Chrysler, Fiat to share spotlight in Frankfurt

Chrysler, Fiat to share spotlight in Frankfurt

Posted Wednesday, Sep 9, 2009, 1:41 pm in Employee News

Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat S.p.A. will make their first high-profile joint appearance next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but the real collaboration on new vehicles is still 18 months to two years away, according to analysts familiar with the companies’ product strategies, the Detroit Free Press reported.

While many industry observers have been anticipating the new Chrysler-Fiat product plan, that lineup is still under review by Chrysler’s board of directors, including Chrysler and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, the paper said. Details are expected later this year, the Free Press noted.

Last week, Chrysler said it would show in Frankfurt a new 2010 version of its Dodge Caliber hatchback that will be powered by a 2.2-liter diesel engine supplied by Mercedes-Benz and a freshly designed interior, the story said. While the Caliber diesel is targeted at European consumers, the car and engine were in the works well before Fiat proposed a partnership with Chrysler, which was completed in June after Chrysler’s 41-day journey through bankruptcy, the story said.
