Chrysler was first organized as the Chrysler Corporation in 1925. On June 10, 2009, the sale of most of Chrysler assets to “New Chrysler”, formally known as Chrysler Group LLC was completed. The federal government financed the deal with $6.6 billion in financing. Contracts with 789 U.S. auto dealerships were dropped as part of the sale.

The Chrysler 300 is a luxury sedan that has bold styling and numerous luxury appointments. The PT Cruiser features retro styling that has been imitated, but never duplicated, by the competition. The Chrysler Town and Country Mini Van offers a luxurious alternative to young families.
