Dodge Avenger, Chrysler Sebring to Get Through 2010
The news might be a bit surprising, especially for those interested in the financial results of the American automaker. Although we're not going to get into details, sales of both Dodge Avenger and Chrysler Sebring fell dramatically following the economic recession, with sources pointing to an 80 percent drop from 2008 figures.
But even so, Chrysler still plans to keep the two in production, according to a statement by spokesman Rick Deneau. "We definitely have plans for these vehicles beyond December 2010. That's about all I can tell you, but it's pretty definitive," he was quoted as saying by edmunds.com.
Still, there are a lot of sketchy details surrounding the two models. First of all, it may seem like Chrysler has set the 2010 deadline because that is the time when the company intends to close the doors of the Sterling Heights plant responsible for the production of the two. MotorAuthority.com writes that Dodge Avenger and Chrysler Sebring might be then transferred to other plants.
Obviously, these are only a bunch of rumors because things could get changed in a blink of an eye. Fiat will surely have a word to say on the matter and given the aforementioned very low sales figures, the Italian automaker might simply disagree with the two.
