General Challenger DiscussionThis section contains general discussion about the Dodge Challenger. If it does not fit into a more specific area, it probably belongs in here. (Dodge Challenger General Discussion)
Great info, more than we get from Chrysler. I had no idea the SE/SXT for 2010 and 2011 was outselling the RT model. I am surprised.
I'm guessing this would be true of most vehicles, regardless of brand or model. The entry level trim would sell more, because of the lower price point, with the top level trim having the lowest production/sales numbers. It would be especially true of the Challenger, because of the large price gap between trim levels.
Looks like the Challenger hit its peak in 2010 and is declining in sales steadily now. I bet Dodge pulls the plug after 2014. Just my opinion.
I was thinking the same thing, but didn't mention it because I would probably get bashed... we'll get bashed together now.
I think that a manufacturer won't keep a vehicle in production with less than 40K unit sales per model year. 2010 had a long production year, because of the delayed release of the refreshed '11 models.

I still find here that the Dodge folks have no cars on their lot's. I found my car on line when they were doing the rebates and took sale of it when they agreed to drop the price down a few thousand from the MSRP.
I see introduction of 8 speed auto in MY2013, interesting
Production numbers for 2011 were down, but I don't think it shows a trend. That was short model year run, with other problems arising as well (colour shortage). Were only 3.5 months into MY2012, and they're on track to produce around 40-45K challengers.
