The standard tire is a Pirelli P Zero Nero All-Season, but a stickier three-season Pirelli P Zero is available.A new wheel and tire package means engineers had to go through the Hellcat’s suspension bringing new tuning for the three-mode Bilstein adaptive dampers, 32% stiffer front springs, and larger antiroll bars to the party.

In addition to the more in-your-face appearance, the Widebody Package adds wider 20-inch by 11-inch wheels in place of the Scat Pack’s standard 20-inch by 9-inch examples. Those are wrapped with bigger and stickier Pirelli all-season performance rubber, but more aggressive three-season tires are options. The wheels cover six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo brake calipers biting down on larger rotors shared with the SRT Hellcat. Compared to the non-Widebody Scat Pack that stops from 60 mph in 110 feet, the Widebody does it in 107 feet. Post a comment Enlarge ImageThe Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack will be looking a little bit wider for 2020. Dodge Dodge has officially confirmed that the Widebody treatment is coming to the Charger for the 2020 model year. Like its Challenger two-door coupe sibling, the Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack models will now sport some wider hips along with sharper reflexes. The new model development doesn’t come as much of a surprise, having been teased as a design concept earlier this year. That said, it doesn’t mean that this isn’t a very welcome development.Dodge’s Widebody rework on the Charger consists of redesigned fascias, integrated fender flares, side sills and a new rear spoiler. It all results in 3.5 inches of additional width compared to the standard Charger body. Besides yielding a more menacing appearance, the wider sheetmetal allows for the installation of wider wheels and tires, which in turn required rejiggering the suspension to up handling prowess. While all 2020 Charger Hellcats will be fitted with the broader bodywork, the Widebody treatment will be an option on the 2020 Charger Scat Pack. 60 Photos Share your voice 56 Photos Tags 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack Widebody: Angrier sedans Now playing: Watch this: 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody: More body and grip Dodge Dodge
