Base price of Challenger does not include wheels!?
First of all: Happy Christmas to everyone. I have been a member of this forum for quite a while and have found it to be very informative. I tried searching about this but didn't find anything.
I am planning on ordering an R/T next spring. I used the Build and Price feature on the Dodge website. I was surprised to find that whatever configuration I tried, I ended up having to pay extra for wheels. The base price of the R/T is listed (in a small pop-up box) as $29,995, but at the same time, you are quoted a "net" price that includes an option of $1,095, plus destination, etc. That option is the wheels!
Is the Dodge Challenger R/T the only vehicle whose base price does not include wheels? LOL
When I used Build and Price several months ago for the 2012 vehicles, I am pretty sure that the wheels were not extra. Is this just a sneaky way for Dodge to avoid formally raising the base price of this model year over the last one? Or is the Build and Price feature not working properly?
