Chrysler has unveiled an updated business plan as part of their 2012 earnings report. The chart reveals that the company will launch a variety of new models that weren't included in their original business plan from 2009.
Chrysler has unveiled an updated business plan as part of their 2012 earnings report.
While the chart is a little vague, we can see a number of new models have been added since the company originally unveiled their 2009 business plan following their tie-up with Fiat. Key changes include:
- A facelifted Dodge model in 2013
- Two facelifted Dodge models in 2014 - possibly the Charger and Challenger
- A facelifted Chrysler model in 2014 - possibly the 300
- Three facelifted SRT models in 2014 - possibly the Charger, Challenger and 300
- Four new Fiats in 2015
We can also see Alfa Romeo will be relaunched in North America this year with the 4C. However, it won't be followed by additional models - such as a crossover, roadster and Giulia sedan / wagon - until 2015.
Furthermore, several previously announced vehicles have been delayed by a year or two. The key exception is a mysterious Ram that has been pushed back three years to 2016.
The product chart leaves a lot of unanswered questions, but Chrysler and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne was adamant that the company's brand will not "invade each other's turf."
