    So I'm on a list with one of the bigger dealers in the nation and they received two Charger Hellcat allocations last month so I was looking forward to the this month and seeing how far I would move up the list but I was told that they would not be receiving any allocations for the next two months! What the hell? How can such a big dealer get two last month and then none for the next two months? I'm not sure it's worth looking for another dealer because all the other ones around me are not getting any for sure. So I'm curious if the SC shortage is causing this or if they just didn't get any. Either way I wasn't really planning on having one until this summer so I guess I will just hang out and see what happens. Thanks for letting me vent.

    Hopefully this means they are actually going to build some of the orders that have been in since September instead of taking more orders they can't deliver on.

    I believe he was referring to Charger orders, not Challenger. Order desk/builds for the Charger only recently (in comparison) opened up

    ^^^Yes but they are all built at the same plant and the Hellcat engines all come from the same place.

    There are no confirmed shortages of engines or SC's. Now, I agree it appears, from the statement made by ResumeSpeed, the Dodge is attempting to catch up on building some of the outstanding VINs/VONs. There's not one shred of evidence it has anything to do with parts availability.

    Good points. Guess that would make sense to get caught up.

    my guess is that he won't get more allocations until the 2 that he got last month are officially delivered and sold, then he'll get 2 more (or something like that). So allocated 2 in January, hopefully built in Feb, shipped in March so maybe the April allocation he will get another 2 unless they arrive early enough in March to beat the allocation week.

    and what I said above is based on nothing, just my own thoughts and guesses, please don't accept it as fact (although I'm never wrong about anything ever in my life)
