DETROIT -- Chrysler Group will refine its product strategy this week with a slew of new models from Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat and Alfa Romeo in a marathon strategic briefing Tuesday in Auburn Hills.
Among other news, expect:
- A redefinition of Dodge centered on American muscle.
- Only the Chrysler brand will sell the next generation of the minivan. The product-starved brand will add models in segments where it doesn't currently compete.
- Jeep to announce plans for new vehicles built and engineered in America, along with added production of the Cherokee and Renegade in Asia and Latin America.
- Ram to add more commercial vehicles.
- Alfa Romeo to introduce several new models in 2015-16, with more to follow as the brand strives for a broad model line to compete with Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Lexus and other leading luxury brands.
- New models to advance Fiat's evolution into a specialist in small, creatively styled cars and crossovers. First up, the 500X small crossover SUV in 2015.
- Ferrari to commit to new cars in new segments, but the exotic car specialist will never build a four-door car.
- Maserati to announce plans for more high-end luxury cars and crossovers.
