Chrysler recently held it’s dealer-only show in Las Vegas. Everyone attending had their phones confiscated so as to prevent any leaked photos. So far, it looks as if they did a good job at hiding everything however here is a written summary from one attendee:
Trackhawk Grand Cherokee was there. Sounded insane. 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, 700hp, starting at $79,999.
(note: le Grand Cherokee Hellcat etait une rumeur solide)
New Jeep Grand Wagoneer – competing with the likes of Land Rover, etc. Likely high end SUV, so great.
New Chrysler full size SUV, looked awesome. Durango size-ish, great design..can’t wait. Even had stow-and-go
Dart R/T and Dart GLH – and the turbo engine (no details) will be available in all trim levels. Best part? Dart GLH starts below $20k. 1.8 turbo hurricane engine On darts.
(le concept Goes Like Hell est de retour )
New Jeep Compass looks good.
New Dodge ram pics were neat, some of the new packages are nice too. The NEW Power Wagon.. holy ****… awesome looking and was on 37’s. 37’s won’t be on the production version, but it’ll have 35’s. Looks like the Ram Rebel on steroids.
Even the mini-van looked so much less mini-van ish but still very well designed.
(contrairement au premieres annonces le Caravan va rester comme modele de base au Canada)
The Dodge ‘Cuda looked good, they had one made in a convertible. Not sure that one will see production, but lighter and smaller than Challenger. (7/8 scale)
(en theorie il est sur le meme chassis que la nouvelle Alfa Romeo Giulia)
New Challenger ADR (American Drag Racer) release was crazy with 315’s on all 4 corners. Rumors of 1000hp?? The unveiling had it coming out of a cage. Ha!
Challenger T/A was a sweet road course car.. upgraded suspension, no rear seat… blacked out top graphics…
Charger Daytona with a 340 Hemi???
They have an SRT Durango in B5 Blue!!
One of the biggest surprises was the NEW CHARGER. Looks like the 99 concept… but so much better. I can’t wait until that hits.
(la nouvelle generation de grosse RWD Chrysler sera concue sur la meme base que les nouvelles Maseratis)
Other notables were the 4500 promaster concept, some Alpha Romeos, which were impressive and Fiats like the 124 Spider and an SUV. Maseratti has some hot cars too.
(la 124 spider est la soeur de la nouvelle Miata, elle va sortir de la meme chaine de montage avec une motorisation italienne et une carrosserie differente)
Biggest surprise at the end though was seeing the new 2017 Wrangler. Not a big departure from the JK, but I’d say it shares nothing with the JK.
