Dodge Caliber replacement still in the works

Dodge Caliber replacement still in the works

2011 Lancia Ypsilon

If you were holding out hope for an entry-level Chrysler, you'd better keep dreaming as a new report is indicating the company has axed two Fiat-based models.

Details are limited, but Chrysler President Olivier Francois told Car and Driver the company has decided against launching a rebadged version of the Lancia Ypsilon. According to Francois, the car would be too similar to the Fiat 500 so offering it didn't make sense.

Additionally, an entry-level sedan - based on the the Alfa Romeo Giulietta - was in the works but it now appears this vehicle will be exclusive to Dodge.

Lancia had a bad reputation in the UK after suffering from engines falling out. Apparently they were stored in a disused limestone quarry and the 'Daily Mail" newspaper ran an editorial showing cars parked up to their rockers in water. Alfa also suffered from the rust cancer too.
