Chrysler Group factories in Detroit and Indiana were busy in January as production of the Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Dart and SRT Viper rose 103.5% to 30,827. Avenger production rose 90.4% and nine new Vipers left the Conner Assembly Plant. Brampton finished the month 6.6% ahead of January 2012 with growth in scheduling Challenger and Charger assembly overcoming a cutback in Chrysler 300 output. A sharp decline in demand for the Fiat 500 and 500 Cabrio trimmed completions at the Toluca plant by 41.5%. Overall passenger car production grew to 54,839 units, an increase of 35.5% compared to January 2012. As a percentage of total light vehicle output, cars accounted for 31.7% last month, way ahead of the 21.8% slice of the pie they got last year. Total Chrysler Group production declined 6.7% in January, thanks to a 5.1% drop in light truck assembly. Activity at the Windsor plant..

Still shaking my head @ the Avenger; it's 'ancient' by today's standards but seems to be growing in popularity............

Admittedly it may be mostly for rental fleets but still..........

Growth in the auto sector without growth in other sectors is dangerous.

Who is going to buy all these cars?

That's what bit out economy not so many years ago.
Thats why I keep asking myself, where are all these cars going? The job market isn't all that great, so who is buying them?

The Avenger is one of my favorites, a good old school type vehicle just like me. :)

Pent up Chrysler owners? The lineup is the best its been in a long long time. Could also be fleet stuff, end of year you gotta do something with them. NY/NJ had an estimated 250, 000 cars destroyed by Sandy. Not sure if that includes vehicles in dealers lots and ones off loaded at the ports, they are darn close to sea level, there was a 12 ft surge. There were 100K in long Island NY alone. Carfax that used vehicle,

But, I thought Chrysler only sold trucks and SUVs? That's what the media wants you to believe anyway.
