Here are the basics: according to LaSorda, Chrysler and Fiat will produce at least one car at a Chrysler plant, and it will use the Fiat C-Evo platform that underpins the Fiat Bravo. It will probably be a sedan, based on what we’re hearing from the industry buzz about this news, but it could also be the Grande Punto itself, which RideLust predicted might come over. The 500 will come, of course, but it’s unclear from LaSorda’s statement if it will be produced in a US factory. Interestingly, the Panda is a likely platform too, according to a similar document by Chrysler financial advisor Robert Manzo. Fiat engines are also going to play a role, specifically the 3.0L diesel and 1.4L gas engines.
Finally, several Alfa Romeos are likely to come over, including the MiTo (similar to the Grande Punto) and the new and as of yet unrevealed Milano. We’re VERY excited about the potential to get Alfa Romeo back. Let’s hope the 8C comes over too!
