What will Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ U.S. product lineup look like when CEO Sergio Marchionne’s new business plan is fully executed?
Few details were provided last week, but it probably will appear as though fuel economy targets had been thrown out the window. There will be lots of SUVs, crossovers and pickups, a minivan or two and a smattering of large cars.
Unlike 2014 when the company provided granular detail of its five-year product plan, this time Marchionne said FCA is keeping the details to itself. But based on last week’s earnings call and recent interviews, here is a partial picture of each domestic brand.
• Chrysler: Pacifica minivan, 300, possibly a full-size crossover based on the minivan platform, outsourced 200 and 100.
• Dodge: Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, plus SRT derivatives, redesigned Journey.
• Jeep: Grand Wagoneer, Wagoneer, Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited, Wrangler pickup, Compass/Patriot replacement, Renegade, A-segment Jeep.
• Ram: 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups, ProMaster, ProMaster City, Suburban-fighter pickup-based SUVs, with diesel and mild hybrids across the line.
