Chrysler's Heritage | Capital CJDR of Indian Trail
Chrysler always has and always will be one of the most innovative automobile manufacturers on the planet, always aiming past the mark and setting the bar higher with each proceeding model. Chrysler pushes for the most perfect vehicle and has never stopped looking for new ways to make the automotive industry at large even better. Let us show you how Chrysler’s commitment to excellence and fresh engineering has panned out through the last century:
1924 - Affordable luxury was the goal. In 1924 Chrysler premiered its first car, the Chrysler Six featuring state-of-the-art innovation for the day and time: a high-compression six-cylinder engine, and four-wheel hydraulic brakes, which was the first time the four-wheel hydraulic brakes came standard on a passenger car model.
1951 - Chrysler engineered and released its hemispheric-head V8 engine (HEMI®), which
1955-1962 - This decade in the Chrysler story became one of the most innovative and influential to the Chrysler name. With the release of (arguably) the first muscle car, the 1955 Chrysler 300, which featured a different, unusual appearance characteristic of the
1965-1970 - As the ‘60’s advanced, the Chrysler vehicles lost the flash of the
1975 - The Chrysler Cordoba instantly became Chrysler’s most popular model, selling more than all of Chrysler’s models combined, and gave Chrysler more reason to give back the public with other Chrysler “smaller models”.
1980-1987 - With the entrance of the minivan to the automotive market in 1984, the Chrysler Town & Country nameplate saw a recovery on a new fresh version of the vehicle. The highlight of the
1988 - 1998 - With new leadership, Chrysler recovered to its roots - engineering and design with the slogan of “affordable luxury”.
2005 - Since
2012 - The 300 is back again, and this time it looks like it has hit the gym and gained some muscle mass. The 2012 model of the 300 flaunted 420 pound-feet of torque and a mountainous 425 horsepower. Leave it to Chrysler to offer excellent muscle and elegant luxury under one affordable hood.
2016-2017 - Starting the new era of the minivan, Chrysler built their Pacifica model from scratch, and aimed at being an industry-leading, family-sized minivan that still showed off Chrysler’s heritage of design mastery with smooth, aerodynamic lines and sculpted exterior. And as if you could not improve upon perfection, Chrysler’s innovation took their Pacifica to the next level, introducing the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid - America’s first ever hybrid minivan. This design giant stood tall and had a 566 total driving range, with 33 miles of pure electric range.
Does anyone know innovation and design more intimately than Chrysler? Through the years, Chrysler has been ahead of the crowd in fresh, industry-leading innovation and this doesn’t seem to
