Lots of news has come out from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (Soon to be known as Stellantis) and the future of the Dodge Challenger and Charger muscle car models. FCA has reached a three-year deal with the Canadian auto workers union, known as Unifor, to develop three new variants of the Dodge Charger and Challenger. FCA will infuse a $50 million investment into the Brampton Assembly factory. This site is also going to continue the Chrysler 300 sedan for another three years, starting with the 2021 Chrysler 300 model year. Dodge is ready to offer more for its customers as the Challenger saw 60,997 vehicles sold last year. Dodge also saw its Charger sell 96,935 vehicles and grew by 21%, outselling the Camaro and Mustang.
Dodge Is Used To Generating Excitement
Dodge created a buzz when it came out with the Street Racing Technology (SRT) Hellcat trim, first for the Challenger back in 2015 and then for the Charger by 2018. Dodge then added the SRT Demon and SRT Hellcat Redeye. A new SRT Super Stock debuted this year and for the foreseeable future, we believe Dodge will add a new Barracuda trim option. The muscle car might be called a Cuda, as FCA has filed for a trademark for Cuda. This would be a revival for the Dodge brand, as the Dodge Barracuda was used decades back. This news comes on the heels of two new trims will add a Widebody option. It’s been a great year for Dodge muscle car fanatics.
More On the New FCA Plant Deal
The agreement FCA put together will create a multi-energy vehicle architecture that is set to produce plug-in hybrid and new electric vehicles and create the batteries used with those EVs. The Windsor Assembly Plant will add as many as 2,000 jobs for FCA’s Canadian division. The retooling for the plant will help the plant create and produce these new EVs and the total investment is expected to be around $1.35 billion. A massive investment that will bring new exciting options and create a landmark investment for FCA and Canada.
“FCA has maintained a strong footprint in Canada for nearly a century. Over the last decade, we have invested over $4 billion in our Canadian manufacturing facilities, more than any other OEM in the country and it is our intention to maintain this leadership,” said Mark Stewart, Chief Operating Officer of FCA North America.
