That's the current excuse. But it's been several years of FCA and promises and promises of new products. Instead most are delayed or cancelled and a few make it out at a snail's pace. Past excuses were everything had to wait on the Giorgio platform because it was going to be wonderful. Still waiting on those products. Still waiting on the CUVs that were said to be coming for Chrysler the past several years. Now everything will be delayed until the merger is finalized.What exactly are you expecting with the current environment - COVID pandemic and a pending merger?
None of those are in showrooms, except maybe Durango refresh which was way overdue. They've been promised for years.so.... we just gonna ignore the Durangos New Interior, heavily refreshed Compass, and New Grand Cherokee coming out soon?
Chrysler doesn't get any new product unless its a merger or buy out, they have to be sold or merged every 10 years to get some new product.The upcoming merger, that is almost a reality now, is IMHO THE main reason for all the product drought. When I say that, I'm not just talking this merger, I'm talking about any merger that could've been pulled off with anybody. I personally believe that Sergio felt that once the company was on good footing, a merger partner would come courting. That didn't happen right away, which called for a new plan, not the plan that's been called 5 year or whatever, I'm talking about a new plan for a move forward with or without a partner. I also believe that his perfect partner would've been GM, and for the life of me, I don't know why he would think that. It woulve been like Studebaker and Packard merging.
I remember 1980, that was the worst. I also remember 1974 with the death of the E-body Challenger and Barracuda. the Hi-Po V8s with a four speed to back them up, and the only thing new was seat belt interlocks. BTW, GM has brought that last item back for 2021. The car car will start but won't go into gear unless you buckle up.Worst car guy year ever. :/
