AGT Europe, the official Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Group importer for Dodge and Ram in Europe, plans to bring Dodge and Ram back to the UK as part of an expansion of 100 plus sales & service points across Europe.
The range will comprise the iconic Ram truck, the seven seat, high tech Dodge Durango R/T SUV and the Challenger and Charger muscle cars. Muscle? Oh yes. The Challenger SRT Hellcat is the world's fastest muscle car ever packing 717 horsepower under the hood.
Headquartered in Pfäffikon Switzerland, AGT Europe has sold over 20,000 vehicles since 2001. "The UK is an important step for AGT's expansion in Europe" said Karin Ström, AGT Europe's Head of Business Development, "with the right partners, the segment can be grown to a few hundred cars annually in the coming few years." Ström expects to work with three or four UK dealerships in the UK selling 200 vehicles a year between them. Parts should not be a problem as AGT Europe has a parts and accessories stock facility in Leipzig, Germany where dealers can source all original MOPAR spare parts and accessories.
If you are a potential customer for a new Dodge or Ram, keep your eyes on The American, we'll let you know when they're available. If you are a dealer that shares AGT's enthusiasm for American cars (multi-branded dealers are welcome) and wants to show some serious American muscle on your lot, AGT wants to hear from you.
