    Was looking to order a 16' HC Challenger from a local dealer but they say that Dodge is not accepting any more orders for manual transmissions and I'll have to wait until 17' ordering opened up. Hadn't seen that anywhere else before so I was a bit suspect. Anyone think this is legit?

    I think the cut of for production of the 16's is around August so maybe it could be true? Maybe check with another dealer to see what they say?

    Can't imagine that. Would double check with another dealership perhaps. Good luck

    Your dealer doesn't have a 2016 Challenger Hellcat (manual transmission) allocation so they are BS-ing you... Dodge gives-out the allocations on the first Thursday of each month so go to another dealer.

    With the numbers I pulled yesterday on Hellcats out there in the market why order...

    1234 Total Hellcats available with 918 Challengers and 316 Chargers. A little bit of research should find you a HC you want...

    No billet silver manual with brass monkey wheels within 500 miles of me (I'm in CO). I've tried another dealer but they have yet to get back with me and I'm not even bothering with the dealers who are asking $10k over MSRP for their in-stock HCs.

    EDIT: Or even in the entire country checking via autotrader

    Have you tried the search for Billet Silver with the M6 trans and just left off the Brass Monkey rims? You can always powder coat the rims to be whatever color you want ... and doing that yourself will save you at least $1000 and the end result will be much more durable than the thin paint on the BM rims. Just a thought. Good Luck in your search and I hope you find the Cat of your dreams soon!

    Biller silver is definitely one of the harder colors to find.

    Not true, fca is offering my dealership to push an order through manual or auto if we take a pile of garbage from them. Dealership is on the fence about taking it as the garbage well take ends up being wholesaled for a loss and doesn't make much business sense unless the HC is sold for over msrp.

    Not "garbage". The proper term is "less desirable" ;)

    Call SRT directly or even dodge to ask the source. SRT is a very good tool and resource to use.

    Talked to another dealer - they went through the process of setting up a factory order for a manual for me (said 4+ month time frame) and then ended up saying the same thing - that any order now will be pushed to the 17' model.

    Not sure if this is fleet-only, but this page shows the 2017 Challenger ordering bank opening up on 8/15 with production starting on 10/17 with 10/14 being the final production date for the 2016 models.
