Federal Regs force FCA to kill the current Dodge Viper
The 2017 Dodge Viper may be the last among it's breed. Federal Regulations have been known for implementing safety standards that greatly affect Vehicle manufacturer's procedures and standards of which they are held reliable. This is the case, as reported by Motor Trend (MT), for the future of the Dodge Viper. As MT reports, FMSS #226 requires side curtain airbags that simply will not fit in the current Viper platform. MT reports that FCA stated that in order for the Viper to continue, it would have to be based on a different platform, but there was no information available whether they would invest in to that scenario.
