    I just picked up my Hellcat today and I love the sunroof however I was wondering was anything done to the car to stiffing it up or did they just drop the thing in there?

    No clue at this point, but the likelyhood is the sunroof was redesigned.

    Where did you pick the car up from?

    If you know could you tell me about how much head room was sacrificed for the sunroof? I'm 6ft and sometimes depending on the car my head is 2-3 inches away from the roof with a sunroof.
    But I'm sorry Im not sure if there was extra supports added to the hellcats sunroof. Tho I would assume it was apart of why there was such a delay on the release.

    I like sunroofs on vehicles that are dark (don't like the contrast of a black rectangle)

    Sunroof removes about 1 - 1 1/2 inches of headroom.

    Does it really because to be honest when the glass is closed its a little bit taller than the roof liner ... From the liner to the glass is about an inch if anything I would think it gives me more room not less. Infact I can't see how it gives you less I'll post a picture soon.

    I bought the car at peel Chrysler in Mississauga Ontario Canada ... 5 min from the plant. My friends all work there so it's kinda cool it's like my buddies built me a car.

    well the delay has to be 1 of 2 reasons....1 structural or 2 couldnt handle 198mph

    since some people still claim body dents from hard acceleration(a claim thats been around since 2011) i have to think it was structural.......especially since the charger didnt have the delay issue and goes 204mph

    no explanation on why is not a good thing....they are hiding something...otherwise they would just say why?

    i loved my sunroof on my 2011.....i wish i could have gotten one....i do enjoy the better head room...my head would skim the top of the ceiling on my 2011...i have like 5" on my 2015....im guess much of it is the seats sit lower.......im 6' and like to sit very straight up
