The Chrysler Group, which has just emerged from bankruptcy, lost 36% of their sales in the United States in 2009, and the numbers are continuing to look bad in 2010 as well. The brands that Chrysler sells have been reorganized by Fiat, who has recently become Chrysler’s production partner following their bankruptcy, and now the company is waiting for new vehicles to arrive from Fiat starting in 2011. They are also planning on introducing several new editions and variants of models currently in existence, though this is merely a stopgap until they can figure out what to do with the new influx of cars from Fiat.
The auto transport industry has been aware of Chrysler’s problems for a while now, and many shipping companies that used to work with Chrysler are no longer able to due to their loss of revenue. But Chrysler now wants to change that and they’re planning on introducing new special editions of their 300 sedan line including the S6 and the S8.
Dodge is also offering new packages for vehicles, called “Journey,” which will go into effect with the Caliber, Nitro, Avenger and Charger models, and Jeep is going to introduce the Liberty Renegade, the Wrangler Islander and the Wrangler Mountain models in the next year or two.
