Dodge Just Jacked Up The Price Of Its Hellcats: Here's Why That's OK

As if you could ever be mad at a Hellcat...

The good news is that there will be more Hellcats in the world after Dodge decided to up production due to insane consumer demand. The bad news is that they will cost more. How much more? According to Michael Wayland of The Detroit News the price of a 2016 Challenger Hellcat will be bumped up $2,500 to $62,495 and the 2016 Charger Hellcat will see a price increase of $1,950 for a total of $65,945. Both prices don’t include taxes and other fees so expect them to come in a bit higher than the aforementioned numbers.

Why is Dodge charging more for its new models? Well, for starters it’s because the company can. People love the Hellcat in both forms and would likely tolerate price increases much higher just to get their hands on one. That being said, the fees correspond with more standard features, such as Laguna leather and better navigation equipment. Even though production is being bumped up it’ll still be damn hard to get your hands on a Hellcat, meaning you shouldn’t expect to drive one off the lot for anything close to the MSRP.
