    I live in the Montreal area and no dealerships have any in stock, that makes it difficult to make a color choice .Any suggestions?


    Thanks

    Look at as many pictures of each color as possible with and with out black hood and brass wheels. Narrow it down to which ever your drawn to the most. This is personal preference.

    You may want to go look at regular Challengers or Chargers (don't know which one you're interested in) but if you can see the cars in person it
    may change your mind. I did just as hellzya suggested, it's a great suggestion and had narrowed it down to three colors and then went to a few
    local dealerships to look at Challengers (V6, RT and SRTs) and once I could see them in person and sitting next to one another my mind quickly
    made the choice.

    Good LUCK! I hope that you get exactly what you want.

    Color choice is a personal preference... the dealer should have a color chart you can look at. The only issue with that is that colors in a book may look a lot different on the car. But in the end no matter what you decide all the colors look great. I haven't seen a color I hate. For myself... I like the high impact colors especially on a Badazz car! But that's just me... Good luck.

    IMO, color choice was about what colors looked best with all the black trim. With that in mind, I immediately eliminated Jazz Blue (too dark to compliment the black trim).

    Granite was a little iffy.

    The remainder of to colors seem okay.

    I would lean toward impact colors for an "impact" car. But white or black would be very nice. My favorite color would be B5 Blue.

    Low production colors are the ones that you don't really see a lot. I preferred a stand out color like high octane red pearl for my 14 anniversary chally and billet for my HC. To me it's like this, choose a color you love that you don't see. B5 with black stripes 2nd choice

    Left up to me, it would be either Plum Crazy Purple, or B5 Blue. Neither colors were offered when I placed my order. Sigh.

    When I went for colors, I wanted something under the radar, so when the state trooper spits me 1/2 mile away he didn't look twice. So the hot signature colors were out for me. I knew I couldn't keep up with any shade of black : I owned a black Porsche before and it's only good looking 10 percent of the time, rest of the time it's clean and polish. When black is right, it's the best. I just don't want to work that hard.

    To be honest my first choice and easiest to keep clean was white with a black satin hood. Only reason I chose Granite Crystal was because I own several white vehicles already and I wanted to go different.

    At your dodge store there are many large ram trucks that have most of the same colors as the hellcat, they are easy to walk around and check out in the sunlight.

    For me I t ) which was Maximum Steel Matallic) but in the end, once I saw it, it was too dark for me (nearly black) and I didn't want that high maintenance.

    Sublime (15 only)..... and for your consideration, a Granite Crystal Metallic both years currently available. The TorRed looks killer in person but if I were not to lazy to keep up with it......the only color I'd consider is BLACK! Hellcat by shop.jpg 2016 Hellcat Day 1.jpg

    Always Rock the Red...

    But at 175 and accelerating with your eyes shut and grinning ear to ear will the color really matter?
