Fiat-based models to key Chrysler’s comeback?

I get the feeling that we won’t recognize the Chrysler brand cars in a few years. That’s a good thing, my friends, and maybe, just maybe, these Fiat-based models will be the engine that brings this company back in the black! With that being said, don’t go too far with the 300, as that is the Chrysler car that actually spurs opinions and emotion. I hear the possible 200C is gorgeous.

With that being said, Sergio has hinted that these new Chrysler rides could hit the ground in Q4 2011.

From AutoGuide.com:

Chrysler Group could bring several Fiat-based compact vehicles to the United States sooner than expected, CEO Sergio Marchionne said on a conference call today.

The vehicles could be on the market as early as the fourth quarter of 2011, based on design work that already has been completed, Marchionne said.

“We’ve run extensive clinics on the first vehicles. We’re 98 percent there on styling,” he said. “My expectation today is we’ll be able to get this car into the market Q4 2011. We continue to work pretty aggressively on timing.”
