Dodge drives forward as a pure performance brand, offering SRT versions of every model across the lineup. For the 2022 model year, Dodge delivers the drag-strip dominating 807-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock, the 797-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Redeye, the most powerful and fastest mass-produced sedan in the world, and the Dodge Durango SRT 392, America's fastest, most powerful and most capable three-row SUV. Combined, these three muscle cars make Dodge the industry's most powerful brand, offering more horsepower than any other American brand across its entire lineup.

In 2020, Dodge was named the "#1 Brand in Initial Quality," making it the first domestic brand ever to rank No. 1 in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS). In 2021, the Dodge brand ranked No. 1 in the J.D. Power APEAL Study (mass market), making it the only domestic brand ever to do so two years in a row.

Dodge is part of the portfolio of brands offered by leading global automaker and mobility provider Stellantis. For more information regarding Stellantis (NYSE: STLA), please visit www.stellantis.com.

Here's what a Mopar blog reported about the upcoming reveal:
Stellantis Announces Dates For Dodge, Jeep®, & Ram Electrified Events!
We Will Learn A Lot More Information About The Electrification Of The Chrysler Group...
During its First-Half (H1) Results for 2022, Stellantis released some important dates regarding key electrified vehicle programs for its North America operations. Three brands (Dodge, Jeep®, & Ram) are expected to unveil details about their future electric plans during those dates. We figured we would take a look at the schedule and go over what to expect with each unveiling.

Dodge –

In just a couple of weeks, America’s performance brand will show off two vehicle electrification programs. On August 16th and 17th, the Dodge brand will announce what they are calling their “Gateway” and “Future” muscle vehicles during the “Dodge Speed Week” event, just before this year’s iconic Woodward Dream Cruise.

The Gateway vehicle should be the official unveiling of the 2023 Dodge Hornet (GG). If you have been following MoparInsiders.com, you know that the Hornet is based on the all-new Alfa Romeo Tonale and will be produced in Italy. The new C-SUV will feature a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain and will be the brand’s first electrified product to come to market.

Now the Tonale and Hornet will share the Compass 4xe’s PHEV system. However, in the Tonale, a larger 15.5-kWh battery pack is used rather than the 11.4-kWh system found on the Compass 4xe. We aren’t sure if the Hornet will use the same battery pack as the Tonale or the smaller pack found on the Compass, to keep pricing down.

The PHEV powertrain will use two electric motors with a fuel-efficient 1.3-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. This architecture provides two cars in one – a battery-electric vehicle featuring an electric motor (e-motor) and a high-voltage lithium-ion battery pack on the rear axle and a conventional vehicle with an internal combustion engine (ICE) fitted on the front axle, creating all-wheel-drive (AWD).

For North America, the Tonale Q4 PHEV will deliver a total output of 275 horsepower (180 horsepower from the ICE and the rest from its e-motor. It allows the Tonale to run from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) acceleration in just 6.2 seconds while allowing the vehicle to have an all-electric range of up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) in the city cycle and 37.2 miles (60 kilometers) when city and highway are combined.

As for the Future muscle offering, it should be a conceptual version of the next-generation Dodge Challenger (LB). The next-generation Challenger will start production in 2023, as a 2024 model and will offer both ICE and battery-electric vehicle (BEV) powertrains.

The new “eMuscle” car should have a dual e-motor setup producing an output of more than 800 horsepower. A teaser video during the automaker’s EV Day 2021 presentation, previewed the muscle car and showcased its AWD capability. It will be based on the new STLA Large architecture, an evolution from the current Giorgio platform underpinning the Grand Cherokee (WL), Alfa Romeo Stelvio (GU), and Alfa Romeo Giulia (GA).

From what we are told, the car should blend some retro muscle car cues with a more modern look. The new electrified eMuscle car should easily be quicker than the drag-racing-oriented 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. We expect the new eMuscle cars to be similar in size to the current Challenger (LA).

Jeep has made no secret about its intentions to bring electrification across all of its models. The brand will be holding a “4xe Day” event sometime in September. The event should introduce several of the automaker’s intentions to bring PHEV options to North America.

We expect that Jeep will introduce its updated 2023 Jeep Renegade 4xe to the world and will make an official announcement that the Renegade and Compass 4xe models will be arriving in North America in 2024. Our sources have stated that we can expect a Jeep Gladiator 4xe to arrive sometime in 2024 as a 2025 model.

While Jeep calls the event 4xe Day, we also expect the American adventure brand to state some facts on the new global Jeep “Junior” or “Jeepster” (JJ) B-SUV, as well as electrified options for the Wagoneer lineup.

There might also be some information on the upcoming next-generation Cherokee (KM). Another vehicle is scheduled to be based on the STLA Large architecture and offer ICE and BEV powertrain offerings.

The Ram brand is kicking off its Revolution plans in November. Two key products are scheduled for production in the next couple of years, bringing full electrification to the “Built To Serve” brand.

The brand’s first electrified vehicle will be the Ram ProMaster BEV. We have talked a lot about the ProMaster BEV in recent months, even showing pictures of the full-size van testing in Italy. Based on the Fiat Professional E-Ducato, we know a lot about the features of the ProMaster BEV.

With a 79-kWh battery, the E-Ducato can travel up to 280 kilometers (174 miles) in the Worldwide harmonized Light-duty vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) cycle, equivalent to 370 kilometers (230 miles) in the urban cycle. It takes no longer than 30 minutes to charge up enough to drive 100 kilometers (62 miles).

In terms of flexibility, to meet such a wide and diverse range of needs, the E-Ducato also offers a Drive Mode Selector. In its “Normal” position, it ensures the ideal balance between performance and costs, or it can be set to “Eco” mode to save energy. When a really heavy load needs to be carried or the vehicle is facing a demanding ascent, the right choice is “Power” mode. E-Ducato has another two features to provide its drivers with peace of mind –
  • “Turtle Mode” – similar to the battery saver function on a cellphone. It is activated automatically when the battery is low and limits vehicle performance, to make the battery last 8 to 10% longer.
  • “Recovery Mode” – If one battery module does not work, the other takes its place to make sure it can keep going.
Amazon has already committed to purchasing the Ram ProMaster BEV for its fleet of delivery vehicles. Ram is offering the 2023 ProMaster with a roll-up rear door for the first time ever. There has even been word about Ram offering a side delivery door option, making deliveries even more convenient for its future van lineup.

A couple of months ago, Ram introduced RamRevolution.com, a hub to provide consumers with a closer connection with the brand and its electric-vehicle (EV) philosophy, meaningful updates with unique visuals, content, and an ongoing dialogue that will include the opportunity to provide input as Ram EV trucks are developed. Ram has also been engaging customer feedback with their “Ram Real Talk Tour” series, about what their vehicles must do to meet the needs of the customer going forward.

Ram has also made it no secret, that it plans on introducing a concept vehicle of its upcoming 2024 Ram 1500 BEV sometime later this year. Ram CEO, Mike Koval, Jr. has mentioned in interviews that the Ram 1500 BEV concept will not be the product seen on the road in 2024 but instead will be a vision that the brand sees the direction of the Ram 1500 to be headed in the near future. He also mentioned that the design was not set in stone, in other words, it is an important tool for Ram to see if its direction is what its customer base is expecting.
