2020 Dodge Charger SRT Widebody
From its updated grille and re-trimmed interior to the snarling V8 engine and 11-inch wide tires, there’s nothing subtle about the 2020 Dodge Charger. Hailed as America’s only 4-door muscle car, its massive power, impressive width and improved handling on the curves, make it one of the quickest sedans around.
Effortless power from the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 sprints from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. The seductive growl bursts into a roar when you hit the gas. The 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque give you dominance off the line and on the straightaways. Choose the Track mode for the best throttle response and take advantage of the stiffer suspension tuning. The paddle shifters let you squeeze every last drop of performance out of this four-wheeled brute.
Until now, curves and corners were an issue. With the wider body, 3.5-inch fender flairs make room for the and 20-inch Pirelli tires wrapped around killer wheels; you get a mechanical grip and super sticky tires that translate into better maneuverability. The longer wheelbase and larger sway bars minimize body roll, providing more stability.
An overhauled suspension and Bilstein three-mode adaptive dampeners let the Charger Widebody leap forward while still giving you control, with very little wiggle coming out of the turns. The hydraulic steering is replaced with a new electronic system. Not only does this option give the drive a different feel, but drivers can also select the mode with the optimal desired steering feedback. Choose from Sport, Comfort and Normal for precise customization.
Dodge delivers stopping power when you need it. The four-piston Brembo high-performance brakes provide improved steering control in slippery or extreme braking conditions. For racing-inspired stopping power on the open road, choose the six-piston Brembo ultra-high-performance brakes.
The hood scoop allows efficient airflow and the dual air extractors, which allows for better cooling. Greater downforce in the back keeps the nose down while the tires grip pavement with a satisfying bite on the turns. The grille delivers a fierce look that gives your ride flair. Options include a sleek LED racetrack taillamp, power sunroof, remote start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic climate control.
Power is the centerpiece of the Charger Widebody, so only a few details have changed. Although there are new colors available, the interior still matches the muscular exterior. It has the same beefy steering wheel, supportive seats, and large buttons and dials it has always had. The biggest change is the addition of technology features in the Charger SRT.
They give the interior an update that makes it feel a little less dated. Optional adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, along with the forward-collision and lane-departure warnings, are the only driver-assistance features. However, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, so you don’t need to spend a lot on embedded tech to get the most popular options. Navigation is optional and the Uconnect infotainment system has an 8.4-inch touchscreen.
One of the 10 trims are now available, The 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack has two options. The R/T runs from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, vs. the Hellcat’s 3.6 seconds. It lets you get maximum horsepower for a low price. With the added grip and stability, the Charger is still fun to drive without sacrificing power or control.
