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.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
