According to some recent information and announcements, the fans of Dodge vehicles and the speed enthusiasts may start looking forward to its upcoming models Charger and 2020 Dodge Challenger. Namely, we may have to wait a bit to see these major redesigns since the new Challenger should hit the market no earlier than 2020 or 2021 due to its possible new platform.
- possible brand-new platform,
- revolutionary design
- might be delayed,
- possible smaller size
As we have already mentioned, the first great change when it comes to 2020 Dodge Challenger refers to its brand-new platform. It has been discussed that the upcoming Challenger might abandon its outdated Giorgio platform, seen on the Alfa Romeo Giulia and start riding on a new Maserati architecture, seen on the Ghibli model. Unfortunately, such a platform might not allow the V8 engine due to its smaller dimensions, although it will be stretched. Therefore, you can expect the new Challenger to be wider, but it will generally appear smaller in size. Besides new platform, other innovations include its weight reduction. The carmaker will probably use some lightweight materials in order to save some weight and boost the overall performance. Also, no convertible configuration will be supported by this new platform so the fans should expect its coupe version only. When it comes to exterior design and features, the new Challenger will probably show its more distinctive grille, a hood scoop, round headlights, more muscular wheel arches and larger air intakes. It will definitely look sportier, more aggressive and dynamic.
Some serious changes and improvements might be also expected inside the cabin of the 2020 Dodge Challenger. Namely, the car will reveal a race-inspired interior with sports seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The seats will be comfortable and supportive, especially at high speeds while the driver’s seat will be power-adjustable as well. Besides leather, the company should use some lightweight materials such as aluminum inside. When it comes to high-tech features, the center console will reveal a larger infotainment touch-screen with sound system, navigation, climate control, a CD player, Bluetooth, USB ports.
The engine options found under the hood of the 2020 Dodge Challenger have still been a mystery. Although the fans hope for some powerful twin-turbocharged V6 and V8 choices, as we have already mentioned, the V8 engine probably can’t be a solution if the car gets that new platform. However, we are waiting for more official information at the moment. One of the possibilities found in a base model could come with a 2.0-liter turbo-four that hits around 300 horsepower.
