I think their success will be short lived. Chrysler has invested way too much in heavy gas guzzling models and not nearly enough in technology and fuel efficiency, the Dart being the one exception.
As soon as gas hits a level where it really hurts the consumers of these cars, their sales will plummet.

Scott you couldn't be more wrong.... I have seen Chryslers future because I live it every time I go to work, and the future is very green....

Thats great, really! Are they doing anything to compete in the burgeoning Hybrid and electric markets? Or maybe some other alternate fuel source or big increase in thermal efficiency? Or maybe at least bring eco: Drive to Chrysler products? I really want to be wrong on this one.

I found the segment at: 60 Minutes Fiat Chrysler segment
It plays in Microsoft Internet Explorer, but not in Google Chrome. I don't know why.

Well it took Damn-Lire what ten years to almost destroy Chrysler, then we had the clowns from Cerberus for a few years. Lets give Sergio a chance to right the piss-poor management of the last 12 years.

We have some great vehicles coming down the pike some with 40 MPG+ EPA ratings! As 45Ricochet posted we have a hybrid electric Ram and other vehicles in the works.

To say "I think their success will be short lived." is a bit over the top IMO.

Scott, that would be true in the past, but the Italian CEO that is the subject of the 60 min segment is doing things differently. There's new fuel efficient cars in the works and a new one (seen in the segment) is soon to roll of the line. Looks like they're moving in a new direction. Hope it works for them.

That whole segment is a bridge technology. If they're smart, they'll stay far away from it for the next 5 years.
