Dodge to receive 40 mpg small car within 14 months

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 15, 2010

According to the latest reports from Automotive News, it appears that Dodge will receive a 40-mpg small car based on the new Fiat platform within 14 months.

Furthermore, Dodge CEO Ralph Gilles also said that the tooling for that car was handed off to Chrysler Group’s engineering department, which means that the American manufacturer will start working on its new small car in no time.

The new vehicle is set to become Chrysler’s key in meeting the new U.S. fuel- economy standards. But, until the new car will be introduced, Chrysler has new surprises for you folks in the form of the 2011 Dodge Charger sedan and the all-new 2011 Dodge Durango.

In addition, Dodge also introduced redesigned Journey crossover, Avenger sedan and Grand Caravan minivan. The new 2011 Charger is priced from $25,995, including destination. The new car is considered a rival to the 2011 Bmw 5-Series in terms of handling, steering response and ride.

“I’m a big fan of high-end European cars,” Gilles said. “It doesn’t cost anything to tweak the handling.” Furthermore, the new 2011 Durango is set to take on European crossovers, offering “full-size SUV capability” with “the refinement of a premium crossover.” [via autonews - sub. required]
