2020 Dodge Charger Review

  • Powerful V8 engines available, including the one for the 707-hp Hellcat
  • Trim levels and graphics packages allow for plenty of personalization
  • Infotainment is user-friendly and features a large touchscreen
  • V8 engines can be thirsty when driven with enthusiasm
  • Sloping roofline impedes visibility and rear-seat access
  • In fit and finish, it lags some competitors
  • New Widebody versions of the Hellcat and Scat Pack
  • Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition debuts
  • Other trims receive minor revisions
  • Part of the seventh Charger generation introduced in 2011

Automakers have largely given up on making large sedans, especially ones that deliver high levels of performance. But Dodge continues to keep the flame lit with its 2020 Charger. Combining the visceral excitement of a muscle car with the convenience of four doors, the Charger is in a class by itself.

You can choose the V6-powered Charger in its base form or go all out with the 707-horsepower Hellcat and its supercharged V8, but there are plenty of happy middle-ground options as well. 2020 also brings some new Widebody variants that deliver greater visual swagger as well as improved cornering performance. This year also marks the Charger's 50th anniversary, which Dodge is celebrating with a 717-hp Daytona limited edition.

Combined with some more extensive underbody changes last year, the Dodge Charger remains relevant even though it's been almost a decade since it was reintroduced. Certainly, there are more sensible and fuel-efficient choices for a roomy sedan. Toyota's Avalon, in particular, has become surprisingly sporty in recent years. But if you have an appetite for performance but want some sedan-based practicality, the Charger is the only way to go.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best
No other American sedan has the same combination of performance, comfort and muscle-car style as the Charger. Acceleration is quick and the brakes are reassuringly strong, but the vague steering feel and the suspension's sensitivity to midcorner bumps hamper overall handling. Scores for convenience and utility are also middling.
The Charger's front seats provide plenty of bolstering and lumbar support. They'll keep you comfortable on a long road trip and keep you in place when the road gets twisty. The rear seats are also well contoured with similarly supportive padding.

On the downside, we could feel just about every bump in the city and on the highway from our Scat Pack test car. Base Chargers will ride a little more softly. There's a fair amount of road and tire noise at highway speeds too. Everything is damped down by a lot of sound insulation, but the Charger is no hushed highway cruiser.
The Charger is spacious on the inside, especially in the front. The back seat fits adults well too. There's enough head-, hiproom and shoulder room for at two adults and one kid in the back. It's much roomier than a two-door muscle car.

The Charger's wide roof pillars impede your view. A small rear window and a sloping windshield also affect visibility. You can see out of the car while moving forward relatively well, but it's nearly impossible to truly look through a corner on a curvy road. The sloping rear roofline means you'll have a hard time getting into and out of the back seat without grazing your head.
Dodge's Uconnect system is one of the best around. It responds quickly to inputs and catalogs music collections with lightning speed. An optional 19-speaker stereo drives up the price quite a bit (we'd skip that option), but voice controls and navigation are excellent.

A collection of driver safety aids, such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assist, are part of the optional Technology Group. All work pretty well. The adaptive cruise control's following distance is relatively conservative.
The trunk is decently sized, but there's a high liftover height and the space narrows significantly toward the back. Non-performance-oriented competitors in the midsize segment do much better. The door and center console pockets are relatively small, and they're paired with small can-sized cupholders. Rear seat storage is limited too.

Car seat anchors are hard to see in all three seating positions. The back seat is wide enough for bulkier child safety seats, and there's generally enough space to fit them behind the front seats, but the Charger's low roof makes it difficult to load a seat and attend to a child.
The Charger is definitely not the car you buy for fuel economy. The big 6.4-liter V8 is better than the supercharged Hellcat engine, but only marginally. The EPA estimates 18 mpg combined with the 6.4-liter engine. We averaged 19 mpg on our 115-mile evaluation route.
Most of Dodge's development budget went toward what's under the hood of this car. Build quality is good but not great. Nothing was rattling or squeaking in our test car. But lots of the plastic interior surfaces feel a bit cheap for the price point.

As far as the ownership experience goes, expect to spend a lot of money on gas if you've got a V8-powered Charger. Warranty and roadside assistance coverage is average compared to other sedans.
You'll find fewer brute-force muscle cars on the road these days, and pretty much none are equipped with a big, non-turbocharged V8 and four doors. The Charger with its optional engines and many customization options really is in a class of its own.

If your idea of fun is blasting tunnels, chirping the tires, and setting off with eye-watering speed, then this car in this configuration will be right up your alley. It's no sports car, but it handles curvy roads well too. Everywhere you drive the Charger (except the gas pump), you'll be smiling.

Which Charger does Edmunds recommend?

For the full muscle-car experience, we suggest stepping up to a V8-powered Charger. The R/T is the entry-level for the eight-cylinder models and comes well appointed with more creature comforts than supporting trims. We'd also add the optional Driver Confidence and Technology packages.

Dodge Charger models

The 2020 Dodge Charger is a five-passenger, four-door sedan available in five main trim levels: SXT, GT, R/T, Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available on the SXT and GT trims.

The SXT starts with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (292 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque, or slightly more with all-wheel drive selected) matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. You get a decent number of standard features, including keyless entry and ignition, a power-adjustable driver's seat and Dodge's Uconnect infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.

Next up is the GT. It still has the V6 but comes with more features such as bigger wheels, a performance suspension, front sport seats and a 8.4-inch touchscreen. The R/T is equipped similarly to the GT, but it comes with a 5.7-liter V8 engine (370 hp, 395 lb-ft).

The Scat Pack adds to the R/T a bigger 6.4-liter V8 engine (485 hp, 475 lb-ft) and Brembo high-performance brakes and a limited-slip rear differential among other performance upgrades.

For the above trim levels, a variety of optional packages are available. Highlight features include xenon headlights, an upgraded suspension and tires, a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats and a Harman Kardon sound system. For added safety, check out the Technology Group package.

Finally, the SRT Hellcat Widebody tops the Charger line with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (707 hp, 650 lb-ft) and almost all of the above options. The Widebody upgrade (flared wheel arches, wider wheels and tires, and adaptive suspension dampers) is also offered on the Scat Pack as an option.

For 2020, a Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition is limited to 501 units and builds on the Hellcat Widebody's features. You get a slight power increase to 717 hp, premium leather upholstery, and numerous exterior and interior treatments.

5 out of 5 stars, Charger GT AWD
Greg Kozera,
GT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

It is a great car. Incredibly quiet and all controls are easy to use The handling and braking are confidence inspiring when driving

5 out of 5 stars, Scatpack Widebody is the perfect blend
Chris Gray,
Scat Pack Widebody 4dr Sedan (6.4L 8cyl 8A)

Picked up my black 2020 charger a few weeks ago and it is fantastic. Great horsepower and handling. Interior is actually much better than what I remember from my previous Dodge vehicles (2012 Charger, 2014 Challenger). Gas Mileage is ok 16-18 mpg, but mostly around town. Have had the whole family in the car for road trips. Got it without the sunroof for additional headroom.

5 out of 5 stars, Fun to drive
Yh8dgr8,
Scat Pack 4dr Sedan (6.4L 8cyl 8A)

the only downside is the gas consumption. But the ride and handle is better than most, the power feels amazing. That Hemi growl is what separates this beast from the competition, the stock active exhaust is addictive..

5 out of 5 stars, Hard core muscle.
Scat pack grin. ,
Scat Pack 4dr Sedan (6.4L 8cyl 8A)

Burns lots of fuel. And burns lots of fuel. In case I didn’t mention it, it burns lots of fuel. 14 mpg around town. Might get 16 if you stay out of it, but let’s face it you buy it to romp on it. Car is too new to talk about build quality. Electronics are plentiful and the car is fully tunable as far as performance goes.

2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Review ― Cost, Interior, Specs, 0-60, Burnouts & More

[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: The American rear drive sedan, a staple of an automotive industry. Well, it was. The V8 sedan used to be the bread and butter of every American manufacturer. It's where the muscle car came from, and it doesn't really get any more American than that. But over time, sweet, sweet SUV and truck sales led manufacturers to simply abandon what they did best. Want some recent examples? Ford Crown Vic, history. Chevy Caprice, history-- actually, history twice, first time in 1996, the second time in 2017 just to spite us. The Dodge Charger? Well, it's still rocking. How? Let's look at the newest iteration, the Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody. Man, that's cool. So about that widebody package-- all the fenders are 3 and 1/2 inches wider than on a normal Charger. Now, they do that to help cover up the car's faintly ridiculous 20 by 11-inch-wide wheels. These are 305 section tires. That's crazy. But changes haven't just been made to the bodywork. There are new sway bars, and there's three-mode adaptive damping. Another fun fact, the name of these wheels. These are devil's rims, or at least that's what Dodge calls them. But I had a chance to talk to the designer of these wheels, and internally they were known as coffin wheels. [WOLF HOWLING] See it? That's pretty damn cool. A few other cool features about this car, one of them has to be that mail slot front bumper. That takes fresh air and shoves it right in the radiator's face. Something else-- it's not as cool to me, but if you like the black hood, well, that's part of the satin black paint package. And that includes the hood, the roof, and the trunk lid. And I hope you like it, because it'll set you back $3,500. So let's talk some real numbers now. Under the hood is a 392-cubic-inch, or 6.4 liters in old money, V8 engine. It makes 485 horsepower and 475 foot-pounds of torque. And it's made it up to an eight-speed traditional automatic transmission. It shifts hard and actually shifts pretty quickly too. So hiding or not hiding inside this car's massive 20 by 11-inch wheels are Hellcat brakes essentially, six-piston Brembos that clamp down on 15.4-inch two-piece rotors. And these brakes are bigger than the wheels on my first car, which was a Saab 900S, in case you were interested. Look at this. It's silly, but you know what? This is what Dodge does best. They do silly sedans. Love it. [ENGINE REVVING] So no one's going to accuse the Charger of being too modern on the inside, but I don't think you can criticize it for being too difficult to use either. Some people say that it is past its expiration date, but it still works. And it works better than a lot of other cars that try too hard. They try to be too clever. Let's take the ventilation controls, for example. It's a split setup with analog and digital. Normally I'm not a big fan of that, but they split the right items. All your major controls are here. You have a big fan speed knob, auto button, AC. A simple button push and you get the rest of your climate controls. Another bonus about not trying to be too clever, these are big air vents. They're easy to adjust. They flow a lot of air. And they cool a car as big as the Charger. Something else I like about this screen-- and it's not really the screen itself, but it's the shelf right at the bottom. It makes it easy to stabilize your hand on it, and push buttons, and scroll through the many, many millions of apps that this car seems to have, including the performance apps. Now, all of this is a lot of cool information, but probably stuff you shouldn't always be looking at when you're on the road-- temperatures, and pressures, G-force readings, power output, lap timers for freeway on-ramps. But you've got a drive mode selector. This is pretty cool. Now, you've got four main drive modes essentially-- track, sport, custom, and auto. Auto does a pretty good job on its own, and it's kind of hard to argue with it. But I like the custom setting because it allows you to change things like transmission response, paddle shifters, traction control, suspension-- these have three-mode adaptive shocks-- and steering, which is also a three-mode system. It's just the right amount of adjustability that you can have, and you can really dial the Charger in to suit your personality. But this car also has line lock, which is essentially a burnout button. You can't get that on a Ford Taurus. Actually, I don't even think you can get a Ford Taurus anymore. Shame-- not really. [MUSIC PLAYING] So with our test track still currently closed we don't have test numbers for this exact car, but we can revisit some of the ones from a non-widebody Charger from a couple years ago. Now, I wouldn't expect the Widebody to be significantly quicker to 60. It might pick up a couple of tenths time and speed through the quarter mile. It's probably a push. This car's got wider tires, so more rolling resistance. It's got a wider body, so more aero drag. Where I really think the Widebody is going to come into its own are braking and handling tests. Brakes on the normal Charger were quite good, but the 305 tires on this thing can really get put to good use. And the same goes for handling. So I wouldn't be too surprised to see this thing pull almost a G on the skid pad-- in a Charger, which is a family sedan with 11-inch wide tires. I can't wait to get back on the track. So what does this car compete with? What's America got to offer in terms of competition? [CRICKETS CHIRPING] Oh, how about the Impala? No. I think the main competition for this car comes from the Genesis G70 and the Kia Stinger. Now, both of those cars you might say, well, they're not really in the same price range. Actually, they kind of are. When you option them up with all the performance stuff, all the tech, all the features, they cost just north of $50,000. Now, while this exact Charger kicks the door down at about $60,000, you can save quite a bit of money on a few options like the satin black paint and get a Charger 392 Widebody for just about $50,000. That's great competition. Now, while the Kia Stinger and Genesis G70 both have a lot of features-- and they do have powerful twin turbo V6 engines-- they're both missing something, a couple of cylinders-- [ENGINE REVVING] --and that sound. That sound's worth the money. [ENGINE REVVING] What else is out there? Well, we can list off some European cars. I know that not a lot of people would ever consider cross-shopping a European car with a Charger, but I think they should. Audi offers the S5 and the S4. They're around $60,000 too. And now they have a considerably higher amount of refinement, but they also lack a V8 engine. They're just not as fun. They're a little too serious now, a little too clinical. This car is fun. Fun is important when you buy a car. There's also the Jaguar XF. Now, there's no longer an XFR, but there's also no longer a V8 XF. But there is a hot six-cylinder version, but that one's going to come in at over $70,000 when you fully load it. And it lacks a V8 engine. There's also the BMW 540. Now, I know what you're saying. You could just get the M550 because that comes with a V8, but that car is also $75,000 and up. To keep the price fair, BMW 540i is going to be right around $60,000. That's going to be about the same size that this car is. Also has more refinement, but just not fun, not like this is. I think this car can be cross-shopped against quite a bit more cars than people give it credit for because Dodge delivers power, lots of power, and value, and fun. Have I mentioned fun? Because this car is a lot of fun. Let's talk about handling. You could be excused for thinking that when you walk up to this car that it is a total monster, that it's looking to kill you, throw you into the trees any time you touch the car. Like that. But you know what? This car is friendly. It's easy to drive at the limit. And I got to give full marks to SRTs, chassis and suspension engineers, because this car, I mean really, has no business being this good on a curvy road. It should be frightening, and terrifying, and pants fillingly fast, and scary. But it's not. This car is friendly and easy to use. And that's because they just did such a good job sorting the chassis and the suspension. Now, this car is using three-way adaptive shocks. I currently have it in the sports setting. And I can drive this car about as hard as I want to because the car tells me what's going on. Rather than making the thing really stiff like some German performance sedans, they just kind of let the car be big. So it feels big. And yeah, it does kind of drive like a big car, but because of that you know what the car's up to. The car's being honest with you. It tells you where the weight's going. It takes a set into a corner right here. It's telling you what's going on, and that helps give you confidence. You know what's going on, so you can go faster, really. Almost have no business driving like this in this car. It's great. This is just-- [LAUGHS] Now, now, if you want to tell all your friends that this car is a serious ax murderer just to make yourself look like a great driver, I'm not going to tell anybody. If you looked up "burly" in the dictionary, you would find a picture of this engine. This is the 6.4 liter or the 392, like it says all over the car. V8-- this is 485 horsepower. And it is comfortably situated somewhere between lazy and snappy. It does not mind revving, but it's also comfortable just kind of like ripping around under 3,000 RPM. It's really something extra. Like, this is the quintessential muscle car motor. Lots of low down power, not super rev happy, but it doesn't need to be. It's got 485 horsepower, like, everywhere. It just pulls hard, sounds good. This is a traditional eight-speed automatic, so it's not a dual clutch automatic. But you know what? I don't mind. This has really quick up shifts if you want it. And it feels-- it just kind of matches the feel of the rest of the car. The transmission feels heavy duty. It feels like it can take the power that the engine is throwing at it. And I like the heaviness of the shifts. And it can be kind of abrupt, but you know what? It fits the character of the car. Everything in this car fits the character of the car. It's such a complete package. And because it's not a dual clutch, you don't get that kind of weird low speed chug that you can get out of one of those transmissions. This is just a normal automatic. The only thing I wish is that the throttle wasn't so jumpy. This thing, it's hard to parallel park this car because the throttle is just hair trigger. That first gear's short. It's a little too short. But, you know. I have to complain about something, right? [MUSIC PLAYING] For years, Dodge has continued to tweak and improve both the car's content and the performance. And the SRT guys love this car. They go to the car shows. They talk to the owners. They show them new paint colors and graphics packages. And then they go back to the factory and they deliver the goods. So with this new Charger Widebody, even in the lesser Scat Pack version, consider the goods delivered. [ENGINE REVVING] This thing's wild. I love a manual though. I mean, you guys can just lift it out of the Challenger, right? And can you put some carbon brakes on this thing? [MUSIC PLAYING]

The Dodge Charger carries on the long and wonderfully American tradition of rear-wheel-drive V8-powered family sedans. In this video, Kurt Niebuhr reviews the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody and explains why it remains one of the best of its kind.

Dodge Charger vs. the competition

Dodge Charger vs. Dodge Challenger

The Dodge Charger and Challenger are cut from the same cloth. They share similar underpinnings, engine choices, trim levels and options. Just think of the Challenger as the two-door alternative. Besides the number of doors, the other big difference is the Challenger offers a manual transmission, which should appeal to purists.

Compare Dodge Charger & Dodge Challenger features

Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang

Among muscle cars, the Ford Mustang ranks the highest in our evaluations. Like the rest of the offerings here, it's offered in a variety of models that range, in its case, from the mild four-cylinder base trim to the wild Shelby GT500. The Charger gains an edge for practicality, but the Mustang counters with superior performance.

Compare Dodge Charger & Ford Mustang features

Dodge Charger vs. Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro can thump out the power with the best of them and offers the sharpest handling in the muscle-car class. But that's pretty much where the advantages end. Outward visibility is abysmal, the placement of some interior elements are questionable, and the trunk is both small and inconvenient. Go with the Camaro if all you care about is performance. Otherwise, the Charger wins out.

2020 Dodge Charger Widebody First Look

Widebody Joy Comes to Dodge's V8 Sedan

Will Kaufman by Will Kaufman , Content Strategist and News EditorJune 27th, 2019

What is it?

The 2020 Dodge Charger adds the two-door Challenger's Widebody package as an option for the R/T Scat Pack model and standard for the Hellcat. So if you want a Charger Hellcat that'll fit in a compact parking space, better act now before the regular body disappears.

The Widebody adds 3.5 inches of overall width to the big sedan thanks to integrated fender flares. Under those flares, you get the same 20-by-11-inch wheels as on the Challenger Widebody, shod in meaty 305 section-width Pirellis.

Of course you also get beefier suspension and brakes to go along with the extra tire, along with some software tricks such as line lock, launch control and launch assist.

The Charger Hellcat's engine remains the same 707-horsepower absurdity, but thanks to the Hellcat Widebody's upgrades the car's quarter-mile time drops by just over eight-tenths of a second, according to Dodge, from 11.8 seconds to 10.96 seconds. Dodge says the 0-60 mph run is dispatched in just 3.6 seconds and a stop from 60 mph takes 107 feet.

Those numbers put the wide sedan within spitting distance of the 797-hp Challenger Redeye, which claims a quarter-mile time of 10.8 seconds and a 0-60 mph run of 3.4 seconds.

The R/T Scat Pack Widebody gets all the same upgrades, making for a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds and a 12.4-second quarter-mile.

Why does it matter?

Our copy editor won't let us spell "old" with 17 L's and a sighing emoji, but that's about how old the Dodge Charger is, and it's running on a platform that's even older. Dodge has managed to keep the car fresh with visual updates and technology upgrades over the years. But we think the automaker's real trick has been grabbing the public's attention with ever wilder performance to lust after.

When are we getting a new Charger that's actually new and not just a face-lift? Maybe never, but who cares when you can blitz most sports cars and even some of the slower Teslas? Also, fender flares look awesome.

What does it compete with?

At the Charger Hellcat's price point, it basically has no competition. The Cadillac CTS-V is the closest high-powered sedan on the performance/cost spectrum, but that car's going the way of the dodo. Beyond that, if you want whiplash-inducing raw acceleration in a vehicle fit for a family of four, you're going to need to shell out significant cash. Like over a hundred grand.

We don't have pricing for the Charger Hellcat Widebody yet, but we expect the package to knock it up by about $6,000, just like on the Challenger. That would put the 2020 Charger Hellcat Widebody at about $73,300. So for the price of an upgrade to, say, an M5, you could also pick up a Miata for weekends.

Edmunds says

The 2020 Dodge Charger Hellcat Widebody and Charger R/T Scat Pack Widebody add grip and even more attitude to the most raucous sedan on the market.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Dodge Charger?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
