Stellantis leaks data about upcoming Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & Ram releases
Stellantis held a private meeting for North American dealerships where the corporation shared its plans regarding its constituent car brands. A person allegedly present at the event leaked the info on Reddit. The post and the user’s account are now deleted, but the thread remains online.
If the leak is to be trusted, Stellantis will soon wrap up the production of its Hemi V8 engine, as well as the Chrysler 300 sedan and the Dodge Durango SUV. The latter will allegedly make room for a new seven-seat off-roader dubbed the Stealth.
The next-gen Dodge Charger, already previewed as a part-electric concept car (see video), may end up using its petrol engine as a range extender, according to the leak. We assume it will be the all-new Hurricane I6 engine introduced a year ago.
The Ram 1500 Revolution is another example of a vehicle running on all-electric power with a combustion engine used to extend the driving range. A battery-electric variant of the pickup is also in the plans with a choice between 563 and 805 km (350 and 500 miles) of range. The towing capacity of the truck is quoted as 6,350 kg, or 14,000 pounds. Apparently, the dealership representatives were shown sketches of a mid-size Ram pickup as well, but the leak has no details on that one.
A successor to the recently departed Jeep Cherokee also hit the spotlight at the event. The SUV will allegedly share the exterior design with the larger Grand Cherokee model and inherit its dimensions and market niche from the Cherokee, but will go on sale under a different name.
Other Jeep premieres expected in the near future are Grand Wagoneer 4xe (hybrid) and Wagoneer S (all-electric). The 2024 Jeep Gladiator truck is scheduled to get a Willys Edition with 33-inch tires and improve its towing capacities to 3.5 metric tons (7,700 pounds). The Grand Cherokee is set to receive a facelift in two years.
For its own part, Chrysler will reportedly refresh its Pacifica minivan once more and produce a battery car inspired by the Airflow EV Concept from earlier. The only thing known about it so far is that it is going to be a light passenger car – a sedan or a liftback.
