Why Don't More Hellcats Have the Tan Interior?

    It seems like 95% of Hellcats have black interiors. The tan looks so good just wondering why more don't come with it. The red also looks super sporty but I get why that might not be for everybody.

    I love the Sepia, but decided I wanted the car to look sinister with all black. BTW the Sepia look beautiful with Granite Crystal. My next one might have Sepia

    I wanted the tan but my wifey was dead set against it. Luckily for her the car I ordered was taking too long and I found one 600 miles away, fully loaded but with the black interior.

    The Sepia is a weird color. Not tan and not red. If it were a true tan or a true red I may have considered it.

    I like the Sepia, but I wasn't sure how it will hold up over the years....

    With certain colors it looks good, (black,granite) but it's just too orange for my taste. If it were a little darker, I'd of probably gone for it. A nice dark burgundy like I've seen on some other makes. I have the red, and love it. To each his own.

    Was on my original order that sent me to VON HELL.

    The dealer stock I found and purchased was ordered with a stock black interior :(

    I like the Sepia a lot but am concerned with discoloration over time due to things rubbing against the seats, such as damp jeans, etc.

    Several possible reasons:

    1. Most people who buy Challengers in any trim level do so because they like the "retro" look of the original Challenger. I cannot recall any muscle cars from the 70's that had anything other than a black cloth or black vinyl interior.

    2. Owners spend a considerable amount of money on their Hellcats and likely take in to consideration what the future resale value may be. Sepia, IMHO, is an acquired taste and may affect future desirability even though the combinations of Sepia with any color makes the car "unique". It's kind of like the desirability of a brown / tan Corvettes, Mercedes, Porsche, etc. Those are pretty hard to sell.

    3. All of this being said, I had a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Silver with caramel / Black interior and really loved the car. Unfortunately, a herd of Michigan deer broadsided the left side of the car and I unloaded it after it was fixed. I just bought a 2015 Jeep GC SRT Billet Silver with Sepia Laguna and love the car. It gets many compliments. For me, it's like good Scotch Whiskey, an acquired taste! (FWIW, Sepia was never a consideration for my Hellcat.)

    I know, sometimes damp jeans are unavoidable when ladies ride in these thing!;)

    I get lots of compliments on my Sepia. It breaks up the all black interior as well. Mainly got it because it is cooler...temp wise...during the hot SoCal summers.:cool:

    Before I looked at my PCP Challenger i looked at a 2016 B5 Blue with the black hood and BM wheels with the Sepia interior. It was all different shades and the sepia interior did not go well with that color. IMO the Sepia interior should go with Black, Silver and maybe a red car. It might look good if they ever come out with Hemi Orange in this car.
