Fiat Chrysler Dodge will stay with their stock of large vehicles until 2020.
The Dodge Challenger, Charger and Chrysler 300 won’t be redesigned until 2021. In 2021, FCA is probably going to cease creation of one of the expensive vehicles.
Data confirms unclear details in a contract sent to their union members. The contract clarifies the organization’s new four-year work contract with Unifor, the Canadian Auto workers union.
The agreement calls for the FCA to invest $242 million in the plant in Brampton, Ontario. The investment will rebuild its old paint shop. In the summer of 2017 construction is to begin.
The Giorgio stage supports the new Alfa Romeo Giulia, that will be on sale in the U.S before the year’s over.
On the organization’s third-quarter phone call with investigators toward the end of last month, Sergio Marchionne, FCA CEO said he was energized by the flexibility of the engineering that was arranged when the Giulia was propelled. He says it’s turned out to be more than we expected, and he thinks its use over an extensive variety of applications inside the gathering is likely the most painful thing we’ve done for a specialized advancement here in quite a while.
The Giorgio platform will stretch and probably widen for Dodge to use in North America. For the first time since 2014, it is also rigorous enough to permit FCA to go back to the convertible market.
In Las Vegas in August 2015, at the latest FCA dealer’s show, FCA showed a convertible that Dodge calls the Barracuda. A name taken from Plymouth’s previous muscle car.
Until the switch to the Giorgio platform, FCA will refresh the Charger, Challenger and 300 for 2018. The three large all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive vehicles have updates for 2015. However, Dodge has pressed further sales from its two offerings emphasizing specialty trim levels.
In 2017 for the first time in 46 years, Dodge is giving its T/A name back to the Challenger. They will offer three new subtrims that track appearance upgrades onto the trim lineup.
However, when FCA starts making the Giorgio-base Dodge vehicles, it may mean the end of the Chrysler 300.
After taking over Chrysler after its bankruptcy in 2009, FCA’s executive leadership removed the badge-engineered vehicles. Recently, that has continued with the Jeep Compass, which is replacing the current Jeep Patriot and Compass.
