Dodge Charger Widebody Concept Looks Really Good

There’s a Dodge Challenger Widebody, and now there appears to be a Charger Widebody.


The Dodge Charger Widebody pictured above was unveiled at Spring Fest 14, a gathering of Chrysler LX models. Although Dodge is calling it a concept, it clearly looks ready for production.

Like the Challenger Widebody, the Dodge Charger Widebody will have flared wheel arches, wider and massive 305-width tires for improved grip and stability, and a more aggressive look overall. We loved the Challenger Widebody when we reviewed it, and we can’t imagine the Charger variant would be any less competent.

Back in February, Mopar Insiders reported that the new Dodge Charger Widebody would be offered in both R/T Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat versions. A 6.4-liter HEMI V8 sending 485 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque will power the car according to early reports, but we will have to wait for the 797-horsepower monster found in the Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Nothing is confirmed yet in terms of powertrains. As a matter of fact, Dodge hasn’t released too much info the Charger Widebody overall. Like the Challenger version, it should be faster around a track than a narrow Charger, and it will likely add about $10,000 to the cost of a regular model.

If Dodge does bring the Charger Widebody to market, expect it to go on sale sometime in summer or fall.
