2011 Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger production kicks off

A recent announcement made by the American car manufacturer Chrysler spoke about the beginning of the production for two of its key models, the Dodge Charger and the new Chrysler 300. The manufacturing of these interesting models will take place at the Brampton Assembly Plant in Ontario, Canada. During a ceremony attended by Chrysler Canada CEO Reid Bigland, the Ontario Minister of Finance Dwight Duncan, Brampton Mayor Susan Fennella, CAW President Ken Lewenza and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, the latter stated the launch came to demonstrate Chrysler's 18-months achievements, an opportunity facilitated by the assistance of the governments of Canada and the Province of Ontario. Sergio Marchionne also expressed the company's gratitude for taxpayers in Canada and U.S. loans that enabled a restructured, vibrant company to emerge in June 2009. This is, all in all, the result of an efficient collaboration between industry, government and labor. The new Chrysler 300 will be powered by the new Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine which raises an output of 292 hp and 353 Nm of torque or by a 5.7-liter Hemi V8, developing 363 hp. The Charger features practically the same choice of engines, except for the different power outputs. Thus, the Hemi packs no more than 370 hp, while the V6 raises 292 hp.
