Happy Sunday! Welcome to Holy Shift, where we highlight big innovations in the auto and racing industries each week—whether they be necessary or simply for comfort.
The Chrysler 200's back seat isn’t exactly easy to get in and out of. Part of that is because it was made by Chrysler, which has a track record of questionable decisions. But the real reason is because the entry point was copied by “dummies” from the Hyundai Sonata (???), according to Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio…
Chrysler’s latest revision on their minivan (no longer called the Town & Country; it’s now the Chrylser Pacifica, for some reason) is a pretty surprising rolling room of tech–a hybrid system, 360° cameras, a vacuum cleaner–and it includes a modern tool to solve one of the family roadtrip’s most traditional annoyances.
Chrysler invented the mainstream minivan, but Honda and Toyota make much better ones. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid offers 80 MPGe with 30 miles of all-electric range. That’s better by far than anything Toyota or Honda can do. How did Chrysler beat them?
Presenting the all-new 2017 Chrysler Town & Country — which is actually now officially the Pacifica — the last beacon of hope in the age where traditional minivans fall to the rush of consumers flocking to “crossovers.” It’s very, uh, modern, and now with a hybrid option!
Mitsuoka is the world’s premier maker of Nissan-based, sub-scale vintage Jaguar-ish cars. FCA (you know, Fiat-Chrysler) is a huge carmaker that’s going through a bit of a rough patch, including a failed attempt to convince GM that a merger would be a blast. Is an FCA/Mitsuoka partnership just what everyone needs?
The Chrysler 200 is Chrysler’s first decent mid-sized car in way too long, but it’s up against stiff competition. What do you need to know before you buy a Chrysler 200? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
Internet showoffs make it seem like you need a dedicated track car to have fun on open lapping days. They’re dead wrong—as this high schooler showed us by bringing his family’s Chrysler 200 to a track day at Mid-Ohio. And he had an absolute blast.
Picture this: You’re buying a new car from a Chrysler dealer, and they say you can get another $200 available from the factory on your purchase. Then they ask you to sign a document which contains a binding arbitration clause.
Earlier today, we got an email from a woman who found this steering wheel placed at her front door. The woman signed the email “Kelly Ladymopar,” so I’m guessing a Chrysler steering wheel isn’t totally unwelcome. Still, she’d like to know exactly what Chrysler it’s from, and I’d like to know what such a gift may mean.
Well, our cyberpunk dystopian future is upon us because Chrysler just recalled 1.4 million cars because of their vulnerability to hackers.
As more and more cars become mobile, internet-connected appliances, they become more likely targets for remote hacking. Chrysler is hopefully realizing the seriousness of this, as a new Jeep Cherokee has been remotely hacked and pretty severely compromised, according to a story in Wired. But don’t panic just yet.
You know that zit you sometimes get in your middle back that you generally forget about unless the the damn thing explodes and turns red and starts to ooze puss? That zit is former Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli and he’s gushing greasy efluvia in this column for LinkedIn misleadingly titled “What I Learned Leading a…
Have you been living in L.A. all this time without being familiar with the city’s flag? Jay Leno has, but that changed once this special parade car hit his garage. It’s been serving the city and the nation since 1952.
A worker was crushed to death in the wastewater treatment section of Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly plant in Detroit, according to local CBS affiliate WWJ. A company spokesperson confirmed the incident, though specific details of the incident are as of yet unclear.
Petrolicious recently sat down with Shaheen Armin, a young man who quit his job designing new cars in the U.S. in order to create a documentary about a nearly unknown classic car. The Paykan, or “Arrow” in Persian was made in Iran since the ’60s, becoming known as “the national car of Iran” mostly because it was made…
This is The Morning Shift, our one-stop daily roundup of all the auto news that’s actually important — all in one place every weekday morning. Or, you could spend all day waiting for other sites to parse it out to you one story at a time. Isn’t your time more important?
Chrysler is a company now known for making dowdy family cars, pickup trucks, and the occasional Hellcat. But long before the modern-day era of staid sedans and Italian ownership, there was the Chrysler Space Division. And the Chrysler Space Division made rockets.
