The Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and a long list of other Chrysler Group vehicles that rely on the Hemi or Pentastar engines will skip their normal summer downtime in order to keep up with the high demand for these engines

Many automaker production facilities have summer downtime to prepare for the new model year, but so many of the Chrysler Group vehicles are selling so well that almost a dozen plants around North America will not stop production this summer – including the plant where all of the Hemi V8 and Pentastar V6 engines are built. While the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger aren’t the only vehicles keeping sales high enough to prevent plant downtime, the high levels of interest in these modern muscle cars combined with the success of the full sized trucks, full sized SUVs and all of the vehicles running Pentastar V6 engines are keeping the engine plants, some transmission plants and a few vehicle assembly plants working through the summer.
