    I am in San Diego and am getting closer to purchasing a Charger Hellcat.

    I have a few questions, please:

    1.) Is there a sunroof/moonroof option? Any 2016 Charger Hellcat I have found does not have one for some reason. Edit: I see that their is a power sunroof option in the Dodge online configurator. I just can't find one at a dealer with one!

    2.) Of the two interior seat choices, which is more desireable? (Laguna Lux or the Alcantara)

    3.) Are there any major updates for 2017 that I should hold off for, or should I pull the trigger on a 2016?

    4.) Is it reasonable for me to expect to pay MSRP and no ADM?

    5.) The few Hellcats I have seen in dealers looked like they have been driven by the sales manager or someone in the dealership. They are the most 'used' looking 'new' cars I have ever seen. Obviously that is not very appealing to a potential buyer. For those who have ordered their Hellcats, what was the turnaround time to receive the car? I figure about 2 months? Perhaps still I can still find the perfect new Hellcat that hasn't been used by the dealer. If anybody is in SoCal and could point me in the right direction in regards to reputable SRT dealers, I would appreciate it. A Viper T/A and Challenger Hellcat siblings are on the "must buy" list, so I want to make sure it is a quality dealer for future purchases.


    Coming from an (almost) stock 2008 300C SRT8!

    Thank you very much!

    Check cars.com, autotrader.com, and dodge.com for cars in your desired configuration
    Should be able to find your sunroof via search engine
    Seats are up to the driver...one is soft, the other is a firmer leather
    Charger colors don't always track with Challenger changes...model year is buyer's choice
    DO NOT PAY OVER MSRP...there were 500 Chargers listed on cars.com yesterday
    Check the mileage and top speed stat...if either one is excessive then walk

    Dennis at Landmark Dodge in Kansas City has 2 HC Chargers at invoice (below msrp). They also have two Challengers at invoice. His cell is (660) 460-0008

    ^^^^This...........except the top speed stat can be deceptive. Most of the HC come from the factory with a default reading of 191mph. Chrysler received so many complaints that they sent notices to the dealers to reset the top speed to zero during the PDI. This also means the dealer could take the car out and run it to it's top speed then reset the reading.

    Laguna cost more. You are already paying for the upgrade for Laguna.

    No sunroof for 2016.
    You should be able to pay at or below MSRP.
    And we won't know about 2017 for a couple more months. Chances are no big changes so if you want the car get it now.
    It comes with Laguna as far as I know and I like it over Alacantra personally.
    And I would order one unless you can get a screaming deal because yes they are driving the ones in the dealership.

    So....no Sunroof option for any 2016 Charger Hellcat? Is this confirmed?

    That really sucks.

    2016 with a sunroof here. They weren't able to be ordered with one for a while, but they put them back on as an option in late January/early February.

    don't wait. Pull the trigger on one when you find one. MSRP should be the top you pay anymore.
    I paid 2K over for my 2015. But never looked back.

    Leather interior is really nice looking and feels great. I have the sunroof in mine. Great to have outside air with the AC on.
    Take some pictures and post them, we all love HC porn.

    Was there when the Ronald Reagan was there. that really big bridge spanning the bay would make a great background for a picture. (senior moment, can't remember the name or the lookout point across the bay)

    Welcome from PA.
