New Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody Just Announced
Dodge recently announced another exciting change to the Challenger lineup. This fall, Dodge will add the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody, which has a 3.5-inch wider rear design, to the Challenger lineup.
Inspired by the wider fender flares on the all-new 840-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody with its wider rear fenders will house 20 x 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split-five spoke aluminum wheels riding on 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero performance tires, giving drivers even more grip when on the road or track.
With the new tires and wheels paired to the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat engine, the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody has a 1.7-mile road course lap time that is 2 seconds faster than the standard Challenger SRT Hellcat. Additionally, the quarter-mile elapsed time in the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is .3 seconds faster than the Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 0-60 mph acceleration is .1 second faster.
The Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody is also equipped with a new standard electric power steering (EPS) system. The new EPS system has SRT Drive modes, which help to manage the vehicle’s increased handling.
The new Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody will arrive at dealerships in the third quarter of this year. As the largest SRT dealership in the Southeast U.S., University Dodge is sure to be one of the first dealers in South Florida to get the new Challenger models. Stay tuned to find out when they arrive on the lot!
