2020 Dodge Charger Lineup
Plenty of four-door passenger cars are forgettable, but not the Dodge Charger. The Charger is America’s only four-door muscle car, and it’s also got the cool factor that plenty of other vehicles lack. The 2020 Charger is here and it’s still going strong on its seventh-generation platform, here’s what the vehicle’s lineup offers for 2020 — specs, trims, and everything in between.
Changes for 2020
The high-tier trims are the ones offering the most changes on the 2020 Charger. Now for the 2020 model year is the SRT Hellcat Widebody, the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition (limited quantity), and the Charger Scat Pack Widebody. New exterior paint options such as Frostbite, Hellraisin, and Sinamon Stick are slated for late availability. Buyers can choose from six distinct trim levels, standard rear-wheel-drive and available all-wheel-drive.
Charger SXT RWD
This is the base-tier trim, an entry-level muscle car. Standard under the hood is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that’s capable of generating 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a standard TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Other standard features on the 2020 Charger SXT trim include a rear backup camera, the latest Uconnect 4 infotainment system, a seven-inch touchscreen display, Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities, rear park assist, and keyless entry with remote start. The 2020 Dodge Charger SXT RWD has a starting MSRP of $29,895 (plus destination fee).
Charger SXT AWD
This trim is the same as the above-mentioned, but it features all-wheel-drive. The Charger SXT AWD is powered by a re-tuned Penstastar V6 that generates 300 horsepower while paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive system features an active transfer case and a front-axle that disconnects to improve fuel economy. The 2020 Dodge Charger SXT AWD has a starting MSRP of $33,595 (plus destination fee).
Charger GT RWD
A step up from the base-tier, the Charger GT is powered by a re-tuned variant of the 2.6-liter Pentastar V6, yielding 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. The engine is also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, but the GT also offers drivers paddle shifters that drive the rear wheels only. There’s also the matter of improved looks, the GT has a performance hood, sculpted side sills, a performance fascia, performance seats and suspension, a re-calibrated steering wheel, a rear spoiler, and an even larger 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen display. As part of the 2020 upgrades, the Charger GT also features new 20-inch Satin Carbon wheels.
Buyers who are looking for a little bit more can opt for the Performance Handling Group upgrade that adds a flat-bottom leather steering wheel, Brembo four-piston brakes with fixed calipers, all-season tires, a high-performance suspension, and 20-inch by 9-inch forged Black Noise wheels. Other additional packages include the Blacktop Package featuring 19-inch Black Noise wheels, and an Alcantara and caramel Nappa leather interior combo. The 2020 Dodge Charger GT has a starting MSRP of $31,895 (plus destination fee).
Here’s where the Charger lineup severely amps up its power, the R/T trim is powered by the iconic 5.7-liter HEMI V8, with its 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. The engineis paired to the same TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission as before and comes exclusively with rear-wheel-drive. For 2020 the R/T comes standard with 20-inch by 8-inch Satin Carbon wheels, new fender badges, and a modernized HEMI script. Buyers can opt for the Performance Handling Group or the Blacktop Package, just like the above-mentioned GT trim. The 2020 Dodge Charger R/T has a starting MSRP of $36,995 (plus destination fee).
Charger Scat Pack
Often considered as the best trim in the lineup thanks to its most-muscle-per-dollar status, the Charger Scat Pack is powered by a specially-tuned HEMI V8 that’s generating 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. For the 2020 model year, the Charger Scat Pack features a revised Dynamics Package that sets it apart. Standard on the 2020 Charger Scat Pack is a leather-flat bottom tiller, 20-inch by 9.5-inch low-gloss black wheels clad in all-season tires, and black Brmbo six-piston front brakes. Other new features for the 2020 model year include a carbon and suede package, extra wheel options, and new badging on the instrument panel. The 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack has a starting MSRP of $39,995 (plus destination fee).
Charger Scat Pack Widebody
2020 marks the first time that the Charger receives the Widebody treatment. The engine powering this trim is a 392 cubic-inch HEMI V8 with 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. The Widebody gives the charger a set of wider fender flares that add an extra 3.5-inches of body width. Those extra 3.5 inches make a difference and help accommodate the larger 20-inch by 11-inch split-five spoke wheels clad in high-performance Pirelli tires. There’s also a specially-tuned suspension that improves riding and handling with Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping and selectable electric power steering. The 2020 Charger Scat Pack Widebody has a starting MSRP of $45,995 (plus destination fee).
Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody
Notorious for being the fastest and most powerful mass-produced sedan in the world, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody is the gem of this lineup. Under the hood, you’ll find a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 with 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 196 mph, making it the Charger with the most bragging rights. The front fascia is new for the 2020 model year and it includes an innovative “mail-slot grille” to provide more air for the radiator and help it cool. Just like the Scat Pack, the SRT Hellcat Widebody also features Pirelli performance tires for ultimate grip, a Carbon & Suede Package, and the Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping and selectable power steering that help improve riding and handling. The 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody has a starting MSRP of $69,645 (plus destination fee).
Charger Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition
Like we stated earlier, this Charger is not only-one-of-a-kind, but it’s also truly limited edition — only 501 units were produced, an homage to the same production number of the 1969 Charger Daytona. Under the hood, buyers will find a recalibrated 6.2-liter Supercharged HEMI V8 that generates 717 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition is only available in Pitch Black, White Knuckle, Triple Nickel, and B5 Blue, and features a decklid spoiler and rear-quarter decals.
