2011 Chrysler 200 – Click on top of for high-res picture gallery
Some competence flout Lancia as a Plymouth of a Fiat group, yet instead of being killed off similar to a gone American marque, a pseudo-premium Italian multiplication is being teamed up with Chrysler in an bid to enlarge a Pentastar’s tellurian strech whilst rejuvenating a Lancia brand.
We’ve seen a pairing take outcome already by a appointment of Lancia CEO Olivier Francois as well as a toe-in-the-water proof of a Chrysler-badged Lancia Delta during final year’s Detroit show, yet it looks similar to things could eventually manifest during a arriving Geneva Motor Show.
There, according to a ultimate reports from Europe, a Fiat/Chrysler fondness will betray a Lancia-fied chronicle of a latest Chrysler 200. The indication is approaching to revitalise a Flavia nameplate final seen in 1975 as well as embrace usually a couple of modifications, in a form of a latest grille (natch), European-spec bumpers as well as a probable automatic additions of a primer delivery as well as motor fuel engine.
Headline yet a growth is, it is approaching to be usually a single of multiform latest debuts – a little Chrysler-based, a little not – that Lancia has programmed for a Swiss expo. A Chrysler 300-based Thema flagship sedan is reportedly in a cards, as could be a Lancia chronicle of a Chrysler Town & Country minivan (as a intensity deputy for a Phedra that was mutually constructed in between Fiat as well as PSA). Finally, Lancia is approaching to betray a latest Ypsilon hatchback, that itself could have a approach Stateside as a Chrysler. Now all you need is a Pentastar-badged chronicle of a New Stratos as well as we’ll be all set.
