In the realm of problems, this is a good one to have: Dodge has had to restrict new orders of the Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat until it can fill existing orders, because too many people want to buy the 707-horsepower cars.
That’s right, in 2015, and despite a small recall issue for a fire risk, there are so many people who want to buy a crazy-powerful American muscle car that Dodge just can’t keep up. That’s awesome.
As an FCA spokesperson told Motor Authority, “Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system.”
You can read between the lines a little if you must, but that’s a pretty plain statement: the Hellcats are selling like hellcakes.
