Chrysler is an American automobile manufacturer founded in 1925 by Walter Chrysler. It became part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group in 2014, but retains its original name and headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The company manufactures a wide range of vehicles under different brands, including Dodge, Jeep and Ram Trucks.
In 1925 Walter Chrysler took over Maxwell Motor Company after working as president of Buick for several years prior. He reorganized the business and renamed it to create one of America’s largest auto manufacturers at the time. During this period they produced some iconic models such as the Airflow which was ahead of its time with aerodynamic styling and engineering features that included a 6-cylinder engine.
Through acquisitions and mergers throughout their history, eventually leading up to their merger with Fiat SpA in 2014 creating FCA US LLC – known today as FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). This new entity allowed them to become even more competitive on the global market while still retaining strong ties to American culture through their branding initiatives such as “Imported from Detroit” or sponsoring events like NASCAR races across North America. Today they are best known for producing cars that have great performance combined with modern technology innovations; like adaptive cruise control systems or advanced infotainment systems found on many popular models like Jeep Cherokee or Grand Cherokee SUVs .
They continue to push automotive boundaries with concepts like electric powered pickup trucks designed specifically for off road use – further solidifying Chrysler’s place among other industry leaders within automotive manufacturing worldwide.
