Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat Have Great Lease Deals, Too
Over the past few months, we have talked a great deal about the Dodge Power Dollars program, which allows buyers to save anywhere from $7,070 to $7,970 on a Challenger or Charger packing a supercharged Hemi. The only “problem” with the Power Dollars program is that it only applies to those folks who are buying one of these cars. Power Dollars cannot be applied to a lease, but those who prefer to lease aren’t left out in the cold here, as Dodge currently has some very attractive lease programs for the 717-horsepower Hellcat Challenger and the 707-horsepower Hellcat Charger.
Now, I do understand that with many people not working due to the Covid-19 shutdowns, but since we have gotten questions about lease deals on Hellcat cars, we wanted to point these deals out to those who might want to do some new muscle car shopping while staying home.
$599 Lease on Hellcat Cars
The first great lease deal for the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat was quietly announced earlier this month. While there are restrictions and requirements which include a fairly strong credit score, it was announced that the non-Redeye Hellcat cars could be leased for $599 per month. That information was provided to me by both FCA representatives and dealership representatives.
That same program also has Scat Pack cars available for $399 per month, which is an insanely good deal for someone looking to get into a 485-horsepower Challenger or Charger on the cheap.
Again, these prices requires a high credit score and possibly a down payment when you sign the agreement, but if you aren’t looking to buy, you can get a smokin’ deal on a Hellcat or Scat Pack Challenger or Charger with the aforementioned program.
Even Cheaper Deals
Before writing this piece, I checked the Dodge website to see if there was mention of the lease pricing of $399 for Scat Packs and $599 for Hellcat. When I did so, I found that Dodge is advertising even cheaper lease deals on the consumer website. The 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody is available with a 36-month lease for $541 per month while the Hellcat Challenger has a lease price of $531 for 36 months. If you step up to the Hellcat Widebody Challenger, that 36- month lease price climbs to $583, but that is still a great price for such an impressive performance car.
It should be noted that there is no mention of any lease deals on the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye.
Again, these prices are likely to require great credit and perhaps a down payment. These deals may also vary in some places, but with dealership business being very slow right now with the Covid-19 pandemic keeping many people locked in their homes, dealerships are likely to do more to earn your business, whether you are buying or leasing.
