Stylantis Unveils the New Dodge GAC GS5 SUV
The company, Stylantis, the Mexico branch, published four pictures of the Dodge SUV with a camouflaged cover and dim lights in red, in a clear indication of the excitement of its customers about a new version, but the pictures indicated that it is the new model of the Dodge GAC GS5.
According to the “Motor 1” website, which specializes in cars, the Dodge GAC GS5 was previously introduced in China, but in the new version it appears that with some differences in design, the camouflage that covers the entire car plays a big role in changing the features of the Dodge camouflage, so the front grille looks much smaller than We see it in a traditional GS5 and it’s probably a trick from Stellants, intentional.
