So funny - taking what should be a niche brand (Jeep) and making it the volume brand and taking what were volume brands (Dodge and Chrysler) and making them niche at best shows nothing other than a complete misunderstanding of the markets and "goodwill" of nameplates. What you end up with is a reduced image of all three brands:Stellantis has the advantage of multiple brands selling around the world via, often and soon: oftener, multibrand dealerships and mulibrand spares and service and logistics 'backend'.
Accordingly, no brand need be anything close to the respective commoditized 'full line up'.
Accordingly: dodge, now a somewhat decommoditized brand, will by 2025or later still have no more than 3 or 4 nameplates (with many variants), likewise with Alfa (3 or 4 globally plus 1 or 2 eurocentric small fwd models), maserati will have 4 or 5 at most.
Chrysler will have just 1or 2.
Scale economies via psa merger synergies and JEEP volumes(globally not just usa) andor sweating old amortized plants, powertrains, platitectures will ensure at a minimum no significant financial losses.
1) People can't get anything in the Chrysler lineup other than a very old car or one minivan sold as four different models. Even Plymouth had a wider lineup when it was killed.Chrysler's brand image is dying.
2) The "boy racer" image Dodge is forced to portray kills any interest from someone looking for economy or safety in a vehicle.
3) People are forced to take the compromises that come with a Jeep including lower fuel economy and, sadly, often quality issues, that make many first time Jeep purchasers leave Jeep the next time they are in a market for a new vehicle.
So now we've taken three brands and weakened the image of each, for short term financial fluffing for a merger.
A lot of time and energy was spent forcing square pegs into round holes that could have been better spent improving product.
