Bought my 2020 Scatpack last July and got a Deal with Power Dollars included on a Basic Scatpack in Manual Trans.Looking around on Dodges web sites I see few 2021 Basic Manuals if any 200 miles around me.
Seems that there are many 2020 still on dealer lots(Have no clue how many are manuals}
Know computer parts are getting harder to get for the cars.But glad I was able to get one last year and it just turned 1500 miles....JT

i think sales are up and production and availability of parts are scarce. they might just be building with what they can get ahold of, plus i think the auto out sells the manuals by 2-1

If you think scats are slim picking, look at/for new hellcats, or worse still, ..redeyes.
No local dealer around me, has any cats, new or used, least at my last few checks.
2021 has proven to be a bad year for dodge production numbers...I know of several guys whose 21 custom order builds have been seriously delayed..none of this is good with summer driving season coming in fast, but its been great for trade in value on top tier models.

Closer to 13 to 1, auto over manual. Manual transmission cars are roughly 8% of the total build. The rest suck. :ROFLMAO:

Not only are M6's rare in my area on dealers lots, when I ordered my 21' Scat they put allot of pressure on me to get the A8. I didn't so now I am glad I ordered the M6. I think they will phase out the manual in the next 2-3 years. That will make those cars with M6's much more desirable.

In the US, 4:1 ratio. Interesting. Wonder where that ratio has to get to before FCA decides to pull the plug on the M6?

Of the 474 50th Anniversary SPWBs, 38 have manual transmissions. That's 8% for that variant.

When the manuals are no more, those 8% will command a serious premium. IMO

I am sure the Autos are fine butttt many enjoy having a M6 like myself.
I am sure they will not make the M6s anymore in a few years but then again
Autos will not be made also since Dodge should have a New Challenger in the next 2 or 3 years.
Its just funny Not many if any Manuals in my area on ScatPacks but there are 2020s still on dealer lots most if not all are Autos.......JT(Pa,NJ area}

Sounds like I should put my 18 m6 Scat up for sale with a sweet price of $100,000.
May be a little premature for that now. But in the future???

This is the only reason why I decided against a new Challenger at this time.
I looked at dozens and called about dozens of other on lots within 250 miles of me. For months.
Every one that interested me was an auto. No thanks.
And at the time I thought of ordering one the plant was shut down, plus rumors of not being able to order a M6.
And I wasn't interested in having a car shipped.

There are pretty much no new 2020 or 2021 manual scat packs out there. Any that are out there (which is very few) are way overpriced.

that's due to dealers ordering for floor stock and by default the ordered A8 - most of the 50th Anniv were loaded up with options:
A8, Technology Group, NAV, Harmon Kardon audio, Sunroof, Hood pins, and the Alcantara headliner - above what the std. 50th Anniv Package included

the M6 ones were probably customer "sold" orders like yours where you heard of the 50th Anniv models and ordered it.
