2020 Dodge Challenger Pricing Changes: Some Up, Some Down
There have been no major changes to the Dodge Challenger lineup for 2020, so it should come as little surprise that there are no major pricing changes. Of course, the 50th Anniversary Edition package is new, but if you exclude that, the Challenger is relatively unchanged between 2019 and 2020. However, as the Build and Price feature on the Dodge website has been updated to include the 2020 model year, there are some small changes across the lineup.
You can build your 2020 Dodge Challenger on the official website, but if you aren’t that interested in the fine details, here is a look at the basic pricing changes for the new model year. For the sake of easy organization, we will look at the pricing in groups based on the engine. Keep in mind that these pricing changes may come with adjustments to the standard equipment list, so if you are shopping for a new Challenger right now, do your homework and make sure that the car that you want has the features that you want.
It should be noted that the 50th Anniversary Edition package is not yet available on the website, but since we know how much that package costs for the various models, we will mention the price of those cars as well. None of these prices include destination fees, but they do include Gas Guzzler Tax, when applicable.
2020 Challenger V6 Models
First up, we have the 2020 Dodge Challenger models that are powered by the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6. This includes the SXT, SXT AWD, GT and GT AWD models, all of which come standard with the 8-speed automatic transmission.
For 2020, the Challenger SXT and SXT AWD models both drop in price. The entry-level SXT drops by $100 to $27,995 while the SXT AWD drops by $150 to $30,995. As for the more heavily appointed GT, it climbs in price by $350 to $30,995 while the GT AWD is up $300 to 33,995.
Naturally Aspirated Hemi Challengers
Next up, we have those 2020 Dodge Challengers that are powered by one of the two naturally aspirated Hemi V8 engine. This includes the R/T with the 5.7-liter mill and the R/T Scat Pack with the 6.4-liter engine. Each of these models include a Shaker and T/A option, while the Scat Pack also has the widebody package. All of these prices include the standard 6-speed manual transmission. The 8-speed automatic costs $1,595 for 2020, unchanged from 2019.
The 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 5.7-liter Hemi starts at $34,595, up $50 from 2019. Both the Shaker and T/A packages are $95 more in 2020, so the R/T Shaker and R/T-based T/A are each $145 more for the new model year.
The 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack with the 392-cubic inch Hemi starts at $39,995, down $250 from 2019. The 2020 Scat Pack Widebody starts at $45,995, down $350 from the previous model year. The R/T Scat Pack is available with the Shaker package and the T/A package, which are both up $95. With the decline in basic Scat Pack pricing, the 2020 Challenger Scat Pack Shaker and Scat Pack T/A each start $155 lower than 2019.
The R/T Scat Pack is also available with the 1320 package, but the price of that $3,995 option is unchanged for the new model year, so with the drop in Scat Pack pricing, the drag strip-ready 1320 models are $250 less than they were for 2019.
Finally, we have the 2020 Dodge Challenger models that are powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi. This includes the basic Hellcat, the Hellcat Redeye and their widebody variants.
The 717-horsepower 2020 Challenger SRT Hellcat models are both down $250, with the standard-width car starting at $60,695 while the widebody model starts at $66,695. The Hellcat models don’t have any equipment packages like Shaker or T/A, but they do come with the Plus Package, which is up $200 for 2020.
The 797-horsepower 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye models are both up $350 for the new model year. The standard-width car starts at $72,295 and the widebody starts at $78,295. Keep in mind that the 8-speed automatic is standard with the Redeye, but the Plus Package costs $200 more for the Redeye in 2020 as well.

50th Anniversary Pricing
The 50th Anniversary Edition package is not yet included on the Dodge.com configurator for the 2020 Challenger, but we know the package pricing and we know the basic model pricing, so we can calculate the rough pricing of the limited edition models.
The 50th Anniversary Edition package costs $4,995 for the GT, $5,495 and $5,995 for the R/T Scat Pack Shaker and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody Shaker.
The 2020 Dodge Challenger GT starts at $32,490, including destination, so when you add on the $4,995 package price of the 50th Anniversary Edition, you get a price of $37,485.
The R/T Shaker with destination starts at $38,685, so when you add the $5,495 price of the Anniversary package, you get a price of $44,180.
The 2020 Challenger Scat Pack Shaker starts at $44,085 with Gas Guzzler Tax and destination fees, so when you add the $5,995 for the 50th package, this anniversary edition model starts at $50,080.
Finally, the R/T Scat Pack Widebody is not currently available with the Shaker hood package. The 50th Anniversary Edition is the first model to combine the Shaker and Widebody packages, but we know that the Shaker package adds $2,595 to the other 2020 Challengers. The Scat Pack Widebody with Gas Guzzler Tax and destination starts at $47,490, so if the Shaker package costs $2,595 for that model as well, pricing of the Scat Pack Widebody Shaker would start around $50,085. When you tack on the anniversary package, you get a price of $56,080.
