2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Starts From $71,140

 

Dodge announced today that the pinnacle of the four-door Charger lineup–the 2020 SRT Hellcat Widebody–will cost $71,140; a limited-edition Daytona 50th model will cost $75,635.

Dodge’s updates for the Charger for 2019 were relatively light, especially when you consider that the car’s Challenger stablemate received the 797-horsepower SRT Hellcat Redeye option for the same year. This isn’t the case for the 2020 Charger which rolls into dealers early next year with a new wide-body option.

The wide-body option, known as the Charger Widebody, is limited to three grades, though one of these is a special edition with limited production. The grades are the Scat Pack, SRT Hellcat, and Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.

Back in June, Dodge revealed the 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. At the time, Dodge claimed it was the fastest mass-produced sedan in the world. Dodge’s super sedan packs the familiar supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 707 horsepower (527 kilowatts) and 650 pound-feet (881 Newton-meters) of torque, sending it to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.6 seconds. The numbers were impressive, but we’ve been missing pricing information until now. The 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody will start at $71,140. All prices include the $1,495 destination charge.

Autoblog revealed that the rest of the range doesn’t get a price bump higher than $250 save for the Hellcat Widebody. The 2019 Charger didn’t offer Widebody variants, so those are new for 2020. The lineup with MSRP changes from 2019:

  1. Charger GT RWD $33,390 ($150 more than 2019)
  2. Charger SXT AWD $35,090 ($25 more)
  3. Charger R/T $37,890 ($150 more)
  4. Charger Scat Pack $41,490 ($250 less)
  5. Charger Scat Pack Widebody $47,490 (brand new model)
  6. Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody $71,140 ($2,150 more than 2019 non-widebody)
  7. Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition $75,635 (brand new model)

Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition starts at $75,635. The extra dough gets more power – 717 hp (534 kW) compared to 707 hp (527 kW). There are other Daytona-inspired visual upgrades, too. If the Hellcat is a bit too rich, there’s the Charger Scat Pack Widebody that starts at $47,490. Take away the widebody, and you save $6,000 – the non-widebody Scat Pack Starts at $41,490. The entry-level V8 offering, the R/T, starts at $37,890, but don’t expect Hellcat power.

Those that don’t want to pay V8 prices have a trio of V6-powered Dodge offerings. The cheapest, the SXT, starts at $31,390. The Charger GT starts at $33,390. All-wheel-drive commands $35,090 to start. All three are powered by Dodge’s 3.6-liter V6. In the entry-level SXT, the mill makes 292 hp (217 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque. The engine makes 300 hp (223 kW) and 264 lb-ft (357 Nm) of torque in the GT and SXT AWD.

The 2020 model year also sees the Charger’s color palette expanded with three new options, bringing the total to 12. The new colors, all of which have late availability, are Frostbite, Hellraisin and Sinamon Stick.
