video dodge teases what could be the widebody charger srt

Dodge released a teaser video this morning of a Charger SRT, shrouded by a sheet flapping in the wind. Though covered, the visible cues point to the previously-spied widebody Charger. The video is titled, “Something big is coming…”, so they’re not exactly leaving much to the imagination.

The front bumper looks to ready depart from the current SRT Charger design by incorporating a snout akin to that found on the SRT Durango. The lower outer air inlets grow considerably larger and more aggressive, as well.

It’s pretty cool how they made the sheet give enough away to be interesting. They must’ve had the engine on with the fan running to draw the sheet in towards the grille, so that it would highlight the shape of the revised bumper.

As the camera pans around, the sheet shapes nicely around what appears to be a significantly widened fender — though only for a millisecond. If the formula follows that of the Challenger SRT widebody, we can expect those fenders to be covering a set of 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zeros on 20 x 11-inch forged “Devil’s Rim” alloys.

Mopar Insiders previously claimed the vehicle would debut at the 2019 Woodward Dream Cruise and go on sale as a 2020 model-year vehicle. Additional rumors suggest a fall launch. As the teaser car is sporting an SRT badge, it can be assumed that it is fitted with the 707 hp Hellcat supercharged Hemi V8, if not the higher-output 797 hp Redeye-spec engine. A less-powerful — but inevitably lighter — 6.4L Scat Pack variant is also said to be in the works.

Who doesn’t love all the performance of a coupe with the added the practicality of a sedan?

  • Lou_BC The dealbreaker for me is the $80k starting price in Canada.
  • Zipper69 The Grenadier was designed ground up to be a "better Land Rover" and by most press accounts comes close.What little we know about the Quartermaster it's clear that it's intended for serious off road work without additional aftermarket fettling needed.The price is clearly a barrier, but IF it's the real deal, it will have a slot in the market.
  • Michael Charging more for less. Hmmmm
  • FreedMike Meanwhile, over at Nissan, you can get a perfectly nice, well equipped Frontier four-door that has a V-6, 4wd, and is capable of all the "truck stuff" you could ever want for $36,000. And unlike the "pay over sticker or go f**k yourself" nonsense you get at the Toyota place, the Nissan store will probably happily make you a nice deal.
