Automotive brand manufacturing subsidiary of fiat chrysler automobiles

Chrysler is a label created by the Chrysler Group LLC, which since 2014 has been part of the Italian Fiat. Concurrently with Ford and General Motors, they compose the Big Detroit Three.


The organization was established in 1924 by creator and businessman Walter Percy Chrysler.

He worked as a mechanic on the railways, as a supervisor at the enterprises of the American Locomotive Company. From 1912 he moved to the Buick corporation, and in 1916 he headed it. In 1919, Chrysler became vice president of General Motors, which included Buick. In 1920-24, Chrysler took part in the reorganization of the companies "Willis-Overland" and "Maxwell Motor". The reorganized firm was named "Chrysler" and began producing cars created by Chrysler himself.

In the Second World War, the Americans switched to display for military purposes, and with the onset of peacetime, they persisted in producing cars. In 1980, Chrysler plunged into the deepest economic crisis and finally recovered from it just in the 1990s. In 1998, the corporation united with the Daimler-Benz concern, and in 2014 came under the control of FIAT.

These cars, equipped with high-compression engines and hydraulic drives, sold out well. It evolved into one of the 3 largest automakers in the United States, subsequently buying a company such as Dodge. Chrysler eloquently titled his book of memoirs "The Life of an American Worker."

Jeep is more than a brand name; it's a byword for any kind of off-roader. Becoming one of the most emblematic carmakers in the world was easier said than done.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Playing defense on his handling of the coronavirus, President Donald Trump is letting the falsehoods fly. Over the weekend, he railed against cases of voting fraud that didn't exist, asserted that COVID-19 was "rounding a corner" despite what his top health advisers say and blasted Joe Biden for supposed positions on energy and health care that his Democratic rival doesn't hold. As the rhetoric flew during the past week, both Trump and Biden exaggerated accomplishments - Trump about himself and Biden about his son, Beau - as well as their own influence in reviving the auto industry. A recent sampling: VIRUS TRUMP: "We are rounding the corner." - remarks Sunday at a Latino roundtable event in Las Vegas. TRUMP: The coronavirus "is rounding the turn, rounding the corner." - remarks Saturday to reporters in Reno, Nevada. THE FACTS: To be clear, that's not what his top health advisers say. "I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that," Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious diseases expert, told MSNBC on Friday, calling the current coronavirus levels seven months into the pandemic "disturbing." He expressed concern about a potential spike in cases following the Labor Day holiday beyond a present rate of 40,000 cases a day and 1,000 deaths. "What we don't want to see is going into the fall season, when people will be spending more time indoors - and that's not good for a respiratory-borne virus - you don't want to start off already with a baseline that's so high," Fauci said. Fauci this past week also cautioned that people should not "underestimate" the pandemic and they will "need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it's not going to be easy." He and other health...
