Dodge Avenger could go RWD, Chrysler Sebring to move to Fiat platform

Dodge Avenger

As new Chrysler Group LLC CEO Sergio Marchionne shakes up the company’s current lineup, Chrysler is wondering what to do with its mid-sized sedans to make them more attractive against rivals such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and the Ford Fusion. According to a report by Automotive News, the Dodge Avenger could move to a rear-wheel-drive platform while the Chrysler Sebring would be based on a Fiat platform.

The next Avenger would become a little more exciting and could be based on a modified version of the Challenger’s platform, which itself is derived from the Charger and 300 platform. The next Sebring would remain front-wheel-drive and will use a modified Fiat platform that will underpin the upcoming Alfa Romeo Milano.

Official changes will be announced in August, says Automotive News.
