Dodge will make a splash in Atlanta with the popular throw-back 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker model. The new 2014 R/T Shaker model features unique throw-back muscle car cues that link directly to the Dodge brand's performance legacy. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that "shakes" with the powertrain's movement.
Among the many Ram trucks on display will be the 28 mpg 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, named Motor Trend "Truck of the Year." For those who need even bigger trucks, the 2014 Ram 2500 with an all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 will be on the show floor along with the Ram ProMaster -- the latest entry into the full-size cargo van segment from the Ram Truck brand.
2014 Fiat 500L
The FIAT brand display will include the 2014 Fiat 500L, the focus of the new global advertising campaign "Mirage" that introduces the new Fiat 500L tagline, "Unbelievably Big."
