Ralph Gilles is da man over at Chrysler, having previously headed the team responsible for the 300, Dodge Magnum and Dodge Charger. Gilles was working on the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country replacements until the powers that be decided he should lay his healing hands upon the company's light truck division. This article by Auto123 cites the current sales trend for nearly every automaker in the light truck segment, and while Chrysler and its divisions have seen an upswing of 4%, there is apparently much work to be done. While Gilles will not directly influence any of the possible new models mentioned in the article (like the Dodge Nitro pictured), he does hold the reigns now for Chrysler in a segment that's increasingly teeming with competition.
