Stellantis Shows Dealers Its Future Portfolio In Las Vegas

Concepts, Future Product, & New Technologies Highlight Dealer Meeting...

Stellantis, the multinational automaker created by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Peugeot S.A., held its first dealer meeting in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand. The event, called the Stellantis Dealer Business Meeting 2023, showcased Stellantis’ future plans as the industry moves towards electrification.

Dealers were given a glimpse of several future and conceptual vehicles, including the Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept, Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee, Ram 1500 Revolution Battery-Electric Vehicle (BEV) Concept, Wagoneer S BEV, Jeep® Recon 4xe BEV, and other Mopar concepts. This was the first time that dealers were able to see each of these electrified offerings up close and under one roof.

Attendees at the event enjoyed a reception with entertainment by The Chainsmokers. The following day, dealers were given a sneak peek at upcoming highlights in the automaker’s production portfolio for the next seven years, beyond the concept vehicles showcased at the reception. However, no photography was permitted.

Some dealers have shared photos of the reception and the concept vehicles showcased there, offering a glimpse of some of the electrified offerings that were teased.

The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept is a new design from Chrysler that showcases a sleek, sophisticated Galaxy Black exterior body color with Cyprus Copper accents both inside and out. It highlights the brand’s commitment to launch its first BEV by 2025 and a full battery-electric portfolio by 2028.

The concept features leading-edge drive-system technology, intuitive AI, and connected-vehicle technology that delivers up to 400-mile range and fast-charging functionality. The Airflow’s seamlessly connected STLA SmartCockpit, powered by STLA Brain, enables a personalized experience for every passenger. The vehicle includes STLA AutoDrive for Level 3 autonomous driving capabilities, which can be upgraded via OTA updates.

Production of the 5-passenger Airflow is expected to begin at the end of 2024.

Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee Concept –

The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept represents a significant step towards the future of electrified muscle cars. It combines classic Dodge design elements with innovative, patent-pending features to create a unique driving experience that is pure Dodge.

The R-Wing front aerodynamic wing is a key feature of the concept, providing aerodynamic efficiency while retaining the iconic Dodge profile. The Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust is an industry-first for an electric vehicle, delivering a performance sound that rivals the SRT HELLCAT. And the eRupt multi-speed transmission with electro-mechanical shifting offers a pure Dodge driving experience.

The Charger Daytona SRT Concept is powered by a new 800-volt Banshee propulsion system, which helps to revolutionize the look of a BEV while still offering subtle nods to Dodge’s muscle car legacy. Illuminated Fratzog badges on the front grille and taillamp symbolize the electrified future of Dodge, while also highlighting the brand’s commitment to its performance heritage.

According to reports from sources, the highly anticipated Charger Daytona SRT will be available in a four-door model, and it is expected to hit the market next year. In addition to this, a two-door Challenger model is rumored to be introduced later this summer. Both the Charger and the Challenger are scheduled to go into production at the Windsor Assembly Plant, with the aim of releasing them as 2024 models.

Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept –

Although the Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept is drastically different than the production model Ram 1500 REV pickup shown during this year’s Super Bowl, Ram continues to show the 1500 Revolution, which serves as a vision for the future of Ram trucks. The concept features a new design language that includes modernized badging and headlight design, and a grand saloon-style door opening that showcases a spacious interior without a B-pillar. The interior layout is flexible, with a removable center console and third-row jump seats that can be configured in various seating arrangements.

The Ram 1500 Revolution BEV Concept is built on a new STLA Frame body-on-frame architecture designed specifically for full-size electric vehicles. It features two electric drive modules, all-wheel-drive capability, and four-wheel steering with up to 15 degrees of articulation for greater maneuverability. It also offers up to 100 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes with 800-volt DC fast charging at up to 350 kW.

Ram’s electrified solutions will be part of the entire Ram lineup in the years to come. The Ram 1500 BEV will be a leader in range, towing, payload, and charge time, and it will redefine the pickup truck segment. Ram continues to build on its list of industry-shaping features, and the 1500 BEV Concept provides an ultra-modern vision for the future of Ram trucks.

Ram’s first electric pickup, the Ram 1500 REV is scheduled to begin production at the end of 2024.

Last year, Jeep announced a new fully-electric SUV codenamed the “Wagoneer S”. This vehicle will be equipped with 4×4 capability, advanced technology, and impressive performance capabilities, making it a unique addition to the premium SUV segment. The all-electric Wagoneer S will have a sleek and aerodynamic design, featuring a signature LED-lit grille and an iconic Wagoneer side profile.

Based on the STLA Large architecture (shared with the Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept and Dodge Charger Daytona SRT), the Wagoneer S will be exclusively offered as BEV and is expected to achieve a range of 400 miles on a single charge, 600 horsepower, and a 0 to 60 mph time of around 3.5 seconds. The SUV will be built with all-terrain management and advanced Jeep brand-focused technology, giving it exceptional off-road capabilities. Production is set to begin in 2024 at a plant in North America.

The Jeep Recon is set to make waves in the North American market as one of the first all-new electric SUVs. This vehicle is designed for adventurers who crave near-silent exploration with the added benefits of a rugged, fully electric package. With the Recon, Jeep has created a 100% zero-emission, 100% Jeep 4×4 SUV that will be offered exclusively as a BEV.

Off-roading enthusiasts will appreciate the true trail-rated capability of the Jeep Recon, thanks to its Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system, e-locker axle technology, under-body protection, tow hooks, and aggressive off-road tires. Additionally, the Recon offers an authentic Jeep open-air experience with a one-touch powertop, removable doors, and glass. The latest generation Uconnect system, complete with detailed travel guides of the most notable off-road trails, will further enhance any adventure.

Jeep is confident that the all-new electric Recon will appeal to adventurers worldwide. According to Jeep CEO Christian Meunier, the Recon has the capability to cross the challenging Rubicon Trail and reach the end of the trail with enough range to drive back to town and recharge. The Jeep Recon will be displayed to the public in 2023, with production starting in North America in 2024. Customers in the U.S. will be able to make reservations for the new Jeep Recon BEV SUV soon, with availability in major markets around the world, including Europe.

The Recon looks...ugly.

The Challenger looks ok...That's one hell of a D pillar.

The split-screen infotainment (two separate screens) for Driver odometers and center stack infotainment look old/cheap compared single pane of glass / 33-inch OLED on Cadillac Lyriq, which will now be standard on the MCA'ed 2024 Cadillac XT4.

Ralph needs to fix the infotainment design and bring it up to what Cadillac is doing.

These vehicles shown are currently concepts, thank god, as they all need work to be viable. I’ll start from my thoughts on most viable to least in my opinion.
Overview- The big elephant in the room is electrification as it applies to each. I’ve well addressed my doubts and reservations on brands adopting an all electric portfolio in spite of outlandish, unfounded and oppressive government regulations, so I’ll pass on that. Ugly elephant though.
Recon- This Jeep is a winner and can be launched with little modification as an electric SUV. Jeep genius in going after Bronco not by altering Wrangler, but building a better Bronco. Genius.
Wagoner S- Another winner needing some minor tweaks, but also delivers a traditional Jeep design in an all electric package that, genius again, takes pressure off Cherokee and Grand Cherokee to keep the Hurricane engines for decades. If the Cherokee is an affordable spin off of this Jeep, with a straight six engine, a tad larger and wider than currently configured, is a double winner for Jeep.
Charger- I dig the Banshee, it is a necessary product for Dodge, but the concept is neither fish or fowl because though strikingly beautiful, as a fastback coupe it is not the four door sedan Dodge has spent a decade or more establishing as a four door alternative for performance buyers. Charger must be four doors and of course Hurricane powered to be viable. The coupe will be the Challenger and that too will need Hurricane power to survive with real world buyers. That ugly elephant is weighing on Dodges future and the Banshee intrudes on the viability of that future. This needs extensive refinement.
Airflow- Best part, the name, good part, most likely though to lead Chrysler into an all electric future without an elephant tagging along as Chrysler can and should be a Tesla fighter design in a more affordable near luxury niche, worst part, unimpressive, dull styling and awkwardly configured design. This one needs extensive work and a Chrysler design signature has yet to be found, this is not it! Chrysler would do well to build a next generation 300 sedan and some kind of elegant coupe to make the Airflow work. This concept, if not dramatically altered could sink the entire Chrysler brand. This concept is neither trend setting or distinctive of Chrysler heritage. Not viable.
What I’d really like to know is what dealers saw behind closed doors. Can’t wait.

Damn the Recon sits low to the ground. Look how far below the centerline of the wheels the rocker is.
