New for 2018:Chrysler

Christian Wardlaw | Sep 06, 2017
Following the cancellation of the 200 midsize sedan and without any new models on the horizon, the future of the Chrysler brand appears uncertain. Only the aged 300 full-size sedan and the recently introduced Pacifica minivan remain, neither competing in hot segments. Unless a crossover SUV arrives for 2019, don’t expect Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to continue branding products “Chrysler.”
