    My 2016 allocation finally opened today. I spec'd out a hellcat charger, but not able to order a sunroof???? Anyone know what's wrong??? My 2015 HC charger has a sunroof.

    Thanks!!!

    I was told by my dealer's Chrysler rep that there were problems with the "latches" so no power sunroof available on the 2016 Chargers. I, however, find this odd though as you can get them on the Challengers. I am waiting on clarification from the dealer and will post here if I get anything else back.

    I just read a bunch of responses about this topic. I guess I'm going to keep my 2015 HC then. Really wanted a white one, but beggars cant be choosers...

    THANKS!!!!

    I don't have a sunroof in my HC and I do not miss it. I have never had a car with a sunroof that was not a problem. Having a nice quiet roof, that has more headroom, is a nice benefit.

    FCA told me that the 2016 Charger was over weight and was beyond EPA weight restrictions. So no sunroof. My 2015 order had a sunroof and I was pissed the 2016 didn't have this as an option...

    2015 they gave the sunroofs to the Chargers. For 2016 they gave the sunroofs to the Challengers. They just can't make that many roofs at once :)

    At time of order I was unable to get a sunroof in my 15 Charger.

    the current status will certainly change as will the wind direction

    Linda's 2015 Charger was one of the very first built and has the sun roof, so far no issues but we are keeping an eye on the roof panel for any ripples that may develop due to the flexing, we have seen this on some challengers.

    So I finally heard back today about the status of the sunroof for the Chargers. Apparently it is a potential possibility as a late availability option. This is from the same rep I mentioned earlier. He did mention that he didn't want to give me any false hope regarding ordering a Charger with one. He stated that if I really want a sunroof I need to go with the Challenger. So basically, 99% chance there are no sunroofs for MY2016 Chargers.

    ***************************************************************************************************************************

    This really puts me in a bind and I'm stuck now. My dealership has an allocation. I have dibs on it but have to decide by tomorrow. The choices are:

    1. Fully loaded Challenger with a sunroof.

    2. Attempt to change the allocation to a Charger, rep said a dealer swap may be possible, but go without a sunroof.

    3. Go with a slightly used <2,000 miles 2015 Charger that is 100% the way I want it as it has a sunroof.

    Oh, and to complicate things I have a Hellcat discount voucher because I was in VON Hell ... grrrr. Oh, and to top things off, the Hellcat may only be a 3 year run and who knows what cool colors and options may be available for MY 2017.

    So not having a sunroof is a 100% deal breaker? I got a 2015 Challenger, so sunroof for me. On my previous car i had one and never used it. Maybe you can contact Resumespeed on here he should know something.

    I had a 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 with all the options including the sunroof and really enjoyed it. It was my daily driver and I would use the sunroof frequently. I guess I just want to be able to have all the options. I don't know yet if it truly is a deal breaker for me or not. I'll sleep on it and hope I know in the morning. ;)

    Well you must be happy with your purchase and you actually get to use yours. Here in Florida either it's too hot or it's raining.
