Re: FCA product strategy briefing Tuesday - Free Press

Fiat Chrysler expects all but Dodge to grow in North America - Detroit Free Press
May 6, 2014
By Alisa Priddle


...Much of the growth will continue to occur in North America, where the automaker forecasts its sales will grow 48% to 3.1 million in 2018 compared from 2.1 million in 2013, said CEO Sergio Marchionne.

( BUT )

All brands but Dodge should expand in the U.S., Canada and Mexico over the next five years...

What Fiat Chrysler needs to do to fulfill those promises - Detroit Free Press
May 6, 2014
by Mark Phelan


Fiat Chrysler will have its hands full creating vehicles that deliver on the promises made in its five-year plan.

Here’s some of what I’ll be watching for:
Engines. Perhaps the least sexy, but the most important challenge...
Jeep...
Chrysler. Today’s admission that Chrysler’s not a luxury brand was overdue and opens lots of space for the brand to grow...
Dodge...
Fiat...
Alfa Romeo. Surprise me...
Maserati. Look up, not down, and be ambitious. The 2014 Ghibli sedan’s base price of $66,900 should be the absolute floor for Maserati, so Alfa Romeo can establish itself. On the other hand, Maserati’s worldwide sales goal of 75,000 by 2018 may be modest based on the last five years. Maserati should have every BMW, Mercedes and Porsche sedan and SUV priced over $80,000 in its sights.

More... (obviously)

of course, I kept the full paragraph for Maserati because of how it relates to

AutoExtremist
On The Table: Sergio's Plan
(& other stuff)

...Editor-in-Chief's Note:
The Investor community doesn't think much of The Great Sergio's new five-year plan, apparently. As reported by David Shepardson in The Detroit News this morning (Wednesday, May 7), "Investors didn’t like Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV’s aggressive five-year plan to spend more than $65 billion dollars on product development in a bid to ramp up sales over the next five years, sending shares down by 8.6 percent.

In trading in Europe, shares of Fiat fell to 7.74 euros ($10.78) down 0.73 euros ($1.02) a share." Marchionne of course dismissed all negativity because he insists that he delivered on the 2009 plan - while glossing over and conveniently forgetting the parts that he didn't deliver on, but hey, in Sergio's world such negativity is purged, or deemed as being hopelessly uninformed - and that he will deliver on this new plan, too, just you wait and see...


(note: added paragraph-break. 2b2)

A number of senior Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) executives are pushing for an all-new Lancia Delta Integrale to be commissioned before the brand is completely wound down...
Lancia? Lancia is a dead brand.... or maybe a sombie (walking dead) brand?


Is ridiculous to spend money in a brand without future. And FCA has others priorities: Invest in the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and Grand Wagoneer, the reborn process for Alfa Romeo, the expansion of the Ferrari line, a replacement for the mediocre Dodge Dart, the launch of the American minivan...

Lancia is pretty much dead with only offering the Ypsilon and before that nothing but rebadged Chryslers. I guess though they could base a new Delta Integrale off the Dart platform since they announced awhile ago there will be a turbo AWD SRT-4. Regardless unless they are going to put a bunch of effort into Lancia it's a waste of time and money and they have better things to be working on.

Re: FCA product strategy...

On the above I'm assuming redesign means all new? I still feel FCA is being shortsighted with their killing of the Dart and 200, just because most people are buying CUVs and SUVs doesnt mean there isnt a demand for the others. The issue with the Dart is that it debuted and then was never given anymore love, nothing done to keep it fresh while the rest of the segment changed. The 200 I don't get, honestly I think it's a **** good looking car so no clue why it's not selling. Has good pricing too compared to the rest of the class.

Re: FCA product strategy...

Dropping the Dart and 200 is logical. Obviously Chrysler is losing a lot of money on these cars. I think the factory making the Dart will shift to Cherokees, and the factor making the 200 will shift to Ram. When gas prices increase, people will shift to smaller CUV's, not sedans with their fastback styling and tiny trunk lids. Based upon allpar and Automotive News, it appears the 300 will also be dropped in about 4 years, while the Charger and Challenger shift to a LWB version of the Giulia platform (around 2020 or 2021, not 2018)*.
