- Product innovations and leadership are showcased in new corporate print,

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As a new chapter
begins in its 82 year history, The New Chrysler is launching a national
corporate advertising campaign Aug. 6 with the theme, "The New Chrysler:
Get Ready for the Next Hundred Years." The advertising was announced today
at a press conference signifying the first day of the new Company, under
the majority ownership of New York-based Cerberus Capital Management.
The campaign consists of print, internet and radio ads that introduce
The New Chrysler company name to the public and reflect back on the
Company's product, innovation and technology leadership of the past as well
as what can be expected in the future - the next hundred years. The
Pentastar logo -- which adorns the Company headquarters and was the
corporate symbol of the Company for more than 40 years -- has returned as
part of The New Chrysler company logo.
The campaign's overall message conveys the pride, passion and
commitment The New Chrysler has for building great vehicles, and creates
excitement for what the future holds - new industry-leading cars and trucks
with cutting-edge technology, high quality and increased fuel economy.
"We have a bright future with the best showroom line-up ever including
the all-new Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans that
will soon be arriving at dealerships, " said Steven Landry, Executive Vice
President - North America Sales and Marketing, Service and Parts. "This is
an incredibly important time for The New Chrysler and we want to make sure
that people know the product milestones and innovations that have made this
company what it is today, and where we are going in the future."
The New Chrysler corporate advertising campaign is scheduled to run in
the United States through the end of August. Elements of the campaign will
be used in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
