Dodge has revealed a concept Charger Widebody at Spring Fest, a motoring festival dedicated to cars developed on Chrysler's LX underpinnings.
Although it's labelled a concept, the camouflaged vehicle is being talked about as production-ready on Dodge forums. Autoblog reports there's been forum chatter about a wide-bodied Charger Hellcat and 392 Scat Pack since 2017.
Then, earlier this month, Allpar received internal slides from Fiat Chrysler detailing what the production car will look like. With a fresh front fascia, a new rear end, flared wheel arches and wider tyres at all four corners, the four-door Charger will follow in its two-door brother's footsteps on the styling front.
Pictured here in a red, white and black camouflage wrap, the official line from Dodge is that the Charger Widebody is just designed to gauge interest from the general public.
The grille is borrowed from the Durango SRT SUV, while the wheels are five-spoke aluminium units. Although it's based on a 13 year-old chassis, the Charger still has plenty of life left.
Speaking with The Detroit News earlier this year, Mike Manley, Fiat Chrysler CEO, said electrified replacements are coming within the next decade.
"The reality is those platforms and that technology we used does need to move on," he said.
"New technology is going to drive a load of weight out, so we can think of the powertrains in a different way. And we can use electrification to really supplement those vehicles."
At the moment, the Charger and Challenger are powered by a range of engines running from a 3.6L V6 to a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 making 524kW. None of them feature any form of electrification, but that hasn't held them back in the sales charts.
Last year, the Challenger was second only to the Ford Mustang on the two-door sales charts in America, while the Charger topped its numbers from 2009 and 2011. Unfortunately, no amount of sales success will save the current Hellcat and its variants, which will go hybrid in the next generation.
