Chrysler will get out of Chapter 11 in the next 30 or 60 days but at that time, the company will continue the production of current models while the migration to new assembly lines will take more time, especially in the case of 2010 models.
The 2010 Dodge Ram heavy duty truck was one of the model scheduled to be launched next year that will record a slight delay before the official launch, just like the 2011 Grand Cherokee. However, this model was unveiled to the general public at the New York Auto Show last April and was initially projected to go on sale through authorized dealerships next spring.
What's interesting is that Chrysler had even more enthusiastic plans when it comes to its product lineup, with several full-electric models thought to be launched in 2010. Well, after Chapter 11 has been finally confirmed, things are way too unclear so we're still waiting to discover Chrysler's very own way to get things straight.
Speaking of the Fiat alliance, Chrysler's CEO Bob Nardelli explained the first models sourced from the Italian automaker are likely to be launched in the United States in approximately 18 months. However, details related to the Fiat models to be sold in Chrysler's domestic market are still sketchy, despite a few rumors claiming that small-displacement and fuel efficient vehicles are favorite to enter the US.
