Are these the 2016 Hellcat prices?

by David Zatz on

Dodge has already said that the Hellcat Charger and Challenger would have price increases, which is one reason why those 2015 orders were dropped are getting vouchers for $4,000 and $5,000, respectively.

Moparian wrote that Hellcats pricing has not gone up as much as some expected. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will be $62,495, while Charger will start at $65,945 (neither price has been officially confirmed).  In both cases there is a $995 destination charge in the continental United States, and a gas guzzler tax of $1,751.

Dealers may add to that price, or even subtract from it, but Dodge can’t control that.

The price increases are smaller than expected, at $2,000 for the Charger, and $2,500 for the Challenger, and the company could probably have multiplied both by four and still maintained demand. The difference in price increases explains why the Charger’s voucher is lower than the Challenger, whose price is going up by a larger amount.

The gas guzzler tax is not surprising for this class of car, as yet unmatched near their price points.
