Looking ahead: product pipelines

by David Zatz on

What’s coming up for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram?

Given the oft-repeated complaints that FCA US doesn’t have any new product, and tightened budgets across the company to make 2018’s “net debt free” deadline, there’s a surprising number of cars and trucks in the works.

2019 Ram 1500 grille

  • Coming very soon: refreshed Cherokee, and ground-up redesigns of the Wrangler and Ram 1500
  • Next year: ground-up redesigns of the Ram 2500 and 3500
  • 2020-22: new large cars (Challenger, Charger, maybe 300)
  • 2021-23: possibly a new Dodge compact or midsize rear-drive car to more directly compete with Camaro and Mustang
  • Timing unknown: two new Chrysler crossovers (one based on the Chinese Jeep Grand Commander, which is based on the Cherokee, and one based on the Pacifica)
  • Timing unknown: ground-up redesigns of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango
  • 2018-19: Jeep Wagoneer and possibly a Chrysler equivalent
  • Rumored: a Viper replacement, with basics shared with Alfa Romeo and Maserati, but a unique engine and likely other unique features

There’s still no known timeline on the big Ram chassis cabs, or the ProMaster City update. The former is less urgent, and not especially sensitive to style; the latter is dependent on what Fiat itself does.

There is likely a Ram ProMaster update sooner rather than later, as well; and that would be the entire product line refreshed or replaced, if you include the new Compass.
