Pictures of what appears to be a loosely camouflaged Dodge Charger with the long-awaited widebody design surfaced on social media over the weekend, along with a graphic that appears to come from an FCA or supplier presentation detailing the changes of the widened sport sedan.


We discussed the rumors of a widebody Charger debuting at the upcoming Spring Festival of LXs in Southern California last week, with the show’s flyers teasing a debut of some sort supporting those rumors.

Needless to say, these pictures go a long way in verifying that the Dodge Charger Widebody is coming and with the odd décor, it seems likely that these cars could be wearing a simple camouflage that promotes the SRT line – perfect for a unique debut at a massive enthusiast event.

Spy Shots

First up, we have a trio of spy shots of what appears to be a Dodge Charger SRT Widebody, presumably a Hellcat. Two of the pictures were posted online by the Mopar__Addicts Instagram account while the other was posted to social media by the Instagrammer Sinister_Lifestyle .


These pictures are fairly poor quality, but there is no question that there are at least two widebody Chargers with this unusual SRT wrap. Also, while we don’t know where these pictures were taken, we can see two Challengers in the background, so this is likely an FCA facility or a third party company that is doing some supporting work on the vehicles.

Slideshow Graphic

The fourth image that surfaced on social media this weekend is the graphic below that appears to have come from an information presentation. It could be from FCA or it could be from a supplier that is providing parts, but in any case, it reveals the key details of the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. We do not know the original source of this image as it just seemed to turn up in a bunch of Facebook groups, so it could be fake, but it certainly looks legit.


There are no real surprises in the details, as the wider Charger is getting the same basic changes as the widebody Challenger. This includes the flares, new front and rear fascias, new side sills running between the flares and a set of 20 by 11-inch wheels on the outside, while electronic power steering and a uniquely-tuned suspension system are also part of the package. The electronic steering and suspension tuning are also features of the Challenger, both of which help make the most of the 305 rubber at all four corners. Again, this information might not be real, but those pictures from two different Instagram account are unmistakable.


We still don’t know for sure if the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody will debut at SpringFest14 and if it doesn’t debut in Cali this weekend, we aren’t sure when it will finally be introduced, but the fact that these cars are somewhere with enough public access that pictures were taken is a good sign that the formal debut can’t be far away.

Update: We reached out to FCA for comment on these pictures and a Dodge spokesperson provided the following information:

"We are taking a Charger design concept to Spring Fest to gauge feedback from the huge Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300 enthusiast base that attends the California event each year. "

Based on that, we are inclined to believe that this Charger design study will be the widebody car shown here.
