And imagine, Chrysler is profitable (I assume) while covering material, direct labor, management overhead, engineering costs, employee benefits, the factory building, model year retooling, advertising, dealer profit, dealer training, recall and warranty reserves plus who knows what else. All this while producing an amazingly complex vehicle that we can buy for about $50000 or less.
As I have noted in a post on another thread, my 2018 Touring L is actually cheaper when adjusted for inflation than the Plymouth Voyageur I bought in 1988 but is a world better in performance and features.
This is not just a kudo for Chrysler, this if for the auto industry in general. They do not make them like they used to and that is good.
