June 21, 2007

Frank Klegon, Executive Vice President—Product Development, announced on June 22 new initiatives targeted at improving the fuel efficiency of future Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles, the company said in a statement. Among the fuel-efficient initiatives are a commitment to developing mild-hybrid technology and expanding the company's two-mode hybrid program; new six- and eight-cylinder gasoline engines, including cylinder deactivation in a V-6; and another BlueTec clean-diesel vehicle. The company also announced it is exploring the development of a four-cylinder diesel engine for the North American market and the expansion of its 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine. "Chrysler Group is focused directly on improving fuel efficiency across our vehicle lineup," Klegon said. "We have developed and are implementing a series of major initiatives, including a bigger push in hybrid and clean-diesel technology, to meet the needs of American consumers."
