    Whatever it is, I want the Pentastar back!

    The biggest challenge may be to find a name that doesn't lend itself to a globally acceptable acronym. In other words: one that, among speakers of a given language, is vulgar, embarrassing, etc.

    I associate PSA with... umm, a medical test for us guys over 50. I decided not to spell it out here. At least the French conglomerate didn't name itself Voitures Diversifiées. ;)

    I don't mean such things as FIAT = Fix It Again, Tony. Nothing can resist such humor. I'm thinking of things like SOB, WTF, etc. Sounds like a no-brainer, but how many languages are spoken in PSAFCA's markets?

    Can somebody create a Pentastar or even the old Trident logo with the 3 main logos at the points?

    I'm thinking some combo of Chrysler, Fiat, and Peugeot. Then you still get a neat little 3-letter acronym, which seems to be a popular naming scheme around the world. "CFP" or "FCP" both sound like a police acronym, and with both Fiat and Chrysler already part of the same company, maybe one of the two goes last. Probably "PFC" although my big question is, can Allpar members just refer to the whole conglomerate as "Mopar" still?! :D :D :D

    The dark, cynical side of me has this feeling that it will just simply be "PF".

    Actually, to be more precise, since the new entity will be registered in the Netherlands... "PF N.V."...or...worse yet..."PNV"

    Well, Peugeot did inherited some "Mopar" DNA when they acquired Chrysler-Europe(Barreiros/Simca/Rootes).

    Yep, more Mopar roots then Fiat. I believe one of the factories in France is still going, maybe more.

    I don’t care about the name, as much as I care for the “C”.

    But this is my guessing: “FCPA”

    For sure it will not be PSA (Peugeot SA). New company will be based in the Netherlands so it's impossible.

    PSA NV ... see, I did it ...

    As for signs and stationary, (a) a minor concern in the scheme of things, and (b) the overall company can be Peugeot NV while keeping FCA US, FCA Canada, and FCA Italy.

    But I was never a big fan of the FCA name anyway.

    Then it's PNV. ;) But still an unlikely choice.
