Chrysler 5-year business plan... all of it – Click above to view gallery

So you're not an automotive journalist and couldn't spend seven hours (!) following along yesterday as Chrysler execs presented their 5-year business plan for the company. What you missed was a bladder-busting 335-slide PowerPoint presentation that we won't soon forget. Fear not, as we've obtained the entire presentation and uploaded into a gallery. Every slide is there, including some curious ones that deserve pointing out.
  • Slide #14: The crucial demographic that Dodge is targeting to increase sales: moms with tat sleeves.
  • Slide #32: Is this the next-gen Dodge Charger or just the Charger R/T Concept?
  • Slide #38: Look familiar? It does to us! Chrysler swiped a photo of the Dodge ACR shot by our own Drew Phillips (see original here).
  • Slide #144: Did you know? The word "Jeep" is used to help kids learn how to write the letter J, as is every other word with a J in it.
  • Slide #291: A brochure for the 2010 Chrysler 300 that shows a mystery grille. We've seen the brochure's contents, which instead show the model currently on sale.
  • Slide #303: The speaker onstage said the Viper would return in 2012, the slide says it's under consideration.
Now it's your turn. Let us know if you find anything strange, wrong or worth pointing out in the comments below.

      The Dodge Caliber is being discontinued in 2012? Darn! It will be missed....NOT!

      Replace the Sebring by the Chrysler LX Based 200C concept, not a Fiat based car.

      the 200C is said to be similar in size to a BMW 5-Series. So increasing the 300C size to be close to the 7 Series would be good(Which isn't far off). call the 200C the Concorde. with a Concorde Coupe and Estate/Wagon and an SRT8 version with the 6.4 to against the CTS-V Sedan, Coupe and Wagon

      Then make a small RWD car(Using the LX rear axle?) similarly sized to the E46 3 Series(Not E92) and call it the Cirrus, have it up against the 3 Series with a Cirrus SRT6 with a Twin Turbo Pheonix(Making around 390HP?) to match the M3. Sedan Coupe and Wagon aswell with this.

      The smaller cars should be handled by Fiat.

      Another good package would be a LWB 300C Imperial that would be with a.

      5.7L Hemi engine, about 420HP. (Revised from the 390HP Ram engine currently)
      Longer and Wider than the normal 300.
      2 or 3 TV Sets at the back
      Option for a 4 or 5 Seater.
      Suspension tuning aimed for comfort rather than performance(Smoother ride quality)
      Optional splitter(Similar to Maybach's)

      Correction: HOT moms with tat sleeves.
        • 5 Years Ago
        How about hot moms without tat sleeves?
      • 5 Years Ago
      So how are they going to get TaT mom to give up her '72 4 door Valiant?

      Slide #78: driveability and outward visibility are the lowest priorities? Ride and handling don't rank very high either.

      So, the plan is good looking cars that drive poorly?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Rather interesting, especially the Ram brand. I wonder if GM, Chevy and Ford will do the same to their established pick up truck lineup. I am hoping for the better for Chrysler.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You mean like GM - GMC & Hummer? Good plan!

      How about posting this as a PDF?

      That's not the '99 concept Charger. Lots of details differ. Has to be the upcoming one. But clearly the marching orders to Design were to go back and take a hard look at the '99.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I'd agree. The clearest details are the door handles. The '99 concept had recessed handles, whereas here the handles are production-ready. It looks good, IMHO

      A picture of a black sheep with a red stripe? WTH?
        • 5 Years Ago
        It makes about as much since as the Ram brand (get it). The ACR is a Dodge (Ram logo) and is the black sheep of the sports car market (as they perceive it).

      honestly i think the new chrysler has so many potentials.

      Chrysler Line up
      Fiat 500
      200c
      300c
      Town&Country
      Imperial
      Firepower

      If they would give best interior and design what customer acctually wants they will be the winner. They do make some nice vehicles. 300c is still most attractive vehicle on the street(except the inerior)
