Gm shoping chrysler and dodge?

with the possibility that GM acquired the shares of Chrysler, financial analysts from The Detroit News have been raised what would be the possible movement after the merger of both companies. What is clear, as have been pointing in the comments to the news of the previous item, is that initially there would be a lot of models of both companies who would be fighting for the same parcel market.

According to analysts of the American publication, it is more than likely that GM try to do with Chrysler so that the latter happened in AMC.

AMC was an American company owned by Renault which had a full range of models and at the same time owned the Jeep brand. When Chrysler reached an agreement with Renault, immediately erased from the map to AMC, and only kept the Jeep brand and its models, as it was the only branch that truly interested him. Reuse the resources of AMC, its factories and engineers for their own benefit, and hill and removed all those parts of the company that is not useful.

But as the story of the hunter hunted, Chrysler now would be the company immersed in a situation similar to that of AMC. GM would not be interested in preserving the ranges of Chrysler and Dodge, but if you should keep Jeep, as it is a mark of high added value.

which is why analysts are betting that GM factories convert more modern Chyrsler to manufacture GM vehicles, closing everything that you do not need, and take advantage of available economic resources available to the home of the star for his own benefit.

Can be an economically attractive solution, but from the standpoint of fan and the employee, the plan, at least, startled. The effects would be similar to the complete disappearance of Chrysler, with countless layoffs, plant closures and more obsolete least productive of GM and Chrysler, the disappearance of two of the most famous brands in the United States, canceling models like the 300C, or the Challenger ...

The bombing of the weekend of the year, and perhaps even of the decade, comes in the form of a rumor from New York Times. Apparently, two of the three largest U.S. manufacturers, GM and Chrysler, have been in talks since last month, and remaining weeks of negotiations ahead, but today, the chances of reaching an agreement are 50%.

With GM continued to suffer punishment in their actions and Chrysler likewise, an association of the two companies could give out some of the problems. The last thing we knew was that Chrysler was already talking with Renault for one or more platforms at an affordable price

Cerberus does not respond to calls from our colleagues from Autoblog in English, trying to seek an official position regarding this situation. The only statement we have in the firm of Tony Cervone, a spokesman for GM official, who answered with nothing clarified "GM is continually talking to other manufacturers and negotiating for possible common interests." Come on, that neither confirms nor denies.

Place on the merger, the group formed by the two American giants would become the world's largest automobile company, with control of 35% of the American market. But of course, we would have to see what happens with the ranges of brands competing within the same company, cannibalize sales, future common platforms, highlighted models, potential layoffs, plant closure, and so on.

Our colleagues in the U.S. see little chance of reaching a successful conclusion to the merger, but may in this way will slow the fall of the shares of both companies. Who knows if all this is the end, and GM is expanding its portfolio of brands even further.

It looks like Chrysler is being broken up. Gm will take the Minivans,The Mexico truck plant and some cash. The rest will be disolved.

Here are my thoughts on the subject:

In the off chance that GM buys (absorbs) Chrysler LLC, and in the off chance GM eliminates the Chrysler brands (minus Jeep), what are your thoughts about buying/owning Chrysler products in your future. This would, of course, depend on if you are somewhat brand loyal, like I am. Here are my thoughts (based on speculation that GM buys Chrysler) :

1) It might be 1987 all over again. Chrysler bought out AMC/Jeep/Renault and only kept Jeep. (thatís what they were after anyway). It took a few years to eliminate the AMC/Renault branded products and some of that turned into the Eagle division for an additional 10 years.

2) Look at the AMC branded products now. There is a good following and they are still out there for sale. Many people still use them for daily transportation, so the same can be true for Chrysler branded products after a 2008/2009 buyout or beyond. They are harder to find, but they are there.

3) I know I will always be able to find a Chrysler branded car in my lifetime, so I am not worried. I would love to see Chrysler as a company built cars for eternity, but this may not always work out that way. I am brand loyal to Chrysler products for my personal cars, but am open to other brands (foreign or domestic) for additional transportation. ( have 2 Dodges and a Ford now, and at one point, owned cars from all 3 "Big Three" American brands at one time as well as imports.) My heart does belong to Chrysler though.

What do you think?
