One week before Chrysler's planned media unveil of Fiat's future plans for Chrysler, The Wall Street Journal's reporting nine current vehicles will be axed from the lineup and one Chrysler plus three Alfa Romeos will be added. Full list below.
Basically, Chrysler gets to be the brand of — umm — a minivan, a large sedan and a little cinquecento. Dodge gets gutted and apparently becomes the retro brand. Ram pickup trucks are — umm — maybe their own brand? Jeep gets back to basics (yay!) and Alfa Romeo randomly shows up, adding a small car, a smaller car, a mid-size and the 8c competizione.
So basically, Fiat's grooming Alfa Romeo to replace Chrysler. Full details below:
* Town and Country
* 300: Redesign in 2011
* Fiat 500: 2011
* Charger: Redesign in 2011
* Ram trucks (separate brand?)
* Grand Cherokee: Redesign in 2010
* Milano (replacing 147)
* New Mid-Size Sedan
* 8C Competizione
