90 Years of Chrysler History – Part 2

90 years

The team at All-Star Chrysler cars dealership near Clayton is excited to be celebrating the 90th year of Chrysler.  Today, we continue our two-part series on the brand’s extensive history!

1970s – Thanks to stricter emissions standards, the oil embargo, and fuel shortages, the muscle car era came to an end during the 1970s. During this time, the Chryler Cordoba was introduced.

1980s – The 1980s brought with it a financial crisis for Chrysler and a return to basics for the company. During this time Chrysler introduced an all-new vehicle segment known as the minivan.

1990s – In the 1990s, Chrysler gave the world the first luxury minivan and innovative, standard safety features never offered before. In 1999, the 300 nameplate was re-introduced to the brand with the 300M. This vehicle would go on to win Motor Trend’s “Car of the Year” award for that year.

2000s – During the 2000s, Chrysler merged with Daimler. Buyers got a fourth-generation Town & Country minivan, the 2001 Motor Trend “Car of the Year” winning PT Cruiser, and the Chrysler Pacifica. In 2005, Chrysler once again gave buyers a rear-wheel option with the Chrysler 300 series of sedans.

2010s – In most recent history, the Chrysler brand has once-again refocused on it’s founding principals of offering “a mass-market brand that delivers innovative engineering, groundbreaking style and most important, all of this at a very attainable price.” For buyers this has meant an all-new Chrysler 200 mid-size and Chrysler 300 sedan, both of which received a totally new look for the 2015 model year. Next up, will be the next generation Town & Country minivan set to debut during the first quarter of 2016!
