** PlmCrzy wrote, “My B5 and Hemi Orange totals match exactly the Dodge 2009 totals released today. (Your current chart is over 1,360 short of the “official” totals released today for the three 2009 high impact colors, so I think my suspicion is correct.) My TorRed total is 26 greater than FCA’s. I’ve seen errors before from FCA’s quotes. I’m not sure where they are going wrong. I have valid VINs and build sheets for all of my totals.”

Kaine Beedenbender asked Chrysler how many Challenger R/Ts were ordered with the Redline package, and was told that the numbers were 615 in 2013, and 1,059 in 2014.

SE is LCDH22, R/T is LCDP22, SRT8 is LCDX22. Some of these colors (e.g. B5 Blue) were not generally available or were only available for part of the year. Hemi Orange and B5 Blue were not available on Challenger SE. The four-speed automatic was dropped for the 2010 model year. Thanks to Mike V. for providing this information.

PlumCrazy provided a chart he said was updated to include the full model year’s production, and which is somewhat more detailed. (All 21st century Challengers were made in Canada.)

Total Dodge Challenger production and US sales

dodge challenger sales and production

1970, the first full year for the original Dodge Challenger, set the bar that no Challenger has reached since, with 54,054 sold. The car was, at that time, a failure, given that production was expected to be much higher, and it sat on its own unique body and platform (the latter shared with the new Plymouth Barracuda). Now, original Challengers and Chargers are prized, and pricey.
