We always get really excited when FCA puts out anything regarding what their future plans for the brand might happen to be. We are really excited about some of the news that Chrysler put out over the last couple of days and we wanted to share what we heard. While some of this information is just projections and predictions, we still thought you might like to read about it. Remember, you can always get the latest Chrysler cars at All Star Chrysler near Florissant.
Tipo/Neon: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has studied importing the compact Fiat Tipo sedan into the U.S. from Europe and likely rebadging it as a Chrysler Neon. However, no plan has been announced.
200: Production of the 200 midsize sedan has ended. It will not be replaced.
300: Sources say a planned redesign of the LX-based 300 onto the Giorgio platform, originally scheduled for 2020, has been scrapped. Instead, designers will do a major freshening of the 300 in 2019 in hopes of shedding weight and improving fuel economy. The addition of a turbocharged four-cylinder is a strong possibility to augment an improved V-6 to help get the job done. In the meantime, Chrysler will put a Hellcat engine in its luxury sedan in late 2018.
Pacifica: The well-regarded Chrysler Pacifica minivan will be freshened in 2020.
Midsize crossover: The front-wheel-drive midsize crossover, to be built at FCA’s Belvidere Assembly Plant in Illinois beginning in 2019, will share a platform with the Jeep Cherokee and have three rows of seating, similar to the Dodge Journey.
These are just a few of the vehicles that we might be seeing over the next 3 to 5 years. We know that FCA will commit to providing the latest technologies in each of these models and we cant wait!
