Stellantis Rumored to Bring Back The Dodge Stealth and a New Gas-Powered Charger
Stellantis recently held its invite-only Dealer Business Meeting in Las Vegas last week where dealer representatives gathered to view the latest incoming models and concept vehicles being developed by the automaker. But based on comments in a now-deleted Reddit post, Dodge has some interesting plans for its incoming lineup.
Is The Dodge Stealth Coming Back?
The first rumor is that with the shifting tastes and demographics in the market, the Dodge Durango SUV will soon be retired.
Speaking of things retired, another rumor floating around the event was that Stellantis intends on bringing back the Dodge Stealth. But not as the sporty coupe from the mid-1990’s. Instead it is believed that the Stealth will return as a three-row SUV, replacing the family-friendly Dodge Durango. Attendees from the event have claimed that while the future Dodge Stealth will retain an SUV’s standard three-row arrangement, it will be housed in a completely different body that future customers will find more visually attractive.
In a way, this suggests that the Dodge Stealth will be returning, but in name only. Then again, it is not outside the realm for automakers to expand on model designs covered under a specific name, such as the Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV.
Dodge May Have a New Gas-Powered Charger in the Works
While Dodge’s decision to make the next-generation of muscle cars to be built on an all-electric drivetrain left many hardcore fans split over this decision, there just might be a little ray of hope for those mourning the supposed loss of “true” muscle cars.
That is because while Dodge Charger Daytona SRT EV has been a show-stopper at every big auto event, there may be plans for a new Charger to have an internal-combustion engine option as well. Dodge brand reps allegedly informed dealers that the new ICE Charger would come as a four-door, even though many muscle car fans tend to favor the two-door look as seen on the EV Charger. As far as was what kind of engine the ICE Charger would receive, it is rumored that there will be both Standard Output (SO) and High Output (HO) options of the 3.0-liter Hurricane i6.
