As your friendly neighborhood Chrysler dealership serving Battle Creek, we here at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM aren’t going to sugar coat it; the reality is that over the course of the next two years, things are going to get very, very interesting for the FCA brands, as there are quite a few really exciting models coming down the pipeline in the next 12-24 months. We’re not really even sure where to begin, other than to say that at the end of August, FCA held a big dealership event in Las Vegas to fill everyone in on the big picture. The big picture, quite frankly, is pretty rosy.
For starters, Chrysler, is going to develop a plug-in version of the Town & Country minivan, while a new Chrysler SUV will be released, approximately the size of the current Dodge Durango, and it will feature stow-and-go seating.
The actual Dodge Durango, meanwhile, is getting a powerful new SRT trim, while the Charger will be redesigned all the way down to the drivetrain. A couple of new Challenger models are reportedly on their way, as well, as is a new 300-hp version of the Dodge Dart.
For Jeep, the most exciting new model is going to be the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which will feature all-wheel drive and the universally beloved Hellcat V8 engine. The Grand Wagoneer is coming, too, as is a next-generation 2017 Jeep Wrangler, which also will lead to a brand new Wrangler-inspired pickup truck.
Finally, RAM is planning a next-generation 1500 model and a new Power Wagon, putting the finishing touches on what should be a truly incredible two years for FCA dealerships. We’re certainly looking forward to it, because we know these all are vehicles worth looking forward to.
