Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge Future Product Lineup Revealed



Quote:
The future is looking bright for the Fiat-Chrysler family, especially with the all-new SRT Viper on the horizon.

But thatís not all Sergio Marchionne and his Fiat-Chrysler collaboration have in store. With multiple automakers under the brand now, we can expect several new models from Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Maserati, and SRT in the upcoming years, not to mention the revival of the Alfa Romeo brand in the United States.

Some of the more notable changes incoming for the automakers include the transition of the popular Chrysler Town & Country minivan to a crossover, a six-cylinder Dodge Journey SRT joining the lineup while weíll be saying good bye to the Dodge Durango in 2016 and the Avenger in 2014.

As for the Alfa Romeo lineup, it appears that the 4C Coupe will be in America by 2013, while the Spyder variant will make an appearance a year later. A small crossover model related to the Jeep Patriot will be added in 2014 with a four-cylinder powerplant, while the Giulietta, Giulia, and Giulia Sportwagon will be in the U.S. by 2014. The Alfa Romeo Spider, which features RWD components from Mazda, will come at an unknown future date.

For the Chrysler brand, we can expect to see a 200 model by next year, while the smaller, compact 100 is due in 2016. The 100 is believed to be Dodge Dart-sized and will probably be based on the Giulietta. As for the future, the Town & Country crossover will come in 2015 based on an entirely new platform, while 2017 will see a new 300 model.

The Dodge brand has already revealed the new Dart, but a new Challenger will come in 2014 while the Journey will get an upgrade next year with the SRT6 model. Down the road, the Grand Caravan sees an update in 2015 while the Charger will get a remodel for 2016.

The Italian Fiat brand will bring in the 500L and 500XL next year, with the XL being a seven-seat variant of the 500L. A 500-based crossover called the 500X Fouristrada is scheduled for 2013 along with a 500 Zagato. Also on the schedule for a 2014 launch is a 500 Elettra EV.

The Jeep brand has plenty of updates in the near future, with the new Liberty coming next year, while the Grand Wagoneer (full-size SUV), Jeepster, and Patriot will all make an appearance in 2014. The Jeepster will be an Italian-built subcompact SUV while the Patriot will be U.S.-built and twinned with an Alfa Romeo crossover.

Luxury brand Maserati has its Quattroporte and Maseratina for 2013, while the Kubang will make its market debut in 2014. An update to the GranTurismo and GranCabrio model is expected for 2015 and 2017, respectively.

Last but not least, the SRT brand will not only see the Viper and the Journey SRT6, but a new Grand Cherokee SRT8, Challenger SRT8, and Dart SRT4 model.

A new SRT8 Jeep? You guys seen the two door SRT Jeep concept pic on the other site? Looks like the new Range Rover

This almost seems like they are just meaning "new model year" but they left out the 300 and Charger. So either they are discontinuing the 300 SRT8 and Charger SRT8 or there is something else afoot. Or their press release just sux.

I always thought an SRT version of the Journey would be sweet. I wonder if that means they are releasing some monstered up Pentastar?

A "Journey SRT" is nothing more than a rumor, Sergio never mentioned it in his interview.

Could that possibly be taken to mean that the end of the WK2 model cycle is going to get "blown" out so to speak?
