considering the competition with GM and Ford, that one single thing could IMO go a LONG way toward both building morale for the loyal, as well as bringing in a good chunk of those who are also shopping the competition. most people IMO probably are leery of what vehicle salespeople tell them. to have headquarters in collusion with that via refusing to confirm or deny allocation availability just plain sucks. I've always got the sense that the main reason for that by the Big Three is to move the lesser versions of the car. I'd also suggest that those who might opt for the lesser version under the pressure of waiting for months on end with no idea if they'll for sure get their target vehicle are probably those who it's most difficult to afford the Big Dog version, which makes it even worse.Did not get into that specifically but I have heard there appears to be 2 systems, one for Canada another for the US. Dodge did not open allocations here till 9/9/14. Some dealers took deposits earlier, but there was no allocations for us prior to 9/9. Tim did specifically state that my dealer did have that allocation so it will be built, some dealers may never get one for 2015 model year. Sorry I don't have more for you.
at the same time, I'd most definitely give Dodge props if they are in any way making a valid attempt to do something about exorbitant ADMs. I'm one of those who doesn't freak about a markup of perhaps $5K, but seeing $20K+ markups is obscene. we do have what's predominantly a 'free market' economy without which we might well not see anything the likes of a HELLCAT. but at some point, for example as is the case with oligopolies and monopolies, there ought to be protection of the public.
if you really got a direct call from Kuniskis that says good things about Dodge too. that surprises the hell out of me.
congrats on the impending build and thanks for the thread.
