Anyone have any ideas?
Too bad then Auto-Union name rights is owned by VW because it would had fit.
Global Motors (to tease and annoy GM)
The world mixed together.
Jeep Peugeot Automobiles
I think they will choose an entirely new and neutral name, at least for the corporation. This will avoid any perceived cultural slights, loss of prominence, etc. Something like "Global Motors" as per the comment above. (But probably not that exact name, lol.) Then the component organizations will be able to keep their names, e.g., "FCA division of Global Motors".
At least that's what I would do if I were suddenly put in charge of the organization in an improbable "King Ralph" scenario.
French Italian American Automobiles: works, if they don’t get sued by the entries that own FIAA.
French Italian American Transportation: no
Peugeot Fiat Chrysler Automobiles: this works.
Fiat Peugeot Chrysler Automobiles: no, because the acronym can easily be made into something derogatory (use your imagination).
Dodge: I like this!
Ram: not as good as Dodge, but still good.
Back in the mid 1980's, Fox Television was working on a concept for a sitcom revolving around a highly dysfunctional American family. The original working title was "Not the Cosbys!". That title eventually got dropped in favor of "Married With Children".
In that spirit, let's call the company "Not GM!"
But seriously...they'll probably go with something bland and inoffensive...like "Alpine Motors".
Building upon this (and because there's no acknowledgement of the US in this name), how about Alpine American Motors?
IMC International Motors Corporation
Probably too close to IBM though which means bureaucracy and no fun.
Automobile Arts Cooperation
Now that I think of it...this could get modernized a bit by going with "Alpine Mobility".
In the ultimate ego trip for John Elkann..."EXOR Mobility"
That's a very good question ^^^
After having had AlFiat.... what about Alfeugeot? At least here in Europe...
Wouldn't be surprised if it's called PFCA.
Some Alfiats were very good like 156 and 147. But I don't see what Peugeot can offer to Alfa Romeo brand. Same with Jeep.
Or "Eco Motors"...….
