In late 2011, the American manufacturer Dodge, then under Fiat ownership, expressed interest in participating in the Global Rallycross Championship. They approached Olsbergs MSE (OMSE) with a proposal to collaborate on the development of the racing cars for the series. However, at the time, OMSE had a close affiliation with Ford.
The green light for this project was granted only after Ford granted OMSE permission to undertake the endeavor. The addition of Dodge as the fourth manufacturer to enter the series alongside Ford, Subaru, and Hyundai was met with enthusiasm. OMSE took charge of the car's design and construction at their facility in Nynäshamn, Sweden, before delivering it to Dodge and their racing team, marking a significant milestone in the Global Rallycross Championship.
