    About Chrysler

    An American icon, Chrysler has been at the forefront of the automotive industry for over eighty years. Founded by Walter P. Chrysler, the company was to be located in Detroit, Michigan and not only manufacture automobiles, but also to make advancements within the industry using innovative engineering ideals. Just a few years after the company was started, Chrysler also purchased Dodge and developed both the DeSoto and Plymouth divisions, respectively. This enabled Chrysler to begin concentrating on improving the fleet of vehicles under the banner while keeping an eye towards the future. The first example of this was the Airflow, an aerodynamically designed car that featured an inline-8 cylinder engine mounted in the front. Many experts label the Airflow as the first car to display aerodynamic sensibilities given its smooth lines and bold grille.

    Throughout the years, Chrysler has always found ways to keep drivers interested. One of the brand's most impressive traits has been its versatility. Chrysler models and models' parts can be appreciated for their luxury, sportiness, dependability, comfort, or all of the above. Models such as the New Yorker, LeBaron, Newport, and Imperial have played a role in helping stabilize the brand during different eras. There are also models that stand out on a more contemporary basis, including the Crossfire, widely recognized for its sleek and aggressive persona directed towards the sports-car demographic. The Pacifica settled in nicely, providing a stylish yet cozy package in the world of crossover SUVs. And of course, the Sebring remains one of Chrysler’s most valuable properties given its luxurious design and solid sales numbers. Chrysler has consistently produced vehicles that end up at the front of their class, regardless of segment.

    The rebirth of the 300 along with the debut of the PT Cruiser saw Chrysler turn a corner. The Chrysler 300 has become one of the most sought-after luxury cars on the market, easily keeping up with foreign marques that are used to leading the class. The PT Cruiser, a retro-styled 5-door wagon, displays a boxy shape rounded out by an aerodynamic flavor, not unlike the Airflow so many years before. With the fallout of the auto industry over the last year, there have been some changes within the company but the promise for a full recovery has held strong. In the face of what can sometimes be an uncertain automotive climate, Chrysler has always managed to not only endure, but come out of it stronger than ever.

    Any Chrysler model has the uncanny ability to both fit in and stand out at the same time, and that is because of the company's unique standards. Designed for performance and pleasure, Chrysler has also been a force to be reckoned with when it comes to unbridled style. Judging by the sleekness of some of their autos and parts, it is easy to see why most drivers feel as if their version was created especially for them. In the past, the perks of a luxury automobile normally didn't coincide with the dependable and economical features Chrysler has to offer, which is precisely how the company rose to prominence.

    Chrysler Makes a $212M Profit
    Chrysler Makes a $212M Profit

    Chrysler Group LLC reached a $212 million profit in the third quarter, and this can't even be compared to the $84 million net loss the company faced during the same July-to-September period last year. The Chrysler's revenue rose 19% (to app. $13.1 billion), which was driven by demand for the new and refreshed vehicles, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chrysler 300, and Dodge Journey, the company introduced for the 2011 and 2012 model years. This second quarterly profit means that Chrysler is recovering after the bankruptcy, and is heading to the first annual net profit since 2005.

    The global sales of the Fiat-controlled Chrysler reached 496,000 for the 3rd quarter, which is up 24% from a year earlier. The boost allowed the company to adjust the expected net income for 2011 to $600 million, up from the previously estimated $200-500 million. Chrysler also expects to generate $1.2 billion in cash flow in 2011, up from prior guidance of $1 billion. These results will also improve overall results of Fiat, which would have reported a loss without Chrysler. Analysts, however, are not that impressed by the Chrysler's profit, and are actually alarmed by debt and cash consumption of both Fiat and Chrysler. The total debt of the Italian automaker jumped to $8.2 billion at the end of September 2011 from $3.4 billion reported in June 2011. According to Fiat, the increase of debt was caused by seasonal factors and payments to Canada and the US Treasury.

    Sergio Marchionne announced that positive financial results and increased sales achieved by Chrysler go in line with the plan that was laid out in November 2009. Chief Executive also stated that the company continues to be focused on both financial performance and production of quality cars and trucks.

    Chrysler SRT Lineup: More Power, Less Fuel
    Chrysler SRT Lineup: More Power, Less Fuel

    Since the gasoline price reached the mark nearly $4-per-gallon, Chrysler added a fuel-efficient Cylinder Deactivation System to the three SRT performance vehicles. 2012 models of Chrysler 300 SRT8, Dodge Charger SRT8 and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 will be equipped with engines producing more power, though burning less fuel on the highway than their predecessors. When driving on the highway, in certain conditions, the system shuts off four cylinders on the 470-hp, 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engine.

    The CEO of the SRT brand said that nowadays there is one critical question for the Chrysler brand, it is how to sell vehicles with SRT engines. The cylinder deactivation technology was the first answer to this question, it allows to increase fuel economy 13 percent on Grand Cherokee and up to 25 percent on the 300 and Charger from the 2010 versions with a 425-hp, 6.1-liter Hemi V-8.

    The prices for the following vehicles are: Charger SRT8, $46,620; 300 SRT8, $47,995; Grand Cherokee SRT8, $55,295; and Challenger SRT8, $44,820. The SRT vehicles will be available at the dealership in the third quarter.

    Chrysler's officials confirmed that the company successfully repaid the loans from U.S. and Canadian governments. In general the automaker has repaid somewhat around $7 billion of loans, fees and interests. This also includes company's alternative loan sources with significantly lower rates in comparison with U.S. Treasury Department. At the present moment there is a visible positive dynamics in the company's development due to several factors like recovering economy and new ownership by Fiat. With the situation like this Chrysler expects more interest from the consumers, which will enhance the automaker's positions on the North American market.

    President Obama did not leave this event without attention later that day:
    "Chrysler's repayment of its outstanding loans to the U.S. Treasury and American taxpayers marks a significant milestone for the turnaround of Chrysler and the countless communities and families who rely on the American auto industry,"
