We learned over the weekend that the Dodge Challenger received the green light to head into production as a 2008 model, and now we have a little more information from the Chrysler Group concerning exactly how many they plan on building.

While Camaro production is being planned at a 100,000 units per annum, the automaker appears to be taking a more reserved approach with the Challenger, with word that they will only build in the neighbourhood of 30,000 of the sought after hot rod each year.

This is according to a recent report by the Globe and Mail of Canada. The plant that currently builds all Dodge Magnum, Charger, and 300C units ? located in Brampton, Ontario ? is also being charged with building the Challenger, which happens to be based on the same platform as the aforementioned three vehicles. This low volume approach is in sharp contrast to the strategy that Ford has taken with its Mustang: they made 192,000 of the pony car in 2005.

Yup, will be built in Brampton with the other LX cars.

The plant is almost at capacity now, so there will only be room to build 25-30K Challengers per year.
well if gm does not get their head out of their butts we may have to buy challangers instead of mustangs
Heck no, I ain't buyin no overpriced tank.
