Stellantis recently held their Dealer Business Meeting 2023 in Las Vegas, but some non-disclosure agreements were clearly not honored, as details from the event have leaked. Those details paint a pretty vivid picture of the future of the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and RAM brands in the U.S. Starting with RAM, it is being reported that a mid-sized truck was shown at the event wearing a design that’s clearly inspired by the 1500 Revolution BEV concept, just smaller. It was described as more of a lifestyle truck than what the production version of that concept turned out to be.
On the Dodge side, multiple juicy details have been shared, including the fact that a replacement for the aging Durango SUV is coming, but will wear a new name – Stealth. It will apparently have a much more boxy and rugged theme in an effort to appeal to current consumer interests. The next Charger, on the other hand, will remain a four-door sedan despite the Daytona concept being a two-door. It will not only be offered as a full BEV, but also an ICE variation running two outputs of the Hurricane 3.0L twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder engine.
Jeep showed off a physical build of the upcoming Recon electric SUV, photos of that can be found below. They also divulged information on the future of the Cherokee compact crossover. It will apparently adopt a mini-Grand Cherokee L design when it debuts in late 2024, potentially with a new name. That name was not revealed at the meeting, reportedly. The Wagoneer 4xe plug-in hybrid that was teased last year should finally be revealed either late this year or early 2024. The Wrangler and Gladiator are receiving refreshes and new configuration options such as a Willys trim for the Gladiator.
Finally, the only news regarding Chrysler’s future plans were the fact that the Pacifica minivan will be getting yet another refresh next year, and the production Airflow EV is still on track for a 2025 on-sale date.
