FCA To End Production Of Dodge Dart And Chrysler 200

by SpeedLux

Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) officials confirmed that production of the Dodge Dart will come to a halt in September 2016 and there will be no 2017 models. This statement comes as a progressing product strategy. Automaker has not named the replacement model yet.

The end of the Dart, assembled at the automaker’s Belvidere, Illinois, center, clears the way for Dodge to play to its strengths in the North American industry, mainly by developing more costly and thus successful Jeep and Ram models.

An estimated of 34,500 Darts were sold through the first eight months of 2016, a little less than half the number sold during the same duration in the previous year. The Illinois plant will develop the Jeep Cherokee, instead.

Production of the Chrysler 200, assembled at FCA’s factory located in Sterling Heights, Michigan, will pertain to an end in December this year. That suburban Detroit facility will be retooled to produce the upgraded 2018 Ram 1500.
