Today, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram are in capable hands that follow over a century of tradition.
The origins of FCA stretch all the way back to the 1890s. Fiat was founded in 1899 where it saw its first car, the 4 HP, built. The Great War helped jump start the company in its early years before it was able to expand in the 1930s and 1940s into France, Spain, Poland and the USSR. Following the second World War, Fiat was able to greatly increase its vehicle production across the world. As early as the 1980s, Fiat started to develop electric vehicles, but in the following decades started to struggle against the increasingly tough competition across the world. Chrysler was founded in 1925, and three years later acquired what would be Dodge. Chrysler maintained through the Great Depression thanks to its multiple class of vehicles, contributed greatly towards World War II efforts with vehicle production, capitalized off post-war prosperity and kept growing steadily as they adapted to each decades’ demands. Following the merger, the company has taken on an aggressive 5-year plan to cement their status among the worldwide vehicle market.
