I just wanted to talk to anyone that has ordered a hellcat...

I'm first on the list at two dealerships and one called me and told me they wanted 10-15k more!

The other dealership hasn't said anything about it, but just said they were waiting for the order banks to open up. I'm curios to hear how everyone else's orders are going.

No one has a ordered HC in the USA. Only a promise of a order.

I understand... but you can still put down a deposit at some dealers. I was just saying that is what he told me the price was going to be.

As stated before, if my Dealer should come back and demand $15,000 more after committing to sell at MSRP, I would tell them no. Then I would advise them that I may spend the $15,000, on an ad, to sure that their potential Customer's knew that they were lying sacks of BS. This, I assure you would cost them more than the $15,000 that they had attempted to raise the price by.

Unless you have a written and signed sales order you have no committed agreed price.

I was at my dealer. He showed me how he orders on the screens. He has been allocated 1 scat pack no SRTs and the hellcat option isn't even listed. He said "not yet"

He has a black scat pack to be delivered at the end of the month. I know the vin. This car was ordered on May 8th

Did he explain what allocations are based on? You'd think if a dealer wanted an SRT and was willing to pay for it, they would be happy to build it and ship it to them.

Well my order went from pending to confirmed and I was told it looks like Sept 1 when it goes to production so realistically I will not see mine until October! I'm good with that.

Jack you up 15k after taking a deposit on a previously agreed price seems like a false advertising lawsuit to me. Like a bait and switch tactic....

Can they do that?

Depends on if the price is agreed to in writing.

If anyone who wants a hellcat can just wait out the initial feeding frenzy I'm sure you can get one later at MSRP! THEY ARE NOT A LIMITED PRODUCTION CAR!

It's all over the internet $59,995

Besides written down or not, your still being lured into the store by a misleading price...... Then made to feel guilty if you don't follow through...

Why wait, just find the good dealers out there like I did. MSRP in writing and money down as mine will be the second one ordered, behind the owner of the dealership!

Another source backs up your statement:
http://www.autonews.com/article/201...rcharged-hellcat-engine-into-2015-charger-srt

During the Charger unveiling, it was stated:
"Kuniskis said there are no plans to limit production of the Hellcat. Ordering has not yet opened for the Hellcat-powered Challengers, dealers said."
