Chrysler’s five-year plan also hinted of a plug-in hybrid variant, but the company has not revealed specifics. Also, a new electric-assisted All Wheel Drive system is in place. The system uses a rear single electric motor to power the rear wheels whenever there is slippage. No driveshift is required to power the rear wheels. Every model is slated to have a backup camera along with leather seating, power liftgate, and a power side sliding door. The touchscreen display will support Androids while backseat riders will have their own USB ports.
