Will there be such thing as a Dodge Charger SRT Widebody Redeye? With the upcoming Dodge Charger Widebody becoming a real thing, stories have come out about the latest production version carrying the monstrous, supercharged 6.2-Liter V8 engine. The same 797 horsepower engine that is carried in the current 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye could very well be in the all-new Dodge Charger Widebody. According to Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman without indicating any particular sources for the report. He thinks a potential introduction will be showcased at none other than the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show running from November 22nd through December 1st, 2019. Let’s get into the speculation about this new vehicle being made by Dodge and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

What Owners Gain With the Widebody

The debut of the 2019 Dodge Charger Widebody Concept happened in March 2019 at the SoCal LX Spring Fest. The Widebody provides drivers with wider fenders and a revised front end with bigger inlets in the fascia. The rear has a large trunk spoiler and narrow openings behind the rear black wheels with five sets of dual spokes. It’s a sharper version of the Charger.

The Dodge Widebody Charger gains the advantage of additional performance modifications thanks to the widebody tires, providing extra grip on turns. Driving is improved with the Dodge Charger Widebody enhanced handling. Anticipate a revamped suspension, retuned steering, and large 20-inch wheels with sticky rubber to be amongst the improvements for the Dodge Charger Widebody. These are only some of the perks expected to be given for the Widebody.

Will the Widebody Be As Fast as the SRT Hellcat Redeye?

Given their closeness, the sturdier Charger might be able to hang with the SRT Hellcat Redeye. They would likely have comparable performance specs as the 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is already close to the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat in terms of performance. The major difference between both is the fact the Challenger is a coupe, versus the Charger being a sedan. The remarkable Hellcat Redeye can hit 60 miles per hour in only 3.4 seconds and runs a top speed of 203 mph. FCA ensured this vehicle would be wicked fast, as the quarter-mile for the Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye was complete 10.8 seconds at 131 mph. Expect around the same for the Widebody Charger on its way.

For those who are not sure if the Hellcat Redeye 6.2-Liter V8 engine will end up in the upcoming Widebody Charger, a video emerged in April 2019 showing Dodge creating a commercial or promotional video. Of course, we are waiting for the announcement of this fantastic muscle car. For those that can’t wait for that, get your hands on the latest Dodge muscle cars today.
