Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is able to build vehicles in China thanks to a partnership with Chinese automaker Guangzhou Auto. Guangzhou wants FCA to return the favor by helping them enter the U.S.

 

"Chrysler's development in China required our support. Now for GAC Motor's development in the U.S. we also hope for Chrysler's support and help," said GAC Motor General Manager Wu Song to Reuters at the Beijing auto show.

 

Guangzhou Auto's subsidiary GAC Motor announced its intentions last year to enter the U.S. by 2017. The company has already been talking with dealerships about selling their vehicles and doing tests on U.S. roads. Song told Reuters the company has also started tests in China on two of its car models against American standards.

 

What would FCA offer Guangzhou Auto? Song and representatives of GAC Motor didn't elaborate and FCA spokesman declined to comment. Our best guess is FCA knows what interests Americans at the moment and know the various U.S. regulations.

Maybe this is the partner that will build the 200 and Dart going forward.

 

I seriously think that the Chinese built cars might actually be assembled better because a lot of factories in China are new...can you believe it?

 

But again...what happened to imported from Detroit? 

 

Because the Pacifica is assembled in Windsor. The LX cars are assembled in Brampton. And the 200 might be made either in Japan or China.... Weird turnaround.
