Homepage Alfa Romeo
I was checking out what Alfa Romeo has to offer. Their 159 looks like it should be a Chrysler but there are some other models that could go to Dodge for performance. Even Jeremy Clarkson liked the 159 and compared it favorably to the BMW 3 series. What do you think of the 159 and the other models Alfa has to offer Chrysler/Dodge?

I think Chrysler should be their car line-up and dodge should be the pick-up truck and suv line-up exculuding jeep cause it is it's own brand.

Neither. Fiat is planning to bring in Alfas in the next couple of years, and they should. There's no need to disguise an Alfa Romeo as a Chrysler, since the products are marketed to entirely different consumers. They need to revamp Chrysler's model line, however.

I totally agree!

Chrysler has already re-branded their trucks as Ram.

Alfa's already here with the 8C and the 8C Spyder, the former of which has been here for a couple of years now. The question is, now that FIAT has a major stake in Chrysler, do they still want to sell bread-and-butter Alfas here under their own name, or under an already established name with an already established dealer network?

Anyway, I don't see any of these selling as Dodges except the MiTo and maybe the 147. A few of them as Chryslers, maybe.

They'll probably bring them over as is under their current brand names and then cheapen them and water them down for the Chrysler retirees who buy them when they introduce them as Chryslers or Dodges, like Daimler did with the SLK/Crossfire and the E-Class/300 et al.

hmm looking at the link, i think Uma Thurman should go to me, and then the giulietta should replace the poor caliber. the 159 should replace the avenger, and the charger and challanger should stay the same.

then offer alfa romeo as its own exclusive brand by order only.
