I found this mildly amusing, you may or may not, especially if you're local or otherwise looking to buy.

This is the exact car I ordered from this dealer, put a deposit on and eventually walked after the salesman/dealership started acting cute when I asked questions. I was concerned about MSRP increases, ADM (this was at PEAK stupidity last year) and other reasonable questions that had me concerned after hearing horror stories from other folks, along the lines of, "hey the car you ordered is in, here's why we can't sell it to you for what's on the purchase order..." It's relatively low optioned (especially compared to the one I ended up buying from Koon's) but when it came in a couple of months ago my salesman called to tell me that my car was in...and I actually considered buying it anyway but didn't wanna tie up full MSRP, which is what they were asking, at $80, 200.

I told my salesman that I wasn't interested, making sure to wait until after the weekend was over (it showed up first thing Friday morning) so they'd be stuck with it for at least that long. :ROFLMAO: I checked the website and it was several weeks before it was offered for sale, no doubt they were calling around trying to see who they could gouge for it, but they finally ended up listing it for the window sticker price; $80,200. Made sense to me...

It wasn't listed for long (less than 2 weeks maybe?) before it disappeared. That was until yesterday, when a friend of mine texted me a photo and asked me if that was the car I ordered. It sure looked like it and I checked the VIN and sure enough it was, except now it has almost 1K miles on it and by some miracle, its MSRP has gone from $80,200 to $91,989...but don't worry, they're discounting it $11,998 for a "sale" price of $79,991.

So anyone interested in "saving" $209 on a previously titled/used, standard body/low optioned Challenger Hellcat...here's your chance! :p $92K used Hellcat.png

I was going to say that it has no options.

I ordered it very basic with standard stereo, black painted hood, Brass Monkey wheels and blackout package and the plus/convenience packages with black calipers. The one I ended up buying from Koon's is loaded in comparison, I just get a kick out of the math gymnastics and how they're figuring it's MSRP is now magically $92K...

For the life of me I can’t understand why a manufacturer or dealership would antagonize their client base, especially in the midst of changing a major platform, if it backfires on them they can only blame themselves. Probably shouldn’t have used (backfires) we all know electric cars can’t back fire unless they have engineered that into the canned Fratzonic software sound package.

Dealers are very unsure about their future so they're trying to make as much as they can right now.

Hellcats have a lot of stuff standard. Besides radio what else would you want?

Challengers have less standard equipment than the Chargers.

This is the one I built to order so I obviously optioned it the way I wanted to at the time, the one I ended up getting from Koon's had the HK stereo "upgrade" (which is HOT garbage...but anyway), sunroof (which I REALLY didn't want...but anyway again...), Laguna leather and painted (orange) calipers...which look SICK in my opinion.

By NOT buying this one and buying through Koon's, and taking into account the $1600 I spent to have it shipped my relatively loaded smoke show I saved nearly $4K (which also includes not have to pay the local/city tax, I only had to pay AZ state sales tax).

The only thing on your list I would want is the HK stereo which you ended up upgrading so you didn't need it. Our Challenger has the Alpine and that is hot garbage and way better then what my 13 mustang had. I don't care for the smooth leather or sunroof

I still will say my HK sounds great in my TAXI. The Beats sounded great in the Daytona also

I don't know what the deal is with the sounds in the Challenger. Real crap. Charger is so much better and the Ram is the best of all. They're all standard systems.

I didn't order a stereo with this build because I figured I'd save the $2K and be able to build out a MUCH better stereo for the same, or likely less, money. I had the choice of several different new Hellcats when I bought mine from Koon's and I'm more than happy with the one that I ended up getting...

It's worth noting that this same dealer is getting ZERO Hellcat allocations for MY '23 so this one was literally the only new Hellcat they've gotten in quite some time. They had a used one that I test drove late last summer that was a steaming pile of shit. '16 M6 (which was awesome of course, but anyway...) with 45K miles that at some point had the seats swapped out...with R/T seats. I got in a nearly heated argument with the same scumbag salesman that they were NOT the factory seats and were missing the "S". I Googled interior pictures of that exact car and showed him and he shrugged it off. CarFax showed it was a factory buyback for a laundry list of issues so I HARD passed on that one.

Speaking of handshakers, they have a '16 M6 GoMango with 40K miles for an undisclosed price...I thought I saw it priced @ $65K which wouldn't surprise me, since it's also the window sticker price. CarFax shows SIX owners apparently. There's no pictures on the dealer website, but TrueCar is showing pictures that were definitely taken there. It's a widebody...? I'm perplexed because neither the window sticker or the way I read the buildsheet reflect that...

The market is definitely starting to cool off and there are deals to be made...these guys haven't gotten the memo and are just looking to gouge for everything they can get...some may call it capitalism, but in a small town I call it a non-sustainable business model...

The WB wasn’t an option in 2016. I believe it began with the 2018 Demons???

That's what I thought but the pictures clearly show that it's a widebody...given the factory buyback they tried to pass off and the fact they're not getting any MY 23 Hellcats, this 6 owner apparent widebody should be priced by them accordingly...I can't wait to see what they want for it...

Cloth seats get heat only. Cloth is a deal breaker for me. $70k+ with rental car seats? Nope.

Sounds like this dealership lost allocation because they don't know how to sell Hellcats. I'm sure this will be traded to another dealership and discounted for real.
