Dodge Teases ‘Something Big’ In The Charger Widebody – But Could It Be A Hellcat Redeye?

A 797 horsepower Charger would be pretty sweet

Come on, we know what’s hiding under that sheet.

Dodge has something up its sleeve or under its sheet, as it were and it could be a highly-anticipated Widebody. Now, we’ve already had Widebody versions of the Challenger coupe, so it’s only natural to see its four-door cousin emerge soon after. Adding some distinctive visual flair to the mix would make the Charger particularly the SRT Hellcat model stand out from its rivals.

We have already seen a Charger Widebody concept, so this explanation makes the most sense at the moment.

Speaking of flair, there’s also a chance this could be a Charger Hellcat Redeye model. That would still bring in the Widebody, but also up the power on the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 found in the standard Charger Hellcat. That means 797 horsepower and 707 lb-ft of torque, based on the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, further cementing its reputation as one of the most powerful four-door cars around. The Challenger Hellcat Redeye sprints from 0-60 in a claimed 3.4 seconds, so a Charger Hellcat Redeye should put up similar numbers.

Either way, FCA is widening the Dodge Charger’s portfolio with a new model of some sort. A Widebody Charger would provide visual improvements, for sure. We’d also like to see some performance and handling improvements though, so there’s always a chance there could be something bigger hiding under that sheet.

Stay tuned to for more updates from Dodge and the rest of FCA coming very soon!
