Stellantis announced earlier this week, that it would invest a total of $229 million in three of its Kokomo, Indiana, plants to help the company reach its goal of achieving 40% low-emission vehicle sales in the U.S. by 2030. This announcement, which will retain 662 jobs, comes three months after the company laid out its long-term electrification strategy, where it committed to investing $35 billion through 2025 in electrification and software.

Stellantis Head of Powertrain Operations, Brad Clark made the announcement during an event at the Kokomo Transmission Plant attended by Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb, Kokomo Mayor Tyler Moore, and United Auto Workers (UAW) Region 2B Director Wayne Blanchard, along with other elected officials and community leaders.

OK, Mopar Willy critics, time to listen to my broken record music again. This is a RWD/AWD transmission. Stellantis lists Chrysler as using this transmission in the future. Can there be a next generation Chrysler 300 in the works? Looks promising to me. Stellantis is playing my favorite song. It’s the “Willy Waltz”.

Not necessarily 300, but it could be another Chrysler

I would truly love for the next-gen Charger to have a hybrid GME-T6 option along with Jeeps to go back to the I-6 setup as well. Okay so the V8 days are numbered, that's cool. But I don't want to see everything switch over to all-electric. Honestly, that's just dumb. As much as I love Hellcats, Demons, Redeyes, Zl1 Camaros and GT500 Mustangs, I feel like the HP wars have gotten a bit extreme. If people want to have that kind of insane HP, then yeah, by all means do the electric thing and have like 1500hp and all that craziness, but for us regular level of crazy people a 500hp-530hp performance car is more than plenty. It's not always about the insanity, sound, feel and just that ability to be an everyday car is really what it's all about. I can only imagine what a Turbo-hybrid 4.0L Hemi-6 would be like seeing that Inline-6s already have strong torque, to add a set of turbos and a hybrid system that would boost low end torque and feel along with having an electric hybrid system that adds more HP/TQ which could easily lead to horsepower being in the 525hp range and torque up closer 630-650lb-ft with an AWD system all around this new 8-speed ZF transmission. Even to have something a little toned down under that pushing around the 425-430hp mark with the GME-T4 pushing 375-390hp which makes all of the upcoming muscle cars (Challenger, Charger, Barracuda, & Hornet) Hybrid vehicles with the electric cars in the mix as well.

How the heck to come up with a way to slip the Chrysler brand into every thread, it is incredibly creative....... maybe Chrysler should be just shelved for Peugeot or Opel, start from scratch, not bother try to revitalize such a negatively thought of brand with anyone that will still be in the car market a decade from now.

Any interest in discussing what this means for Kokomo or overall product planning instead. Seems quite a investment in ICE moving forward or the if not then Transmission'ed BEVs.

Both could be true.... it seems that Transmissions in BEVs is becoming more interested. Under heavy loading the KW usage on pure BEV starts to make them unpractical for towing and heavy use. This may be part of more efficient EV future, adding some complexity back.

Anyway it shows that ICE has a solid future for another full product cycle.
