DETROIT -- The Dodge Challenger is coming back. The Chrysler group was scheduled to announce its return last Saturday at the Pepsi 400 NASCAR race in Daytona Beach, Fla. The Challenger concept car debuted at the Detroit auto show in January.
The muscle car is expected to start production in 2008 as a 2008 model.
Chrysler is deciding among three production sites, a company source says.
The rear-wheel-drive car will be built on the same platform as the Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum and Charger. But it will not necessarily be built in the same Brampton, Ontario, factory as those cars.
Dodge last made the Challenger in 1974. It would compete with the Ford Mustang.
