Dodge Challenger, Charger Hellcat Prices Rise $3650-$4200 for 2016 - Motor Trend

2016 Challenger and Charger Hellcat models do receive more standard equipment along with the price hike, as all cars now include navigation and Laguna leather seats. A Dodge spokesperson said that these features had a high customer take rate on the 2015 models, and valued the content at $2,490. Aside from these newly standard features, the 2016 Hellcat models are unchanged. We previously reported on the huge early demand for the Hellcat models, which are powered by a 6. 2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 putting out 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. After receiving a huge amount of orders from dealers, Dodge produced around 4,000 examples of the 2015 Hellcat models, and then announced that it would double production of Hellcats for the 2016 model year. Because some unfulfilled 2015 orders were cancelled and transferred to 2016 orders, Dodge said it will provide discounts to these buyers to make up for the price difference for the new model year. If suddenly every Hellcat they spit out sits on dealer lots for months and months, the prices will come down. That, and the fact that the 2016 Corvette is not much of a improvement over the 1997 Corvette, especially to those that modify their cars like I do. GM can kiss my a$$. If GM wants more than $33k of MY money, they need to offer a modern drivetrain... So in terms of production, it was smart for Dodge to equip all models with such to ease varying production and ensure timely delivery. Source:
