Chrysler remains the most important brand in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ 5-year business plan as the company will double its lineup by the end of 2017. Earlier today we told you that the Chrysler 200 will replace the Dodge Avenger, while the Chrysler Town & Country kills the Dodge Grand Caravan. According to CEO Al Gardner, Chrysler will become the mainstream North American brand.
As a result, the company will introduce in 2016 the Chrysler 100 in the C segment, a full-sized crossover in 2017 and a new mid-sized crossover in 2018. The full-sized crossover will receive a plug-in hybrid version in 2018.
The Chrysler Town & Country will remain the only minivan offered by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and it will be redesigned in 2016. Chrysler will also offer a plug-in hybrid version of the Town & Country, which will debut in 2016.
The Chrysler 200 sedan will receive a mid-cycle freshening in 2017, while the redesigned Chrysler 300 sedan is planned for 2018. So, by 2018, Chrysler aims to sell 800,000 cars which is more than double the 350,000 it sold last year.
