    I presently have a sublime 2015 Dodge Hellcat with 1100 miles on it. Yesterday I went into a local dealer and ordered a 2016 Plum Crazy Hellcat. The Cars are the same except the 2016 that I ordered I am getting with a Sun Roof, Black Hood, Monkey Wheels and Summer tires all of which the 2015 did not have. The cost difference between the trade and the 2016 is $5,200 which I think is a good deal. I am number 3 on there order list so I expect the order to go in in November/December with delivery in January or February.
    living in Wisconsin I store the car in the Garage for the winter so February for me is just fine

    Excellent info, thanks for posting. I think that's a fantastic deal; your dealer must know someone ready to pay big $$$ for that sublime car.

    Not much depreciation at all. When I was looking at that Viper, the dealer was going to give me 72k for the car. I paid 63k. I know dealers can move numbers, but it's good hear.

    Knowing how Dodge treated its customers canceling the last 900 orders, all you did was help your dealer sell your car twice and screw you twice! Once for giving up a hot car that can be enjoyed right now, secondly when you are hellcatless and have to wait on a new car that you might not get.

    If you really wanted a plum crazy sun roof, why not order the new car "have it delivered " in your hot hands, then trade in your current hellcat.

    To each his own. If I owned a dealership I would love customers like you.

    You really think your getting your hellcat in January/February? Really?

    I'm not being a troll, just seeing the truth.

    If you love your hellcat you shouldn't have sold it. If you hated the color, then I would have waited until the new one came in before selling it.

    And your helping how?
    If you had a thought you wanted to express I'm sure you could have couched your words without coming across as antagonistic. Surely that was not your intention..

    While it was not communicated in an articulate manner, I agree. I would not trade or sell my hellcat until the other was at the dealer. I am thinking about a reorder for 2016, but I will not let one go until the other is guaranteed.

    You did have some valid points. I would have a hard time waiting as well having already tasted the cheek hurting grin that is the Hellcat!

    You're working under the assumption that the issues with MY'15 will continue into MY'16.

    You know what they say about assumptions; they make an.........I'm sure you can finish the rest.

    I doubt the issues continue.
