Find Used Chrysler's Car in Utah

The Chrysler Corporation was founded by Walter P. Chrysler in 1925. The Maxwell Motor Corporation of Detroit was also owned by him, and used it as a basis for this new car company. Chrysler was quick to come into a excellent reputation for their modern engineering. They were able to expand in 1928, with the purchase of Dodge and the creation of two new divisions, DeSoto and Plymouth. The Chrysler Airflow was one of the first autos to be engineered specifically for aerodynamics; it was powered by a front-mounted inline-8. However, the Airflow was not considered a success with the public, perhaps too futuristic of a vehicle. Chrysler survived the Depression, mostly due to its strength in entry-level Dodge and Plymouth brands. This was likely because of their traditional designs and affordable price. After the war, Chrysler began an upward climb. They even outsold Ford as the number two auto maker in the late 1940s. The ‘Hemi’ V8, which we still here about today in advertisements and commercials, debuted in 1951. The purpose of the Hemi, with 180 horsepower, was to override the V8 offered by Cadillac, Chrysler's main rival. The DeSoto name was dropped by 1961 and Chrysler went into the direction of new technology. These included uni-body construction and the introduction of alternators. In the 1960s Chrysler vehicles became a big part of NASCAR and performance was their main focus. The 1970s were a difficult time for most auto manufacturers, including Chrysler. There was even a botched expansion overseas and by the end of the decade they searched for a government loan bailout to save them. Lee Iacocoa became the Chrysler chairman and launched a public campaign to boost the company. He was successful and the first modern mini van helped improve the financial situation, allowing them to pay off the government loan in an unprecedented amount of time. The company then purchased American Motors Corporation (Jeep), were involved in a venture with Mitsubishi, and merged with Daimler-Benz. This brought on the new name of DaimlerChrysler. Yet there was no equality in this new corporation, and Daimler quickly became the dominant partner. As gas prices rose, and Chryslers vehicles were found to be based on high powered gas hogs, Daimler sold Chrysler for a loss in 2007. Today Chrysler has launched a new division – ENVI. It was formed specifically to design and engineer electric vehicles. They expect to offer a variety of electric vehicles, and the Electric based Town & Country is expected to be ready by 2010. It is predicted to go 400 miles on eight to ten gallons of gas.
