Assuming you mean RCR is wrong, no. They will go out of business if they don’t start offering a wider variety of models.

But, Chrysler might be able to sustain itself on FIAT 500s and trucks and Jeeps, maybe

It’s quite funny seeing people having little wars over which american car brand is best american car brand. Here in Europe we’re like : “omfg their muscle cars are magnificent with tons of power with holy v8s” . America is probably the only country where their own car brands are hated rather than being loved for what they do . It’s rare seeing Americans enjoying an american car just because it’s powerful or because it stands out ,everyone argues which car is the best

You are completely right. Chevrolet owners are always arguing with Ford and the other way round. It never really stops here…

It’s really more of Chevy vs Ford. Very few Mopar people I’ve met since joining Mopar/Challenger clubs are die hard Mopar fans. Most of them (like myself) just got Challengers because we thought Dodge did the best job with bringing back the classic styling

A lot of it just having a passion for the brand you like. You recognize that other cars from other brands are good, but it’s a competitive thing. It’s no fun if you’re just “meh” about cars; it’s having a passion for them.

I tend to dislike American cars, but I don’t choose it that way, it just is. The big three don’t happen to make anything that interests me.

They need a good entry level car. They built a 707 HP car, but still no entry level economy car. The business model is sketchy at best.

I disagree. It is exactly what a muscle car should be, loud, rediculous, and fast. Because f*ck you that’s why.

He’s not complaining about the car being bad. He says several times in the video that its amazing. The problem is that Chrysler NEED good economy cars because, once again, they’re circling the drain and need money.

The Hellcat doesn’t sign paycheques. Econoboxes do.

Chrysler can’t make a “regular” car because when they do (i.e. The Dart), everyone complains about it anyways!

That’s what I was thinking. And now with the larger backing of Fiat, etc they shouldn’t have to. YES they should make a few hybrids here and there but Fiat does have small cars, albeit in another market.

Yep, everyone hates Chrysler even when they make good cars. It’s just not fair D:. Also Dodge don’t make regular cars. Chrysler is going to make mainstream vehicles (5 year plan said so apparently).

The problem with the Dodge Dart is that its main opponent, the Ford Focus, was simply a better car. The Dart’s weakest engine has 160 hp and 220 Nm and can only be combined with a 6-speed transmission. Not really neccessary for a car with that target audience. A smaller engine and a 5-speed transmission would have lowered the base price, making it perhaps a little more successful. Also, the Focus has a much better suspension and steering and is already established on the market. The Dart yet has to prove itself.

This is right. Why can’t Chrysler make a performance car that can actually put down power without spinning its wheels for miles and can actually corner? Ford and Chevrolet have done it, now it’s Chrysler’s turn.

I’m sorry. But no Mr. Regular, Americans don’t want economy cars. FCA released the Dart, and everyone bought it, but at the same time they were like “oooh this is small, the dart was muscle, hurr you’ve ruined the name, 4 cylinders are for Italians”
