Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody revealed

  • 2018 Dodge Durango R  T

The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT debuted earlier this year as the most insane way to take the kids to school.

The more demonic look might be enough in itself to make you want the wide auto, but Dodge says the tweaks significantly up the Hellcat's game. A new electric power steering (EPS) system with SRT Drive Modes adds new selectable steering tuning for the first time on a Hellcat model. A power liftgate has been made standard on the 2018 Durango GT, while the 2018 Durango R/T gains front parking sensors.

You'll recognize the Hellcat Widebody's fender flares and front splitter from the Demon. After all, the Durango R/T won't have the same performance as the 475-horsepower SRT model.

FCA has also introduced changes across the Durango range for 2018.

Race-inspired, High-performance Interior The cockpit of the Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody remains true to its performance-oriented design and execution with world-class materials; high-sill center console and driver-focused instrument panel with 200-mph speedometer; SRT performance leather-wrapped flat-bottom, heated steering wheel; standard SRT Laguna leather performance seats with SRT Hellcat logo, and new red Hellcat instrument panel badge. Dodge has your back on that one. Squat LED fog lamps up front are also new. Dodge says that these tires improve the Hellcat's turning and stopping abilities, claiming increased skidpad grip and a two-second-quicker lap time around an unidentified 1.7-mile road course.

Dodge plans to have the 2018 Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody in dealers during the third quarter of 2017, where the muscular coupe will list from $71,495 with a mandatory $1,700 gas guzzler tax and a $1,095 destination charge. It will be offered with the choice of a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic when it starts arriving at dealerships this fall.
