ORDERING 2022 HC RE AS SOON AS DODGE TAKES ORDERS
Hi everyone. We don't have one yet but we are seriously thinking about ordering a new Charger Redeye Hellcat. Believe it or not I think we want a base model car. None of the options mean much to us and some we actually don't like. For example we would pay extra NOT to have a sun roof LOL.

My wife and I are a one car family (we just like to go everywhere together) so this would be a daily driver. It will seldom (if ever) be used for serious track use or racing. I'm thinking a base model car with the standard tires and wheels would be more comfortable and practical for a daily driver. I know this is not the best car for daily driving but who cares? It sounds like a ton of fun to us! I may have a few questions as we get further into choosing what we want. Many thanks!

Robert

Welcome!


Usually when somebody orders a "stripper" model, they are looking for cost and/or weight savings so they can dedicate it to the drag strip. Of course the Charger RE doesn't have a really long option list right now anyway.

While I would consider the Alcantara, you do you!

When you get something ordered up, let us know, and pictures are always a casual requirement. ; )

ORDERING 2022 HC RE AS SOON AS DODGE TAKES ORDERS
Thanks Bull. The primary reason we would order a stripper model is there really are not options that do much for us. Cost and weight are somewhat important but not a really big deal to us. I will look into the Alcantara interior. What are the advantages? We do have two dogs (a large German Shepard and a pug) that will be riding in the back seat but we will put a seat protector on.

I do have two questions I have come up with. How is the ground clearance for a daily driver? Do you have to drive around town always worried that you will scrape the bottom every time your pull off into a parking lot, etc? Also how is the interior noise at normal highway speed? I read one review that said it is very loud. That does not seem right to me.

We are thinking about a white car with the light brown interior. (I forget what they call the light brown interior.) We want a sleeper car that is fast as all get out but does not attract undue attention. We are thinking the plain white Charger would not be too flashy. Thanks again.

ORDERING 2022 HC RE AS SOON AS DODGE TAKES ORDERS
Hi Drags. I'm new around here as well. I'm also an old fart at 62 and have had a few high performance cars over the years but nothing with 800 HP! I will be ordering a Charger HC RE when the 2022 season opens up.

Us old farts have to stick it to the young guns,, right. Fixin to turn 65,, I have had the pleasure of driving, operating, and wrecking some nice cars coming up from the 70s. I blame it on my social upbringings.

No way You are and Old Wise Soul.
I may be there in 2022 right with you ordering a Charger Redeye.
I love my Charger Hellcat and had the great experience to be the 1st Charger Hellcat into 9s! I'm looking forward to have some race time soon!

Linda :)
