The history of the Dodge Charger goes as far back as the mid-1960s, when it made its reputation as a powerful two-door muscle car. After going out of production in the late 1980s, the Charger nameplate returned in 2006, this time attached to a rear-drive sedan. Today, the modern iteration of the Dodge Charger is one of the fastest sedans on the market. Let’s take a look at the exterior features of the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody trim of this ferocious performance sedan.
The Widebody style, available only in two trim levels, is 3 inches wider at the widest point of the vehicle than the standard Charger. As a result, the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is a relatively large performance sedan. It sits at 201 inches long, 57.6 inches tall, and around 78.3 inches wide (discounting the side mirrors). Its front and rear tracks measure 65.6 and 65.3 inches, respectively, while the frontal area amounts to 27.2 square feet.
To get a sense of how the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody measures against other Chargers, it may help to look at the base SXT trim. Here, you’re looking at a length of 198.4 inches and a width of 75 inches. The tracks measure around 63.5 inches, and the frontal area is 25.8 square feet. If you place the SXT next to the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, you’d probably notice the physical difference.
The fender flares is the most distinctive styling characteristic of the 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, where the vehicle gets the crux of its added width. These broaden the body and give it a more dynamic appearance. They also need proper coverage over the wider Pirelli tires that come standard at this trim level. Measuring 20 by 11 inches, these tires also add to the stability and cornering performance of the vehicle, as well as the grip it maintains on the road.
Additional styling cues are those that are common to all Charger trims above the base level. On the front end, you have a functional air inlet with a heat extractor on either side, allowing for maximally efficient airflow and heat removal away from the engine. The front fascia is fierce and displays the SRT Hellcat badge toward the right side of the grille. The rear displays the signature wide LED taillights. In terms of colors, you have a well-varied palate from which to choose, including:
- Pitch Black.
- Smoke Show.
- Triple Nickel.
- Indigo Blue.
- Octane Red.
- Go Mango.
- Sinamon Stick.
- F8 Green.
- White Knuckle.
If you really want to give your Charger a sportier, more personal touch, you can choose from numerous racing stripe styles, such as:
Alternatively, you can opt for the SRT Black Package for a particularly fierce look. With this, you get black Charger exhaust tips, Midnight Metallic exterior badging, a Satin Black decklid badge reading “Charger,” and a Satin Black tail lamp badge that reads “Dodge.”
The exterior features of the 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody are more than just eye-catching physical attributes. They also contribute to the overall performance of the vehicle. For example, the Widebody’s broadness helps improve its stability, particularly as you make tight turns. Compared to a narrower vehicle, you’re less likely to experience the sense of tipping over.
Indeed, the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody has a drag coefficient of around 0.376 Cd — compared to the 0.304 of the SXT — which allows it to generate more downforce for higher-speed cornering. The same general concept is what allows race cars to turn corners more easily.
Also, it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss the Charger without examining its power and speed. Under the hood, you get a 6.8-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 that operates in conjunction with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drivetrain. The power output is a tremendous 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. With this, you can expect to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. Also, given a top speed of 203 miles per hour, you’re certain to be one of the zippiest motorists on the road.
A Look Inside
To round things out, let’s also take a look inside the cabin. The 2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody is a five-seat sedan with an interior volume of 120.8 cubic feet. Unlike a lot of performance vehicles, this one provides ample leg room in both rows — 41.8 inches in the front and 40.1 inches in the back.
The materials and technology provided within are performance-inspired. The driver information cluster is a 7-inch display that provides performance-related information and vehicle statistics. In the center stack, you get an 8.4-inch touchscreen with the Uconnect 4 infotainment system, and the front seats are heated and ventilated for maximum comfort. For added performance value, you can elect to add metal paddle shifters to the steering wheel, allowing for seamless shifting. A power sunroom is also available.
For colors, you have your choice between Black and Black with Demonic Red accents. Whichever you choose, you’re getting a bold look that matches the ferocity of the vehicle’s body and performance.
