This does not mean that you can go order one if you haven’t already. Those who are already on the list will be getting their cars sooner. The news comes from Hellcat.org who reported the extra units through an anonymous source.
They did not have information on the split between Chargers and Challengers, but at least it means that Dodge is doing what it can to address the huge demand. The hold-up is reportedly due to engine production, so the extra thousand means they’re making the engines, but which cars they’ll put them in is still a mystery.
There is plenty of frustration coming from those who are waiting on their Hellcat and this latest move shows Dodge is doing what they can to fix the situation. Stopping new orders was a good first step and ramping up engine production is another step in the right direction. Hopefully those waiting will be getting their cars soon.
