Chrysler Working on Introducing Several New Models Soon
We now have good news for you die-hard Chrysler fans: New CEO Sergio Marchionne announced that Chysler has hired 600 additional engineers to work on design and quality after significant downsizing affected build quality.
Special focus will be made on interior quality control, which the CEO said had been less than stellar in recent years.
At the Detroit Auto Show, a Chrysler Delta was shown, a rebadged model that is sold in Europe by Fiat subsidiary Lancia. A revamp of Chrysler's entire model lineup will eventually mean that Lancia and Chrysler models will differ only by the nameplate.
Americans may see several new models in coming years as a result of the merger. Fiat is expected to bring over the popular 500 compact car, and models from Alfa Romeo may also be coming Stateside.
