    Previous SRT owner here who sadly gave up my 2012 Charger when taking a job in England. Coming back to the US next summer and wanting a Hellcat (down payment ready to go).

    Given the long wait time, would it be a good idea to get an order in now? How would I go about that since I won't be present until next summer?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    I would wait until next ordering banks open in February, and put your deposit down then, but make sure your dealer has an allocation, if you have a dealer in mind, Cant hurt to get in touch with them and get the wheels rolling..

    Might be a good time to get one right off the lot. This kind of demand can't last forever. Or maybe they will have caught up by then and you will be able to order like any other car.

    id wait until your here next summer...odds are you will pay less than MSRP by then and dealers will have them all over the place....it will be a 2 year old model and people will be talking about the new Zl1 or GT500 and the HC will be old news.....i wouldnt bother ordering unless your looking for PCP

    My opinion. You're not in Iraq, or Afghanistan, or North Korea, so you're ahead of the game AND you have connectivity back to the US. If you want one, pull the trigger on a sure thing, organize a vacation/holiday/business trip back to the US when you have a delivery window, get over here, sign the papers, drive the shit out of it, put it in storage, go back to the UK and call it a day. The longer you wait, the longer the odds.

    Some folks that have already posted may, in fact, be spot on. Wait not, want not...just sayin'. You know what level of stress and frustration you can handle. I wish you the best of luck.

    I appreciate all the input.

    Any recommendations on dealers? Location isn't an issue - I'm looking forward to a nice road trip (that doesn't involve roundabouts).

    Now that I know the when and where of coming back to what our Alaskan friends call the lower 48 - can anybody recommend a dealer (preferably east coast/mid-atlantic area)?

    Your looking for ANY dealer that will sell at MSRP, DO NOT limit yourself to a region- good luck

    The only reason not to wait is if you want a specific color that may/may not be available when you are ready. If color is not a significant issue, I'd wait and see what is available on the floor when you are ready to go.

    I'm not particularly limited by region - quite in fact, I'd enjoy breaking the car in with a nice road trip after picking it up. I'm checking the purchasing threads regularly but is partial to a particular dealer, I'm all ears...err, eyes...err, you know what I mean.

    Plum 16, that is one heck of a fine collection you have.
