Chrysler Group's Newark Assembly Plant Marks Milestone: One Million Durangos
Chrysler Group’s Newark (Delaware) Assembly Plant achieved a new milestone on January 30, when the one-millionth Dodge Durango rolled off the production line. The achievement was celebrated at the Philadelphia Auto Show.
“Since its introduction, Durango has consistently been one of America’s favorite SUVs,” said Wolfgang Bernhard, Chrysler Group chief operating officer. “Our 2004 Dodge Durango sold almost 10,000 vehicles in December alone.”
As testament to the Durango’s popularity, the vehicle has received numerous awards, including “Truck of the Year” by the Detroit Free Press and Motorweek’s “Driver’s Choice” as the Best Family Sport Utility. The Detroit News ranked it best in class, and Truckin’ Magazine named the Durango “SUV of the Year” and the “People’s Choice SUV of the Year.”
