The Widebody model becomes standard on the Charger SRT Hellcat and optional on the Charger Scat Pack (packing the 392 cubic inch Hemi® V8). This treatment originated with the Challenger and involves fender flares front and rear and immense 305/35ZR20 tires front and rear, guaranteeing the traction to accelerate using the full power of the Hemi® V8 engines and corner hard.

To help steering feel and response, the Charger SRT Hellcat finally gives up its hydraulic power steering for an electric rack. Steering assist can be adjusted using the Uconnect touchscreen.
