I just priced a base 2011 Challenger R/T with Orange paint, 6 speed and Sirius radio. It was $2305.00 cheaper than the 2010 set up the same way. I think I will wait for a 2011 unless the deals in my area [central IL.] get much better on the 2010's than they are right now. I think the dealers with the 2010's are stuck with them.

Don't bet on it. There have been reports of $6k+ off of sticker on 2010s. They'll move.

I'm unable to build a 2011, is that function dependent upon ZIP code or am I in the wrong area on Dodge's website? Thanks, Mitch

I just priced out the 2011 with the same options as my 2010 and it was about $700.00 cheaper. I have the auto-stick. Keep in mind that they changed the cost this year for the trans. Before if you got the six speed manual you paid extra while the auto was no extra charge. This year they flipped it. Now the auto is an extra cost. It does seem like the 2011's are running about $2000.00 cheaper if you get the manual. I wouldn't trade my Hemi Orange though. It's worth the extra money.

Until you see an actual 2011, it could have a lot of stuff striped out. Trunk lid liner, PCM cover, strut covers... you get the idea. I do like the electronic power sterring introduction for 2011. Seems pretty cool.

I built a 2011 like my 2010. 2011 MSRP is $32,990. MSRP on my 2010 was $34,765. And it's an auto. Wish I had waited and ordered a 2011. With rebates/discounts, I paid $31,400 for my 2010; I think I could have gotten a 2011 pretty close to that and received all the improvements, plus a one-model-year newer car.

After Jan. 3 , I think Dodge will up the rebates to consumers $ 1000.00 or maybe nothing more, but the dealers will get some huge incentives to move the Challengers , $ 2000.00 or more could be possible ! Unfortunatly will will not know the dealer incentives.

I think, and this is just going with what that Build My Dodge site says for the 2011's, the difference in price for the auto may have more to do with that the Electronics Convenience Group is built into it now automatically as it is no longer an option on the website. It only pops up as an option on the manual and even then it's $700 and doesn't include push button/remote, etc. obviously.

From building a 2010 Challenger like I want to building a 2011 I get $1175 off just between the two model years.

Of course now I can't decide between a manual (which I don't know how to comfortably drive at the moment) or an auto (as I like the idea of remote start/push button start). Oh well, can't get it until I find a job anyway...

yeah I've been talking with a salesman and he's acting like he's giving me a good deal on an 2010 R/T classic at 35k (that's with incentives!)... Just priced a 2011 out and it's 34,290... I think i got some talking to do with this guy

It's true, if you get a 6-speed you can save around $2,000 on the 2011 vs 2010 model. But you also have to factor the incentives for the 2010's. I just bought one and got $6k off the sticker ($33k MSRP).

Even with the $2,000 lower MSRP I don't think you will be getting $4,000 off a 2011 model to make it the same price as the 2010. Maybe towards the end of the 2011 year you could. But then it will be the same battle, just different years...2011 or 2012. It's a vicious circle, LOL.

The biggest part of the price difference is that the 2011 models (R/T and SRT) are now standard with 6-Speed and the automatics are now optional charge. In 2009/2010 it was the other way around.

I agree. I was thinking the same thing.

I work with steel and steel costs have been rising for several months and will probably continue to rise. If production costs go up, I don't know if they can hold the lower MSRP? Maybe they've reduced production costs somehow? I don't know what percentage steel cost if for a car, but it has to be significant.

so wait... You got yours for 27K? which one is the 27F?

they are telling me that a 2010 classic with Super track pack and Nav is 39K retail. So with incentives i'm around 35k.

Which incentives are you getting for 6k off?

was your SRT8 on the lot? I was investigating on an SRT8 but they only had automatics and I wanted the 6 speed. Said the best they could do was 39K.

also which incentives are you getting?

I know the SE prices went up because they added more content in the base model along with dual exhaust and the chrome fuel door as standard on all SEs.

Yes it was sitting in the lot, I found it on there website for $39,995 and on top of that I got $4500 off from Chrysler that had a rebate thing going on.

They have I beleive 1 torred and 1 blue one 6 speed at $39,995 still. The torred one has 147 miles which is the one I wanted but did not want that mileage and the blue one has 30 miles on it.

Search Westbury's new car inventory.
