Founded in 1925, Chrysler has always been at the forefront of style and design. They were the first American auto manufacturer to design with aerodynamics in mind. They’re responsible for the creation of the V8 Hemi engine, and have spent a fair amount of time as the number two automaker (behind Chevy) through the 40s and 50s.
Chrysler has never been afraid of innovation, being the first to introduce unibody construction and being responsible for introducing the K-car. Innovation and creativity comes at a cost, and some of Chrysler’s designs and business decisions have taken their toll on the company.
In recent years Chrysler has had something of a resurgence. After merging with Daimler-Benz (to become Daimler-Chrysler), the auto maker began to produce the Chrysler 300, stepping forward into the world of reliable, affordable luxury sedans bolstered by the Mercedes Benz platform.
After declaring bankruptcy and reorganizing their line, Chrysler now offers a limited line-up of vehicles. Leading the way is the Chrysler Town and Country and the 300 sedan. The Town and Country has been leading the charge of mini-vans since its inception. Making strides in the sedan category, Chrysler offers a couple of options for potential buyers. Going forward, Chrysler appears to be focusing on a limited line of vehicles with high style, class, and reliability. The future looks bright.
