Every model year, Dodge changes up the lineup a little more. For 2020, we’re down to nine trims, but most of them are just duplicates with add-ons or a better engine. In 2020, we have the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, R/T Scat Pack Widebody, SRT Hellcat, SRT Hellcat Widebody, SRT Hellcat Redeye, and the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody. The SXT and GT trims are the only vehicles that can opt-in for an all-wheel drive train (AWD) whereas the rest of the lineup is stuck with rear-wheel drive (RWD). Consumers will also only find a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission as the standard option on the SXT and GT, with a six-speed manual as the standard option on all other trims, with the option to upgrade to automatic.
Found under the hood of the SXT and GT trims is the popular 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, optimized with variable valve timing (VVT), and able to generate up to 303 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. Only the Dodge Challenger R/T is powered by the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine, optimized with VVT, and able to generate up to 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Only the R/T trim can also come equipped with the same engine but with a multi-displacement system (MDS) as well to help conserve fuel when cruising.
The 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack (with or without Widebody) comes equipped with the 392 cubic-inch V8 SRT HEMI engine, able to produce up to 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, and also with the option of getting and MDS for better fuel efficiency. Under the hood of the SRT Hellcat and SRT Hellcat Widebody, consumers will find the famous Supercharged HEMI V8 SRT engine, upgraded for 2020, now able to produce 717 horsepower and 656 lb-ft of torque. For 2020, the SRT Hellcat Redeye returns, with and without a Widebody option, and equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 Supercharged Redeye engine, able to generate up to 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque.
Many of the usual standard features show up for 2020, including automatic projector headlamps and LED split tail lamps, an auto-dimming mirror, heated exterior mirrors, and solar control glass. The SRT trims are the only ones to come with illuminated air-catcher headlamps to feed even more air into the superchargers in front of the engines. Depending on the trim, the respective badge can be found on the body, such as an “R/T” badge and “HEMI” fender/hood badge. Consumers will also have various wheel sizes and styles depending on the trim, ranging from 18-inch to 20-inch wheels.
Interior features that return include a 60/40 split-folding rear seat for storage configurations, a power 6-way adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped shift knob, and dual-zone automatic temperature control. Convenient features like heated front seats and a heated steering wheel can be found in trims including and past the R/T Scat Pack. Cloth upholstery is the standard, but leather can be found standard or as an option on all trims.
For the 2020 Dodge Challenger SXT, GT, and R/T trims, the standard setup is a six-speaker system with Uconnect 4 on a 7-inch touchscreen. The rest of the lineup comes standard with Uconnect 4C on an 8.4-inch touchscreen and a premium six-speaker system with subwoofer. All trims can upgrade to Uconnect 4C NAV, or with navigation, on an 8.4-inch touchscreen. All trims past the base can also upgrade to an 18-premium speaker system with a subwoofer. All trims come with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto, Bluetooth integrated voice command, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. All trims past the R/T come with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, whereas this is an optional upgrade on the SXT, GT, and R/T trims
