Chrysler-what's so special about this name? For starters, Chrysler is one third of the Big Three, the triumvirate of the largest domestic automakers, which also includes Ford and General Motors. Founded in 1925 by a brilliant machinist, Walter P. Chrysler, this automaker is responsible for many innovations in the automotive world. In fact it is the first automaker to use power hydraulic brakes (1932), make alternators standard across all models (1961), and make driver side airbags standard on all cars (1990), among others. By introducing many improvements in engine, efficiency, safety and even in-car entertainment, Chrysler established itself as an undisputed industry leader.
Before Chryslers are sold in the market, they undergo rigorous crash tests that involve a trillion calculations. Though it only takes a matter of hours to complete each test, it greatly contributed to the
knowledge base. By the time sample parts came out of the tools, the vehicle passed all the crash standards. The assembly process is also known and all the components fit well together since the computer automatically monitors the new parts for welding, fit, and assembly access.
Efficiency and Safety
Make the vehicle your favorite room in the house, said CEO and chairman of Chrysler, Bob Nardelli. This is what the company desires to become. Inside Chrysler cars, you get enchanting entertainment that make you feel that you're in your own home. Last fall of 2008, it released the Sirius Back-Seat TV application that has a nine-inch screen. The rearmost one can also be swiveled to face forward to let the middle seat passengers be able to see it as well. If that's not enough, Chrysler even made Internet connectivity possible. It connects to WiFi antenna making your automobile a wireless hotspot. Surely, this has become your favorite room.
Though the Blind-Spot Monitoring is nothing new, Chrysler still did something to make it extra
special. The Cross-Path sensing is the company's trick. This enables you to reverse with the sensors, broadening their view to 65 feet and looking both ways as you back out of a parking spot. It also alarms if another vehicle is moving down the aisle from either direction.
So, what's so special about Chrysler? With all these innovations that the company built into its models, it is truly exceptional. From the time it was conceived and until today, Chrysler really puts the comfort of the people first.
Chrysler 300C: One of the Most Awarded Cars of All Time
The Chrysler 300 Series is a line of full-size luxury sedans from the Chrysler brand. The first generation of the high-end sedan line was introduced back in 2004 and became an instant hit with the premium segment of the market. Its success wasn't really surprising since the original Chrysler 300 was sleek, classy, and high-performing after all. Its relatively affordable price compared to other luxury cars also contributed significantly to that success.
Chrysler 300C: An Important Release
The sedan line's impressive sales numbers led the brand to release more variants of the Chrysler 300. Chrysler came out with a station wagon variant, a diesel version of the car, a Touring model, a Limited model, the Heritage Edition model, and even models that are built for the racetrack. But out of all the variants of the original Chrysler 300, the Chrysler 300C (a top-of-the-line version of the original Chrysler 300) is arguably the most important release. Indeed it is, and it has a pretty solid argument for the previous statement-it's the most awarded new vehicle of the 2000s and one of the most awarded new cars of all time.
