    ...but with standard nav and laguna leather.

    Does this mean the price for a loaded Charger Hellcat actually went down? I paid $2,490 for the combination of laguna leather and nav..

    [sorry if this is a repost; in my search I only found 2016 pricing being discussed for the Challenger]

    The new prices don't include the gas guzzler tax like they did in 2015.

    Price went up $4200 NOT $2500 (Challenger)

    Last year Base MSRP: 58295
    2016 BASE MSRP: 62495

    Guzzle tax is not included in both.

    dodgeboy I'm not sure I understand. My Charger Hellcat base was $62,295 plus $1,700 gas guzzler tax = $63,995. The new Hellcat base price is indeed $1950 higher than that, at $65,945. (edit: plus $995 destination, old MSRP was $64,990, new MSRP is $66,940).

    Are you saying the new $65,945 is apples and oranges because the gas guzzler charge gets tacked on to that, so the real price increase is $3,650, making the new real base price (with guzzler, and including free nav and laguna) is $67,645?

    If so.. that's only an $1,160 increase compared to a similarly optioned 2015 model.

    I was going by this post by ResumeSpeed, which puts it at about a $4500 hike over last year (but includes nav and laguna): http://www.hellcat.org/threads/2016-dodge-charger-information-thread.8596/page-8#post-251667 . The people with the vouchers are going to get a sweet deal.

    My car was $62,995 base + $995 destination + $1,700 guzzler + $1,795 laguna + $1,995 HK + $1,195 sunroof + $695 navi + $195 summer tires = $70,865.

    Same car as a 2016 would be $65,945 + $995 destination + $1,700 guzzler + $1,995 HK + $1,195 sunroof + $595 summer tires = $72,425.

    Interesting. On mine it was $1,195. I guess that's another hidden price increase. So my car would actually be $73,225 as a 2016. A $2,360 increase.
