    According to a recent piece by Michael Wayland and Chad Livengood in Automotive News, before starting a complex land deal near Jefferson North—at the far Eastern boundaries of Detroit proper—FCA tried to buy the GM Hamtramck plant. The Dodge Main plant was demolished to make room for GM’s...

    Two years ago, testing revealed that, under some conditions,  Ram 1500s and Jeep Grand Cherokees with VM diesel engines were shutting down their pollution controls. The programming hadn’t been approved by the EPA, resulting in an investigation and a temporary end to diesel Ram 1500 production...

    FCA US and FCA Canada have given out their last monthly sales reports; after this, only quarterly reports will be issued, starting in June. FCA is the last of the major North American automakers to switch to quarterly sales reports, which balance out month-to-month fluctuations. April 2019...

    Allpar’s sources have again confirmed that a straight-six is in the company’s future, but perhaps it’s just a little further off than we thought. The latest word is that the straight-six is going to Trenton and, likely, Dundee, with one high-volume line and one low-volume line. Chances are any...

    Fiat Chrysler’s first serious hybrid-electric was the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan, a major leap forward. It blasted onto the hybrid scene fully developed, after having been tested, refined, and retuned extensively, and gave journalist-reviewers high mileage, good acceleration, and...

    Fiat Chrysler’s first serious hybrid-electric was the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan; it blasted onto the hybrid scene fully developed, after having been extensively tested, refined, and retuned. Journalist-reviewers saw high mileage, good acceleration, surprising cornering, and smooth...

    As auto sales start their predicted decline, FCA US felt the effects—except at Ram, where the combination of a class-leading Ram 1500 and a competitive, inexpensive Ram 1500 Classic were attractive to buyers, bringing a 9% pickup-and-chassis-cab gain over last March. Ram vans also did very well...

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ global head of powertrain development started out at Chrysler Corporation 41 years ago, and will be retiring at the end of April. Bob Lee, regarded as a “good guy” by some Allpar insiders—approachable, friendly, and competent—helped lead the development of the Hemi...

    The possible effects of this have to be speculation, but the Commerce Department has just made a finding that allows the president to impose tariffs of up to 25% on cars imported unto the U.S., as long as he acts within a 90-day window. Though this may be posturing in hopes of reducing foreign...

    FCA’s American roughly 44,000 hourly employees will walk home with an average of $6,000 in profit-sharing this year.  The payments were part of the company's 2015 collective bargaining agreement, and are based on the adjusted earnings before interest and taxes in North America. This payment...

    This is the fifth year of record results for FCA, with an adjusted earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) of €7.3 billion, and a net profit of €3.6 billion. (One euro is currently equal to $1.13, so the net profit is  around $4 billion.) CEO Mike Manley said that the company will probably...

    The market is tougher than ever, but FCA US still managed to boost sales by 2% (around 3,200 sales). Part of that, though, was an increase in fleet sales, to 23% of the total. Fleet sales had been 28% of the total in January 2017, but dropped to 16% in January 2018. That’s not necessarily a bad...

    The kids we hire start out making more than double what I made when I started back in 98, but many are saddled with a mountain of debt because of school. Anything to help them whittle that debt down is a good thing.

    One of Tesla's selling points is supposed to be that you avoid the traditional car dealer experience. That goes for their online Certified Pre-owned buying system... where you just buy it online, and they deliver it... or don't. A new video posted Tuesday gained a quarter of a million hits in...

    Across the US automotive industry, car inventories are rising. Maybe it’s not surprising, then, that FCA will be idling several plants to cut production. Though there’s been no official announcement, union reps said that the Windsor minivan plant would take an extra two weeks of vacation. As...

    Will the Mack II plant, which made engines and parts, start to make Jeeps? Some time ago, Allpar pioneered this story , based on inside sources. Today, CNBC and the Detroit News have both suggested this may be the case; Automotive News also carried the story. Some distance away from major...

    FCA US reported a hefty increase of 17% over November 2017, selling 181,310 vehicles, (136,704 to retail customers). It was the highest November retail sales since 2001; 88% of sales went to retail, 12% to fleets. If not for a particularly good 2015, FCA US would have recorded its best November...
  19. Rumors and General Chrysler Discussion
    I'm wondering if FCA will show some spy shots of test mules for the 2020/2021 Dodge Challenger/Charger by the end of this year and/or possibly 2019. What do you think?

    Chrysler Among Least Searched Auto Brand In US Take this with a grain of salt. Apparently an insurance company called Veygo (which I have never heard of) did a study as to which brands are Googled the most by country. The results I will share are specifically for the United States. Note...
