    Howdy all , so I've been looking at the hc for a few years and am having trouble finding one in canada that meets my specs (color) mostly. I live in a remote area so my local dealer doesn't seem interested to even try and get me one so I was going to'settle' for a 392. I've contacted a few dealers listing hc's on autotrader.ca but they are already gone. I found one dealer that would order me one at Msrp but I had till last Wednesday to order it they said bug I can still order a 392... Two questions for all here, is it worth the extra $20k Canadian dollars for the hc over the 392 and does anyone know if it's too late to order a 2016 in canada?

    Thanks all

    It is worth as much as you are willing to pay.

    It is a blast to drive!

    I'm from the Greater Toronto Area, I just got my HC about 2 weeks ago. I traded my 392 Shaker for it. I ordered my HC end of January and got it May 12. Both cars are a 6 speed manual transmission. I can tell you (having opened both) that the HC is worth every penny. Its a great car and the "power delivery" is very different from the 392. The HC has a lot of torque down low that you can really feel.

    Not sure when you are but my dealer had a white one (brand new) about a week ago. It was unsold in the showroom.

    Is it worth the extra $20K ? I believe so, having owned both. Resale value also higher so
    if/when sold you'd recoup most of the $20K difference. I was told by some honest high volume
    dealers that ordering now would be unlikely to get delivery this year, but ordering from the "right" dealer, my April 23 is in D status so will hopefully get before end of June.

    There are LOTS of Hellcats on dealer lots around the GTA that do not show up on
    Dodge.ca inventory or even on dealership's websites but they are available.
    (Leftover customer orders from last year that buyer gave up on?) They may also have
    cars incoming that they will be more likely to negotiate on before they land. You also
    are less likely to get this info over the phone IMHO and experience. Got my B5 last year
    that way, slightly above msrp, but supply better this year than last.
    Above msrp? Up to you to negotiate and some dealerships likely better than others.
    I believe in going IN PERSON rather than text or email ready to buy for best results.

    What colour are you looking for?

    Thanks but I want a brand new one, right off the factory line, if anyone knows a good reputable dealer that may still order one for me in Ontario or east I'd also appreciate that info!

    I have heard down here in the states that the boys north in Canada can't handle all the power of the HC but you can get the 6 cyl version

    Charger Hellcats unsold on dealer lots in Toronto: one white and one granite crystal, both likely can be had for msrp
    if you negotiate well. I know also of a black one at a dealer typically wanting outrageous markups.
    There is a new 2015 Charger in B5 blue I know of thats been on the dealer's lot for 9 or 10 months that they may now be
    willing to let go closer to msrp.
