“It’s all been secondhand info, but the 300 is moving to go away and exchanged by a CUV,” described Jaspal Brar, director of Unifor section 1285, in a job interview with Automotive Information on Monday. Brar is the director of chapter 1285 of Unifor. “That’s been thrown out there just before. But, we’re holding out for something more defined. We’re anticipating one thing faster as an alternative to later.”
Unifor is a Canadian work union, with section 1285 becoming based in Brampton, Ontario. Its associates are comprised of localized automotive laborers, some of that is utilized at FCA’s Brampton plant, where the Chrysler 300 is built. FCA reportedly invested $325 million in the factory in 2020, retooling its assemblage outlines and paint amenities. The automaker reportedly declined to comment on Brar’s accusations that the 300 could be exchanged in 2020.
These records are in line with reports dating from 2020, which also alleged that the Chrysler 300 and its platform-buddies the Dodge Charger and Challenger would be exchanged in 2020. According to the 2020 document, two of these vehicles are to be superseded by models based on the Giorgio platform used by the Alfa Romeo Giulia, even though one of the two sedans-possibly the Charger or 300-was reportedly fated to be shown the door in 2020, in line in what Brar stated previously in the week. An additional record from the identical time period professed that the Charger was thanks one much more facelift before a new generation is delivered in 2020, the previous half of which was confirmed when Dodge demonstrated off the 2020 Charger. Considering the variety of particulars of the gossip aligning with fact to date, we’d be unsurprised to see the 300 go the way of the 200 in 2020. There’ll be no way to know for specific till FCA reveals its intent for the Chrysler 300.
