Mercury (Hobart) - Motoring - - FIND YOUR NEXT CAR ON -

Aus­tralia could get a third Amer­i­can mus­cle car in a cou­ple of years, with Fiat Chrysler Au­to­mo­biles look­ing at pro­duc­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of the Dodge Charger and Chal­lenger in right-hand drive.

The next gen­er­a­tion was orig­i­nally due in 2018 but ac­cord­ing to US me­dia re­ports the launch has been moved back to 2020 or 2021.

Fiat-Chrysler is re­port­edly look­ing at a ma­jor up­date to the cur­rent cars in 2019, be­fore de­vel­op­ing all-new mod­els based on the same un­der­pin­nings as ei­ther Alfa’s Romeo’s Gi­u­lia or Maserati’s Ghi­bli.

Fiat-Chrysler Aus­tralia won’t com­ment on the plans, other than to con­firm it has “a live busi­ness case” lodged with the US for the next gen­er­a­tion cars.
