The 2024 Chrysler Airflow is rumored to be made into a crossover, with a two-row layout, which would deliver all the good stuff for future electrification purposes. There has been a rumor about the future style of Airflow along with the possibility of electrification technology.
During New York International Auto show, Chrysler showed the midsize Airflow SUV with its two-row arrangement. And then, during CES 2022, they followed the design up with further development. The development showdown has delivered all the advanced styles and tech that we can expect from the company related to future products. The Airflow nameplate was a ‘title’ that had been previously used by the company. According to rumors, the company is planning on using the name once more. They want to resurrect it so they can continue making it to the production stage.
Chrysler is currently a struggling brand with only a sedan (and an aging one) and a minivan in its lineup. It’s quite logical if they want to add a new nameplate to the lineup, and they may start from the Airflow. If the company does make the 2024 Chrysler Airflow, it would be one of its future lines of Chrysler. The Airflow would also be one among 3 electric models being made within the timeline between 2025 and 2028. Chrysler believes that Airflow is their future, especially under Stellantis. It would also be one of the company’s family-oriented tech and brand leaders.
Powertrain and Performance
Stellantis, as the parent company of Chrysler, has developed 4 architectures that are dedicated to future EVs. All the future Chrysler products would be constructed with STLA Large, which would use the first structure in 2024. The Airflow concept itself is planned with a 118 kWh (battery) pack that can cover 400 miles of distance, but Stellantis alone claims that their STLA Large platform can make vehicles cover 500 miles.
Many auto enthusiasts expect one motor (applicable for the entry trim) and also a dual motor setup as the optional pick for the all-wheel driving system. This is the same STLA platform that is also used for the upcoming electric muscle rides for Dodge, especially from the beginning of the 2024 model. However, despite the same platform, the result would be different. For Dodge muscle rides, the result would be punchier and stronger, and for Chrysler models, the outcome would be family-oriented and premium EVs with higher-end performance and softer abilities. The Airflow is focusing on all the perks and benefits of the generously spacious interior, which is imitating the layout made for the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan.
The production EV with Airflow basis would also utilize the new (and sophisticated) STLA Brain technology from Stellantis, especially for the SmartCockpit screens, computers, hardware, and cloud connection. The STLA AutoDriver would offer auto driving level 3.
Trims and Prices
According to plans, there would be several trim levels offered for this Airflow nameplate. The base trim would be the Touring with starting price of $50,000. The next trim would be the Limited with a price tag of $55,000 and the highest one would be the Pinnacle with a pa price tag of $60,000. Details are very limited at this point, including configurations and detailed specs, so we still need to wait for further release.
As it was mentioned before, the price may start from $50,000. For now, there is still conflicting information. Some say that the Airflow would be released as the 2024 model, which means that it would debut in 2023. However, some say that it would be released as 2a 025 models, meaning that it should debut sometime in 2024. Because of the limited information, we need to wait for further updates about the 2024 Chrysler Airflow.
