2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Configurator Comes Online
Since we first started talking about the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody back in June, we have been bombarded with questions on pricing. The first bits of pricing surfaced back in September and last week, it was discovered that the majority of the information was available on Dodge.com. Mind you, the 2020 Charger pricing isn’t easily available, as the link to access the information is not yet live, but by changing some coding, the individual web pages are on the site.
Now, before getting into the details, we should point out that when information is available on a website without a direct link, it can be “placeholder information”, meaning that it might not be official and 100% accurate. In other words, when the configurator tool has been fully populated with pictures and such, there could be some differences in the pricing numbers, but what we have so far will provide prospective buyers with an idea of what their widebody supercharged Charger will cost.
2020 Dodge Charger Build and Price
When you first enter the 2020 Dodge Charger Build and Price page, you are met by the option to pick from the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, R/T Scat Pack Widebody and SRT Hellcat Widebody. For today’s discussion, we are focusing on the SRT Hellcat Widebody, but as you will see when you visit the website, there are no pictures of the various models.
When you pick the option to build a 2020 Charger Hellcat, you are taken to the next page which would normally have an image of the car that you can rotate on the left, while the right side of the page has graphics of the available exterior colors, wheels and other options. In the case of this preliminary page setup, there are no images at all, but there is plenty of pricing.
The first options that you can select from for the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody pertain to the exterior appearance, including the body color, the available dual stripe packages and the available black painted body parts. As is the case for the 2019 model year, the dual stripe packages all cost $995, the full black satin paint package (hood, roof and trunk) costs $3,495 and the black satin painted hood costs $1,995, while the roof alone costs $1,500.
Next, you can pick from three wheel options, all of which are 20 inches tall by 11 inches wide, with the prices of the upgraded wheels sitting at $1,095 and $1,295. These prices are up a bit from 2019, but these wheels are wider than those wheels, so it makes sense that they cost more. Also, you can pick from the same brake caliper color options as 2019, with red being standard while black, gunmetal and orange are optional, but the price is up from $495 to $595 for the new model year.
On the inside, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody options are a bit less complete, but we can still piece together some pricing details. The Harman Kardon Audio Group is still $1,795, the power sunroof is still $1,995, red seat belts are still $395 and the Navigation and Travel Group is still $995. The Alcantara Package rises from $695 to $995 for the new model year while the new Carbon/Suede Interior Package has a price of $1,595.
Pricing for the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition is not yet available on the website.
Maxed Out Pricing
Based on what is currently available on Dodge.com, a “fully loaded” 2020 Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody would come equipped with the full black satin graphics package, the “Warp Speed” Granite wheels, upgraded-color Brembo brake calipers, 3-season tires, the Harman sound system, the power sunroof, the cargo net, the red seat belts, the Navigation & Travel Group, the Carbon/Suede Interior Package, the Power Convenience Group and the engine block heater.
When you pile on all of those options, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody has an MSRP of $86,220. Again, that could change once the configurator tool on Dodge.com has been finalized, but right now, if you are planning to buy a loaded 2020 Charger Hellcat, expect to pay somewhere in the high-$80k range.
