nearly four percent of vehicle sales in the country. In the past three
years alone, the U.S. crossover segment has grown on average nearly 14
percent per year.

Dodge Brand

With a U.S. market share of 6.4 percent, Dodge is Chrysler LLC's best-
selling brand and the fifth largest nameplate in the U.S. automotive
market. In 2006, Dodge sold more than 1.3 million vehicles in the global
market. In the highly competitive truck market, Dodge has a 15 percent
market share. Recently, Dodge introduced the all-new 2008 Dodge Grand
Caravan with 35 new or improved features including the newest innovation,
the Swivel 'n Go(TM) seating system. In 2007, the Dodge Avenger and Nitro
entered key volume segments outside North America, joining the Dodge
Caliber, which launched in those markets in 2006. The all-new 2009 Dodge
Journey will debut in 2008 calendar year, and will be available outside
North America in both left- and right-hand drive in mid-2008. Also in 2008,
Dodge will introduce its modern muscle car, the all-new Dodge Challenger.
