The Chrysler Corporation was founded by Walter Chrysler in 1925 from what was left of the bankrupt Maxwell Motor Company. It grew quickly, absorbing the Dodge Brothers Company and the Fargo truck company in 1928. Today, the Chrysler Group consists of the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram Truck brands as well as the performance SRT and Mopar brands. Chrysler itself is a wholly- owned subsidiary of Italian automaker Fiat. Chrysler is also the owner of now-retired brands such as Plymouth, AMC, and Willys-Overland.

More About Chrysler

Throughout its storied history, the Chrysler Corporation has changed hands and faced tough economics, but has always pulled through and continued to make its mark on American automotive manufacture. The company has been credited with many automotive firsts, including the first practical mass-produced four-wheel hydraulic brakes, rubber engine mounts, ridged-rim wheels, the first all- transistor car radio, and others.

Chrysler has received many awards and accolades throughout its brands, including the J.D. Power and Associates Highest Ranked Minivan in Initial Quality award for the Town & Country minivan (also a Consumer's Digest Best Buy), the 2013 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards as Most Refined Brand, Top Safety Pick status on several models from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and more.

Globally, the Chrysler Group sells over 1.8 million vehicles annually (as of 2013), making it the thirteenth largest auto manufacturer in the world. Its parent, Fiat, consistently ranks seventh in the world.

Chrysler's marketing and corporate history are often objects of controversy, but their vehicles are nearly always accepted as beautiful engineering (to paraphrase their 2007-2010 slogan). As the brand renews itself yet again, it is introducing compelling cars and trucks that are setting new standards in the automotive market.
