Best and worst of FCA ’16

by David Zatz on

What were the best and worst things FCA US did in 2016? We asked, and a couple of hundred people told us what they thought.

Best things FCA US did in 2016

Staying alive shouldn’t really be top of the chart, but in all the talk of mergers, sales, finances, and such, there it was, with over a quarter of respondents saying that was the best thing the company did. The Pacifica Hybrid and Challenger T/A + Charger Daytona came in at #2 and #3 — an order that really could have changed quite easily in time. Winning the NHRA Manufacturer’s Cup came in dead last and far from the rest.

Bad news is usually more popular than good news, and in this case there was more consensus, too. Ending the Dart and 200 came in at #1, with 40% of the respondents agreeing. Closing the Chrysler Museum came next.
