Chrysler group plans big product rollout

March 27, 2007, 10am. Financial problems within the DaimlerChrysler empire haven’t interfered with an ambitious roll-out of new Chrysler products in New Zealand.

Local boss Brett Aspden outlined a major new-model programme during last week’s launch of the Jeep Wrangler.

The mid-sized Sebring sedan is due at the end of May, along with the Jeep Patriot, which is basically a Compass with a more traditional Jeep-like body.

The Dodge Nitro (pictured), which shares the Jeep Cherokee platform, is scheduled for introduction in June, along with the Dodge Avenger sedan, built on a platform shared with Mitsubishi.
