Founded in 1925, the Chrysler Group has been one of the “big three” of American automobile manufacturing for decades. The main brands of the group were Dodge and Plymouth in the cheap vehicle class, Chrysler for the middle and upper class and at the top of the vehicles from Imperial. By the middle of the 1980er years, the carmakers of Chrysler were relatively successful, followed by a steady decline in customer favor. From 1998 was Mercedes Benz Partner and main shareholder, but also could not bring long-term improvement. After the bankruptcy in the year 2008 which was settled with the help of state funds, the group went to the Italian Fiat Group. In Europe, the brand has become known through the Van Voyager and the large sedan Chrysler 300. The models Crossfire, Avenger and Stratus are mid-range vehicles that can be helped by a skilful tuning to a quite sporty driving. Also for the large van, which is now sold under the name Pacifica, various auto tuning specialists have technical and visual improvements in stock.
