Non Daytona Charger Hellcat Widebody models reaching dealers

by Patrick Rall on

We have received a few emails asking whether we knew if the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody models were being delivered without the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition package. Today we have positive confirmation that the “basic” Hellcat Chargers with the now-standard widebody package have begun reaching dealerships in the United States.

Earlier today, we spoke with Butch Hora, SRT Rep/Manager of Hall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He confirmed that earlier today, their first 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody without the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition package arrived at their dealership. Their first non-Daytona was ordered back in mid-November, so it took roughly two months for this new model to arrive from the plant in Canada.

You may recognize Hora’s name, as he was the dealership representative who provided some American arrival information for the Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition cars back in December. Hall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram sold four examples of that limited edition model and they are likely to sell a great many non-Daytona Hellcat Chargers with the new widebody design in the coming months.

The widebody version of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat arrives after loads of demand from the modern Mopar community for some sport sedan upgrades. In addition to the widebody design, the Daytona package added 10 horsepower, but consumers are still really hoping for a Redeye version with 797 horsepower.

In the meantime, I have a crisp Lincoln that says that the 2021 Hellcat Charger comes with 717 horsepower in standard form. In the meantime, I expect to see people buying up the wider sedan even with “only” 707 horsepower.

Note: The Charger shown here is a test car, not a customer vehicle.
