The 2015 Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats are so outrageously powerful, it’s hard to imagine how many people would actually be able to purchase and drive them. And yet – Dodge has asked its dealer network to stop creating them due to overwhelming demand.
Dodge literally cannot produce the Hellcats fast enough for all of the interested consumers to buy one. These vehicles get over 700 horsepower, and yet they’re some of the most popular cars of the year.
According to a company spokesperson, Dodge is “temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system.” As frustrating as this might be for Dodge, it’s got to feel good to have underestimated than to have overestimated.

No, it isn’t a race car, but it sure does know how to act like one. Not only is the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat the most powerful muscle car in the business, it’s also the fastest.
The powerhouse vehicle was clocked by the National Hot Rod Association as completing a quarter-mile run at 125 miles per hour in 11.2 seconds. Measured using drag radials, the time dropped to just 10.8 seconds at 126 mph.
“It wasn’t long ago that a 10-second car, was a full-on race car. The new 2015 Dodge Challenger raises the bar to a level some of us never thought we’d see,” said Tim Kuniskis, president and CEO of the Dodge and SRT Brands. “With the new Challenger SRT Hellcat, we’re reaching deep into our history and bringing back the notion from the muscle car era of the street and strip dual-purpose car. Not only can Challenger run 10s on the drag strip, but you can also fit your family and drive cross country. This new 2015 Dodge Challenger is the ultimate GT muscle car.”
The 2015 Challenger SRT will arrive here at Warsaw Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram later this year. Is your family ready for this kind of racing performance on your next road trip?
