4 Reasons Why the 2020 Charger Widebody Will be a Success

July 31st, 2019 by

Months of speculation fueled the intrigue about the 2020 Dodge Charger, but Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) finally confirmed that there would be a 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody. The Charger Widebody will be available in Hellcat and Scat Pack variants. For the most part, the reception has been positive, but there are some who doubt that consumers will be interested in an even bigger performance sedan. No one will be able to tell until sales figures are made public, but here are four key reasons as to why the 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody is sure to be a success.

New Look

The 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody is the hot new item with a hot new look on the American performance market. As for the Charger itself, it hasn’t had any major upgrades since 2015, thus a new Widebody package is a welcome change in the lineup. Potential buyers even have two options to choose from — those interested in the Widebody aesthetics can opt for the Scat Pack, which will save them money when compared to the Hellcat Widebody edition. Enthusiasts who aren’t interested in 707 horsepower can opt for the other option and save some money in the long run. 

Fans of the Design

The overall reception has been overwhelmingly positive, indicating that there’s an interest in the 2020 Charger Widebody. A quick survey of online comments shows that people are loving the overall muscular look with its flared wheel openings. Although comments don’t necessarily translate into sales, many commenters do sound enthusiastic about getting the Charger Widebody when it goes on sale. 

Improved Performance

It’s no secret that the 2020 Charger Widebody offers improved performance over the standard-width body. Performance improvements stem from the fact that a much wider tire fits under all four corners, which in turn improves low-end acceleration and makes for a better cornering grip as well. As a result of these few changes, the 2020 Charger Widebody is faster in the quarter mile and significantly faster overall around a course. Anyone looking to buy a 2020 Dodge Charger with performance as a priority should definitely opt for the Widebody package, even if they’re not heading out on the drag strip. 

The Only Dodge Charger Hellcat Available in 2020

With the Widebody feature a standard on the SRT Hellcat variant, Dodge is poised to sell at least 2,000 Charger Widebody vehicles. Dodge has averaged 2,427 supercharged sedans per year (2015-2018), with hopes of breaking that record come 2020. Every 2020 Charger Hellcat sold will have the Widebody design, thus helping the company sell at least 2,000 Widebody sedans in the first model year.
