This November will bring production of the redesigned Jeep Wrangler, which will be bigger and more fuel-efficient following its first redesign in more than a decade. And in January, FCA will launch production of its redesigned Ram 1500 light-duty pickup, which has been a priority.
Abandoning the small and midsize sedan segment opened room in FCA's manufacturing footprint to add vehicles such as the coming Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer while continuing the resurrection of the Alfa Romeo brand. The Chrysler brand will expand beyond the Pacifica and the 300, while the Dodge Journey will transform to more closely resemble a budget Alfa Romeo Stelvio. And the ancient Dodge Grand Caravan will soldier on and on.
Still, FCA's product planning remains the most fluid of any major carmaker and is often subject to change.
