The brand decided to ax the SRT Hellcat trim with the beastly 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8, which is a bit of shame.

The Dodge Intrepid Was a Stealthily Disguised Mitsubishi 3000 GT With the Engine in the Middle
Before embracing the muscle car vibe, Dodge was all about making a halo car able to compete with and even outdo the Corvette. While the fruit of the labor of Dodge’s skunkworks ended up being a front-engined, rear-wheel-drive gorilla of a car that’s glorified even almost 30 years after its launch, the story could’ve been entirely different if a largely forgotten concept from 1988 had been given the upper hand. That concept was the Intrepid.

1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee
The Dodge Coronet was first introduced in 1949 as one of the company’s first post-war body style. Production spanned over four generations until it was discontinued in 1959. The nameplate returned in 1965 on the B-body platform, shared with the Plymouth Belvedere and Road Runner and the Dodge Charger among other Mopar vehicles. The sixth and seventh generations followed in 1971 and 1975, but the Coronet was discontinued for good in 1976. Arguably the most iconic version of the Coronet was that produced between 1968 and 1970 when the nameplate was also involved in Detroit’s muscle car wars.
After three years on the market, the fifth-generation Coronet was redesigned in 1968, as was the Dodge Charger, which shared the B-body platform. The facelift brought a more aggressive design, new appearance packages, and upgraded engines. Dodge even introduced a station wagon version of the Coronet 500, but the star of the lineup was obviously the range-topping Super Bee trim. This version was produced from1968 through 1971 model years only and was Dodge’s version of the successful Plymouth Road Runner.

Fiat Chrysler is issuing a recall for 2011-through-2015 Dodge Journey with the 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine. The decorative engine cover may disengage from its retainers and move around inside the engine bay. In the event the cover contacts the exhaust manifold, it can lead to a fire in the engine bay. The recall also applies to the Fiat Freemont – a rebadged version of the Journey that is sold outside of the U.S. market. There is a total of 349,731 vehicles included in the recall, with 144,416 in the U.S. alone. Another 46,231 were sold in Mexico and 43,679 in Canada. The remaining 115,405 were sold in various markets outside of North America. The problem was discovered after three vehicles burned while traveling on rough roads in Chile, South America.
If you own a Journey and you’re the original owner, Fiat Chrysler will contact you by mail to let you know your vehicle is part of the recall. If you are not the original owner or if you don’t want to wait for the notice, you can visit http://recalls.mopar.com and enter your vehicle’s VIN to check for any applicable recalls. Chrysler plans to fix the potential problem free of charge by installing better retainers for the engine cover. The recall No. is R32 and is planned to begin on August 26, 2015.

Over the course of the last year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has purportedly delayed the redesign or release of at least 12 current or new vehicles in North America.
Citing suppliers familiar with the company’s plans, Reuters is reporting that the large number of delays could possibly stem from the automaker’s desire to defer billions of dollars in investments while it searches for a new partner. FCA chief exec Sergio Marchionne has said in the past that he favors consolidation, which would save on capital put toward the creation of overlapping engines and vehicles. Last-minute design and engineering changes are also among suspected explanations for the delays.
The list of program postponements mentioned by the sources is long. It includes the redesigned Ram 1500 delayed from mid-2017 to November 2017, the redesigned Jeep Wrangler delayed from early 2017 to July 2017, the redesigned Jeep Grand Cherokee delayed from 2017 to 2018, the Jeep Patriot/Compass replacement delayed six months from an original launch date in the spring of 2016, the redesigned Dodge Dart delayed from mid-2016 to 2019/20, the redesigned Charger delayed from mid/late 2018 to 2019, the redesigned Challenger delayed from mid/late 2018 to 2019, and the redesigned Chrysler 300 delayed from mid/late 2018 to 2019.
The supposed delays contradict a five-year, $50 billion plan outlined in May of last year, which also included boosting annual global sales to 7 million by 2018, up from 4.75 million sold last year.
FCA declined to comment on specific model delays, instead telling Reuters that the 2014 plan was “a five-year snapshot” of the company’s strategy going forward.
“Those plans need to be flexible and fluid, with the potential to add some vehicles, pull some forward and extend the life cycle of others. We look at these programs on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis,” the company said.
