“Due to unprecedented demand for the 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcats, we are temporarily restricting orders while we validate current orders that are in the system,” the company tells FoxNews.com.
In February, the automaker publicly chastised dealers for ordering more Hellcats than the actual number of committed buyers.
“Dodge dealers will receive Hellcat scheduling based on their total Dodge sales in the previous 90 days with verified customer sold orders,” Gualberto Ranieri, FCA US senior vice president of communications, said in a blog posted Feb. 27. “An isolated number of dealers have taken a far greater number of orders than they could reasonably expect to fulfill under the above allocation system.”
For now, there’s no official date when orders will resume, but according to AllParNews, it could be as late as August before Dodge catches up.
