    From the pictures it looks like the 2015 had an armrest in the backseat don't know if they removed the armrest for the hk stereo subs just deleted it for 2016

    No HK in my car and no armrest in the back of my charger. Pretty weird honestly as it seems to be available on lower trims.

    No armrest in the back of my 2016 charger hc. I love the car, but there are some choices Dodge made that make me wonder. So much technology in the car but no power door locks in the back?

    Must be for weight savings never even noticed it before I told my daughter to put the armrest down and there's not one

    Mine has power locks in the rear. Something seems wrong if yours doesn't.

    2016 SRT 392 here and I have an armrest in the back complete with cupholders and a small storage space.

    Can't see why the Hellcats wouldn't get one....

    I realized after I stopped to drop someone off and they were sitting in the back seat, that they don't have a button to unlock the door. So there are power locks, but they can only be unlocked from the front seat (unless i am blind, which is entirely possible).

    Ah, well, that is a different thing entirely. Haven't been in the back seat to look at things much.

    I dont think many 4 door cars have power lock buttons in the back. Its not just Chargers

    True, but the charger has locks that can't be manually pulled up.

    No Sub speakers in the trunk of the Chargers, only Challengers. The speaker arrangement in the Chargers are different.
    There is more room to hide them in the Charger. If you look in the trunk of the Charger, there is a giant foam block where the
    Sub speaker is in the challenger.
    2016 ??

    The sub is up in the rear window deck, still in the trunk, but not the tire well.

    Literally I'm not sure I've ever seen this. Why would I want a back seat passenger to have control over the door locks. Imagine a kid hitting that button 1k times on a road trip.

    although it takes quite a bit of finger strength, i believe the rear lock knobs can be pulled up. i can't remember ever seeing any car with door lock switches in the back seat.

    16 Blackcat I noticed no rear fold down armrest the afternoon I picked up my Charger Jan. 19,2016. The sales staff had no clue as to why not ? At first I thought did I miss something in the ordering process, so I looked at my equipment listing (build sheet) and no rear fold down armrest. I then went on Dodges New Inventory Results and checked Charger Hellcats with interior pictures from around the country. No rear fold down armrest ! Is it a weight savings ? From the Charger SRT 392 on down to the base Charger SE all have the rear fold down armrest. Its funny now because I was pissed off when I first got the car and wondered does anyone else notice this omission. Love my Hellcat and could care less now. Thanks.
