When the Group Daimler (Mercedes Benz) abandoned the Group Chrysler LLC left them in a situation very committed technological. The American Group did not have sufficient resources to deal with major investments in technology and engines. Because it had to settle for the crumbs that the Germans left them and they are coming up to our days.

Obviously or weight, flexibility is a platform that adapts to the times that run and PAAS models are less competitive than its main rivals.
With the arrival of Fiat to the shareholders of the now defunct group Chrysler LLC will change things, although perhaps not at the pace that would like the Americans. The reason is simple since currently FCA has their resources very concentrated in resurrect to Alpha Romeo and create a range of thrusters and platform modular of propulsion back it enough good as to give life to many and varied models.

So far the current Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger are updated deeply next year receiving important changes. These changes will bring as a new version of the abandoned Challenger T return for 46 years, but for now will remain unchanged at the level of platform and mechanical.
Future generations of these models reach the market on rear propulsion Giorgio platform. This has been specifically developed for Alfa Romeo, and thanks to the use of this future FCA models will be at the level of those who are presenting General Motors and Ford Motor.
