Folks, recent developments have shown that FCA plans to move Chrysler downmarket as part of its massive plan for the future.

In the wake of this news, I've been hoping that it only goes downmarket enough to compete with Ford and Chevy, but that it won't shed off its classy roots (just ignore the '80s and the Mercedes era). I'd really like to see Chrysler still making middle-class cars in a few years, as that's what it always was.

I'd be fine with it if they went half-and-half: part mainstream competition, but still retaining the class and style of the 300 and maybe another model like that. What are your thoughts on the future, Oppo?
