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.
