Dodge Unveils the Charger Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody


Two Widebody Muscle Sedans

Just the other day we reported on the teaser that Dodge posted for its new Charger variants. Now the company has officially revealed the cars. Meet the Charger Hellcat Widebody and the Charger Scat Pack Widebody. The two cars will be added to the Charger range in 2020. 

The Charger Hellcat Widebody is exactly what you think it is. The company took the venerable supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that’s used in other Hellcat models and put it in the Charger. Yep, 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, baby. Then the boys at SRT decided to widen the car by 3.5 inches overall. The car can do a 0-60 mph sprint in just 3.6 seconds. It will run a 10.96 quarter mile time. It can also pull .96 g on the skidpad, which means it’ll handle pretty well around a track, too. It has a top speed of 196 mph.

The Scat Pack Widebody gets the same widebody treatment. Under the hood, the car gets the naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V8 engine that makes a hearty 485 hp. This car obviously isn’t quite as fast as its Hellcat brother but it’ll still do a 0-60 mph time in 4.3 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds. It manages to pull a slightly better .98 g on the skidpad, so it’s also a decent handling machine, too.

It’s amazing that Dodge can keep powering on with the Charger. The design is an old one that dates back more than a decade, but the company keeps finding new ways to make it enticing. These two models are by far the most impressive performance versions yet.
