    Could it be possible that this car only comes with one Red Key and one Black Key?
    I will pick up my Challenger in a few days and this is apparently how it is sold. As the Black is kind of useless and gimmicky, I would have thought 2 Reds and one Black. Oh yes, I am in Canada. Is this how the cars are sold?
    First post and sorry if it has been asked before.

    Is it brand new OP? If so, 2 red and one black. If its used and sold at the dealer and they're telling you that you only get 1 red and 1 black, demand another red key because they're expensive and need to be programed to the car.

    It is a brand new 2016 ordered in December 2015 with 6 miles. The dealer insists this is how it comes. ONE Red and ONE Black. Could this be a Canadian or 2016 thing like the lesser warranty they give us compared to the US?
    I cannot find any info from Chrysler either agreeing or refuting this, and there is nothing on the sticker saying what it ships with.

    I received 2 red with my 2016 but I'm in the states. Maybe it is a Canadian thing. I'm guessing it's mainly your dealer. Let us know what you find out. Maybe someone else out there only got one red key but I have my doubts.

    I may have answered my own question. It would appear you get ONE Red key and ONE useless Black one. This seems to be a Canadian and/or 2016 thing. The latest Canadian Challenger Brochure states "Owners are handed both a red and black key fob at delivery", along with a photo showing 2 fobs. It seems quite clear you get only 2 key fobs, at least in Canada and for a 2016.
    I find it strange that no mention is made about the key fobs on the list of equipment on the window sticker

    For a 2016?
    If so, my dealer must have a bucket of red keys somewhere.

    I'm in the US but I did have a 15 Hellcat (2 red + 1 black) and I now have a 16 Hellcat (also 2 red + 1 black). I'd contact SRT or FCA directly and ask. If you go to the SRT website you'll see contact info. I'd hate to have that car and always wonder if some "YoYo" out their had my other key and my address, if so it would be very easy for that person to drive off in the car. PLUS, like already stated, the keys are very expensive.

    Good luck OP!

    sounds fishy. demand both red keys. makes you think if they lost the other red key or what. either way the car comes with two red keys, not one.
