So the Chrysler 100 is based off of the Dodge Dart. The Dodge Dart is a pretty affordable little vehicle. It starts at $15,995 and goes up to $22,495 for the top of the line model.

I was trying to figure out what you'd get from the top trim Dodge Dart compared to the entry-level Chrysler 100.



The Dodge Dart comes with a seven-inch "reconfigurable instrument cluster display," fog lamps, active grille shutters and premium accent stitching. As well as 18-inch alloys, sport suspension, more aggressive front fascia, dual exhaust, unique seat leather and a heated steering wheel.

It also gets a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque.

We will have to see what a base 100 will get you and cost you.

The Chrysler 100 will compete in the C-segment. Competitors include the Ford Focus sedan, upcoming new Chevrolet Cruze sedan, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, and VW Jetta.

From the Chrysler shareholder presentation on May 6, 2014:

Best of luck to Chrysler if they are attempting to unseat the Corolla or the Civic. I would hope that they can outdo the sales of the Jetta though. I feel that VW vehicles are really boring and generic. The styling of the Chrysler 100 should be enough to surpass the Jetta. The rest of the competition is pretty stiff.

no the big three never really care about the Japanese, their goal above all is to beat the others from Detroit!

At a certain point I think it is more about brand familiarity than it is about the quality of the vehicle. Even if the 100 looks amazing, it's hard to get people away from a Toyota, for example.

^ that does work to an extent, i think toyota has had their fair share of issues that showed people that even they can have cars with serious issues and aren't always the most reliable.

The product has to be good but I think that brand loyalty means a lot to people. They won't switch brands unless they have a good reason to. If it ain't broke don't fix it, ya know?
