Fiat

Since being introduced in American, the Fiat brand has proven itself as the top choice for those in search of a sporty, efficient subcompact with the diminutive 500.

The news that many in the auto industry have been fearing since this past weekend was announced this morning – 66-year old Sergio Marchionne died overnight due to complications from a recent surgery.

Let me start off at bat: Don Marchionne is a great man. Period. I didn’t agree with him with his paltry 5 year electrification plan for FCA Group, but with his expedited departure, we can now look back with definitive successes and failures. This is how the Era of Sergio Marchionne came to an end, and the Era of Jeep begins as the dominant force in the car industry, perhaps to equal that of Goliath General Motors, now that Jeep takes the world stage.
