    Chrysler Dealers Given A Sneak Peak At Products In Vegas

    Yesterday, Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne led a day-long product preview in Las Vegas for Chrysler and Fiat dealers. The preview showed products from Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Fiat, and Jeep.

    According to Reuters, Alfa Romeo showed two new models to dealers. Most likely, one of those models was the 4C coupe. The other one could have been a crossover or the new Giulia.

    Chrysler showed the 100 Subcompact and the new 200. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Chrysler is spending $2 billion on the next 200, with the expectation to double sales. The new 200 will come with a nine-speed automatic transmission to help improve fuel economy.

    The Wall Street Journal also reports that Fiat showed the new 500L and a electric version of the 500.

    Jeep had the biggest showing. Reuters says the brand showed new versions of the Compass, Patriot, and Liberty. The appearance of the Compass and Patriot is a bit of surprise, since previous reports have the Compass going away.

    A dealer who was at the preview says the three vehicles look more like the Grand Cherokee. The three vehicles will use Fiat platforms.
