Next-gen Dodge Charger and Challenger to ride on Ghibli platform

Dodge Charger and Challenger

Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will reportedly transition Dodge Charger and Challenger models to a new platform for the next generation.

Both will utilise the underpinnings of the Maserati Ghibli. Whether there is a new one of those hitting the market in the alongside the two Dodge products is unknown.

Compared to current generation models, these models will be more fuel efficient and lighter and are expected to debut in 2021.

Before the vehicles swap to a new platform, both will be revised one last time in 2019.

More Dodge Charger variants!

As if SRT, R/T, Demon and Hellcat weren’t enough, there are also talks of more versions of both cars to lineup alongside an already jam-packed lineup before the introduction of the next-generation.

In other Dodge news, FCA has no plans for a Viper successor or the Dodge Dart as production for the latter ended last year.

It also looks bleak for the revitalised Barracuda two-door convertible as no word has been spoken of about the model since late 2010!

Last month, Dodge discontinued the Grand Caravan lineup due to certain regulations but plan to bring the model back for 2019 along with a redesigned Durango with three-row seating.

Dodge Journey models will also be refreshed come 2019 and will share the Grigio platform which is currently found underneath Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUVs. Dodge will also move production of the Journey from Mexico to Italy and will continue to use a five-seat setup.
