Dodge may be done with its legendary V8 engines, as order books for the Charger and Challenger muscle cars close at the end of July, but that doesn't mean its entire lineup is switching to EV power. New rumors from Motortrend hint at the arrival of a new hybrid SUV, and while it's no Charger or Challenger replacement, it's better than nothing.


MT reports that the new SUV will return the Stealth name to Dodge's lineup. Its last application was a two-door coupe, which shared its roots with the Mitsubishi 3000GT before it was dropped in 1996. The new-age Stealth will come as a replacement for the existing Durango three-row, as the SUV's current generation is over a decade old.




The new Stealth will of course have a unibody layout, with MotorTrend suggesting that it may use the new STLA Large platform from Stellantis, which supports both hybrid and all-electric powertrains. However, there's also a chance that it could use the WL platform that currently underpins the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. If Dodge went that route, it would likely make the Stealth a rebadged version of the three-row Jeep.


Like we said before, the rumored SUV will use hybrid power in lieu of a naturally-aspirated V8. It will apparently pair its hybrid system with Jeep's new Hurricane 3.0 liter twin-turbo inline-six. That means the Stealth will still pack plenty of power, though we won't see the new powertrain fully in action until it first arrives in the Jeep Wagoneer 4xe next year.


As for the Durango, the end of the current model's run won't be the last for the nameplate. MotorTrend says that a new body-on-frame fullsize SUV will carry the Durango badge, and it will be based on the same underpinnings as the Jeep Wagoneer. It will be a more affordable Chevy Tahoe rival in comparison to the Jeep, which focuses more on luxury.


MotorTrend thinks the new Dodge Stealth will arrive later in 2024 with a price tag of around $40,000, while the larger Durango will likely join the lineup later.

Dodge Might Bring Back Stealth Name For Three-Row Durango Replacement

The Durango will move on to become a body-on-frame companion to the Jeep Wagoneer.
