Chrysler was founded in 1925 by Walter P. Chrysler, and it was his commitment to the public that Chrysler would deliver consumers a product with quality, beauty, speed, comfort, style and power, all at a low price. And for the past 90 years, this has been the Chrysler brand's mission.
Today's Chrysler brand is the modern expression of this vision. Chrysler stands for quality, for design, for craftsmanship, for performance, for efficiency, for innovation and technology – all at a very attainable price.
2015 is the Chrysler brand's 90th year and to celebrate, the brand is producing limited-edition 90th Anniversary models that offer more standard equipment and value for customers.
"Ninety years ago, Walter P. Chrysler laid the foundation for a philosophy that still works today – craftsmanship, beautiful design, innovation and technology, all at an affordable price," said Al Gardner – President and CEO Chrysler Brand, FCA US LLC. "Those traits still resonate today in both the products – the Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, 300 full-size sedan and Town & Country minivan – and with consumers. Chrysler brand sales are up almost 20 percent this year, which is a great foundation for the brand heading into the next 90 years."
