The Dodge Charger Scat Pack is the most popular trim level of the vehicle lineup, offering muscle car appeal with its V8 engine and rear wheel drive in the form of a four-door family sedan. As is the case with the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody, driving impressions are under lock and key until Wednesday, October 9. So for now, we can only share with you our live photos from the first drive event that took place at Sonoma Raceway in California.

The new widebody style is standard on 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and available on the Dodge Charger Scat Pack, adding 3.5 inches of total width to the body to accommodate gargantuan Pirelli P Zero summer performance tires measuring 305/35ZR20 (just like the 2020 Charger Hellcat), which were fitted on the vehicles we tested around Sonoma. Pirelli all-season tires are standard.

The 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody maintains its 392-cubic-inch (6.4L) Hemi V8 engine, with a best-in-class 485 horsepower mated to a ZF-sourced TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. 0-60 times for the 2020 Charger Scat Pack Widebody comes in at 4.3 seconds, with a quarter-mile ET in 12.4 seconds. In terms of cornering forcers, the Scat Pack Widebody is identical to the 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody, pulling .98 g on the skid pad. Around FCA’s 2.1-mile road course, the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody runs 1.3 seconds faster than standard Charger Scat Pack, equal to eight car lengths after one lap.

For stopping power, the 2020 Charger Scat Pack Widebody utilizes a Brembo braking system featuring two-piece 15.4-inch front brake rotors with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers. Stopping distance from 60-0 is 107 feet, three feet shorter than the standard Scat Pack.

The standard wheels on the Charger Scat Pack Widebody are 20-inch by 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split-five spoke with a low-gloss Granite finish. Optional wheels are 20-inch by 11-inch finished in Carbon Black.

Along with the extra tire meat for added grip, the 2020 Charger Scat Pack Widebody also features upgraded springs, sway bars and shocks from standard. Increased front spring rates are 27 percent stiffer, the rear sway bar is expanded from 19 mm to 22 mm, and the damper calibration is updated match suspension tuning revisions.

Dodge says that Launch Control, Launch Assist and Line Lock features come standard on all Scat Pack models.
