Finally got an answer on allocation

32547 320
According to the head cheese himself (TK), dealers are only getting 1 allocation a month for sold orderds for hellcat's regardless of whether it is a challenger or charger. Until the backlog from summer orders goes down that is the process they are following.

At least it is an answer (not one I like)

That doesn't make sense at all, especially for Chargers. They couldn't even be ordered last summer yet a handful are being delivered. I ordered my Charger on 2/13 and the dealer had 3 allocations. I'm in the VON/BX holding pattern too. My car was ordered as a sold car. I hope I live long enough to see it.

He was very clear that they have continued to tweak the process and are now focused on clearing the backlog. Actually it is a very sound move to get the elephant through the snake. Again, since I ordered a charger the change doesn't help me, but I suspect they are ramping up production to get the sold orders through.

Yes, yes. This information has been known. If this answers the question of no matter what volume value a dealer sold the last 90-days, plus the other 2 pieces of the criteria, does that mean even those dealers STILL only receive one allocation per month until further notice....at least until Chrysler gets caught up on summer/fall 2014 sold-orders?

He was very specific: One allocation a month for sold orders regardless of car. Not a whole lot of gray on that. He said stick with them because they will revisit as they clear backlog.

Have we really seen proof that they are working to clear backlog?
I've heard the same thing now for the last couple weeks, but doesn't seem to be many stale VONs turning green to VIN's unless I missed something?

Not one you like, I ordered back in Sept got a VIN & still waiting. Do like the rest of us get in line and wait. I personally feel they should not take any orders until all previous ones filled, but that is my opinion.

Completely understandable. I'm on the other side of the fence. Ordered 2/13 with a Chrysler vehicle replacement for my 2015 392. I hope they don't work them first in first out!!

I do not think that TK talked to you, there is a troll going around in this forum and he told me that I was going to get a call from TK (sure). That never happened. Plus, one allocation per month per car? Or one allocation and that is it? I do not believe SRT or Dodge anymore.

do you believe dodge will or can deliver that many with roughly 2400 dealers? when they have only built 2300 in the first 6 months?

Abe, remember there are stipulations to obtaining that 1 allocation as Resume Speed has outlined. Not all 2400 will get an allocation. I imagine with how many are marking these up and have them sitting on lots, the 2400 number you quote will be greatly reduced.

Also if they have one in KZ status they do not obtain the 1 allocation either, if I remember correctly.

Here is his note in whole:

Mr. XXXX –


This is correct – presently, a dealer can obtain scheduling for 1 sold order per month.


This was done to try to fill the sold orders for customers that have been waiting for many months.


We have modified the allocation system multiple times since launch in an attempt to fill as many legitimate sold orders as possible.


Once we “catch-up” to the demand and satisfy some of the sold orders that have been waiting many months, we will look at making adjustments that could increase the maximum schedule number.


I know this isn’t the response you were looking for – but if you can hang-in there while we catch-up to the demand, I promise you won’t be disappointed with the product.

I am confused on this information now though after seeing RS post it a while ago, and now you passing on this info from TK himself. Here are my question:

Scenario A: By 1 allocation per month, for a Challenger or Charger, does TK/FCA mean 1 NEWLY ENTERED sold order entered into the system for future build??
OR
Scenario B: Each dealer gets 1 allocation a month to receive ONE of the sold orders it currently has backlogged in the system that was ordered between Sept-Jan??

If Scenario A: That would mean dealers are not getting allocations for the orders entered into the system prior to February and FCA is just going to start pumping them out and sending them to the dealers (which would mean they are just going to show up in the system one day as getting built/invoiced/shipped)??? Up until now I believe they entered order, got allocation, watched that one allocation in the system until it showed up.

If Scenario B: Bad news, means there are going to be A LOT of folks with ordered cars who WON'T get one as that is only 7 cars left, approximately, for a dealer the rest of MY15. And since they don't make 2400 or so cars a month, not all dealers will be getting that one car every month.

I tried to make these questions as clear as I could, will try and explain more if needed. Regardless, I think which way it is moving forward needs to be answered.

look at the production track record of what they have built each month thus far... unless something changes in a HUGE way there is going to be lots if unhappy buyers this year.. we are exactly half way thru the 2015 M.Y.'s production that runs thru Sept with only 2500 or so total hellcats built

"He" sent that letter to many people in this forum. Do not believe everything that you see. As I stated before, there is a troll in this forum and probably in the other Challenger forums as well confusing people and telling lies.
I will believe this when it happens, as of today, it is not happening. Therefore, it is a lie or incorrect.

I'm not disagreeing with that. Just pointing out your number was incorrect. Not all dealers will get allocation.

This was typed while I was drafting my first response. This information would imply Scenario B from my post. However, this logic doesn't make sense to me. How do they manage to fill the massive backlog of cars, many at the same dealerships, by only giving a dealership ONE car a month. That would mean if a dealer has 5-6 orders placed on Sept 9 not filled yet, FCA will not "catch-up" to this backlog until the end of the MY15

Little confused here, if you are saying I am a troll just say it. I put up what I was sent, you don't have to like it, but it is what he sent me today. If you notice I didn't say he called me but responded to an email.

I really want to believe it is scenario A + you only get one new order a month, but I don't know.
