Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is apparently committed to shifting the next generations Dodge Challenger and Charger to the same architecture underpinning the Maserati Ghibli.

AutoNews reports that with this move, the two models will become lighter, and more fuel efficient, compared to their predecessors, and both of them are expected to debut in 2021.

However, until the FCA-owned brand will be ready to pull the covers off, the Challenger and Charger will be facelifted one last time in 2019, and additional versions are believed to be rolled out before the new generations come, in order to keep customers interested.

The Dodge Journey will also live on, with an entirely new iteration that's said to arrive in 2019, underpinned by the Grigio platform, which will be shared with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Moreover, the new Journey will be produced in Italy, instead of Mexico, and it will be offered with seating for five.

Dodge axed Grand Caravan last month, as it didn't comply with safety regulations, but the minivan will return in 2019, with a refreshed design, as will the Durango three-row SUV.

There are still no plans for a successor of the Viper, and things don’t look particularly good for the Barracuda either, a 2-door convertible that was previously rumored, since the Charger and Challenger will move to a new platform, and the Dart compact car won't be replaced either, after production had ended last year.
