We previously reported on the huge early demand for the Hellcat models, which are powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 putting out 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. After receiving a huge amount of orders from dealers, Dodge produced around 4,000 examples of the 2015 Hellcat models, and then announced that it would double production of Hellcats for the 2016 model year. Because some unfulfilled 2015 orders were cancelled and transferred to 2016 orders, Dodge said it will provide discounts to these buyers to make up for the price difference for the new model year. Dealers will start receiving the more expensive 2016 Hellcat models this month, with the second half of cars scheduled to arrive in February 2016.
