Dodge Charger Is Getting a Facelift for 2020
Over the past few years, the Dodge Charger has served as the best-selling large sedan sold in the United States. A Chevy or Ford model may have in the past tried to speed ahead of the Charger, but as the popularity of those faded, the Charger became the clear leader in sales. Besides outselling the other large sedans sold in the United States, the Dodge Charger is also the best-selling rear-drive sedan, beating every performance sedan.
With that being said, the 2020 Dodge Charger is getting a rewarding makeover for the model year. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is claiming that the all-new 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody will be the “most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world.” It’s believed that the Hemi-engine Hellcat will be able to reach 60mph in 3.6 seconds and have a top speed of 196 mph. This car packs a punch with a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 producing 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission is also standard.
For the new model year, Charger Dodge adds the two-door Challenger’s Widebody package as an option for the R/T Scat Pack model and standard for the Hellcat. If you’re interested in this body option, you might want to head into Ray CDJR to get more information before this body disappears. The Widebody includes a large fender that adds about 3.5 inches of width. Under the fender, you’ll see the same 20 by 11-inch wheels. The Charger also gets new front and rear fascias. New for the 2020-year model, engineers added six-piston Brembo brakes with two-piece rotors and a Hellcat-specific three-mode suspension system that uses Bilstein adaptive shocks.
The price(s) for this new Dodge has yet to be announced, but dealers will be able to order the new Charger in the fall and deliveries are scheduled to start early next year!
Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger cars for FCA in North America said that 40,000 people have bought the Dodge Charger this year and would all agree that this isn’t just a car. “The Charger’s reach extends beyond body-style practicalities..”
