Chrysler 200, Dodge Dart Getting Axed Under New FCA Plan

The Chrysler 200 and Dodge Dart models will soon be discontinued.

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne shared today that the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 will eventually be discontinued, as the automaker focuses on boosting production of its popular Jeep SUVs and Ram pickup trucks. Dumping the compact sedans is a response to dropping gas prices and a shift in buying patterns, according to Marchionne, with more Americans leaning towards purchasing crossovers and pickup trucks instead of traditional cars.

The Chrysler 200 launched in 2014 and recently Marchionne called its designers dummies for copying a Hyundai models entry point to the rear seat, which turned out to be not up to snuff.

Marchionne did hint that the 200 and Dart could return to the market if another automaker is willing to manufacture the cars. It appears that both models will be axed within the next 18 months.

We have decided to de-focus, from the manufacturing standpoint, to de-focus on the passenger car market. There are two cars in particular, the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200, which will run their course, Marchionne said during a conference call with Wall Street analysts on Wednesday. Without creating additional capacity, in the United States, we need to to try and deal with the development of both Jeep and the Ram brand.
