How did the Dodge brand, a part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), fare in 2019? This year has been a banner one for Dodge. During this year, Dodge has become the current king of the muscle car. Dodge has won plenty of awards, added more vehicles, and improve its muscle car line-up from top to bottom. Dodge created the Dodge Challenger Widebody two years ago, but this year they added the widebody to the Dodge Charger in 2019. FCA has given their vehicles the latest technology and will look to improve their all the vehicles thanks to the massive merger with PSA Groupe. There is so much to recap from the Dodge brand this year, allow us to go over everything that has happened in 2019.

Dodge Headlines In 2019

Among the awards Dodge has earned, one unique form of recognition came from Consumer Reports and its reliability rankings of 2019. Dodge has an on-going debate amongst customers in regards to the splitters added to each Dodge vehicle, should they stay or go (They should go off) after a sale? 2019 saw the Head of the Dodge brand, Steve Beahm, retire. The Mopar Hellephante crate was officially sold out earlier in 2019. More milestones were reached with Dodge and the newest Dodge muscle cars.

Dodge Hits New Milestones

With over 50 years since the inception of the Dodge Challenger, Dodge decided to introduce the latest Dodge Challenger with a new special edition package that celebrates the half-century of the Challenger. The Dodge Charger saw a new SRT Hellcat special edition debut as well. In fact, Dodge made a special edition to celebrate this very vehicle that debuted in the last quarter of 2019. The Dodge Charger Daytona Edition premiered in a limited run, with a slew of body color options. FCA and Dodge put together a new Stars and Stripes Special Edition for both the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger. The latest Dodge vehicles have the newest Uconnect infotainment technology added. 

Dodge Was Focused On Big Results For Customers

The future for Dodge in the muscle car segment has never looked better. Dodge started 2019 by pulling ahead of the Chevrolet Camaro for sales, which was only the start of a year ahead that saw tremendous sales for all Dodge muscle cars. In fact, Dodge has surpassed the Ford Mustang in the third-quarter in terms of overall sales, with the Dodge Challenger finishing first among all major brand muscle cars. Dodge focused on improving the 2020 Dodge Durango, the fastest three-row SUV ever made and worked to send out the Grand Caravan out in style for customers to embrace. 

Lots To Celebrate For Dodge

Dodge and FCA have earned more than awards in 2019. Dodge has sold over 500 million horsepower and looked to celebrate this fact with a contest, the Dodge Horsepower Challenge Contest. This contest invited participants a chance to play and win one of five Dodge Challenger TorRed Special Editions. This year saw a rise in Dodge sales and FCA is set to improve its facilities and keep all their workers happy. A new deal that will see 4.5 million dollars added back resources to the production facilities where FCA products are made was made. Will Dodge continue to work on its electric plans? We’re sure they will. For customers looking to drive away with the latest Dodge vehicles, come to Miami Lakes Automall.

Merger Miami Lakes Automall

FCA Has Completed Their Merge With PSA Groupe

Merger Miami Lakes Automall

An official merge has taken place between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Peugeot, known as PSA Groupe. FCA is the parent company of Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Chrysler after searching almost all of 2019 to find the right partner. The French government that has a significant stake in Peugeot applauded the deal and FCA confirmed the deal on December 18th, 2019. This deal delivers on the hope both companies have to go forward with transforming their vehicles into the 21st century with more electric vehicles, better products, and a greater presence in the automotive world. This new company is  now the fourth-largest automaker in the world, estimated to generate 8.7 million vehicles annually. Both automotive companies are looking to build on their brands, but some may see major changes. PSA Groupe CEO Carlos Tavares has declared he thinks in the history of both companies are a strong backbone of the new company. 

“We love the history of car brands, it gives us a foundation on which we can project ourselves into the future,” said Tavares. 

Changes To Each Current Brand?

Among the automotive brands this new company owns: Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Citroen, Chrysler, DS Automobiles, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, and Vauxhall, we’re certain some changes will happen. Let us share our findings on each one of them and where they may go in the next decade. 

A Closer Look At Each Brand

Abarth, the high-performance line of Fiat’s, has sold just 26,736 vehicles in 2019. Notwithstanding, an increase of 7.4 percent compared to 2018 is nothing to complain about. Alfa Romeo sold less than 100,00 units in 2019 and changes might come to this brand in a big way. FCA CEO Mike Manley spoke of Alfa Romeo adding that all investments would be reduced before the merger was made official. Citroen is a French brand that was founded back in 1919. Citroen is expected to settle apart of the brand despite not having a name that is simple to read and has made no appearance in North America. Chrysler, which is known for the 300 large car and Pacifica minivan, is not expected to grow any more vehicles, but is expected to stay apart of the company. DS Automobiles, a new brand as of 2014 and apart of PSA Groupe’s upscale vehicle brand, we can see this brand growing worldwide. 

Dodge is about as safe as any of their brands, being apart of Chrysler for nearly a century. Fiat sold 1.38 million vehicles last year and is not expected to be removed. Jeep is the one brand that is presumed to grow more than ever with Europe getting to see what the American brand is all about. Lancia only sells one vehicle, the Ypsilon compact car, but sales have gone up significantly this year. This brand is a wild card. Maserati is safe and expected to see seven new models made between 2020 and 2023. Opel is a long-storied brand that made its first vehicle back in 1899. While this brand is only produced in Europe, plans remain to keep this brand apart of the company. Peugeot has an even deeper history that stretches over 200 years and has sold 1.74 million vehicles in 2018, so we are confident this brand will remain a vital cog in the new company. Ram has seen a massive jump with 263,000 more units sold so far this year over last year, and 2018 was Ram’s best year ever. This is a brand that will only grow as a result of this merger. Vauxhall is expected to remain apart of the company going forward.

The 2020 Dodge Journey is known as America’s most affordable midsize crossover, but still offers more than just about any other vehicle in the segment. The Journey goes against the grain of every tradition mid-size SUV, its the only midsize crossover that offers seven-passenger seating. Equipped with over 40 available safety and security features, drivers of the Journey know they have a safe, reliable vehicle. The 2020 Dodge Journey is also quite modern with the latest Uconnect 8.4 Navigation available a powertrain that supplies owners with a complete, top-notch driving experience.

On the Horizon For the Dodge Journey

The future of the Dodge Journey is expected to see efforts to improve the powertrain, which is currently solid with its 2.4-Liter four-cylinder 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. Speaking on behalf of the Dodge Journey, Mopar Insiders has slated the next-generation Journey to come in 2022 or as an early 2023 model. Currently, the Journey is using an 11-year old platform that looks to upgrade sooner rather than later. A change to a rear-wheel-drive is expected to help promote stronger on-road handling, but some speculate an all-wheel-drive option will be made. Other expectations will include a shorter Journey than the current 184.5-inch version currently being sold. 

The 2020 Journey SE Is A Solid Option

The 2020 Dodge Journey is priced at a low starting price of $25,905 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and offers two trim options.

Literally speaking, the 2020 Durango SRT is the fastest three-row SUV ever built. Amongst the competition Dodge faces from the likes of BMW and Porsche, no other rival company has produced any real competition for the Durango SRT. The Dodge three-row SUV carries an incredible 6.4-Liter V8 HEMI engine that affords drivers with a wicked 475 horsepower and impressive 470 lb-ft of torque. Let’s share all the latest features added to this incredible vehicle. Buyers don’t have to opt for a Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger to get a fast vehicle by Dodge. We’ll show you why the latest Durango has earned the respect of other brands and customers everywhere.

All About That Power

There is one other powertrain option for customers to side with, should they not want the massive power of the V8 HEMI, buyers can opt for the trusted  3.6-Liter Pentastar engine that produces 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both powertrains are tied to a smooth Automatic 8-Speed transmission and a vehicle that has been engineered to deliver reliable results even in severe conditions. The Pentastar V6 can tow up to 6,200 pounds while the highest powertrain contributes 8,700 pounds of maximum towing capacity. So, when it comes to towing items, supplying drivers with sufficient strength and adding technology to keep drivers safe while driving. Considered one of the most comfortable SUVs along with being the fastest at its 4.4 second 0-60 time, there’s no vehicle that supplies as much as the new 2020 Dodge Durango.

More Than Just Strong, The Durango Is Rich With Luxury

Keep in mind, Dodge aims to supply comfort for all its customers and passengers. Included in the packages offered by Dodge, the SRT starts at $64,490 MSRP (Plus destination fee) and the technology group package gives adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and forward collision avoidance systems. The nicest materials are added into the SRT, including suede headliner, nicer upgrades along with the instrument panel and carbon fiber inserts that are added with a $2,495.
