That article is about Chrysler and Dodge in Australia. I would agree Chrysler is on life support, but Dodge isnt going anywhere.

I have no crystal ball but does Stellantis want to introduce Citroen, Peugeot, and Opel brands unfamiliar to American buyers? Or would it just be easier to rebrand them as Dodge products?

Theyve tried to sell those brands, at least Peugot here before, and the majority of their products are not well suited to the American market. My guess is you wont see them here,

I see that the Dodge Challenger and the Dodge Charger are on identical platforms and sharing mechanicals. The Dodge Durango is based on the Dodge Ram 150 platform. So the entire Dodge (American) line includes Ram pickups and and one automobile platform that sells two ,very similar, models I'm no Yale MBA but that does not look like an robust future for Dodge. PSA only wants the Jeep, Ram, Dodge name brand. Chrysler is in 'Code Blue' and Jeep is more foreign than American. Does it really matter? Probably not.

The Durango is on a platform shared with the Grand Cherokee, its not on the Ram truck platform. The upcoming Grand Wagoneer will be on that Ram 1500 platform

Opel (Germany) and Peugeot (France) were both imported to the US back in the day (Peugeot was MUCH bigger).

My first car was an Opel :)
