2019-2020 Dodge Charger: Everything You Need to Know

2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody

Oh, the Dodge Charger. The sedan field continues to shrink as everyone seems to want SUVs, and that makes me sad because I really don’t want to lose cars like this. Not only is the Charger a sedan, it’s a large one with big engines and rear-wheel drive. It’s the exception to the exception to the rule. But as competitors have gone away, the Charger has persisted for one big reason: It’s damn fun.

Choosing between 2019 and 2020 versions of the Charger? We got you covered. The 2019 model brought with it the requisite special editions and colors that Dodge loves to throw out each year, but the bigger changes come for 2020 to the Charger’s most aggressive models. The Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat variants both get the same Widebody treatment that Dodge gave to the Challenger and the effect is pronounced.

I already preferred the Charger to the Challenger since it’s a more stable platform, and the Widebody versions take it up another level. It’s more comfortable and composed on the road, but it also has more grip and a higher performance ceiling on the track. And the Widebody Chargers aren’t just blisteringly fast in a straight line, either — they’ve learned how to turn with great proficiency, and whether there’s 485 horsepower under the hood (Scat Pack) or 707 (holy Hellcat), it’s a rocking good time.

The Charger is offered with several different V-6 and V-8 engine options and comes with standard RWD. The 2020 Charger GT will also be offered with all-wheel drive for the first time, again echoing an addition to the Challenger.
