Chrysler will restart Dodge Viper production in mid-November

Article by Christian A., on October 22, 2014

Chrysler’s Conner Avenue plant in Detroit will be alive again in mid-November then the company will restart the production of its Dodge Viper. Apparently, the move to offer a $15,000 price cut was a good one for Chrysler as Dodge Viper sales increased in September to 108 vehicles, up from just 45 in September 2013.

Still, dealers have lots of vehicles in their inventories and despite 200 orders for 2015 Vipers, the manufacturer will not start building them until unsold inventories are reduced. According to Dodge brand head Tim Kuniskis, the production will start when they get much closer to the proper inventory levels.

When the production will start, Dodge will build only the GT and base SRT trim levels, while the TA and GTS trims will be produced when the unsold inventories of 2013 and 2014 models will be reduced.

If you still don’t know, we will tell you that back in September Dodge officially announced that the price of the Viper will be slashed by $15,000, which means that the vehicle starts at $84,995 excluding destination charge and the gas guzzler tax. Moreover, existing Gen 5 Viper owners will receive a $15,000 worth certificate which can be used to purchase a new viper.

The certificate is in addition to the $15,000 and this means that some lucky folks will get a $30,000 price cut. Furthermore, the 2015 Dodge Viper GT starts at $94,995, while the 2015 Dodge Viper TA 2.0 starts at $100,885 (previously priced at $115,885). The most expensive model a.k.a. 2015 Dodge Viper GTS will start at $107,995 (previously priced at $122,385).

For the 2015MY, the 8.4-liter V10 engine that powers the Dodge Viper was boosted from 640 to 645 hp, while the 600 lb-ft of torque remains untouched.
