Coming in 2015

by David Zatz on

While it’s not on the official charts, we still expect a new  Chrysler Town & Country to appear in calendar-year 2015, though it may not hit dealers until 2016. The Windsor plant is already being expanded and pilots are expected to start rolling off the line midyear.

Chrysler’s five year plan shows a few launches for 2015:

  • Refreshed Jeep Grand Cherokee (we have no idea what this would involve other than, perhaps, the Pentastar and/or 5.7 V8 engine upgrades). This will be for the 2016 model year. (Various blogs are saying that the Trackhawk is also due in 2015, with some saying it will have the 6.4 and others, the supercharged 6.2.)
  • Actual launch of the already-shown Charger SRT in January, and Dodge Viper refresh in July 2015, likely bringing back the ACR (replacing the TA and improving downforce).  The Charger is of course for the 2015 model year, and the Viper for the 2016 model year.
  • Ram 1500 minor update, probably for calendar-year 2016, and possibly including the patented half-and-half tailgate previously reported.

There have also been rumors on the forums of a Ram 1500 variant which would be a lighter Power Wagon alternative. More officially, the Fiat 500X should be showing up, along with the Jeep Renegade; and the ProMaster City and ProMaster diesel will become widely available.
