Hellcat vouchers good for $4,000-5,000 off

by Patrick Rall on

When Dodge cancelled hundreds of orders for 2015 Challenger and Charger Hellcat models, they said they would send those with dropped orders a voucher for the 2016s.

The demand vastly exceeded expectations, and Dodge could not build the 707hp cars quickly enough, leaving some orders fulfilled. Rather than automatically carry them over to 2016, the company sent out vouchers for money off the 2016 cars — which are to see an undefined price increase — and cancelled the orders, leaving buyers to start over.

Today, the first puzzle piece on 2016 pricing dropped into place. Paul Immo, who organizes the massive Moparpalooza show each year, loves the Hellcat Charger so much that he ordered one for the 2015 model year, but when the company was forced to cancel the remaining orders, his name was on that list.

Paul has just received his voucher for the 2016 Hellcat Challenger or Charger, and he can save $5,000 on a 2016 Challenger Hellcat or $4,000 on a 2016 Charger Hellcat. We still don’t know how much these cars will cost, but based on comments by Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis a few weeks back, this voucher value could predict the 2016 price hikes.

Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis said that the people whose orders were cancelled for 2015 would get a voucher so that they could buy a 2016 model year vehicle for the same price. Therefore, the price increase for the 2016 Charger will be at most $4,000 while the price increase for the 2016 Challenger would be at most $5,000.

Some internet chatter suggests that the actual price increases for 2016 will be less than those voucher values, while others insist that the pricing will be much higher, to compensate somewhat for the nuisance of re-ordering.

Moparpalooza is scheduled for May 21, 2016.
