Default 2010 Chrysler 300 and 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee shown in viability plan


Quote:
Seen on page 133 and 137 of Chrysler’s Restructuring Plan for Long-Term Viability Plan submitted to the U.S. Treasury earlier today, are sketches of the next-generation Chrysler 300 and Jeep Gran Cherokee.

In it’s plan Chrysler says that “revenue in the in the near term will get a boost with the debut of a redesigned
Jeep Grand Cherokee.” It said that the 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be “built in the United States and
will feature improved fuel economy and a best-in-class interior.” Fuel-economy of the next-generation Grand Cherokee will be improved by 19 percent.

As for the 2010 Chrysler 300, Chrysler LLC says the next-generation model will feature a “stylish new exterior and interior designs, improved fuel efficiency and unprecedented uconnect connectivity.” Powertrain options will include an all-new fuel-efficient 6-cylinder engine along with a V8 HEMI. The HEMI will feature Chrysler’s Multiple Displacement System (MDS) that automatically deactivates engine cylinders for enhanced fuel economy which will be improved by 22 percent.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Default Production 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe unveiled in GM’s viability plan




Quote:
Originally, the 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe was scheduled to make its production debut at the 2008 LA Auto Show. However, General Motors decided to push back the launch and rumor had it that the production CTS Coupe will show face at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show - but the much anticipated Caddy was a no show in Detroit as well.


Well, our friend Donny at Fast Lane Daily was doing some hardcore reading of General Motors Viability Plan checking out all the detailed graphs and statistics when he came across a photo of the production 2010 Cadillac CTS Coupe.
In its viability plan that was submitted to the U.S. Treasury earlier today, GM said that the Cadillac CTS Coupe will start production in 2010 with sales to begin later that summer. Power will come from the same 3.6L V6 options found under the hood of the CTS sedan.

Good. Those are all good looking and potentially successful models.

I'd also like to see a graphical representation of a dead PT Cruiser, Dorango, Compass, Patriot, Caliber, etc. Preferably with them all on fire.

The updated 300 looks very nice and it's interior looks great. The new Jeep looks pretty good too. The only issue I have is that these are obviously just "updated" models and not entirely new models... so are they updated enough to keep them relevant now that Ford has the new large Taurus and GM has a couple of large cars??

Also I am happy to see that Caddy is actually going to introduce the CTS coupe.

Having been in a 300 and 300C before, no matter what it looks like in an artist's rendering, it will turn out to be rubbish due to poor build quality and very cheap materials. Unless all of that is going to magically change now.

plus 10 million....

what about that 200C or whatever they were harping about at the Detroit Autoshow? Guess it was just a concept... If they were slick, it would have been in that viability plan of theirs..

Default Alfa Romeo Milano, Giulia, Crossover details revealed in Chrysler’s viability plan



Quote:
As we keep digging through Chrysler’s Restructuring Plan for Long-Term Viability Plan submitted to the U.S. Treasury yesterday, we keep finding some interesting new product information. On page 113 of the viability plan, Chrysler displays a graph on how it will improve fuel-economy of its lineup by sharing powertrain and products with Fiat. There on the chart sit three, future Alfa Romeo models.

One of the three models will be a sedan called the Milano. The Milano will replace the 147 entry-premium car and is due in Europe around 2010. The second model, known as the Giulia, will replace the 159 medium-premium sedan and will arrive in Europe in late 2011.

Also detailed in the chart are plans for an Alfa Romeo CUV (or crossover).

Chrysler said that Fiat will share its small platforms, small gasoline and diesel engines and light duty dual-clutch transmissions, eliminating Chrysler’s need to develop these components.

In return Chrysler will hand over its 4-cylinder World Gas Engine and Phoenix V6 powertrains that will make it into the future Fiat product line extension.

Default Chrysler reveals names of next Alfa Romeo cars

Quote:
Surprisingly, the news did not come from Alfa or its parent Fiat Group. Instead, Chrysler, Fiat's new alliance partner, revealed the names in its submission to the U.S. Treasury for government bailout moneyChrysler included two Alfa cars that it could build in the U.S. when it unveiled its latest restructuring plan for long-term viability on Tuesday.

The first Alfa model will be called Milano. The Milano will replace the 147 entry-premium car. It is due in Europe in spring 2010 and code-named project 940.

Milano is the Italian name for Milan, the city where Alfa was established in 1910. The name was used in the 1980s for the U.S. version of the European Alfa 75 medium-premium model.


The second model will be called Giulia. It is due in Europe in late 2011 and is code-named project 953.
The Giulia will replace the 159 medium-premium sedan and station wagon models. Giulia is Italian for the women's first name Julie.

Alfa used the name for a range of successful sedans and coupes produced in the 1960s.

In January, Fiat said it planned to take a 35 percent stake in Chrysler. Fiat will pay no cash for the stake but will provide Chrysler with platforms and low-emission engines. Fiat could eventually pay between $25 million and $200 million to raise the stake to 55 percent.
Fiat will use its partnership with Chrysler to gain access to Chrysler's production and dealer network for Fiat and Alfa cars.

So, it took Chrysler having to crawl to Washington and groveling at Congress' feet to actually put some effort into their cars? Wow..

Why doesn't the 300 have the "new" logo they have been pushing for over a year now...

These images...especially those of the 300 are off. If my sources are proven to be correct. They didn't even put side mirrors on the 300. The interior on the 300 is also off, by quite a bit.

Also the new V6 mentioned is the Pheonix V6. The new Pheonix will be a very special motor, much like that of the 3.6 GM unit.

The Grand Cherokee is fairly accurate (save a more aggressive lower fascia on the acutal production model), as well as the interior image of it. There is a diesel version of both cars waiting in the "wings"...but why no mention was made, concerns me a little. Fiat is suppose to give up its diesel engine going into its new crossover. However the details are still being worked out, because things are still being discussed about the 300 platform may or may not being used for its Alfa 169 pictured below :

Damn that is one HOT sedan!

Chrysler teaming up with Fiat might sound damn strange, but if they can bring over some of those gorgeous Alfas and small Fiats to the US that would be pretty cool... I am especially curious how they would handle branding them though. I assume they would still be branded as Fiats and Alfas, but would Chrysler get a version of those cars, or simply sell them in their dealerships.

It's a mix of both. Some vehicles will be strictly Alfa/Fiat, Chrysler will get versions of some (NOT ALL ) of the vehicles. In exchange Alfa/Fiat will get the same treatment. As of right now its only an exchange for a small car for the next LX Platform.

However this is one web that could get intertangled a bit more in depth. Think how it would be if GM decided to use Buick/Pontiac to sell Opels and then GM decides to bring Opel over here as well. Thats how it could turn out, and frankly thats not a good thing if it goes down that road.

Chrysler and Fiat need to tread lightly. Keep it simple, keep it organized and things could prosper well.
