Chrysler vehicles could be attrition fodder if GM merger goes through
Lots of job cuts, to be sure, but when it comes to the excess vehicle models in the line-ups, Grant Thornton of the consulting firm Grant Thornton LLP, told Automotive News (subs req'd) that of the 26 or so current Chrysler models, only seven are "core" and would survive the merger: the Dodge Ram pickup; Chrysler and Dodge minivans; and several Jeep models, including the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. None of those are exactly eco-friendly, but AN writes that GM's plug-in hybrid knowledge is a vital addition to the potential merged company (file under: no kidding), while Chrysler's cash is appealing to GM (again, no kidding). What do you see surviving should a new GMrysler company take shape?
