The Durango SUV is due for a redesign in 2019, which will be a busy year for Dodge products.
Dodge has ditched plans, for now, to move the Challenger and Charger onto Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' new Giorgio platform, choosing instead to put the two LX models through yet another refresh cycle. The next step will be a redesign for both models onto the platform underpinning the Maserati Ghibli.
Dart: Production has ended. The compact car will not be replaced.
Journey: While the Chrysler brand will fill the midsize, three-row crossover segment for FCA in 2019, the Journey will live on for Dodge as a rear-wheel-drive, two-row performance crossover on the Giorgio platform, which it will share with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Production of the Journey successor will move from Mexico to Italy.
Charger: Dodge plans to freshen the Charger one more time in 2019 before a full redesign in 2021 onto the platform currently used by the Ghibli. Sources say key drivers of the freshening will be to pull out weight and make other modifications to improve fuel economy on the large sedan.
Challenger: Like the Charger, the Challenger will see one more freshening in 2019 before a full redesign in 2021 onto the Ghibli's platform. Until then, continued buzz models will fill any drops in consumer interest.
Barracuda: The fate of a two-door convertible that had been planned to accompany the Charger and Challenger redesigns in 2021 is unknown because of the switch in their platform strategies.
Grand Caravan: The Grand Caravan had been slated to end production in August because the minivan did not comply with side airbag regulations. It will be freshened to comply and will continue at least through 2019.
Durango: The large three-row SUV is scheduled to be redesigned in 2019.
Viper: Production of the Viper ended in August. No plans have been announced for a replacement.
