dodge restricting new hellcat orders until older orders are fulfilled

Clamoring for a Dodge Challenger or Charger Hellcat? You’ll have to take a number to order one, as the brand is restricting new orders until it catches up.

MotorAuthority reports the brand is doing this because so many customers want to throw down behind the wheel of the 707-horsepower, $60,000-plus boulevard bombers. Per a representative:

Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system.

As of now, over 9,000 orders have been placed for the Hellcats; over 2,200 have been delivered thus far.

    This engine needs to be in the 300 grand cherokee ram 1500 and the forthcoming grand wagoneer. I could imagine they could easily sell 60,000 of these a year between the 6 models at a nice profit.

      It needs to be in a lower priced Viper as well, but for some reason that one is not happening. The V8 is smaller, lighter, more efficient and less expensive than the V10. It is also more capable of making lots of power. The only thing that the V10 still has going for it is the V10 sound, but that is not translating into sales.

    Cadillac may be the best engineered US cars, but their sales are horrible. How could things go so wrong for Cadillac.

    Cadillac,the worlds most overrated truck.(and surely the ugliest) that is what went wrong. I was talking with a car importer last sunday and he has a waiting list for Hellcats .If you think 60 grand is high,imagine what the enthusiasts in OZ are paying,on top of the 100% import duty. then the cost of converting to RHD. They are shopping in the USA all the time to get them. Those who are getting their cars are probably making money on them straight away.

    Wow, this thread kind of went off the rails seems like. My thought was the wait list is getting longer due to the Disney world affect. Go on the ride, get back in line and do it again. Buy a hellcat, wreck it 42 minutes after delivery, go back to dealer and order a new one. As for the 60k Dodge, the other side ore the parking lot at other dodge store where they keep the pickups has 60k Rams stacked up like cord wood, for a great selection. They sell them all day long. I think the bigger question, is how in the days of 60k dodges can we have a new Mercedes available for half that price? Seems like everyone has an identity crises.
