Get to Know Chrysler
Chrysler is one of the most reputable brands in the automotive industry, but did you know that it’s endured a tumultuous history since its founding in the 1920s? Walter P. Chrysler introduced the first Chrysler car in 1924 and formed the Chrysler Corporation a year later only to see the company purchased by the American Body Company. This enabled Chrysler to divide its growing fleet of vehicles into various brands like the affordable Plymouth and the higher-end DeSoto. Around this time, Chrysler also merged with Dodge Brothers and gained a foothold in the truck business.
Chrysler halted car production during World War II to produce trucks, aircraft parts, guns, ammunition, bombs, and tanks. Following the war, the brand struggled to regain its footing against competitors like General Motors and Ford, who produced more reliable and powerful vehicles. Fortunately, this shifted by the 1960s when Chrysler entered the market of muscle cars with the Plymouth Barracuda, the Road Runner, and the Dodge Charger.
Throughout the 1970s, Chrysler and many other leading car manufacturers endured financial turmoil. Chrysler received a $1.5 billion loan from the US government by the end of the decade and spent the next two decades repaying the loan and planning for a brighter future. This future included the introduction of Jeep into the Chrysler lineup in 1987, followed by Daimler-Benz purchasing Chrysler to form DaimlerChrysler AG. The merger ended nearly a decade later, leaving Chrysler alone to struggle through the automotive industry crisis between 2008 and 2010.
Chrysler filed for bankruptcy in 2009 and spent the next several years repaying its debts as Fiat acquired the majority of shares in the company. This led to the newly formed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA US LLC). It’s also where we find the Chrysler brand today with models like the Pacifica that offers seating for eight, the Pacific Hybrid that gets up to 82 MPG on the highway, the 300 that delivers 363 horsepower, and the Voyager that offers seating for seven and a fuel economy of 28 MPG on the highway. We’re proud to say that you’ll find all these models and more on The Faricy Boys lot.
