Chrysler 100 still coming?

by David Zatz on

The Chrysler 100 series (100, 100S, 100C) was announced in 2014, as part of the long-term FCA plan. The 100 will reportedly cost less to build than the Dodge Dart,  be much lighter (allowing better mileage and smaller engines), and sacrifice the Dart’s sophisticated interior for something simpler, but still attractive and easy to use.

It’s worth comparing the Jeep Cherokee and Renegade to get the idea: the Cherokee is not that much larger than the Renegade, but it’s much more plush and nicely appointed.

The Chrysler 100 is likely to have the same engines as the current Dart, possibly with a 2-liter turbo coming in the future for the 100S.

The 100, almost certainly to be made in Toluca, Mexico, alongside the Compass replacement, will probably be more upscale in look,  feel, and power than the Fiat Tipo. The company has not released any official information about the 100 other than its name and class.
