Plenty of Portland, CT, Middleton, CT, East Hampton, CT, Cromwell, CT, and Middlesex County, CT residents drive Chrysler vehicles, and there is a rich history behind the car make. Chrysler was founded by Walter Chrysler on June 6, 1925. The original Chrysler vehicle included a carburetor air filter, high compression engine, full pressure lubrication, and an oil filter, features absent from most cars at the time. The advanced engineering Chrysler cars had put the company into the second-place position of vehicle sales in the United States by 1936, which it held until 1949. Chrysler and Philco teamed up to produce the world's first all-transistor car radio, which they released on April 28, 1955. The radio was a $150 option on the 1956 Imperial (Chrysler Company's line of luxury vehicles) automobile models. Imperial would see new body styles introduced every two to three years, all with V8 engines and automatic transmissions, as well as technologies that would filter down to Chrysler corporation's other models. Imperial was folded back into the Chrysler brand in 1971.
Also in the 1970s, Chrysler established an engineering partnership with Mitsubishi Motors, and Chrysler started selling Mitsubishi cars branded as Dodge and Plymouth in North America. However, Chrysler could not keep up with the demand of smaller cars after the oil crisis in 1973, increased US import competition, and tougher government regulation of car safety, fuel economy, and emissions. Chrysler took several government loans which were repaid with interest in 1983. In November of that same year, Chrysler released the Dodge Caravan/Plymouth Voyager, which established the minivan as a major car type and brought Chrysler back to stability. In 1987, Chrysler acquired American Motors Corporation, bringing the profitable Jeep brand under the Chrysler umbrella. We at Hometown Garage in Portland are familiar with Chrysler cars and can take care of them, bumper to bumper.
Today, Chrysler continues to own Jeep and Dodge. Chrysler vehicles are known for their affordability for a luxury brand, their advanced technology, high performance that creates a positive driving experience every time, and its many awards, including J.D. Power's "Highest Ranked Minivan in Initial Quality" and Edmunds.com and Parents Magazine's "Best Family Minivan of 2017."
