The new company, named Chrysler Group LLC, will be owned 20% by Fiat, 9.85% by the U.S. government, 2.46% by the Canadian government and 67.69% by the United Auto Workers retiree health care trust.
Congratulations! You now own a car company. Since we’re all partners in this adventure called business ownership, I think we should all get a say in how the company is run. So what changes do you want to see to Chrysler/Fiat’s lineup? I’m officially putting my vote in for a Fiat 500 SRT-4. Stuffing the Dodge Caliber SRT-4’s 285 horsepower turbocharged engine into the 500’s 2,160 pound frame would be flat out awesome. Fiat already has a high performance version of the 500, called the Abarth, so I think we can be satisfied for now if that makes its way to America.
