Chrysler to stop producing three vehicle models.

GM presented a survival plan that also calls for cutting a total of 47,000 jobs globally and closing five more U.S. factories. That represents the largest work force reduction announced by a U.S. company in the economic downturn. Chrysler said it will cut 3,000 more jobs and stop producing three vehicle models.

"Chrysler says it's going to stop making its Aspen, and its once popular PT Cruiser, too.

And Dodge plans to stop making the Durango."

I think I remember hearing that they were going to stop making the viper in 2011 That is going to be a sad year.

OK, lets get this straight!!

ASPEN and Durango, in current form will be killed. They are being brought back on a new chassis in 2010. So just being replaced by a new more efficient design.

PT Cruiser CONVERTABLE was killed in 2008, the standard PT Cruiser (still in production) will cease production this year.

So really, only 1 car is getting axed, the Cruiser. The Durango and ASPEN are getting a new chassis so the old one is being dropped.

Returned 2006 Silver SRT8 (vanished into the unknown!)
2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
2009 Jeep Patriot Rocky Mountain
1982 Kawasaki KZ1100 Spectre

But they're only redesigning it, not getting rid of it.

Hopefully they don't rename it like Ford did with the Ford 500. Wait...let's call it a Taurus again.
