2016 Hellcat prices: Corrected, with options

by David Zatz on

Allpar recently noted Moparian’s predictions of 2016 Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat pricing.

Reliable source oh20 has added information and Allpar has re-investigated, and found that while the price increases are not as high as previously thought — because dodge.com factored in the $1700 gas guzzler tax in their 2015 bottom lines — increases in option pricing will have an impact on buyers who load up their already-well-equipped cars.

Buyers of 2015 cars whose orders were dropped are getting vouchers for $4,000 on Charger and $5,000 on Challenger.

The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be $62,495, while Charger will start at $65,945, according to both Moparian and oh2o. However, that does not include the gas guzzler tax, so the price hikes are really $4,200 for the Challenger and $3,600 for the Charger.

It does not stop there, though. For the Challenger Hellcat, Dodge is adding a thousand dollars to the price of the automatic option, $600 extra for brass wheels, $200 more for summer tires, $800 more for the sunroof, and $100 extra for the red belts.

That said, Dodge is now throwing in the navigation system, formerly $695, and Laguna leather, formerly $1,795.

Thus, buyers of a base Challenger who have a voucher will save $800 (and get free navigation and Laguna leather seats) and buyers of a base Charger who have a voucher will save $1,400.  However, those who don’t want the nav and Laguna but want summer tires, automatic, sunroof, etc., will pay more than they’d bargained for.

In both cases there is a $995 destination charge in the continental United States.
