Future's So Bright, We Gotta Wear ...

by Mike Driehorst

If you haven't heard yet, Chrysler Group had a private, confidential dealer announcement show this week where we let our business partners in on our plans for the next couple years or so. (Or, at least we tried to have a private, confidential show.)

As you can see below, we talked with a handful of dealers, and, collectively, we're excited about the prospects of the recent, positive, successful momentum not letting up.

The 6,000 attendees from 2,600 dealerships and suppliers saw 66 new cars, special editions and new models that we plan to roll...
