2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Production Numbers Surface
First, the production numbers discussed here are not official figures from Dodge or the Chrysler Group, but they come from a chart that appears to have been created for the enthusiast community Hellcat.org by member PLMCRZY. That site is chock full of great information on both Hellcat cars and with some staff members of the site having obvious insider access to non-public records, I am inclined to believe these numbers to be true.
They might not be the official final production numbers for the 2015 Hellcat Challenger and I’ve not found a similar post on that website discussing Hellcat Charger production numbers, but I believe that this information accurately depicts the current production totals for the 707hp Challenger.
2015 Hellcat Challenger Production Totals
According to the folks at Hellcat.org, there have been 7,168 examples of the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat built since late last year. Of those, 3,748 were fitted with the heavy duty 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission while the other 3,420 had the 6-speed manual transmission.
Sublime was the most popular color overall for the 2015 Hellcat Challenger while also being the most popular among automatic transmission models with Black being the most popular color choice among manual transmission models. The least popular exterior color for the Hellcat Challenger in 2015 was Jazz Blue with just 243 built and while that color was also the least popular among manual transmission cars, automatic transmission Hellcat buyers picked B5 Blue the least often – but that is likely because B5 was a late availability color.

2015 Charger Hellcat Production
In picking through the posts on Hellcat.org, I haven’t been able to find similar information for the Hellcat Charger, but those in the know suggest that production numbers for the sedan could be in the 1,000 range. The Charger production started later than the Challenger and because of the insane popularity of the Hellcat Challenger, the Charger production was greatly reduced. Even though the sedan could outsell the coupe, Dodge has been unable to roll out 707hp Chargers at a high enough rate to fill the long list of orders.
Even without strong Charger Hellcat numbers, the Challenger figures alone are impressively high. There were rumors when the Hellcat Challenger was introduced which insisted that just a few thousand would be made, but we know that no less than 7,100 units were built. With numbers these high, Dodge will almost certainly announce the official figures for 2015 Hellcat production – at which point we will make any revisions that are needed along with reporting the production numbers for the most powerful sedan in the world.
