The new 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat coupe and 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat sedan’s awesomeness has caught up with them. The rear-wheel-drive cars both feature a supercharged V-8 that puts out a ridiculous 707 horsepower (that makes the Challenger Hellcat the fastest sedan, ever). It should really come as no surprise to anyone that demand has outpaced production, and FCA has had to suspend orders.
FCA says that it received “more than 4,000 orders in just the first few weeks” after the Challenger SRT Hellcat was available for purchase. Now, with more than 9,000 orders, the company is halting any additional Dodge Hellcat orders until it can fulfill current orders.
“Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system,” FCA said in a statement.
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat starts at about $60,000, and depending on features and options (and taxes), tops out around $70,000. Likewise, the 2015 Charger SRT Hellcat ranges from about $65,000 to $75,000. Considering the amount of power these cars put out, the amount of technology packed inside, and the muscle cars’ appealing and functional design, you can’t find a better value.
Though FCA hasn’t announced when they will begin taking new orders, here at Corwin Dodge, we have high hopes to be back to placing orders very soon. Stop by today to learn more.
