    Last year while I was waiting for my 15 allocation, I hit the dodge search inventory every week in my region plus my relatives region Georgia, always came up with some HC inventory.

    Tried the same searches today, same zips to see what was out there heading into dealerships for HC shocking to find NOT ONE CAT inbound on the search, 2016 or 2015.

    Wow I'm shocked. I thought FCA was doubling production for the second year. I don't understand, maybe I was doing something wrong?

    Toolman,
    Are all the cars you listed at MSRP?

    No, they are not all at MSRP. In fact, the first 200 or so cars have markups ranging from $5000 up to $25,000. And some dealers list 2 to 5 cars available. I was at a South Jersey dealer Friday getting an oil change on my Hellcat Challenger and the dealer had 3 cars on the lot for sale, all with a $15,000 markup. When I asked why they had the markup, I was told "because these are rare special cars". I asked the salesman "If they are so rare, why do you still have 3 sitting around unsold". He walked away from me. I am willing to be that most dealers with a markup would sell at MSRP if you walked in with cash (or at least had your financing prearranged from your credit union) ready to buy on the spot.

    How many of these are actually non-sold orders? Keep in mind that sold orders show up on dealers inventory as well, but are not available as they are spoken for already. So these numbers are total cars put there but not all available.

    You are right, "sold" orders will show on dodge.com dealer inventory. On cars.com, you usually don't see sold orders, and sold orders don't show up with the markup. Many of the cars on cars.com are probably not sold orders. It still takes phone calls to the dealers to confirm availability. The cars are out there, waiting to be bought. No one in the USA should have problems getting a car at MSRP if they put a few minutes into searching. Canada, well that's a different story. I feel bad for them. No Hellcats and bad bacon.

    I placed an order for my Hellcat and now its built but still at the plant. It shows up on dealers inventory already, i am assuming it shows on other car websites. that is why i think others sold orders are in there. Once the vin is created, it pops up on dealers inventory.

    Most dealers are 5k above Msrp all day long.
    The market bears that all day long

    I ordered my car locally and got it in about 5 weeks, paying only MSRP. Great people to deal with at South Lake Motors in Rice Lake.
