What's in, what's out at the new Chrysler: 13 new Fiats by 2013
Thursday 05 November 2009
On November 4, Chrysler unveiled its first five-year plan based on its new alliance with Italy's Fiat, laying out which models Chrysler will cut, which cars Chrysler will keep and what new cars they will produce based on Fiat's designs.
Part-owned by Fiat, part-owned by the US taxpayer, but in huge trouble all over: Chrysler's new plan couldn't wait much longer.
A staggering 13 new models from Fiat will soon be produced by Chrysler, covering everything from small cars to large vans. Chrysler is keeping just 12 of its vehicles, discontinuing seven models.
