2020 DODGE CHARGER R/T SCAT PACK WIDEBODY LOOKS TO SEND IT AROUND CORNERS

Thick, Meaty, Beefy

Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody

Dodge has announced the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Widebody. This means that the best selling version of the Charger will now have a widebody of its own.

Like the 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody, fender flares and a revised fascia front and rear help widen the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Widebody by 3.5 inches. The wider track also welcomes bigger wheels, measuring 20 x 11 inches at all four corners, wrapped by a set of 305x35mm Pirelli P Zero tires. Despite its curb weight that approaches 4,500 lbs(!), the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack widebody can pull an impressive 0.98g on the skid pad.

Dodge says the widebody setup will help the Charger scoot its way around the track or your favorite backroad quicker, too. While the wider rubber helps, some of that newly found grip is likely a result of the updated suspension that widebody Chargers will receive, which includes beefier anti roll bars front and rear, as well as 32 percent stiffer spring rates. The Bilstein adaptive three mode dampers that were used for the Challenger widebody models remain unchanged.

But this is a muscle car, so of course the widebody kit helps with straight line speed as well. Dodge says the Scat Pack Widebody will reach 60mph from a stop in 4.3 seconds, which is two tenths slower than the standard body. Keep your foot in it however, and you’ll knock off a quarter-mile run of 12.4 seconds, which is two tenths quicker than the standard Scat Pack. We are also keen to believe that Dodge is being conservative with that 0-60 sprint time.

There is no pricing information available at this time for the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack with the widebody, we are willing to bet the price will be similar to the $6,000 Dodge charged to give the Challenger R/T Scat Pack the widebody treatment. That widebody Challenger R/T Scat Pack has often been praised as the best in the range, which bodes well for the 2020 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack widebody.
