2014-2017 Chrysler 200 Series II [CUSW]
Mark0 RB (1627)
Yeah. Just like you said Chrysler is sinking ship for many years.
But this is no way for them to get going again.

But again customers who are buying the cars are the key. And just like I said before 70% of them have no idea about cars, they just buying them because A) They heard that make is good or B) Someone on internet i am fan of is driving that car, so I must drive it too.

Here is the quote from Tucker: The Man and His Dream movie. "And one day, we're gonna find ourselves at the bottom of the heap, instead of king of the hill, having no idea how we got there; buying our radios and our cars from our former enemies!" This is Tucker speech to the jury back in 50's when he was in the court, and the jury laughed at that comment, and look what car is best seller in US.
If the US let smaller manufacturers come with new ideas, instead of focusing on 'Big Three' they will still be on the top of vehicle industry.

Mark0 wrote "It was discontinued due to lack of profitability and as the result of FCA’s strategy of exclusively manufacturing trucks in North America."

FCA have some very brigh leadership. Mixing US and Italian isn't good thing. Cadillac Allante and Chrysler TC for example.
Damn it, Fiat is most common car in Serbia, they have factory here, but people don't like them and are only buying them for low prices.

All of Chrysler has been a sinking ship or many many years. I don't think any existing American car manufacturer has been close to bankruptcy as many times as Chrysler.
In the 70s, they failed to adapt to the economic situation, and kept building big cars when fuel prices were very high. They partnered with Mitsubishi -> failed.
In the 80s, they were saved by a cheap and uninspiring compact car (the K-Car) and bought AMC, which wasn't doing well at all, just so they could have Jeep.
In the late 90s, they partnered with Mercedes -> didn't work. At the end of the 2000s, they hit rock bottom and merged with Fiat (which struggles to compete with big corporations like Renault-Nissan, Volkswagen, GM).

Now FCA's boss has greatly improved Chryslers when you compare them to the 2000s models, but they aren't competitive at all if you look beyond price (and horsepower in case of Dodge). Dodge and Jeep crossovers are doing very well (funny, because they aren't getting very many facelifts), as the world is crazy about crossovers right now. Chrysler has two cars left (one is outdated, the other in a category that nobody wants anymore). Fiat tries to live off of the 500, which is losing popularity, Lancia is pretty much dead, Alfa Romeo's grand revival isn't exactly going as planned (although the Stelvio does well of course), Maserati has an outdated sports car, some very expensive sedans and a crossover.

FCA's boss has also been desperately looking for another corporation to buy all of FCA, which doesn't look very good, while he is trying to make all of his brands to go 100% crossover. Good job!

*Both the Chrysler TC and Cadillac Allanté were bad ideas because they were built in Italy and imported to the US, which made them ridiculously expensive. I think the Allanté could have done reasonably well if it was built in the US instead.

Hmm, I personally like the Juke more. I know the Juke is quite a controversial car, but I think the front looks somewhat clean. The Kona's design has been received quite well, but I personally feel like the front is overdesigned.

Nothing says "business is booming" like copying the grille of a Russian car... www.webcarstory.com/voiture.php?id=30229

P.S. I originally meant this as a joke, but after some research, the oldest Lada concept I could find with this grille was from 2012, whereas the oldest Mitsubishi concept with the same detail was from 2013.

Nice looking vehicle, but it's engine will likely make this vehicle less popular than it's predecessor...and it's guaranteed to be much more boring to drive.

It's interesting to see how this car does, as I've read a couple of very different opinions about it.

Some people say it will perform worse than the Juke, because of the weak engine and the general lack of style.
Other people say it will perform better, because the looks aren't so polarizing, and it has a lot more cargo capacity (which is one of the main weak points of the Juke).

I think that 70% of car buyers doesn't know anything about cars, let alone if it's better or faster than other version. Buying new car is like buying anything new, it's popular.
