Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcat Shoppers: Now is the Time to Buy

If you have been waiting for a great deal on a Dodge Challenger or Charger in the SRT Hellcat trim, you aren’t likely to find a better deal than you will right now.


Right now, if you buy a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat or Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, you can save anywhere from $7,070 to $7,970 on the purchase, thanks to the Dodge Power Dollars program. Announced earlier this month, Power Dollars gives buyers $10 per horsepower off of the purchase of any new Challenger or Charger, and with the Hellcat models offering power levels ranging from 707 to 797 – they come with the biggest discounts under this wonderful program.

When you factor in the Power Dollars discounts, the prices of the Dodge Challenger and Charger in Hellcat trim have never been this low, and that is leading to a surge in sales based on social media group traffic. Of course, with all of the trim levels being subject to this discount program, this is a great time to buy a new Challenger or Charger with any of the engines, but right now, you can save almost $8,000 on the 797-horsepower Redeye.

Dodge Charger Discount Pricing
If you are looking to buy a 2019 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat right now, you can save $7,070 on the 707 horsepower super sedan. The supercharged Charger has a base price of $65,795, which rises to $68,990 when you add the $1,700 Gas Guzzler Tax and the $1,400 Destination Charge. With Power Dollars, that base price is pulled down to $61,920, before adding any options.

That price does not include the Navigation Group or the Harman Kardon Audio Group, which add $995 and $1,795, respectively. Adding them lifts the discounted pricing to $64,710, while really giving you the premium Hellcat experience and leaving onto the sunroof and appearance upgrades inside and out to be added.

Along the same lines, if the 485-horsepower Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack is more your speed, you can save $4,850 right now. With the base price of the Scat Pack sedan being $41,740 with destination, the Power Dollars program brings the price down to $36,890. If the Scat Pack Challenger is more your taste, you can get into one of those for the same $36,890 right now.

Dodge Challenger Pricing
Next up, the entire Dodge Challenger lineup is subject to the Power Dollars program as well, so the 717- and 797-horsepower Hellcat models come with the biggest possible discounts. The “standard” Hellcat Challenger with 717 horsepower comes with a discount of $7,170 while the Hellcat Redeye has 797 horsepower, so the discount for the most powerful production road car in America is $7,970.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with the 717-horsepower supercharged Hemi and the 6-speed manual transmission starts at $62,440 with Gas Guzzler Tax and destination charges, but with the Power Dollars discount, you can get into one for just $55,270. That is crazy cheap for a car of this magnitude.

Finally, if you have been dreaming about owning the most powerful American production road car ever, the 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye can be purchased for $65,470. That is the $70,245 base price plus the $1,700 Gas Guzzler Tax and the $1,495 Destination Charge, minus the $7,970 discount for Power Dollars.

An Early Impact
While I don’t have any concrete sales numbers yet, activity in social media groups show that people are buying Dodge Challengers and Chargers right now. In the largest Hellcat-based Facebook groups, there has been an influx of new members who purchased their supercharged Mopar machine due to the program while there have also been many long-time members who used the Power Dollars program to trade in their previous Hellcat on a new model.

Bottom line – if you are looking to buy a Dodge Challenger or Charger SRT Hellcat, you aren’t likely to ever seen a lower price than you will right now.
