    FYI - Factory is cranking on MY15 Chally HC back-orders


    I couldn't find this info on any of the forums , apologies if I missed it or this should be posted somewhere else?


    Around the time (mid August) the factory was supposedly done and gearing up for MY 16 MY 15 HC order got picked up and built in a week and the factory started picking up dealer back orders and cranking out A8 and other MY 15 backordered Hellcat Challengers. My dealer had at least 3 that were stuck converted to orders for build & delivery 8/12-9/15. There may be quite a few folks surprised to see there orders picked up and moving thru. My order which I placed with my local dealer at MSRP was placed 9/26/14 and I'm happy I'll have my Kitty just ahead of the 1yr anniversary. I stuck with my dealer as they where selling only to locals and holding MSRP.

    Mine is an A8 I don't know what compelled the factory to push out the back-orders last I heard MY15 was a wrap. Maybe (A8 readily available?) concerned current back-ordered clients would not replace MY16 orders for fear of having to go through order problems and the lost revenue as folks went out and bought Z06,GT40's etc etc, capture large Q3,Q4 sales vs risk losing ??

    Seems if factory is building 15 at this late date, their not building 16's.

    I'm sorry the Charger Folks situations are more of a mystery and don't necessarily apply.

    Good Luck to u all, I hope yours is coming down the pipe soon !

    Best,
    J

    2016 MY builds don't start for few weeks as per RS. They're just finishing them up.

    RS stated the "build out" date is September 18 for 2015 MY. The factory starts up September 21 for the 2016s. That was the latest and greatest information available. The factory probably has any number of 300s, lesser Chargers and Challengers to finish up for the model year. we know that Sublime is done, and one of the blacks as well. Congratulations to all who get their 2015 choice of cars, and regrets to TIG and others who ended up waiting until this year.

    there was some frantic D1 activity going on: HC.org listed nearly 45 D1 assignments around 8/12- 8/19.

    Now the challenge (r) is getting them all built before the self imposed last date of '15 production on 9/18.

    Soon we will be taking bets to see if the production date gets extended beyond that date....

    I'm sure the production won't stop especially since there are hardly any changes between 2015/2016. Just a matter of what model year the car is called and the VIN used.

    I could see them putting the updated radio in some of the 2015s.

    HANG IN THERE!

    I had almost given up all hope of a 2015 Challenger A8. Out of the blue, got a VIN on 7/15 went to D1 and was built on Tuesday 9/2 passed inspection yesterday waiiting on ETA to dealer. RS said are on target to complete 400 in the backlog by the 18th. They must have some good visibility into the supply chain (meaning they have tranny's etc) to be cranking them out at this rate. They appear to have built quite a few this week.
