Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is playing to its strengths with a barrage of crossovers in the pipeline and revamped pickups. It's also diversifying powertrain options on models such as the Wrangler and Gladiator.
The Jeep brand is bringing out plug-in hybrid and diesel-powered versions of the Wrangler for the 2020 model year, while making its EcoDiesel engine available on the versatile Gladiator midsize pickup. Plug-in hybrid versions of the next-generation Grand Cherokee, the upcoming Wagoneer and a three-row Jeep that will be built in Detroit could be in the cards as well. FCA in February said its Detroit assembly plants will produce plug-in hybrid versions of their Jeep models with flexibility to build fully battery-electric models in the future.
Ram, meanwhile, is offering its EcoDiesel engine in the 1500 Rebel for the first time for the 2020 model year.
Both brands will compete with rosters full of fresh products in the years ahead. The future of FCA's other brands aren't as clear cut.午夜剧院
