FCA Brands Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram Strut Into the 2020 Atlanta Auto Show
The 38th Annual 2020 Atlanta International Auto Show takes place from Feb 26 – March 1, 2020 this year at the Georgia World Congress Center. With plenty of automakers showing up with concepts, vehicles from their lineup, and sometimes interactive workshops or seminars for the crowd, one needs to do something different to stand out. Something like introducing a brand-new vehicle lineup, made of handling the sand dunes of the desert? Jeep® and the rest of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group showed up at the 2020 Atlanta International Auto Show with something to put on display, from the family-loving Chrysler Pacifica minivan to the roaring 797-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody.
The Chrysler brand hasn’t had many new vehicles come out since the Chrysler Pacifica and subsequent Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. There was the family-friendly, more-accessible, and safe Chrysler Voyager, but it’s basically the shallow-end of the Chrysler Pacifica lineup with accessibility options for the elderly and handicapped. When Chrysler first released the Pacifica, the automaker was said to have reinvented the minivan, and in many ways it had. Many of us may remember another FCA brand minivan during our early youth, the Dodge Grand Caravan. Practically unchanged in all its time on the market, the Chrysler Pacifica went modern, bringing technology like the all-new Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system to the cabin. Chrysler also offered the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment when the automaker released the Pacifica Hybrid, able to deliver more than 80 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and more than 30 miles of all-electric range, give or take with regenerative braking.
We all love a good muscle car and Dodge outdid themselves with this new factory number. After the limited run of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, and its divided reception, Dodge decided to tweak things a little and produce a vehicle consumers will still want to drive, and not just on the race track. That led us to the new “demon-possessed” Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, able to produce up to 797-horsepower (instead of the 840hp of the SRT Demon) and is officially the new factory produced most powerful and fastest muscle car. The Widebody package option was also extended to the normal SRT Hellcat and even the Dodge challenger R/T Scat Pack trim. Even better, Dodge made the Widebody available to the 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat, Charger Scat Pack, and limited edition 2020 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody Daytona 50th Anniversary Edition.
We all know that Jeep has a Five Year Roadmap that the automaker shared back in 2018, and if any automaker could deliver on its promises, it’s Jeep. Make an electric version of every vehicle in the lineup? Say, “Hello” to the first of their kind, the Jeep Compass 4xe and Renegade 4xe First-Edition Models. Make “off-road” really mean something with more than just “Trail Rated” vehicles. It’s time for “Desert Rated” vehicles with the new 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Edition that debuted at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show. There are also a few mystery vehicles down the road.
Ram Truck Brand
Taking the center stage for Ram at the Atlanta Auto Show is none other than the long-awaited 2020 Ram Power Wagon. The most capable production off-road truck in the industry, the Power Wagon comes equipped with a unique suspension, factory suspension lift, locking front and rear differentials, disconnecting sway bar and a 12,000-pound winch. If this beauty doesn’t steal the show, the new Ram Heavy Duty lineup offers a towing capacity of 35,100 pounds and a payload capacity of 7,680 pounds. These trucks have also set the new benchmarks for comfort, luxury, innovation, and technology, making a day’s work in a truck all the easier.
