Jim Press: Every Chrysler to have alternative option
Filed under: Green, Tech, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep
Cerberus has opened up the corporate wallet, and Chrysler is spending the cash to infuse their lineup with alternative powertrains. New Chrysler product boss Jim Press told the Detroit News that diesels, hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and diesel-hybrids are among the technologies "in the mix," and that every vehicle will eventually have an alternative to the gasoline combustion engine. Full electric and hybrid-only models are also on the table, as Chrysler looks to shift away from the heavy, fuel thirsty body on frame SUVs that dominate the automaker's current lineup. Press didn't give any dates when we can expect all these alternatives to hit a dealer near you, but we do know the two-mode hybrid Durango will start the green parade in 2009.

With the bold statement by Mr. Press and Chrysler's project "ENVI," the Pentistar sounds serious about putting metal into motion using oil burners and electricity. With the Auburn Hills-based automaker behind all other major automakers in the hybrid race, it seems that Chrysler's pro green stance couldn't have come soon enough.

That would be cool, the diesel hybrid. I would look into something like that if I should ever need a new truck.

It's good that more vehicles are offering the hybrid options.

Imagine plugging in your Challenger at night!

I hope they offer more non-hybrid diesels. I am not sold on this electric car and hybrid market. I can see some problems arising from all of this.

That is about the only thing I can think of that would kill my interest in the Challenger. A cord connected in the location of the fuel tank. It just isn't right![sm=headbang.gif] That'll give me nightmares for a month![:'(] A Challenger should have a brutual, rude engine, not a silent whining sound. That would be a Challenger with an indentity crisis if you ask me.
