2020 Dodge Charger
The 2020 Dodge Charger is the world’s only four-door muscle car, making it a one-of-a-kind option in its segment. More muscle is the key for the 2020 model year as the Charger gets a Widebody package addition. Dodge is also offering diehard fans a Limited Edition 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona Anniversary trim as well. Other than these two new trims, Dodge has made very little changes to the Charger model overall — here’s what the brand is offering buyers in 2020.

Engines and Trims
The 2020 Dodge Charger comes in seven different trims — SXT RWD, SXT AWD, GT, R/T, Scat Pack, Scat Pack Widebody, and SRT Hellcat Widebody. Additionally, Dodge also offers the Daytona Anniversary Edition trim for the 2020 model year. All-wheel-drive is available on the SXT trim only, with the remainder of the Charger lineup exclusively featuring rear-wheel-drive. The base trims — the SXT and GT — are powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine capable of generating 300 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque. A TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission with variable valve timing (VVT) technology is standard.
The Charger R/T trim is powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that generates 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. This HEMI engine is not only equipped with VVT technology, it also features a multi-displacement system (MDS) that’s designed to improve fuel economy figures in engines with a larger displacement. Dodge offers customers two different SRT engines: there’s the 92 cubic-inch SRT HEMI V8 and a Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8. The 92 cubic-inch HEMI V8 is standard on the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack and Scat Pack Widebody variants with an impressive 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. The most potent engine is reserved for the top-tier of the Charger lineup, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. The Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine is capable of 707 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque — pretty hefty figures given that this vehicle is part of the four-door sedan segment.
When it comes to the 2020 Dodge Charger, personalization is easy thanks to the available decals, stripes, and other add-ons that Dodge offers customers. Standard on the 2020 Dodge Charger are features such as: automatic headlamps, an acoustic windshield, LED daytime running lamps, solar control glass to mitigate cabin heat buildup, acoustic front door glass, and remote keyless entry. Heated exterior mirrors and 20-inch wheels come standard on every trim except the base-tier SXT trim which offers 17-inch wheels instead and no heated exterior mirrors.
The interior of the 2020 Dodge Charger includes a standard 60/40 rear folding seat to help with cargo storage and seating configurations, is clad in cloth upholstery, along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob. Features such as automatic temperature control and steering-wheel-mounted shift control come standard on all trims except the base-tier SXT trim. Optional features include ventilated and heated front seats, heated second-row seats, leather upholstery and a power sunroof.
The 2020 Dodge Charger is equipped with the latest Uconnect 4 infotainment system. It includes Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capabilities and hands-free Bluetooth voice command and connectivity. A 7-inch touchscreen display along with a six-speaker sound system is standard on the SXT trim, while the rest of the lineup features a larger 8.4-inch display and a stellar six-speaker Alpine audio system. In addition to the Alpine sound system, an HD radio, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and DriveUconnect are available on all trims but the base-tier SXT. The SRT Performance Pages and SRT Configurable Drive Modes are included only on the Scat Pack, Scat Pack Widebody, and SRT Hellcat Widebody trims.
