Chrysler Group to have a large Sema presence

One of the biggest car shows of the year for modified vehicles is Sema in Las Vegas each year. Chrysler has announced that it will have 20 Mopar-modified Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, RAM, Fiat, and SRT vehicles on hand at the Sema show in November. The show cars will be part of a 15,300 square-foot exhibit Chrysler has to show off its performance parts and accessories for various vehicles.

Sema takes place November 5-8 that the Las Vegas Convention Center. "We developed these Mopar-modified vehicles to inspire ultimate customization," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC's service, parts and customer-care brand. "With catalogs full of proven, quality-tested performance parts and accessories, Mopar is a one-stop shop for factory-engineered personalization."

Chrysler isn't offering all the details on its show cars just yet. We'll have to wait and see what they unveil at the show. So far, all we have is a drawing of the Fiat 500 concept. Chrysler does have a history of introducing interesting cars at the show so I can't wait to see what they have this year.

Toyota explains what names like Camry and Yaris mean

Oct 20 2014 2:37pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Etc., Marketing/Advertising, Toyota Ever wonder where automakers get the names for their cars? You're not alone. The sitcom Seinfeld opened Episode 94 - the one where George Costanza buys a Chrysler LeBaron instead of a Volvo - with a bit about nameplates like Integra, Supra and Impreza. Toyota, clearly, is not exempt from choosing evocative but enigmatic names for its models, and now the Japanese automaker is taking us through the etymology of some of its nameplates. Name ...

Jeep Cherokee Sales Trending 4WD, V-6

Oct 20 2014 12:10pm CDT | Source: Truck Trend

Once-Controversial Model Leading Brand’s Sales ChartsChrysler has a history of creating polarizing designs that initially turn off a small segment of buyers but ultimately end up being trend-setting designs that are emulated by competitors. The first major example was the 1994 Ram, which debuted the line’s now-signature “big rig” look. Today, it seems there’s a competition among truck makers for who has the biggest grille. Likewise, when photos of the 2014 Je ...
