Dodge will no longer sell trucks going forward--the Ram lineup will become its own brand. That means that Dodge will become a car-only brand, and early indications are that it will be performance-oriented. Here is a year by year look at what's in store for the brand, with a big tip of the hat to the Kicking Tires blog at Cars.com:
2009: For the immediate future, changes are small. The Caliber compact car receives a new interior, new whees, and a different set of content and trim packages.
2010: The new seven-passenger crossover SUV will arrive, and redesigned versions of the Charger and Grand Caravan will go on sale, with the Grand Caravan getting a new engine. The Journey crossover and Avenger mid-size sedan will be refreshed (both receive new engines), and Viper production will cease in July.
2012: Cars.com reports that Dodge will unveil a new subcompact hatchback and a new compact sedan, both based on Fiat platforms.
2013: Not only will the Viper be replaced with a sports car that will have Fiat underpinnings, but Dodge will also replace the Avenger with a mid-size sedan based on a Fiat platform, according to Kicking Tires.
Next up: Jeep.
