Challenger SRT Hellcat allocation based on the total of Dodge vehicles sold by a dealer

Article by Christian A., on September 15, 2014

The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is available to order and it seems that Chrysler aims to change its normal allocation methods for its dealers. How? Well, it’s quite simple! The Challenger SRT Hellcat allocation is now based on the number of Dodge vehicles sold by a dealer in the previous 180 days.

These words came from Tim Kuniskis a.k.a. Dodge chief, who also added that in December the company will make a second allocation calculation based on the sales in the previous 90 days.

According to Kuniskis, if dealers sell lots of Darts, Durangos or Journeys, they will get the rights to sell the Challenger SRT Hellcat too as this is the halo car of the brand. Dodge will also measure the number of days that Challenger SRT Hellcat models sit on dealer’s lot in order to determine how many units the dealer gets.

If you still don’t know, the 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat is priced at $59,995 which means that the vehicle is actually cheaper and more powerful than the 2015 Dodge Viper even with the $15,000 price cut.

What’s more important is that the Challenger SRT Hellcat uses a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 Hellcat that was rated at an impressive 707 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque.

In addition, this model is offered exclusively with 20-inch Slingshot split-seven spoke wheels with a matte black finish but also with 20-inch lightweight forged-aluminum wheels with a Brass Monkey/dark bronze finish.

Due to the impressive output delivered by the engine, the vehicle gets the largest front-brake package ever offered on a SRT vehicle, a pair of 390 mm Brembo two-piece rotors with six-piston calipers.
