Due to zombie-consumers willing to buy anything with the Hemi name slapped on it, Chrysler is looking to increase output at its Mexico plant. Chrysler spokespeople say they are progressing cautiously, fearing market saturation, although they still plan to put the 345-hp engine into two new models, the 2005 Dodge Ram Power Wagon and 2006 Charger. Currently you can find Hemis in the Dodge Durango, Magnum and Ram (pictured at right), plus the Chrysler 300C. The Jeep Cherokee will also add a Hemi option in 2005. While Chrysler remains tightlipped on how many Hemis they build in a year, they will say production is running 10 percent higher than anticipated.
