    Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Subject to Deep Discounts Right Now

    Dodge Hellcat Challenger, Charger Subject to Deep Discounts Right Now-2017_hellcat_challenger_go_mango-jpg

    If you have been dreaming of buying a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger with the 707hp Hellcat Hemi, now could be the time for you to score your supercharged muscle car, as both used and new-old-stock prices have gotten to their lowest points since these Mopar muscle cars were released for 2015.

    As a Hellcat owner, I am an active participant in the online community and through the social media networks, I often see people posting about smokin’ deals on Hellcat Challengers and Chargers. Believe it or not, as well as the Hellcat cars have sold over the past 3 years, there are still some new 2016 models sitting at dealerships around the country. Of course, there are still 2017 models at dealers as well and over the past few months, the 2018 models have begun reaching showrooms as well. Discounts could be also due to October 2017 declining sales.

    With 2018 models arriving, dealers want to get rid of the 2017s and they really want to get rid of any 2016s, and that desire to move these “older” models leads to deep discounts. For example, some dealerships are advertising well-appointed 2016 Hellcat Challengers online for as low as the $54k range, which is $10-15k less than MSRP (depending on the options and such). It does seem that the 2016 Challengers are more readily available, but there are still come 2016 Hellcat Chargers available at new car dealerships and while there seem to be smaller discounts on the sedans, there are dealers right now advertising discounts of $5,000 and up.

    Used Prices Dropping
    Over the course of the past year, it seemed as though most used Hellcat Challengers and Chargers being advertised for sale online were listed very near their MSRP. In many cases, people were still asking – and getting – around $65k for a car that cost a touch over $70k when new, but that has changed over the past few months.

    As the 2016, 2017 and 2018 models are all on the same lots and dealers have slashed 2016 pricing well into the $50k range, the used car market has been pushed down into the low-50s and high-40s. Figure that if you can buy a new 2016 Hellcat Challenger or Charger with a dozen miles for $55,000 you aren’t going to consider paying mid-50s for a similar car with 10,000 miles. As a result, used prices have been pushed down into the $40k range, so if you are interested in a used Hellcat, those prices have dropped to all-time lows as well.

    I noticed this in my car shopping. Some really good deals on new hellcats. I won't consider them because of the gas guzzler tax and huge increase in my insurance bill though. If I get my Scat Pack Charger like I'm supposed to, I'll be a happy camper.

    Used is the way to go. Let someone else get hit with that tax and the depreciation.
