    2017 Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Production Numbers Hit the Net

    2017 Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Production Numbers Hit the Net-dsc_0867-jpg

    Production numbers for the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat have arrived online and while they are not official numbers, the lack of official numbers of a particular trimline leaves us to rely on these unofficial numbers for the 707 horsepower Mopar muscle car – just like we have done for the 2015 and 2016 model years.

    Before getting into the production totals for the 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the 2017 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, I want to explain the source of these numbers. These numbers come from a member of the forum Hellcat.org who goes by the name PLMCRZY, and he has posted the accepted Hellcat production numbers for each of the 3 model years. He doesn’t explain where he got the information and these numbers are neither official nor are they officially confirmed, but they are the only Hellcat production numbers available.

    FCA will occasionally reference sales totals for a model like the Hellcat cars, but the company (and other automakers) do not offer a detailed breakdown of sales units for a particular trimline. FCA will announce how many Challengers and Chargers they sell in 2017, but the company is unlikely to announce production numbers specifically for the Hellcat Challenger for the 2017 model year. Because of that lack of official information, we have been forced to rely on unofficial numbers gathered by a source which is believed to be reliable.

    It should be noted that FCA would not confirm these numbers (just like they would not for the 2015 and 2016 model years), but an insider who asked to remain unnamed told me that “the totals sound about right”, and this is a person who likely knows the actual numbers.

    So the bottom line is that these are not official numbers, but the numbers from PLMCRZY have been accepted as accurate over the past few years, so these are likely the only production numbers that we will get for the 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger in their SRT Hellcat forms.

    2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Production
    For the 2017 model year, Dodge built 2,976 examples of the Hellcat Challenger, with 735 having the 6-speed manual transmission and the other 2,241 are equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission. Pitch Black (640 units) was the most popular color for the 2nd year in a row, Destroyer Grey (365) was 2nd, Yellow Jacket (355) was 3rd, White Knuckle (328) was 4th and Go Mango (298 – shown above) was 5th. The least popular color for the 2017 Hellcat Challenger was Maximum Steel for the 2nd year in a row, with just 41 units built.
