2019 Dodge Charger Production: 2,285 Hellcats, 128,273 Total Units
The Dodge Charger has been the bestselling full sized sedan in America for years while also being the bestselling rear-wheel-drive car sold in the United States for 2020. In some calendar years, the Ford Mustang has outsold the Charger, but 2019 will not be one of those years, making the big, sporty sedan America’s favorite rear-drive vehicle.
We will know for sure when sales numbers from around the industry come in later this week or next week, but today, we are focusing on production numbers for the 2019 model year Dodge Charger. As is generally the case, FCA doesn’t offer model year production numbers – only calendar year sales numbers – but we are in luck.
PLMCRAZY, the same community member who has been providing detailed breakdowns of Hellcat production numbers since the package was introduced for 2015, has posted production numbers for the 2019 Charger online.
In other words, these are not official numbers from the automaker, but with these being the only numbers available for 2019 Dodge Charger production numbers, numbers provided by PLMCRZY have become the trusted numbers. FCA will not confirm these numbers, but in the past, FCA officials have told me off the record that the numbers “appear to be accurate”.

In total, Dodge has produced 11,995 Hellcat Chargers for the 2015 through 2019 model years, and we can expect to see more strong numbers in 2020, thanks to the arrival of the new widebody sedan.
