The lack of affordable and low-cost truck models in the portfolio impels Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) to consider alliances to develop mid-sized pickup trucks for markets outside the United States.
The Detroit auto show aims to bring a fresh start to the industry after a bumpy 2018. Among the new vehicles in the spotlight this year are a Toyota Supra sports car and a large Cadillac crossover, called the XT6.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) Chief Executive Mike Manley told Reuters on Tuesday he is open to partnerships to develop a new midsize pickup truck the automaker could sell in Latin America and other markets outside the United States to compete with models such as Ford Motor Co's (F.N) Thailand-built Ranger. "A gaping hole in our portfolio is a metric ton pickup" that would be a lower-cost, lower-priced vehicle aimed at work and commercial uses in markets outside the United States, Manley said in an interview at the Detroit auto show. Rivals Ford and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) on Tuesday said they plan to jointly develop replacements for their respective midsize trucks as part of a new commercial vehicle alliance.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) (FCAU.N) is reviewing its investment plan for Italy after the country approved taxes on the purchase of larger gasoline and diesel cars, Chief Executive Officer Mike Manley said on Monday. The carmaker said in late November it would spend more than 5 billion euros ($5.7 billion) on new models and engines in Italy over the next three years to try to make better use of factories and boost jobs and margins. In December, however, Italy approved measures to offer subsidies of up to 6,000 euros to buyers of new low-emission vehicles while introducing taxes on the larger gasoline and diesel cars.
DETROIT (AP) — Major job cuts or an alliance with other automakers are not in the plans for Italian-American automaker Fiat Chrysler, the company's new CEO says.
The Detroit Auto Show 2019 kicked off on Monday and there are plenty of new vehicles in store from some of the biggest carmakers out there. Source: Wikipedia The new vehicles showcase will run from today through Sunday, Jan 27, 2019, lasting a total of two weeks. Here are five of the hottest new cars to keep an eye on throughout the Detroit Auto Show 2019 as these may be vehicles that help to define the new year: * Ford 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 (NYSE:F): The new Shelby GT500 from Ford is a force to be reckoned with as it comes equipped with a new engine that churns out more than 700 hp. This vehicle is as powerful as the company's new Mustang race cars that you see in NASCAR. * Toyota Supra (NYSE:TM): This vehicle is the result of a collaboration between Toyota and BMW, consisting of a high-performance sports you can also get in coupe form. * Fiat Chrysler 2019 Ram 2500, 3500 (NYSE:FCAU): These pickup trucks are sure to excite in 2019, with the 3500 offering 1,000 pound-feet of torque. The company called it the most "technologically advanced and luxurious" heavy-duty truck ever designed. * Volkswagen 2020 Passat: The German carmaker will bring this vehicle into the midsize sedan market, which has a swankier interior than the previous iteration of it, as well as more advanced driver assistance technologies. * Kia Telluride SUV: The Kia Telluride is a three-row, seven-passenger luxury SUV concept with a modern and muscular shape. Which one are you the most excited about?

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCHA.MI) (FCAU.N) is reviewing its investment plan for Italy after the country approved taxes on the purchase of larger gasoline and diesel cars, Chief Executive Officer Mike Manley said on Monday. The carmaker said in late November it would spend more than 5 billion euros (£4.5 billion) on new models and engines in Italy over the next three years to try to make better use of factories and boost jobs and margins. In December, however, Italy approved measures to offer subsidies of up to 6,000 euros to buyers of new low-emission vehicles while introducing taxes on the larger gasoline and diesel cars.
Fiat Chrysler (NASDAQ:FCAU) stock is dirt-cheap right now, and bargain hunters are taking advantage of the weakness of Fiat stock. While Fiat Chrysler stock doesn't pay a dividend, it has a price-earnings ratio of just seven. Moreover, the market cap of Fiat stock is $26 billion, which is barely 25% of its annual sales. Fiat Chrysler has a greater presence in overseas markets than any other American car company, and it has a plan to double its profits in five years. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 A-Rated Stocks the Smart Money Is Piling Into Fiat stock is cheap, in part, due to a series of self-inflicted wounds. FCAU got caught up in the "Dieselgate" scandal, it recalled 1.6 million of its vehicles due to problems with their air bags, and its union is riddled with corruption. Some say it has yet to fully recover from the death of long-time CEO Sergio Marchionne, who was replaced by Englishman Michael Manley. But most of Fiat Chrysler's problems have already been solved. As we move toward an electric, self-driving future, there are reasons to be upbeat about Fiat stock. ### The Google Connection Start with the fact that Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Waymo unit is apparently looking to incorporate 62,000 Chrysler Pacifica minivans, which Waymo purchased last year, into its self-driving-taxi fleet. And unlike Ford Motor (NYSE:F) and General Motors (NYSE:GM), which have all but abandoned passenger cars, Fiat Chrysler still has a complete lineup of sedans. While Ford and GM have been exiting some foreign markets, Fiat Chrysler continues to have a large global footprint. The whole autonomous car movement is currently becoming less ambitious , with even Waymo CEO John Krafcik admitting that such cars will always have "restraints." But that's not the same thing as saying there won't be self-driving cars. There already are. All of these worries are helping keep Fiat stock cheap. ### Should Google Buy Chrysler? In order to scale its services and compete with Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), Google's Waymo has to be able to produce a large number, and preferably a wide variety, of cars. FCAU does that. It makes sense that, at some point, once it's ready to scale, Waymo could buy Fiat Chrysler. Since Fiat stock has a market cap of $25 billion and the market cap of Google stock is around $730 billion, while Alphabet has over $100 billion in cash and short-term securities on its books, Google could buy FCAU for seat-cushion money. Alphabet hasn't looked to buy FCAU yet because tech companies are engaged in a vast game of chicken with Detroit, and with one another, regarding autonomous vehicles. There are over a dozen tech companies playing the game, according to TechWorld, including Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), Uber and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). Most leading car companies are also playing in the autonomous-vehicle arena or pretending to do so. Fiat Chrysler, which is also partnering with Intel and BMW on the development of autonomous vehicles, has other options. Once the self-driving business leaves its present beta-test stage, the value of self-driving technology will decline in comparison with self-driving vehicles, since the value of new technology always declines as it proliferates. Consequently, automakers that are involved in developing self-driving vehicles look like better investments than the tech names in the space. ### The Bottom Line on Fiat Stock The idea of Google, or any tech company, buying Fiat Chrysler is purely speculative, but the concept has some validity. Meanwhile Fiat stock has a dirt-cheap multiple, while FCAU has put the bulk of its legal troubles behind it and has a clear strategy, along with a wide variety of vehicles. Once more tech companies look to partner with automakers, the valuations of the latter are going to rise. If you believe the space has a future, history suggests you want to own shares of automakers, including Fiat stock. Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty is the most powerful, most capable pickup in the segment with a towing capacity of 35,100 lbs. and a payload capacity of 7,680 lbs. Driving it all, a never-before-seen torque rating of 1000 lb.-ft. from the Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel engine. The new Ram Heavy Duty also sets benchmarks in ride and handling, luxury, materials, innovation and technology extending well past any competitive offerings. "Ram Heavy Duty owners constantly demand the highest levels of capability to tackle the biggest jobs and with 35,100 lbs. of towing capacity, pulled by 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque from our Cummins engine, we now hold the most important titles within the segment," said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. , Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The all-new Ram 1500 has been named 2019 North American Truck of the Year by a panel of automotive experts. The award is unique and considered by many ...
Fiat Chrysler (FCAU) announces a recall of 1.6 million vehicles to change Takata airbag inflators. The recall consists of vehicles of the model year 2010 through 2016.
Ram dropped so much verbiage on new features that we'd need the truck's 7,680-pound max payload rating to haul the press releases, so dig in. Gimlet-eyed truck watchers will note the Ram HD's max tow rating is exactly 100 pounds more than that available on a Ford Super Duty, meaning the Auburn Hills clan takes the "best-in-class" mantle for a few months. The other big number: 1,000 pound-feet of torque from the high-output version of the 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six turbodiesel, a 70-lb-ft increase over the 2018 Ram 3500 HD.
RAM is going after buyers who want a truck on for work during the week, but still want creature comforts. Tax reform contributed to a jump in truck sales in 2018, said one analyst. RAM Trucks has stolen the limelight with its 1500 pickup truck in the eyes of many auto industry watchers.

U.S. stock futures slipped slightly on Friday, Jan. 11, as the equity rally to begin the new year looked as if it would fail to materialize for a sixth day day following a dovish message from the chairman of the Federal Reserve and amid renewed hopes that trade talks between the U.S. and China will deliver a near-term deal. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell reiterated Thursday in a question-and-answer session at the Economic Club of Washington that the central bank would be "patient" with raising interest rates. "We have the ability to be patient and watch patiently and carefully as we see the economy evolve and figure out which of these two narratives is going to be the story of 2019," Powell said.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has agreed to pay nearly $800 million in fines and mitigation costs, and recall thousands of vehicles, to settle charges that it used illegal software to dupe emissions tests in more than 100,000 diesel-engine pickup trucks and SUVs. The company said it would pay about $400 million in civil penalties to the federal government and California, and that it expects to spend about $400 million for environmental mitigation costs and extended warranties to vehicle owners.
