From who did you hear this?
Ummm. If you don't believe us, here are some sources for you....
"We’ve known for some time now that Fiat Chrysler’s new Giorgio platform underpinning the Alfa Romeo Giulia would spread throughout the FCA portfolio, but now company CEO Sergio Marchionne has confirmed the next-gen Jeep Grand Cherokee will most likely move to that architecture."
FCA Looking at Giorgio Platform for Next-Gen Jeep Grand Cherokee - Motor Trend (at http://www.motortrend.com/news/fca-looking-at-giorgio-platform-for-next-gen-jeep-grand-cherokee/ )
"The Dodge Challenger coupe and Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 sedans won't be redesigned onto the automaker's new Giorgio platform until the 2021 model year, when FCA is likely to discontinue production of one of the large sedans, according to one internal FCA source and one at an FCA supplier."
Dodge Challenger and Charger replacements might not come until 2021 (at http://autoweek.com/article/rumormill/dodge-challenger-and-charger-replacements-might-not-come-until-2021 )
"Thanks to a few hints from FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne, we now know just how deeply Giorgio will permeate the brand. As we initially reported, nearly all FCA brands including Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Maserati, and future Alfa Romeos will get the platform, which is optimized for both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive setups.
So far as we know, new versions of the Dodge Challenger, Charger, Journey, and Durango will get the platform although it will be downgraded a bit to lower costs. A new mid-size Dodge sedan based on the Giulia is also a possibility while Chrysler will get the platform for the next generation 300C."

"The Charger's overall length is expected to remain at about 198 inches when it switches from its current platform -- which dates to the Charger's return as a 2006 model -- to an extended version of the Giorgio platform that underpins the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia."
Next-gen Dodge Charger could cut weight, offer twin-turbo I-4 (at http://www.autonews.com/article/20160530/OEM03/305309960/next-gen-dodge-charger-could-cut-weight-offer-twin-turbo-i-4 )
"Some of the Alfa Romeo models Giorgio will underpin are expected to be the Giulia small sedan, a new mid-size sedan and possibly a large coupe. At Chrysler, the Giorgio platform will likely be used first for the next-generation Dodge Challenger and then for next-generation versions of the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger."
