Fiat promised a slew of new models when it took over at Auburn Hills, and our Italian cousins are making good on their word. But for the eager customers Chrysler is counting on, seeing photos of the new models is one thing, actually heading down to the local dealership and placing an order is another. Before most potential buyers these days get to that point, though, they tend want to know exactly how a new model can be spec'd out. And that's where online configurators come into play.

Fortunately Chrysler has just launched configurators featuring its array of new vehicles, including the new 200 sedan, the Town & Country minivan, as well as the Dodge Durango and Journey. You may not be able to specify the color of your seatbelts like on a Maserati, or the unfortunately-named paint shades like on a Bugatti. But if you want to know how that new Pentastar will shape up the way you want it, this'll give you a pretty darn good impression. Thanks for the tip, Ed!
