    That would sound like a rock'n'roll band. ;)

    Knowing how long it takes the company to update corporate signage throughout their facilities - I agree with PFCA. Then they can get each facility's maintenance department to go around with magic markers and add a P to the front of everything.

    That name just won't work. If you can imagine someone with a heavy New York or Boston accent pronounce the acronym, it sounds like a horrible slur against a particular minority group.

    I don't need to spell it out for ya...

    As a Star Trek fan, "FCA" always translated to "Ferengi Commerce Authority" for me.

    Why change the names, leave everything the way they are in their respective countries. When the vehicles are identified they are done by the brand name not the conglomerate name. It's not FCA Charger, but Dodge Charger or Maserati Ghibli or ??

    The new combined company will need a name. Personally, I think if they are going to do it, they should not have any of the original company names in there, and only partly because I think that because Chrysler will be dead last in the order; likewise, I think that the FCA signs should go. Yes, money, I know, but FCA was never a good name for a holding company; it's like naming GM “Chevrolet Cadillac Automobiles” (actually, I guess it would be “Buick Cadillac,” in order of appearance in the merged company).

    It's a 50/50 merger, and they're being very careful to emphasize that. Nobody's name should be first. New company, new name. Call the USA branch either Nuco US or Chrysler. Call the Italian branch either Nuco Italy or Fiat. Call the French brand either Nuco France or Peugeot... (Nuco standing in for a nu company name).

    Since everything in a capitalistic society is all about profits, Chrysler's name should be first.

    Very likely they will use a new name.
    Likely they will put something about "mobility", since next decades business will shift more towards "mobility solutions" than "selling vehicles".

    When PSA and Fiat in 1978 made their joint venture for light commercial vehicles they named it SEVEL (in italian Società Europea Veicoli Leggeri and in french Société Européenne de Véhicules Légers). SEVEL Nord was in France for medium size van, operative till few years ago, while SEVEL Sud is still operative and the one that is manufacturing Fiat Ducato, Citroen Jumper and Peugeot Boxer (+ body parts for RAM Promaster).

    Someone called it “the merger of losers.” —although I doubt it has the same ring in French and Italian.

    Too soon...? :D

    Aren't you (and FCA / PSA) fudging this one just a little?

    Yes...they're emphasizing 50 / 50 merger...BUT...the facts remain that PSA will have one additional seat on the Board, and the Peugeot family will be allowed to purchase more shares, but EXOR will not.
