Who makes Chrysler?
Chrysler is a marque of luxury cars owned by FCA US LLC, which, in its turn, is the subsidiary of FCA N.V. Chrysler is the company’s core brand. It was founded in 1925, and almost at the same time the first car under this brand was launched.
Partnership with Daimler-Benz AG ended in Chrysler’s acquisition by Daimler in the late 1990s. The company was sold once again in 2007, to Cerberus Capital Management, then was purchased by Fiat.
Where is Chrysler made?
The company that manufactures vehicles under the Chrysler brand, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), has 30 factories around the world. However, as far as FCA owns over 10 brands (Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Jeep, and Abarth, to name just a few), most of its factories do not make Chrysler cars, they produce vehicles for other brands from FCA’s portfolio.
Chrysler Pacifica and Chrysler Town & Country are manufactured at the oldest of all Dodge manufacturing plants, which was built in 1928. The plant is located in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. One more Canadian plant, in Brampton, Ontario, manufactures Chrysler 300.
There are two plants in Mexico: one in Ramos Arizpe (manufactures the Hemi engines: 5.7, 6.2, 6.4), and the other in Saltillo (manufactures Pentastar engine: 3.6).
The majority of FCA’s plants are based in the US. Three of them, located in Michigan, deal with Chrysler cars: in Detroit (the Pentastar engine: 3.2, 3.6), in Sterling Heights (Chrysler 200), and in Trenton (the Pentastar engine: 3.0, 3.2, 3.6).
