The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody borrows its fender flares from the Challenger SRT Demon, which adds an extra 3.5 inches of width. The wider fenders make room for new 20 x 11-inch “Devil’s Rim” split-five spoke aluminum wheels and wide 305/35ZR20 Pirelli P-Zero tires with a new tread pattern. The Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody also gets new electric power steering system with SRT Drive Modes that adds selectable steering tuning for the first time on a Hellcat model.

The lateral skid pad grip increased by .04 g (.97 g in Widebody vs. .93 g in standard Hellcat) and the 0-60 mph time has dropped by 0.1 second (3.4 in Widebody vs. 3.5 in standard Hellcat).
