2016 Dodge Charger/Challenger Hellcat prices rise
There's a reason why Dodge offered the 900 or so customers whose 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat orders were cancelled last month vouchers to purchase the 2016 models at 2015 prices. The MSRP of the 2016 Hellcats will jump as much as $4,200. Dodge is ramping up production and promises to double output over the next model year from 4,000 to 8,000 units.
According to reports confirmed by Dodge, the 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat will retail for $62,495 plus $995 for delivery and an additional $1,700 in gas guzzler tax for an out-the-door price of $65,190. The 2016 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat costs $68,640 including destination and gas guzzler, which is $3,650 more than the 2015 model. Both models share a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 making 707 horsepower.
SRT 392 also bumped
Dodge is also raising the price of the SRT 392 package that boasts the 485-horsepower 6.4-liter normally aspirated V8. The 2016 Dodge Challenger SRT 392 will start at $51,190 including $995 destination and $1,000 gas guzzler tax, an increase of $3,500. The Charger SRT 392 will be $800 more, rising $3,000 over the 2015 model.
The price increases also reflects an adjustment in equipment. The previously optional Laguna leather and navigation, which cost $2,490, are now standard on all SRT models.
