Dodge Presses Pause On 2017 Viper Ordering

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has revealed that it has paused ordering for the 2017 Dodge Viper as production of the model’s final production year continues.

In an email to The Detroit News, a Dodge spokeswoman revealed that while orders for the 2017 Viper aren’t currently being accepted, order books will be re-opened once the firm determines how many units it can build before the end of the 2017 model year.

“Ordering is still closed for all Viper models. Again, the ordering system will be re-opened, but the timing on when that will happen is still to be determined,” she said.

Dodge started building 2017-spec Vipers in summer and it was recently revealed that a single dealership in North Carolina had ordered 135 brand new Vipers, even going to the lengths of creating its own ‘special edition’ Vipers and assembly a dedicated team to help sell the cars.

Fiat Chrysler has confirmed that this order was genuine but hasn’t backed up the dealer’s claim that the order accounts for most of the remaining 2017 cars.
