Chrysler Group LLC has become the newest member of the Diesel Technology Forum (DTF), the nation’s leading advocate for the use of clean diesel technologies.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Chrysler Group LLC as the newest member of the Forum,” said Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of DTF. “Chrysler features some of the finest and most efficient diesel trucks on the market and its alliance with the Fiat Group makes it one of the world’s most diverse producers of clean diesel automobiles.
“The Chrysler Group’s 2010 Heavy-Duty Ram trucks feature Cummins turbodiesel engine options that are among the most fuel efficient, powerful and environmentally-friendly trucks on the market,” Schaeffer said. “Their commitment to providing fuel efficiency with power, while also reducing CO2 emissions, is well recognized in the automobile and environmental community.”
Chrysler Group LLC, formed in 2009 from a global strategic alliance with Fiat Group, produces Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram Truck, Mopar® vehicles and products. With the resources, technology and worldwide distribution network required to compete on a global scale, the alliance builds on Chrysler’s culture of innovation – first established by Walter P. Chrysler in 1925 – and Fiat’s complementary technology – from a company whose heritage dates back to 1899.
Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Mich., Chrysler Group LLC’s product lineup features some of the world’s most recognizable vehicles, including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler and Ram Truck. Fiat will contribute world-class technology, platforms and powertrains for small- and medium-sized cars, allowing Chrysler to offer an expanded product line including environmentally friendly vehicles.
