Fiat Chrysler has committed to growing the Jeep and Ram vehicle portfolios, according to Automotive News.
At a recent dealer meeting in Las Vegas, FCA told dealers that it would soon produce a mid-size Jeep pickup, a nugget of info that isn’t news to us, and also confirmed that both Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Jeep Wagoneer vehicles would arrive.
In order to make room for the new Jeep pickup and Wagoneer family of SUVs, FCA will end production of the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart. The automaker is currently seeking partners to produce replacements for both cars, it told dealers, allowing the automaker to keep the cars around without affecting production capacity.
“We were told that those [sedans] aren’t going away, but that they’ll be built by someone else,” Don Lee, owner of two Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram stores in Maine, told AN.
Details on future Ram vehicles were not told to AN, however FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne recently said he’d like to see the brand compete in the mid-size pickup segment.
