These Christmas gift suggestions from Chrysler's Mopar division cover everything for the car enthusiast, the road-trip fan, as well as those related to daily travel, business, or fun. Pietro Gorlier, Mopar CEO, said that Mopar offers “hoodies to engine blocks and slush mats to camper trailers.”
He said that Mopar has over 280,000 proven quality-tested parts and accessories, many of which can be viewed on the Mopar eStore.
