    Hello all, I've a quick question for those still in the know with the current allocation process.

    Are there any more allocation rounds coming for the 2016 model year? If so, do the dealers know whether or not they are going to get an allocation? I'm talking with a dealer fairly close to me and they are telling me that they don't currently have an allocation to order but mine will be #1 on their order list (provided they get my deposit) and that they think they will get another allocation this MY.

    I was under the impression when I was following this much more closely at the beginning of the 2016 MY that the dealers would know at the beginning of the MY how many allocations they were going to get for early-2016 and then a reassignment based on early year sales numbers would be issued in February for all remaining allocations for 2016.

    So my question really is, shouldn't the dealer know for sure whether or not they are getting another allocation for 2016?

    Yes, dealers already know how many allocations they are scheduled to receive for the entire MY. This information was published in January. This applies to both Challenger & Charger variants.

    Looks like that confirms it?

    Model 2016 Fleet Final Order Due Date 2016 Final Production Date 2017 Order Bank Open Date 2017 Production Startup
    Dodge Challenger 5/20/16 10/14/16 8/15/16 10/17/16
    Dodge Charger 5/20/16 10/14/16 8/15/16 10/17/16

    Which means if you want a specific build, you're SOL for MY2016, and MY2017 doesn't really arrive until October. That's a lonnng wait.

    Hmmm. According to a couple dealers my 2015 voucher for $5000 off a 2016 won't apply to a 2017 model year, either. SOL, indeed.

    Just to be clear, as of now I have a order that's not been tagged yet. Does this mean it will be a 2017 by default? The order was after 5/20/16. Also any info on upcoming option changes other than stripes and color??

    --- not sure if that is even a thing anymore. my dealership has two on the floor. they get one regularly. i think the allocation was just for 2015. i could be wrong.

    The dealer may have an order submitted that they can change to your specifications. If not, try to find another dealer that has one in that can be changed, but it's going to be hard because there is only a small window to make changes to an order. Otherwise, it will probably be a 2017 because the 2016 order cut-off was 5/20/2016 and you have no VON.

    What the heck does "tagged" mean!?

    There's status codes: BX. BG. D.D1.

    those codes have meaning. Dealers and serious buyers speak this language. If you want to ask a serious question on this site, speak the correct language.

    As for order banks still being open, it appears the door is nearly closed, as allocations are on a region-dependent basis....for a 2 door Challenger start by doing a search of dealer inventory and keep a few color and options available as Plan B or Plan C....be flexible, all of them are great machines to drive.

    If it's a 4 Dr Charger, maybe tougher to find. May take a while longer to locate. Maybe prepare to buy a 17 model....
