Chrysler Supports Detroit By Sponsoring the Detroit Jazz Festival

Detroit Jazz FestivalChrysler has always been proud of their Detroit lineage.  The ‘Imported from Detroit’ campaign was created to celebrate that history.  The auto company is clear in their support of the great auto-city.  That’s why they are sponsoring the Detroit Jazz Festival, the world’s largest free jazz festival.

This is the second year in a row that Chrysler will be the presenting sponsor for the Festival.  They will be bringing their Detroit-inspired cars as well.  The 2013 Chrysler 300 Motown Edition, the 2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition, and the 2013 Chrysler 300 John Varvatos Limited Edition.

This will be the second year in a row that Chrysler has been the sponsor for the Festival.  It’s all in step with the “Imported from Detroit” campaign.  The Jazz Festival is a huge money-maker for the city.  Thousands come in to attend from all across.  25.8 percent of the audience comes in from out of state.

“Not only is the Detroit Jazz Festival a world-class arts and education contributor, it’s an economic booster for the city and one of the many beautiful stories that continues to be ’Imported from Detroit,’ said Saad Chehab, President and CEO of Chrysler Brand.  “The Detroit Jazz Festival spreads the message about the beauty of Detroit and provides an enriching cultural experience for jazz and music lovers across the country. The people and the commitment behind these events is what continue to inspire the Chrysler brand’s ‘Imported from Detroit’ campaign.”

The festival is glad to have Chrysler back.  “Support from companies like the Chrysler brand, who are committed to helping this city,” said Gretchen Valade, chair of the Foundation Board of Directors, Detroit Jazz Festival.  “Assist the Detroit Jazz Festival in continuing to stay the largest free jazz festival in the world and helps us to continue to offer these unique cultural experiences.”

The line-up hasn’t been released yet and looks to be sometime later this month.   The Festival is known for bringing in big name talent, such as Sonny Rollins and Wynton Marsalis, who were there last year.

Chrysler 200 About to Get New Look

exterior_04The Chrysler 200 has been needing some new life of late. It’s been getting overshadowed by the 300 and Town & Country. With all the updates being passed around to other members of the family, it’s time for the 200 to get a new look.

Autoblog is reporting that the Chrysler 200 is getting phased out by next year. Chrysler is giving the 200 a short year in 2014 to make way for the successor. Internal documents show that production of that 2014 model will begin this summer and only run through January.

Sadly, these same documents don’t make any hints as to what to expect next. Autoblog writer Zach Bowman has some early speculation that the changes being made will “bleed into the automaker’s other products.” A rumor points to a possible nine-speed automatic transmission with 38 miles per gallon.

Makes me wonder if the 200 will be getting the same kind of face-lift that the Cherokee just got. If it does, how are the fans going to react? It’ll be interesting, to say the least, at what Chrysler has in store to help people fall in love with the 200 all over again.
