the car, we get a good look at a couple of important details.
First of is the rear spoiler. The car looks to have ditched the standard performance spoiler and has gone with a body-colored version of what looks like the spoiler that came standard on the on certain Dodge Charger models starting back in the 2015 model year. This spoiler does not look as tall as the one shown on the Dodge Charger Widebody Concept shown at the Spring Fest event. According to our sources, the spoiler shown on the Spring Fest concept will be an optional spoiler for the 2020 model year.
Second, we clearly see that the rear widebody fascia exactly matches the rear fascia of the concept that the FCA Product Design Office took to Spring Fest. It even has the same rear bumper defuser as the concept. While the quality of the video isn’t the greatest, if you look close enough you will be able to see that the wheels look to be exactly like the ones on the concept too.
Lastly, the license plate. If you look closely, you will see that the plate is in body color. This has been a trait for some of the Dodge promotional advertisements and used during its commercials. So it seems very likely, that Dodge is working on getting some new commercials of its new Charger sedan before its official debut. Dodge’s latest “Muscleville” series of commercials also use the same kind of plates.
