The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is a muscle car lover’s fantasy vehicle, but with a starting price of over $70,000, not all can afford it. However, Dodge has them covered too, with the Charger Scat Pack Widebody. Starting at around $50,145, it will not put a significant dent in your bank balance, but it will definitely plaster a smile across your face with its 392 Hemi V8 pushing out 485 horses. Accelerating from 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds when you hit the pedal to the metal, it is definitely a pocket rocket. It gives you a healthy and brag-worthy top speed of 175 MPH alongside musical exhaust notes for those who know how to appreciate it.

For the 2022 model year, the car will come unchanged over the existing model. The car offers a decent ride quality according to its performance and has a decent list of features on offer. Yes, we feel the interior still needs more refinement especially in terms of fit and finish levels along with the quality of materials used, yet the price to performance ratio it offers is nothing short of exceptional. In the segment, the car competes with the BMW M340i, the Ford Mustang GT, and the Kia Stinger GT1.

Which trim should you buy?

The Charger Scat Pack comes in only one trim and there are not many additional options. The Scat Pack Widebody is a complete package of the best, which is pretty surprising considering its price tag of around $50,000.

Release date

The Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody is expected to be released by the fall of 2021 yet Dodge has not made any official announcements yet.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Engine and Performance

The Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody gets a huge 6.4 liter naturally aspirated 392 HEMI V8 engine under its long scooped hood, and it produces a heart-thumping 485 horsepower along with 475 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a slick and precise TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic gearbox. The exhaust notes are a bliss to the ears with pops and bangs which will fill you with ecstasy. The gearbox is butter smooth and the shifts are lightning quick. The power is sent to the rear wheels but there are all sorts of electronic witchcraft going on in how the power is put to the tarmac efficiently through the axles. The acceleration is blistering fast for a car that costs around $50,145 with 0-60 MPH coming up in a mere 4.3 seconds when you smash the throttle. The torque is also equally spread out throughout the rev band. The quarter-mile time is equally impressive at 12.4 seconds while the car goes on winning hearts with its higher-than-average top speed of 175 mph. 

In terms of handling, the 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody doesn’t disappoint. Due to electronic assists, limited-slip differential, improved suspension, and widebody form factor, the Rear-Wheel Drive Dodge Charger Scat Pack remains perfectly stable on the highway at triple-digit speeds. But cornering is not what the Charger is made for. It is that traditional American low-budget Muscle car built for straight-line speed.

So, it also gets humongous four-piston Brembo high-performance brakes to make it stop on a dime. The braking performance is outstanding and the car stops in no time. The brakes inspire tremendous confidence and beg you to push the car. The brakes have unimaginable amounts of bite and tremendous feedback, so the seat belts are a must if you don’t want to hit your face on the steering wheel. The safety net of electronics like ABS, EBD, and traction control is always working in the background, but the important thing is they are not too intrusive and comes in only when necessary. 

The Dodge Charger stops in just 107 feet, despite being the heaviest of the lot which is astounding. The BMW M340i takes a bit more distance to come to a halt. The Kia Stinger GT on the other hand performs very well in the braking department and takes a considerably shorter distance to stop. The Dodge Charger, the BMW M340i, and the Ford Mustang GT share the same accelerating time here with 0-60 coming up in 4.3 seconds. The Kia Stinger GT is not too behind at 4.7 seconds.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Fuel Economy

In this high-performance segment, fuel economy is not a concern of the prospective customers. Those beefy power and torque figures along with the brisk acceleration times come at the cost of fuel efficiency. Though Dodge has used the MDS Fuel Saver Technology on the 392 HEMI V8 of the Charger Scat Pack, it is of little help as the Charger is only able to do 15 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. The figures do take a hit if you decide to drive the car enthusiastically. It has an 18.5-gallon fuel tank and enables the car to offer a range of 278 miles in the city and 444 miles on the highway.

The BMW M340i stands out like that smart kid in the block. Apart from offering superb performance without having a huge V8 slapped under its hood, the car also offers some excellent fuel economy figures such as 23mpg within the city, 32mpg out on the highways, and a 26mpg of combined mileage. Unfortunately, it comes with a rather small 15.6-gallon gasoline tank yet it offers some of the highest driving range numbers among the rivals here. The Ford Mustang GT shares its city and combined mileage figures with the Dodge Charger barring the 26mpg of highway mileage. It also gets a small 16-gallon gas tank resulting in lackluster driving range numbers. The Kia Stinger GT might be a modern car yet its V6 unit puts more emphasis on performance hence its mpg figures are somewhat better than the Charger.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Interior

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody has an all-black interior theme. The Charger makes liberal use of leather. The seats have leather upholstery with contrasting red stitching. The front seats are supremely comfortable and get aggressive side and shoulder bolstering along with heating and ventilation function. The driver seat is 8-way power-adjustable while the front passenger seat is 4-way power-adjustable. The rear seats can accommodate three people comfortably.

The dashboard is made of hard plastics, which seem durable but feel cheap and scratchy to touch. The suspension is tuned on the stiffer side but soaks up bumps pretty well and completely irons out the road undulations when the car gains some speed. That said, it feels a bit uncomfortable on rough broken roads at low speed. It has an adequate cargo space of 16.5 cubic feet.

The BMW M340i has superbly spacious front seats, but the rear seats feel cramped. The interior design is one of the best in the segment and the long list of features along with the abundance of plush feeling is what makes this car stand out in the segment as well. The Dodge Charger on the other hand is spacious in both the front and the rear yet it lacks the upmarket feel and finishes. 

The Kia Stinger GT gets a robust quality interior with plenty of soft-touch materials. The red contrast stitching on the dash makes it look premium and sporty. It also vaunts the largest cargo capacity in the segment of 23.3 cu.-ft. The Ford Mustang GT has a slightly better and modern interior as compared to the Dodge Charger yet it still follows the retro-modern styling and falls short in terms of features and comfort levels.

Standout interior features:

  • Leather seats
  • Dual-Zone automatic climate control
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and 4-way power-adjustable passenger seat 
  • Front and rear cupholders
  • Steering wheel mounted controls

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Exterior

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody looks stunning with its long sloping hood. The car has a hunkered down aggressive look, with the Bi-function projector headlamps which look like the menacing eyes of a beast. It also gets some aggressive DRLs. The tail lamps are sleek and add elegance to the rear look of the car. The tail lamps are connected in the middle by two red parallel lines, with DODGE embossed between them. The stunning looks of the car are mesmerizing.

The Scat Pack gets a monstrous hood scoop and aggressive side intakes, all of which are functional and not just cosmetic. The Charger Scat Pack Widebody gets humongous 20-inch wheels. There is a negligible gap in the wheel arches above the tires, and the tires themselves are thin profile. The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack is stylized with the Scat Pack grille, decklid, and 392 HEMI fender badges to show off its heritage-inspired 392 cubic-inch engine. The car also gets optional racing stripes to choose from, which are available in five different colors. All these make the Charger command a great deal of road presence and attention.

The BMW M340i is the best-looking rival on the above list. Also, it gets a unique and sleek exterior design that makes it stand out among its siblings too. The car measures shorter in length and wheelbase than the Charger, making it more nimble and maneuverable in city limits and tight spaces. The Ford Mustang has the shortest wheelbase here that results in a comparatively cramped cabin when compared to the rivals here. Nonetheless, it wears the iconic design and oozes that old-school, muscular appeal. The Kia Stinger GT looks like an angry car from the front end and the design suits its performance aspect near perfectly. But, the Stinger has the longest wheelbase here that translates to excellent legroom for the rear passengers.

Standout exterior features:

  • Projector headlights
  • LED taillights
  • Functional Hood Scoop 
  • 20” machine-finished alloy wheels
  • Functional Dual Exhausts
  • Rear Spoiler

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Competition

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 BMW M340i

The Dodge makes more power than the BMW and also reaches the quarter-mile the fastest. The BMW though has a few cards up its sleeve. It gives superior gas mileage on the highway, better interiors, and a practical trunk. In terms of looks, it's purely personal preference because both look equally pleasing to the eyes. That said, the BMW looks calmer and more elegant while the Dodge is a bit aggressive. We would recommend the Dodge over the BMW M340i.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 Ford Mustang GT

The Ford Mustang GT is a superb rival to the Charger Scat Pack Widebody, housing a massive 5.0-liter V8 motor and offering an almost 85-percent performance of the latter at a lower price point. The Mustang lacks the interior space that might make it less practical than the Charger but from the performance point of view, it gives tough competition to the Charger. Moreover, the Mustang carries an equally iconic styling quotient and a cult following just like the rival it goes up against.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody vs 2021 Kia Stinger GT

The Kia Stinger GT makes around 125 HP less than the Dodge from a smaller 3.3L V6 engine. Though where the Kia excels are handling and interiors. The Kia feels more premium and sportier. The build quality is top-notch and upmarket. The Kia is also more economical than the Dodge on the highway. However, for the horsepower per dollar ratio, the Charger wins hands down.

2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody Sedan Final Verdict

The 2022 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody looks stunning, packs in a lot of punch, offers great driving pleasure, and covers the quarter-mile in less than 13 seconds. It performs like a dream out on the highways and accelerates like a bat outta hell, which means that it ticks all the right boxes for an enthusiast who prefers performance over fuel economy and comfort. So, if your heart wants adrenaline on a budget, you should definitely go for the Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody.
