Monthly Production Numbers Show The Extent To Which Chrysler Had Been Overbuilding


Last month, Chrysler built 4,314 Chrysler 300 sedans, down from 13, 666 in January of 2006. It built 5,437 Dodge Chargers last month, down from almost 9,100 a year ago. And it 1,622 Magnum wagons last month, down from 4,164 a year ago.
