    Today was my 1st official day hunting for a Charger Hellcat in the NJ/NY area. Mostly what I have read as far as dealer markups seems to be true, around 15-35k in NJ. Out of state based on phone convos and emails exchanged it seems like ADMs are a little less averaging 5-10k. My question is I found 1 dealer in NY selling at MSRP when orders open back up, BUT I would be number 13ish on their list. What do you guys think about this? Should I even waste my time with them, or just suck it up and pay the 15-20k mark up?

    Thanks in advance for all your answers.

    they have already been saying allocations for 2016.. 13th may be a long long wait.. id keep looking.. and spread it out with multiple orders and go with what pops first

    i see chargers listed for msrp weekly on this forum

    you should be able to find one for msrp or a low adm if you spend a couple hours emailing/calling every dealer with one in stock or on the way..

    mine started out at a 15k adm and went to msrp after a few phone calls.....dont give up easy

    good luck!

    MY2016 allocations will be based on MY15 sales (normal Dodge sales get two allocations for every sale). Find dealers that took orders, sold and delivered cars. They will be getting MY16 allocations.

    For MY15...Search using the Dodge website and various zip codes from around the US, Cars.com, etc. Even Hellcats in transit may become available once the time is close.

    My dealer sold and delivered a dozen challengers but I'm their first Charger and still waiting. Many more Challengers than Chargers out there.

    Avoid the flamers that want ADM.

    Just keep searching hi and low and eventually youll find one for the right price. This one on ebay had 259 bids and didn't sell at 73k.

    Thanks Guys, that's good advice. I'm excited and every time I see one on the road it drives me crazy. Can't wait to get one. Hopefully by the end of the summer I'll be on here posting pics.

    Just got this email from a dealer in VA. Is it BS?


    Thank you for the reply! I got with my chrysler representative and the 2016 Hellcats will not be built until January 1st of 2016. We may be able to place the order earlier than that. So far we have 9 people on our waiting list for the Charger Hellcat, but we will contact all of the individuals on the waiting list once we are able to place an order. The vehicle will be sold for MSRP. We have sold 3 Charger Hellcats and around 5 Challenger Hallcats.
