2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger SRT Hellcat Orders Suspended Temporarily

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan Dodge dealers have stopped taking orders for the hot 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat muscle cars due to "unprecedented demand," FCA US confirmed for Edmunds on Monday.

"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," the company said in a statement.

There is no official word on when dealers will resume taking orders.

Demand for the 707-horsepower cars has exceeded expectations, although at the time the Challenger Hellcat debuted, Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge and SRT brands vowed to "build a Challenger Hellcat for every customer who wants one."

Dodge and SRT received more than 4,500 orders for the new 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat in just the first five days after orders opened in September, the company said at the time.

The Hellcats are built in Brampton, Ontario.

Key competitors to the Challenger SRT Hellcat include the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500.

The Charger Hellcat's competitors include the Chevrolet SS and Ford Taurus SHO.

Edmunds says: Prospective buyers of these hot cars should stay in touch with their dealers on when order-taking will resume.
