The public will get a rare inside look at two Chrysler assembly plants when the third season of National Geographic Channel’s “Ultimate Factories” kicks off on Thursday, February 3 at 10 pm Eastern Time.
The season opener focuses on the Dodge Challenger, an American classic reborn 40 years after its inception, and the Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, the 3 million square foot Canadian assembly plant that pumps out 900 Challengers a day. Viewers will see how the Challenger’s components travel across 20 miles of conveyor lines, going from raw sheet metal to muscle car in 20 hours. The episode includes a visit to the Saltillo [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]Engine[/COLOR][/COLOR] Plant where the HEMI is produced.
Two weeks later, on Thursday, February 17 at 10 p.m. ET, National Geographic will be in Detroit to visit the Conner avenue Assembly plant where workers hand-built the Dodge Viper, the ultimate sports [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]car[/COLOR][/COLOR]. Filmed during the last year of production, the program shows the craftspeople who spent two-and-a-half days building each 600-horsepower Viper. Without any robots on this assembly line, every Viper is truly hand-crafted.
Dodge is the only American automotive brand represented this season. Three other episodes feature Mercedes-Benz, Maserati and Bentley.
