2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Pricing Speculation
Over the past few months, FCA has shown off the 2020 Dodge Charger in three different trim levels, all of which feature the new widebody package. At first, we saw the Scat Pack along with the “standard” Hellcat and more recently, we met the new Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, which features 10 more horsepower than the non-Daytona Hellcat.
While we have gotten all of the key details about each of these widebody Chargers, we haven’t gotten pricing for any of the 2020 Dodge sport sedans, and that has led to a great many questions from readers. After having so many people ask, I have put together my thoughts on what we might see in terms of pricing for the 2020 Dodge Charger in Scat Pack Widebody, Hellcat and Hellcat Daytona form.
2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Package Pricing
Since there is no pricing on the 2020 Dodge Charger or Challenger, I will based my speculation on the 2019 models. The widebody package is an option on the Challenger Scat Pack, Hellcat and Redeye, and for each of those trim levels, the wider factory stance adds $6,000 to the bottom line.
Like the Challenger, the Charger widebody package includes wider wheels and Pirelli tires, unique bodywork around the wheel openings, and a uniquely-tuned steering and suspension setup. The Challenger also comes with a wider chin spoiler in its $6,000 package, but the Charger widebody package also has uniquely-flared front and rear fascias.
In other words, the widebody package for the Charger has more to it, so it could cost more than the $6,000 MSRP of the Challenger widebody package, but I cannot see the Charger package costing less than the similar setup for the coupe.
2020 Dodge Charger MSRP
As you may know, the widebody design is standard for the 2020 Charger Hellcat, but for the Scat Pack, I expect the option to cost $6,000. As for the Hellcat, I expect to see the base price rise by roughly that same amount.
The 2019 Hellcat Charger starts at $68,990 when you factor in Gas Guzzler Tax and Destination fees, and based on the information provided thus far, it looks as though the supercharged sedan will come with all of the same standard features in 2020. This includes a premium infotainment system and heated, cooled leather seats, so it seems unlikely that the base price of the Hellcat will drop before factoring in the widebody package.
If the 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat price is basically the 2019 pricing plus the $6,000 widebody kit, it will start around $75,000.
As for the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition, it is predominantly a simple appearance package with uniquely-colored wheels, stripes and interior colors, along with a 10-horsepower gain that comes from an increased engine RPM limit. It is limited to just 501 units, but with relatively few components leading to a higher price, I expect that the Daytona package will only add around $2,000 to the bottom line, leading to a starting price around $77,000.
Again, this is all purely speculation based on current pricing, but unless Dodge takes a very different pricing approach to the widebody Charger, the numbers above should be in the ballpark of the actual pricing when it is announced later this year.
