Chrysler is close to making a decision on the replacement for the two SUVs dying a slow, painful death. At the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne said that the company is near making a decision on the replacement for the Dodge Nitro and Jeep Liberty SUVs.
“It’s the most significant hole in our product portfolio,” said Marchionne.
Referring to the Nitro, Marchionne said: “It needs to be replaced,” but not necessarily by a Dodge-brand SUV. He said that the company has been conducting clinics on replacement models and has it about 80% right.
“Give us about 40 days” to make a decision, he said. We’re counting Marchionne.
