Dodge Increasing Hellcat Production…Again
The Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcats remain some of the most talked about cars of the last few years. Last year, we actually named the Hellcat Charger our Bold Ride of the Year. They’ve won a slew of other awards, and just about everyone that’s ever come into contact with them has left with an experience of a lifetime. They are absolutely absurd cars, but even then, Dodge has to increase production…again.
That’s right, you can’t even buy a new 2015 Hellcat at the moment. Dodge is so backed up that they’ve cut ordering from the dealers. Honestly though, we’re just as surprised as Dodge that so many people are buying the Hellcats. 707 horsepower and RWD tend to be a bit intimidating to the average consumer. That combined with the $63,000 price tag not counting the dealership markups (that we all know is happening) and you don’t exactly have the recipe for a mass market car. Yet somehow, it’s become one.
