FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

Major changes expected for Fiat Chrysler’s 5-year plan

This looks to favor the Jeep brand. If the changes move forward we will be seeing a lot more development focus with our Jeeps. Wondering if that will push out the JGC new model design or speed it up.

Any word Marlon or Milous?

Interesting read, and...

"Other expected detours from the original plan include keeping the Dodge Grand Caravan based on market demand through 2016, and production delays to several vehicles, including the Maserati Levante, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Jeep Grand Cherokee and others."

Re: FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

And from today: Dodge Dart, Chrysler 200 to go away under new FCA plan

Interestingly from that article: The automaker may be planning both a Jeep Grand Wagoneer and a Wagoneer.

Thumbs up Re: FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

I hope the wagoneer / grand wagoneer are full size so I dont have to buy the wife a tahoe.
Also wish there was more info on what they will look like.

Re: FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

I've been around awhile now, "old school" if you will, and this scenario, like life itself, keeps coming around again & again, kinda like ground hog day !
I can't help but "feel" again this "feeling" of a Bad Omen.
At 1st I was all for the Fiat-Chrysler Marriage. Pure sentiment perhaps as my 1st car (& new) was the Fiat 850 Sport Coupe ('71), but now ?
Divorce needs to be on the table . . . I'm not suggesting revolt, just (Hopefully) an amicable Separation leading to Divorce IF there are Irreconcilable Differences. And I see this Progression of Marchionne's apparent inability to see beyond his nose Frustrating ! "Raping" Chrysler's bottom line $$$, and Diminishing the Brands WILL have a ripple effect across the board, Mark My Words" ! Motivation and Moral will drop, as will Quality (again?). Employee levels will also drop off as the # of Non-Chrysler USA built CARS dwindles !
Back in the day, I never had much liking for the Mitsubishi versions of Dodges or any other Iterations of Non-Chrysler built Chryslers over the years, TILL FCA USA ! Marchionne needs To GO or someone needs to make him truly aware of OUR companies Historical facts - TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS & NEARSIGHTED GLASSES ! The 200 is a FABULOUS CAR even with a suspect 9 speed tranny !
I wish Mr. GILES had the "audacity" to take on Fiat and get this SEPARATION underway now before BOTH Companies Drown in FIATS Floundering Performances month after month & Years before & after the Prearranged Marriage ! All IMHO of course.

Re: FCA getting ready to announce NEW 5 year plan

It is becoming pretty clear that Sergio Marchionne's main objective is to doll up and sell/merge FCA so that the Agnelli family can cash out. Before the Chrysler you would have to pay someone to take Fiat off your hands, so he has used Chrysler and a fortuitous drop in Gas prices to put Jeep/Ram sales into overdrive and make the financial picture look decent.
Sergio is playing some kind of financial games to boost the books and keep the whole house of cards from collapsing because of the mess named Fiat. His main focus seems to be on grandstanding and releasing fancy plans that never materialize. There is a great article on Autoblog that echoes some things I have heard from chrysler engineers who are friends of mine.
I doubt the new GC will be released before 2020, and the Grand Wagoner even after that.

The troubled Alfa Romeo Giulia needs serious help [UPDATE]
I do not have any friends on the inside, however, as my opinions (above) on the matter suggest that I tend to UNFORTUNATELY agree with your MY20 vs. MY19 on the "new" G.C. ! In the current "FCA-scheme" of things, whats one more year ! ? This OBSESSION of His with ALFA / FIAT in AMERICA - while refusing to take full advantage of all the CDJR Dealerships is BAD Management Period ! It shows His True colors - of not really caring about CD in the CDJR Future ! AND His only caring of JR in the CDJR world is because these 2 are & have been the MONEY MAKERS ! The further shortsightedness of declaring the 200 "dead" &/or have some other "mediocre" manufacturer rebadge something & call it a 200 . . . B.S. ! His priorities for a cohesive FCA LLC, have been compromised by the Agnelli Family Wishes !
WELL, what ever the outcome, CDJR will never be the same, UNTIL or IF they can find themselves an insider leader & get the $$$ backing to Break Away from the FIAT grip of death ! My hope is for CDJR run by Giles as CEO ! They may have to downsize for a while, but in the end - unless the Wall Street Scenario repeats - CDJR should be just fine !
. . . and occasionally we can dream . . . can't we ?

CJDR will not be able to break free of Fiat, because no one wants Fiat and letting Fiat go under will likely make the Exor (the Agnelli Familiy's holding company) responsible for its obligations. It is starting to (very clearly) show that merging with Chrysler was a shell game to make the whole enterprise salable. Sergio, and the Agnellis had no long term vision of running a viable automaker they had a 10 year plan to sell the merged enterprise and ride off into the sunset...Sergio will probably get a fat paycheck if he succeeds. All of this also fits in with all the big plans that Sergio releases (which all happen after 2018), and his planned retirement in 2018.
The only interested customers I can think of would be a Chinese company with lots of cash interested in a US/EU dealer network and tier 1 automaker knowhow. No other tier 1 automaker would be interested in this mess.

WOW "SOX," not only do you have access to OUR Allpar site, but you also have APPLE stores TOO ? AND "Swiss Cheese ? Next trip down to Melfi ask (politely) if "they" - the Agnelli's - would consider selling OUR (that is America's) CDJR Company to Mr. Giles (of current FCA Conundrum) ! That is while it still is CDJR . . . i.e.; before it becomes just Fiat-Jeep-Ram US ! Gotta Love these ALPS, a beautiful thing to see.
