Anybody's else's AC weak?

Greetings from 75 and sunny Dallas, TX. Spring isn't a time you expect to need a super strong AC, yet on days like today I find myself selecting lower than desired temp, sometimes going to full LO, and fan almost at max. I cringe thinking how the AC will perform when the 100 degree Texas summer gets here. The Hellcat AC never blows super cold during the day even at max, yet at night I have to raise the selected temp all the way to 72-74 to not freeze...

Detroit usually builds awesome AC's into cars; In my z06's I would just leave the temp at 69 all the time and the climate control "just worked."

So.. this surprises me about the Hellcat AC. I wonder if mine is weak/undercharged, or if this is a design quirk and something we just have to live with for having a 700 hp car.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll head to the dealer. <cringe>
The large dark dash surface seems to fool the sensor(s) a bit in mine and a sublime 2015 R/T Scat Pack we have.
What do you mean?
There is such a large surface catching sun and holding the solar heat ( my opinion, only ) that the AC has trouble " knowing " how warm it is up there and then keeping up with the heated air.
Does this mean your interior occasionally gets warm too, or that it gets too cold because the sensor thinks it's warmer than it actually is?
Too warm at times of full son straight overhead.
Interesting. And nobody with a Hellcat has experienced summer yet........
