All 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcats will feature the Widebody treatment.

The Widebody makeover consists of redesigned fascias, integrated fender flares, side sills and rear spoiler.

It all results in 3.5 inches of additional width compared to the standard Charger sedan body.

Besides yielding a more menacing appearance, the wider sheetmetal allows for the installation of wider wheels and tires requiring some tinkering of the suspension to up handling prowess.

A new wheel and tire package mean 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.

Another fresh wrinkle for 2020 is a new multi-mode electric power steering system in place of the previous full-hydraulic setup.

With the chassis revisions and meatier rubber, SRT says the Hellcat is capable of pulling .96 g on the skidpad.

Brake performance is also up from the six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo calipers. While the outgoing Hellcat needed 111 feet to stop from 60 mph, the 2020 edition comes to a halt in 107 feet.

Being a Hellcat, power comes from a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 making 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque.
