    For my own interest and for all those who are not going to get a 2015 Hellcat, I have been trying to find out any Rumours about potential changes to the 2016 model. So here's what I found out from my searches:

    Interior - some changes to the dash materials
    Lighting - some different fog lights down low on the front
    Handling - some teaks to improve the cornering
    Power - Engine still 707hp
    A8 Tranny - changes to the software, target pull 0-60 in 3.3 secs

    Not huge changes, but particularly for those targetting the A8 transmission, there might be smiles a a few faces. Also, again this is internet rumours, but it also mentions 2016 being the last model year for the Hellcats.

    Silly. Why would they stop making a hot car? None of these are confirmed by Dodge and so not really worth speculating on. They will make every last Hellcat they can sell.

    More rumor:
    Chrysler is being limited by governing body due to EPA/fuel consumption.
    My dealer said something about them not being able to order SRT or and V8 Jeep Grand Cherokees as a result of too many thirsty hellcats.

    BTW, going by internet rumors, each and every single model year of the Challenger since 2008 was going to be "the last model year".

    I think color changes (for Spring) and maybe a sticker package will the largest difference between 2015 and 2016. Outside of the Technical Service Bulletins, I don't think you'll see any changes mechanically.

    rumour has it that CANADIAN cars will be delivered in 2016 but only the ones that were sold in 2014. If you ordered in 2015 you're gonna have too wait some more.

    Oh YA if GM and FCA end up merging the whole model will be scrapped.

    If they don't improve customer relations and communications RUMOUR has it there will be NO CUSTOMERS LEFT
