The recent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Capital Markets Day featured a blizzard of news about new models, with the group’s major brands revealing their five-year plans for the benefit of financial analysts.

Having covered the event, it was hard to take in all the announcements at once. Huge model reveals were made almost in passing, and much of the news left you wanting for more information. Having had time to digest it all, here are the seven new models that most excited and intrigued me.

They aren’t necessarily the most significant cars announced at the event – just the ones that I’m excited to hear more about. Let us know which cars intrigued or excited you in the comments section.

FCA Group to focus on most profitable models and brands 

7: Alfa Romeo GTV

Earlier this year Autocar exclusively reported that Alfa Romeo was developing a high-performance Giulia coupé. And we were right – except it won’t be called the Giulia coupé.

Instead, the firm has dipped into its rich history and dusted off the GTV nameplate. It’s a nice touch, and demonstrates how, even as Alfa expands through large SUVs and Chinese-only long wheelbase cars, it can do so by capitalising on its past.


6: Jeep Grand Cherokee Deserthawk

Jeep believes it can grow its position in the SUV market because its history of making off-road 4x4s gives it ‘authenticity’. And that’s why the firm has developed the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and Trackhawk, flagship models designed to deliver high performance thrills on and off-road respectively.
