Dodge Pulls The Plug on Nitro and Caliber in the UK
Due to lackluster sales, Dodge has decided to pull the plug on the Caliber and Nitro in the UK.
Dodge sells eight vehicles here in the U.S. including the Viper, which is dead after 2010. This is in stark contrast to the U.K., where Dodge only sold the Caliber, Journey, and Nitro. Withdrawing the Nitro and Caliber leaves U.K. Dodge dealerships with only the Journey crossover, exclusively sold as a seven-seat vehicle there.
As part of Chrysler's plan to update most of its models by the end of the year, the Journey received a revised model lineup in the U.K. earlier this year.
Although Dodge is pulling the Caliber and Nitro from the UK, the two vehicles will still be sold in mainland Europe. Dodge's three crossover vehicles are sold alongside the Avenger sedan in most countries as well.
