There could still be an element of truth here.
Without question, Dodge is one of the most owner-attentive automakers today, keeping a close eye on what the Challenger and Charger community forums and social media are discussing. When the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody was launched, Tim Kuniskis, FCA head of passenger cars for Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and Fiat, stated the following: "I mentioned how engaged the Dodge fans were. They're also not afraid to call us out on social media. So they quickly noticed that scales were tipped in the favor of the Challenger and not as much in the favor of the Charger. So today is step one in rectifying that."
That being said, there's still yet another Charger variant that doesn't exist which fans desperately want: a Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye. There already is, of course, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and clearly the Charger fans are clamoring for a version as well. Makes sense. So, is one coming?
According to Mopar Insiders, a "sponsored" post from the official Dodge Facebook account seemed to indicate such a model was coming. The caption read: "Turn some heads with every turn with the aggressive styling of the Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye." The included photo was a drifting 2019 Charger SRT Hellcat. That post has since been removed, though this doesn't mean a Charger Redeye isn't in the pipeline. Mopar Insider's inside sources claim the project remains "alive and well" and if all goes according to plan, we'll be hearing something possibly as soon as this summer.
One such venue could be the 2020 Detroit Auto Show in June or the Woodward Dream Cruise in August. For now, it seems the Facebook post was clearly a mistake but it still got the LX community talking. Who wouldn't want a 797 horsepower Dodge Charger (or Challenger)?
There have also been reported sightings of Dodge Charger Widebody vehicles testing around the Metro Detroit area, none of which had any badging. Could they simply be regular Charger Hellcat Widebodys? Unlikely because there have been plenty of 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and Scat Pack Widebody sedans driving around with any such camo.
In other words, Dodge is clearly working on something. Stay tuned.
