2016 Dodge SRT Hellcat Models See Modest Price Bump

Order books for the 2016 model year Dodge SRT Hellcat models were released earlier this week, revealing only a modest price bump for both the Challenger- and Charger-based Dodge SRT Hellcats. The 2016 Challenger Hellcat will base at $62,495, up $2,500 from the 2015 model’s price, while the Charger’s MSRP will increase by $1,950, to $65,945.

Auto Guide reports that for the additional cost, Dodge SRT Hellcat customers will get some added standard equipment, such as satellite navigation and Laguna leather seats.

Of course, with this, the restrictions for dealership orders of both Dodge SRT Hellcat models will also change, owing to the over-ordering of 2015 models which forced Dodge to cancel some 900 orders. Each dealership will be granted a maximum allocation amount, which Dodge can reduce should a given dealership keep any Dodge SRT Hellcat examples on the lot for too long.

Fiat Chrysler is hoping to increase production of the Dodge SRT Hellcat for 2016, with Auto Guide reporting a target of 8,000 units – about double what was produced for 2015. Engine output will remain unchanged, offering 707 peak horsepower with 650 lb-ft of torque.
