Dodge will drop Avenger, Grand Caravan as part of Fiat’s new 5-year business plan

In order to follow Fiat’s new five-year business plan, Dodge is preparing to drop some models from its lineup. As a result, Dodge will end the production of the Avenger in 2014 and it will not build a new model because the Chrysler 200 will address this portion of the market.

Moreover, the production of the Grand Caravan will end in 2016 as the Chrysler Town & Country will address this portion of the market. The next-generation Dodge Dart will arrive in 2016, followed by the Dart SRT few months later.

The Journey / D CUV will debut in 2016, while the D CUV SRT will be introduced in 2017. In 2018, the new subcompact hatch from Dodge will be introduced, followed by a SRT version in early 2017. The next-generation Dodge Challenger will be unveiled in 2018, while by the end of the year the Challenger SRT will arrive. In the same period, Dodge will present the Charger and the Charger SRT versions.

Chrysler extends lives of Dodge Avenger, Grand Caravan and Jeep Wrangler

Chrysler Group has extended the lives of the Dodge Avenger, Dodge Grand Caravan and Jeep Wrangler, according to a report by The Detroit News, citing supplier sources. The paper said that Chrysler’s product plan entails production of the current Avenger until 2015, an extension of one year; the Grand Caravan until 2017, an extension of 2 years; and the current Wrangler to 2018.

If the report is true, the product extensions might indicate that Chrysler and parent Fiat are trying to save money as they try to struggle with the continuing economic crisis in Europe as well as to prepare for Fiat’s planned acquisition of the remaining Chrysler shares it does not own.

The Avenger sedan had been expected to be terminated late this year or in the first quarter of 2014, as Chrysler prepares its Sterling Heights site to build the next generation Chrysler 200 sedan, which will be underpinned by the same platform that underpins the Dodge Dart and Jeep Cherokee.

Chrysler's Dodge Grand Caravan R/T is set to be displayed at the Chicago Auto Show. Internally, this is referred to as the “man van” since its styling and features are designed to appeal to men. Chrysler has chosen to focus on attracting the men for the minivan segment as the women have shown a strong preference for sport-utility vehicles.

The showrooms are expected to receive the vehicle sometime in the second quarter. In an interview, Ralph Gilles, Chrysler's head designer, said, “It's an experiment.” He said that the company wants to know if the minivan can be made to appeal to a guy who used to drive a sports car but needs a minivan.

Chrysler has fitted its entire minivan line with upgraded interiors and a new engine. The man van will feature a black interior with red accent stitching, a performance-tuned suspension and a sound system with nine speakers and a 506-watt amplifier.
