Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep news from Allpar

Preview of Mopar Future (fixed)

Four Year Plan

Chrysler has updated its chart of upcoming vehicles for the next few years, with notations for changed vehicles and pushbacks in time. In red, we have printed our knowledges, guesses, or speculation of what the covered vehicles might be. (We are excluding Fiat and Alfa Romeo from these charts, for the moment.)

We have updated this chart to reflect more likely “drops” for 2013 – if you are seeing the older image, please refresh your browser! The 200/Sebring shows as “200/Sebring” because internal documents refer to the “UF body” car as the Sebring; this is most likely a matter of entries made before the name change and left untouched, but there is a small possibility that the Sebring name will be brought back, and that the 300 will ride alone as an alphanumeric car.

What we know for certain is that the small Jeep (“B-SUV”) has been delayed until 2014, allowing a peak under one cover; as we noted earlier, this is probably to increase its off-road capability and make it worthy (or more worthy) of the name “Jeep.”  The Doblo-based van is due in 2014, and Viper will be refreshed in 2015. The numbers of vehicles being refreshed in 2014 make it fairly clear that the Lx family will be refreshed then; especially since the eight-speed/V8 combination is now available on Grand Cherokee, and Chrysler will likely want to upgrade their flagship large cars to the latest UConnect technology. New styling will also be applied to the Chrysler, based on Ralph Gilles’ statements. The 2013 Dodge refresh is most likely Durango, which, like Grand Cherokee, gets the eight-speed automatics; we believe it was supposed to have been replaced by Wagoneer.

The new Wrangler platform is due in 2015 or 2016 or so, along with plant changes to allow for greater flexibility and output. We believe a Wrangler-based pickup is a sure thing; the other new vehicle may be either a variant of the Wrangler itself, or something else based on the same chassis, e.g. a chassis cab truck, a hard-roof version, or a J8-type series of vehicles for flexible military and NGO use.
