3D print me a phone mount!
They only get caught when there is ample time to investigate and seek out the beta vehicle on the road or at a proven grounds.
Bingo... if and only if. There is limited view of the test track and they test specific things at night to make it harder to get pics or they go to remote or locked down locations.
If the next gen L-cars are 3 or 4 years out, they would be doing the styling in CAD at this point. You might see a power train mule 2 or 3 years from production.
You wouldn't see the actual car in camo (away from a proving ground site) anytime before 18 months to Job 1.
Dart SRT Engineering mule. At least one, possibly two were built complete with AWD. IIRC one tested a Pentastar V6. Not a single picture was taken while it was being tested.
RWD Dodge midsize that used CUSW, mules were built and tested as part of the early program. Not a single picture was taken while it was being tested
Dodge large midsize CUV off CUSW minivan platform. I know at least one was built, not a single picture taken that was viewed by the public
I know of at least one Giulia that had a Hemi installed in it as part of the next gen Dodge sedan program. Not a single picture taken while it was being tested. There are other engineering mules for this program being used today with no pictures taken and they are being tested right now. I will not go into further details, sorry.
Just a couple examples.
@EVOL you owe me an apology for the personal insult.
Not his IP..... just sayin.
You got to talk to @TripleT about that!
And here I thought Dodge was sitting on their hands just milking the Caravan and L platform...
Will it fit a Pixel XL in a slim-ish case!?
I just want to know the story behind this Journey that allegedly raced a Camaro in Saganaw (owner posted it on LS1Tech) like a decade ago.
Drooling at the thought of an SRT Dart or 6 banger!
Why it par for the course here?
It's a stretched version of the platform underpinning the Stelvio and Giuila. What hard points are you talking about?
FCA already announced they were going to used stretched versions of the platform already for LWB models of both Stelvio and Giuila.
Do I need to remind people...
The confusion, I believe, is from when Sergio stated they'd use a version of the current architecture.
My mind wants to explode thinking about this and how awesome it sounds...
Tell me about it
Boy, that’s a beautiful car.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming....
Sergio loves confusing people. He could say that and mean literally just the same hard points that the current car has and it would be a heavily revised platform then.
After 10 years of this, it should be plain to everyone that Marchionne's favorite sports are cooking up confusions and stirring up intrigue!
Anyone who hasn't figured this out gets 10 demerit points, and must stand in the corner for an hour, wearing a dunce cap!
