The Future Dodge Lineup


In a marathon session with reporters and analysts today in Michigan, Chrysler officials announced their plans for the future of the company and its U.S. brands. They started things off with Dodge, which will be separate from Ram pickup trucks going forward. The logo (above) will no longer feature the Ram head, just the word Dodge.
The company also plans to have 11 new or thoroughly redesigned models on the road by 2014. The company currently has 10 non-truck models. We detail the future products below with some images from the presentation.

Future Dodge Gauges?




The Caliber interior looks nicer (and redder), but is the quality and the feel of it really improved? It has to feel better, not just look better. It seems that red is the new black, at least for Fiat/Dodge.


The Charger gets best in class power and fuel economy?
What class?
The only competitor is the G8 and it is being killed.

Wow, that's a vastly improved interior.


...will have best-in-class...

Future tense.
