    Hey everyone,

    Finally got around to finding a 2015 Challenger Hellcat with the options/colors we wanted and the best I can do with the dealership is MSRP.

    Is this pretty much the best we can do right now? Not excited about the 2016 price hike.

    Just hate paying MSRP, seems like when I bought my 2013 GT500, just searching around found one close to invoice a few hundred miles away even when they were seeing dealer markups.

    Doesn't seem the Hellcat market is that way...

    BTW: The car is for my wife :)

    Most people pay above MSRP, and even blue-book value for used Hellcats is higher than the original sticker price, so it sounds like you got a bargain!

    Thanks :)

    I really just wanted to make sure before pulling the trigger.

    Was pretty much exactly how we would order it as well.

    I would say so. I know paying MSRP in this day in age is crazy but it's a case by case scenario. With the limited supply and the high demand people are throwing money at these things, almost bidding against each other in some cases so to find a dealer willing to sell one at MSRP is pretty legit. Good luck :)

    I completely agree. But this car is hot. My dealer was going to sell their only allocation for 78k for the 16 model. I said " No thanks. I'll drive 80 miles for one at MSRP". Then magically, to keep my business they said, they had another allocation that they were willing to sell at MSRP.

    But from reading this forum it seems like most of the early adopters paid over MSRP just to get their hands on it now. Which is fine but at the moment this thing goes for MSRP+. I read somewhere that the dealership still makes 5.5k off the sticker so it's still profit for them.

    It's weird... invoice pricing looks pretty slim vs MSRP, it was huge on the GT500.

    I guess there is a lot of room for dealers even at invoice?

    I'm definitely not an expert but dodge wants dealers to let people get this car for it's real price, so you can assume dodge wouldn't punish dealers for selling it at sticker. Hence the Sticker price being fairly low for a car of this stature.

    If you get it for MSRP you will be in the 20 percentile of people who got it for MSRP. I say go for it if it is exactly what you want and you get get it now!!!

    LOL I will :)

    Dealer is letting me drive it for the inspection miles as well.

    Going to drive it home as well. My wife's too nervous to drive it off the lot haha

    She hasn't driven stick in a while. She drove my car twice, but the GT500 with Recaros doesn't have memory seats and I'm weird about my seat position...

    Do the Hellcats have memory seats?

    Also, do they come with 2 red keys? If not, how much is an extra?

    think most HC buyers paid sticker.....someone said most pay ADM, i dont think that is true at all....think they did polls here and it was only like 33% paid adm.....

    very,very few paid less than MSRP...take it

    also bought a 13 gt500 at 4450 off sticker right after they came out.......many dealers wanted sticker or up to $8k over sticker for it...but i found one on ebay for a normal car price...

    too many willing to pay MSRP...so thats where it sits....id pay it and be done
