Really, do you think that the europeans wil buy those cars? Maybe the 300 version (Thema) will find some buyers with enough money to pay the gas for this big car, but the rest of Chrysler not.

Agreed!

the Grand Voyager is a joke as well, isn't it too large for europe? I would think a short wheel base just regular Voyager would be a better size

Re: Geneva 2011: New Lancias

I actually have to think that these Lancia's...though shameless re-badges...could actually be somewhat successful. Lancia sells in markets that are less prominent in most of Europe...and compared to the cars offered by this brand in the past, these Chrysler's are a dramatic step up...despite the roots of the 200/Flavia that we see...and the Town & Country/Grand Voyager, can entice some buyers into Lancia. Plus Lancia has Oliver Francios in charge of the brand's marketing...this is the guy who just nailed that fantastic Eminem Chrysler 200 Imported from Detroit ad. I really think the quality and the nature of these new Chrysler's will be more successful for Lancia than the stand alone cars they've tried adopting from FIAT. My question though...will we get the Delta in the US soon?

Also...could Lancia have done a bit more to make the grilles on the re-badged Chrysler's match the Delta and other European spec Lancia's?

Those are my two cents...What's yours?

Lancia does not sell in any meaningful numbers outside of Italy. Some Ferrari models can outsell Lancia models in many countries.

Agree
imho just narrowing/lengthening the Chrysler grille brings it a lot closer to Lancia's

Re: Geneva 2011: New Lancias

That really does look better! Actually more...unique against the standard Chrysler and matches the Lancia's much better!

Re: Geneva 2011: New Lancias

I just can't imaging that rebadged Chryslers will sell any better in Italy than what Chryslers was able to sell on their own. This will not save Lancia. It should make things worse actually. Chevroldsmobuickiac.
