Unless something major happens between now and later in the year 2007 will see Chrysler make a big splash in the Australian motoring market place.
Last year we say Chrysler launch the Dodge Caliber – a rather unattractive vehicle that seems to be neither one thing nor the other.
And this year we’re scheduled to see the introduction of the Sebring – a convertible that is probably going to be priced a little beyond the reach of the average Australian motorist.
Apart from the fact that Chrysler makes both of these vehicle they share another common feature and that involves a Japanese car maker. You see, when Chrysler went into design mode with these two vehicles they decided not to start from scratch. Instead they started with a platform designed by Mitsubishi so the basis of both these vehicles is Japanese.
Proudly American … but made in Japan. I wonder if they mention that in their publicity.
