I really hope this car gets Chrysler back on track. Compared to the previous Sebring/200, this car actually has the right to call itself a Chrysler. It's no longer a cheap mid-size car, and the interior looks exactly like what you imagine a Chrysler interior to look like. To be honest, the Chrysler interiors from the early 2000s until Fiat took over were horrible and although the Fiat interiors look nice, this is more like what a Chrysler should have.

my 1999 chrysler Stratus Interior looks Chrysler-ish enough for me ^^ leather seats, wood and its wide like never ending. This was built until the early 2000s. ;)

The Sebring that succeeded your Stratus was plain awful in my opinion, and the generation after that... well...

Well, sadly this car did not become what Chrysler wanted it to be. Together with the Dodge Dart this will likely be discontinued after this year or the next, to make more room for Jeep production.

Yep, and in order to replace them, FCA plans to seek out an import partner to manufacturer replacement models.

Well the 200 and Dart are only sold in North America as far as I know, but I get your point. Everyone wants crossovers, and driving a normal ("low") car becomes more unpleasant by the day.

"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.

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.

Fiat at least earned a small but profitable customer base by selling cheap cars with good equipment features at base.

I personally loved the design of the Chrysler 200 and wanted to buy one, but it was too difficult for me to get one (i had to drive to the german harbor of Rostock). If i already knew the car was good i would have bought it anyway, but i dont drive 800 kilometers to Rostock, do a Test Drive and then notice its shit and drive back again...

Oh and the new Jeeps are all awful, people who drive them as rental cars in Germany always complain about them.
