2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Concept Walkaround
Not too long ago, Dodge announced that they were going to add a widebody package, similar to that of the Dodge Challenger, to the next Dodge Charger model year. After the Widebody package option expanded across different Dodge Challenger trims for the 2019 model year, including both SRT Hellcat trims and the R/T Scat Pack, it was only a matter of time before Dodge shared the glory with the sibling of the Challenger. Dodge stated that if this were to come to fruition, the Widebody package option would appear on the 2020 Dodge Charger. Now going literal, Dodge recently mentioned a new Charger concept would soon debut, and a vehicle walk around video recently surfaced on the internet.
The Widebody on the Charger
If unfamiliar with the Widebody appearance package, think of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Although it didn’t last long, the Dodge SRT Demon had a signature and very aggressive look. It had a wide stance, larger fender flares, and air grabber hood, and large wheels. As mentioned, the 2019 Dodge Challenger brought the Widebody package back and extended the option over to both SRT Hellcat trims for the Dodge Challenger and R/T Scat Pack. It gives a Dodge vehicle the look of an SRT Demon without the supercharged 797 horsepower engine under the hood.
Included in the package are 20-inch “Devil’s Rim” aluminum wheels, extended fender flares that are added to the body, a blacked-out rear lip spoiler, and a scalloped hood. Consumers who plan to hit the raceway may want to opt-in for the optional Pirelli P Zero summer tires for extra grip. Based on the walk around video from Mopar Insiders, it would seem the Dodge Charger is definitely getting these additions and more.

Now, this is looking pretty incredible. Already popular with its all-wheel drive option (AWD), the Dodge Charger always had a bold stance. Not many four-door sedans could compare, and that stance is one of the reasons many would consider the Charger a muscle car rather than a sedan. Well, add on the Widebody appearance package, and the Charger gets a much broader look with aggressive rims and fender flares making an impact. These additions and the hood aren’t the only appearance changes for the concept.
The front and rear fascias are definitely different this time around, with the front sporting an extra space for air intake between the grille and the bottom lip, making a total of four spots where air can be fed into the engine for more horsepower. The spoiler in the rear is new and protrudes outwards a little more, and new side sills have been added with what seems like a ton of SRT graphics.
Some call this Dodge camouflage to keep further body developments hidden, but honestly, we wouldn’t mind driving around in a Dodge Charger Widebody with all those graphics. Far from an eyesore, the colors and contrast work really well, and isn’t Dodge all about adding cool racing graphics and decals to signify its legacy? It all looks pretty cool, and the video below contains the full walk around, courtesy of video contributor “R/T Life”.
How’s it look? Keep in mind, this is a concept, and a lot can change between what we’re seeing and the production model in 2020. Only time will tell. Join the discussion on Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram social media.
