The 2020 Dodge Challenger Bears Some Changes
The 2019 model year Dodge Challenger received a lot of love from its manufacturer, with the debut of two new models for 2019: the R/T Scat Pack Widebody and the 797-horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye. Dodge recently announced various updates for its current lineup. While part of the lineup, like the 2020 Journey, will see no changes, both the Dodge Challenger and Challenger SRT have been given plenty of updates for the 2020 model year.
In terms of noticeable design changes, the style of the Challenger will remain within its retro looks, but there’ll be nine new wheel options, and finishes. SXT and GT trims — when equipped with all-wheel-drive — will have standard 19-inch Satin Carbon wheels and optional Black Noise wheels, both are part of the Blacktop Package. The GT trim with rear-wheel-drive will feature new standard 20-inch Satin Carbon wheels and optional Lights Out wheels — part of the Performance Handling Group. R/T models will feature 20-inch Satin Carbon wheels as the standard as well, but also offer optional polished Tinted Clear wheels (Plus Group) or Lights Out wheels (Performance Handling Group). Standard on the R/T Scat Pack are 20-inch Low Gloss Granite wheels, while the Widebody models such as the Hellcat and Hellcat Redeye features the new 20- X 11-inch Low Gloss Black wheels.
Other updates include new HEMI fender badges for the R/T and a Scat Pack Bee spoiler badge for the R/T Scat Pack. Dodge also added three new exterior paint options: Sinamon Stick, Hellraisin, and Frostbite. All trims that feature leather upholstery will also have an all-new premium-stitched dash, upper door panels, and optional carbon-fiber bezels as well that are paired with a Dynamica suede headliner on all V8 models. The Performance Handling Group on the GT (rear-wheel-drive) and R/T trims, as well as the Dynamics Package for the R/T Scat Pack and Widebody Package on the R/T Scat Pack all feature a new flat-bottom leather steering wheel.Challenger GT, R/T, and R/T Scat Pack trims all offer a new Caramel Alcantara interior color option as well.
Engine options remain unchanged from last year, which means that all SXT and GT trims come standard with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 under the hood offering 305 horsepower. Challenger R/T trims are powered by Dodge’s infamous 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with up to 375 horsepower, while the Challenger R/T Scat Pack and Scat Pack Widebody trims rely on a naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V8 that’s capable of generating 485 horsepower. The Challenger SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Redeye trims both reign supreme with a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 under the hood. Top output is 797 horsepower from the Hellcat Redeye.
