Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has always looked to push the boundaries with their Dodge brand. In the latest expansion of their Dodge muscle car line-up, that’s precisely what they will do when the new 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody debut. Labeled by FCA as the Fastest Mass-produced Sedan in the world, the best part of the new Charger entries is they will satisfy what customers wanted. Many have clamored for a widebody for the Dodge Charger, the sedan version of the famous Dodge Challenger, to gain a widebody since it had been neglected for the past two years. 

Start Your Widebody Engines!

Debuting with the 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody, back-to-back years of the widebody frame have made fans of the tighter handling and broader frame. Gaining a better grip on the track and holding turns easier than before helped the SRT Hellcat Widebody hit faster times on the track. Plus, the look of this vehicle is stunning. A massive beast in the wings, waiting for a driver to test out the pure power and performance that is offered with every measure while driving. All 707 horsepower is used to promoted high-octane thrills while driving anywhere thanks to the impressive 6.2-Liter supercharged V8 engine. Drivers will enjoy the roar of hitting 0-60 mpg in just 3.6 seconds and its quarter-mile clip of a mere 10.96 seconds. 

Not Just Fast, But Quite the Looker

The 2020 Dodge Challenger is immaculate in appearance with its flush design that draws attention thanks to its bold look. The Charger Widebody added 3.5-inches for both the front and rear tires. An oversized fender flare made Dodge opt for new Pirelli rubber tires that stretch to 305 widths at each corner. Brembo 6-piston front calipers with a two-piece brake rotor was added to the suspension, which is supplied with three damping modes; Strip, Street, and Road Course. For those who love to race, Dodge added new ways to bolster performance. A new Race Cooldown option that allows the driver to protect their vehicle has been added. 

“Race Cooldown keeps cooling the supercharger/charge air cooler after the engine is shut off by running the intercooler pump and radiator fan.” according to a statement by Dodge. 

More 2020 Dodge Charger Widebody Facts

First added to the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody and Scat Pack Widebody will have the Launch Assist and Launch Control features. Drivers will be able to easily access a switch on the dashboard that will control tire slip when moving the vehicle to provide straight-line acceleration and keep the wheel hop limited as muscle car can modify the engine torque to regain full grip. The widebody is not only faster but has better braking to allow it to stop shorter. The stopping distance is actually four feet shorter at 107 feet when stopping at 60 mph. We can’t wait to get our hands on this remarkable muscle! For drivers that want to experience the rush of driving a Dodge muscle car, we can help today!

For those who are more excited to jump into their muscle car than anything else or want to spring into a new ride that is sleek and exhilarating, consider Dodge as the choice. Drivers everywhere wish to embrace their car as purchasing a vehicle is one of the most significant investments anyone can make. Dodge muscle cars are the end game for all things fast and for a good reason. Begin the escape with a new Challenger, offering many trims and different levels of excellence. The high-end 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye is beyond detailed with an unrivaled 790 horsepower from the 6.2-Liter HEMI V8  and a dual hood air intake. Go from 0-60 in only 3.4 seconds! How is this possible?

Dodge Perfects Their Launch Control

Dodge improved their Launch Control feature with the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. At the time the since retired muscle car was the most powerful production vehicle on the market, a title now held by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. Consider the power offered by the 650 lb-ft of torque and ability to soar past 200 mph effortlessly, the high-end Challenger is not for the faint of heart. How is that possible? Line Lock was made to engage the front breaks, but not the rear wheels so the vehicle can build up speed without any burnout. However, drivers don’t need a high-end Challenger to enjoy one of the best features made by Dodge. The Launch Control feature enables a driver to hold their Dodge muscle car anywhere from five to up to 10 seconds for the optimal launch with a consistently straight line dispatch. With so many features customizable, luckily this is one feature that comes standard for the 2019 Dodge Challenger.

Things To Consider When Shopping For a Challenger

The 2019 Challenger comes in seven significant trims ranging from the SXT, GT, R/T, R/T 392, SRT Hellcat and the SRT Hellcat Redeye. Only the SXT and GT have a V6 engine, but the rest gain a V8 engine. Unique styling differences and performance measures are what separate each trim and variations. The SRT Hellcat also carries a dual-snorkel feature that pushes up the horsepower to 717 horsepower, 10 more horsepower than the previous model year. The SRT Hellcat Redeye is extremely detailed and even the Hellcat logo carries a “Redeye” to showcase the tremendous attention to every feature about this fantastic muscle car.

Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

Internet Is a Frenzy on Yellow Splitter Guards on Dodge Muscle Cars

Splitter Miami Lakes Automall

Every now and then, certain vehicles catch the attention of the public and gain serious traction. We’ve noticed one particular item of interest for buyers and readers when it comes to our Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger models. For those who are buying a new Dodge muscle car, we want to inform our customers we do, in fact, leave the yellow splitter guards on. An eyesore to true motorheads, but something appealing to quite a few car buyers, we have all the facts on both sides. For the pros and cons of the splitter guards, let’s go over them and share the truth behind a subject that has become a trending topic lately.

Dodge Splitter Guards?

First off, what is a splitter guard? Dodge places protective yellow splitter guards on vehicles that are shipped out directly from the factory onto large 18-wheelers to be delivered at dealerships across the United States. At Miami Lakes Automall, we actually leave the splitter guards on as they are protecting the splitter and help keep the vehicle safe when being loaded and transported. We believe the customer has the choice to take them off or leave them on, based on their preference. The Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger will have them, for those curious.

Is It Safe to Keep a Splitter Guard On?

100% safe. Splitter guards are made to help protect the vehicle they are attached to. Removing them is easy, but keep in mind, while some see them as a decorative fashion piece, others don’t. However, one thing that is agreed upon from both sides is they are protective and help keep from any scrapes hitting on the side. Safety is not the question when it comes to splitter guards. It’s purely a matter of automotive taste.

Do Splitter Guards Come In Other Colors?

No. Unfortunately, there is only one color for the splitter guards. Yellow is the color of caution as the splitter guards take care of our vehicles when they are brought onto our lot. We would want to have the vehicle look as polished and protected as possible. Maybe one day there might be other colors, but for now, the answer is no. Splitter guards are sold on eBay for close to $100, which is something to keep in mind.

Why Leave the Splitter Guard On?

This is how we aim to present the vehicle and allow the customer to enjoy their experience of getting some of the fastest and most powerful cars with no alterations by us. For those who want to keep them on for a while, as a customer might do with a sticker on a new hat, we let the owner decide when to remove the plastic yellow splitters. It’s also not illegal to keep them on and drive with them, either. Protecting the low-mounted splitter of a vehicle is important to many drivers. Having a splitter guard will help to ensure there are no marks on the vehicle when parking or driving up or down steep parking ramps.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has done it again. A brand new Dodge Charger special edition is set to come out in 2019. Dodge has always found a way to make their muscle car collection even stronger and better. The latest edition is no exception. The 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Octane Edition makes a statement and a truly unique looking vehicle that stands out anywhere it goes. There are only two color options that will come with this new SRT Hellcat, either a “Pitch Black” or “White Knuckle”. Both feature solid colors with dual-stripes that run all the way down from the bottom of the bumper to the end of the truck. Let’s get into the other details that help make this special edition Charger stand out.

The Latest Hellcat In the Dodge Collection

Before 2019, Dodge did not have an SRT Hellcat for the Charger. Now, the Charger is gaining its very own special edition that is worthy of praise and admiration. Under the hood owners will find the 707 horsepower 6.2-Liter HEMI V8 Charger Hellcat engine with an engaging appearance throughout. The powertrain equips 650 lb-ft of torque and takes only 3.6 seconds to go 0-60. That’s wicked speed for any owner to enjoy!

The decklid is all black and the rear spoiler is finished in a Satin Black finish. The color scheme is complete with red stitching throughout the entire interior. The instrumental panel adds a noticeable black-on-black Hellcat badge and the red accent colors are found on the seat belts as well.
