The Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody is a full-figured sports sedan



Muscle sedan gains puffed up wheel arches, wider wheels, along with suspension and other design changes.

The four-door follows the same formula as the Challenger Widebody introduced in 2018 and will be offered in the Hellcat and Scat Pack trim levels when it goes on sale later this year. As on the two-door muscle auto, the new package adds 3.5 inches of width to Dodge's four-door sedan, where it's now standard on the 707-hp SRT Hellcat and available on the 485-hp Scat Pack.

Set to be entered into the Exhibition class, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody concept will be driven by Pikes Peak veteran Randy Pobst.

As another potential blow to Dominican tourism, Delta announced on Tuesday it will allow passengers to re-book at no extra charge. In response to the ongoing events, a Dominican Republic official attempted to alleviate concerns during a press conference.

The new Charger uses a supercharged 6.2-litre Hemi Hellcat V8, making 707 horsepower and 650 lb. -ft. of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The company said the Hellcat Widebody runs from zero to 96 km/h in 3.6 seconds; and has a quarter-mile elapsed time of 10.96 seconds. The Charger Hellcat also misses out on the more powerful 535kW/889Nm Hellcat and 594kW/959Nm Hellcat Redeye engines available in the Challenger.

Furthermore, the Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody gets increased front spring rates, which are 32-percent stiffer than the outgoing model, larger sway bars both front and rear, and the aforementioned retuned shocks with have stiffer springs and revised valving. Those are clad in 305/35Z20 Pirelli tires with Brembo six-piston front calipers. The Hellcat adds a race cooldown feature, where the radiator fan and intercooler pump are kept running after the engine is shut off to keep things as chill as possible.
