If you are a big fan of Dodge, you better check out their new release. The [2018 Dodge Challenger HellCat Widebody] is something that people who love muscle cars will truly appreciate. It features the same 840 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, but with better specs under the hood.
In 2015, a lot of people who bought the Hellcat complained due to its lack of wheelbase. But the issue has been resolved with the 2018 Hellcat Widebody. It is wider than the original Hellcat, this lets Dodge increase the tire width from 275 mm to 305 mm. it’s just over an inch in total but that already has a huge impact on its style.
One of the best things about it
At a high level, the Challenger Hellcat Widebody is a Hellcat that has received the fender flares from the Challenger Demon, along with bigger wheels and tires to match. The extended girth of the car measures 3.5-inches. Its fantastic wheels are now 20×11 inches which is bigger than the original one and wrapped in 305/34ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero tires. The bigger front splitter that can be seen lurking beneath the bumper came from the Demon, but the rear spoiler remains the same as the normal Challenger Hellcat. It’s taller than the Demon’s and offers better downforce which is why this new car is a whole lot better. This has been because the 2015 Hellcat had an issue with its wheelbase which, maybe, prompted them to change it.
Improved Cooling System
The Hellcat Widebody will come with a new electronic power steering system, isn’t that great? It has selectable modes, as well as an improved cooling system that can help it most likely without overheating, that the company claims can withstand 20 minutes of “hard driving” at 100 degrees Fahrenheit without causing any power loss. This makes it great for the owners who just love to speed.
Prices start at…
The Widebody starts at $72,590 (including destination fee), a fair premium over the $64,195 Hellcat and a price increase that puts it tantalizingly close to the $84,995 Demon. You can already have this ordered and check out your local car dealership for more information about this baby.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody isn’t the ultimate track-day toy, but then it isn’t really trying to be. Instead, it is a Hellcat that actually feels like it has enough grips to stand a fighting chance at managing all the power flowing out from under the hood. Will it really withstand the power? While chassis dynamics still feel rudimentary and a bit vague which is natural, this is proved to be a much better handling car than the Hellcat before and a hugely improved package over the base Hellcat.
