Chrysler Says Hello to CUVs and Good-bye to Sedans?

It shouldn't a big surprise to you to hear that CUVs are rapidly rising in popularity. At the same time, the sales of sedans have been decreasing. Automakers have been adapting to this trend be refocusing their product lineup to offer customers more CUV body style vehicles. Focusing on CUVs has meant for many automakers that there has been less of a focus on sedans.

FCA/Chrysler has seen this writing on the wall
, and has also begun adapting to the CUV trend. For example, the Maserati Levante is demanding much of the companies attention now as its launch gets closer, and other sedan releases have been delayed or cancelled.

In the Chrysler brand, two new crossover vehicles have been planned: a replacement for the Dodge Journey. and a Pacifica-like vehicle based on the new Town and Country minivan. The victim of this refocusing? The scheduled entry-level 100 sedan, which would have competed against vehicles like the Honda Civic, Chevy Cruze, Ford Focus and (FCA's own) Dodge Dart.

It is entirely possible that the 100 will be cancelled all together, though right now Chrysler is mum on the issue.

Think this is a good move? Something else you are thinking of looking into instead?

Good move since they can still pull a lot from 100 R&D into CUV development since they are car based. CUV's are also more universal, letting them target people from various segments, and at this point they need to target large demographics. Chrysler needs all they can get.

Infiniti seems to get this, with their new Q30. Guess they figured making one vehicle that targets a wide range of people is the way to go.

Soon we'll be able to see how it does with consumers, they're about to hit the market.
