Have to keep in mind that when GM owned 20% of Fiat there were grand plans. Further have to keep in mind what Fiat wants to do as far as branding. Fiat is also Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Maserati annnnnd Ferrari (some strange financial relationship). So does Fiat envision that Lancia or Alfa can replace Dodge in the U.S. market? Only the VW group maintains a crap load of brands these days. Likely Fiat will attempt to bring Alfa here as GM hoped to. Does that replace Dodge? We'll see. Frankly I doubt it but 5 years ago would we have seen Pontiac and Mercury gone? Maybe not.

I mean

As many dodges as they are selling, I find it difficult to believe they'd give a new identity to almost all of their models.

Charger, avenger, challenger, not to mention vans and stuff... are they all going to be labeled under something different.. I doubt it
2013 GT500
1999 GT- sold
1972 Mach 1- sold
...if you want to compare performance numbers, well, the GT500 retains it's title of the highest hp, worst performing car in the world.

I doubt they will give up that HUGE brand loyalty "just because". The goal is to sell cars.

They're just going to bring alpha romeo cars over and label them Dodge.

Too bad they can't get rid of the Chrysler brand. It only has the 300 and 200.
