Major overhauls to the Dodge lineup, including shifting the Challenger and Charger to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ new Giorgio platform, have been delayed. Meanwhile, the automaker will stop building the Dart in September and hasn’t said what will replace it. And some models, already long in the tooth, will get extended runs.
Dart: Production ends this month. No replacement plan has been announced.
Journey: Plans to move the Journey onto a shared platform with the Chrysler 200 have been scrapped. Production of the current Journey has been extended to 2018, when it will switch to the Giorgio platform, with production moving from Mexico to Italy.
