Report : Chrysler, Hyundai and Mitsubishi end engine manufacturing alliance!

It seems that after the merge of Chrysler and Fiat, Chrysler has to end any deals they had in the past. First notice, that Chrysler have ended collaboration with Nissan, into producing the Armada and Titan. Well, here's more "out-of-deal" collaboration.

Back in 2005, all Chrysler, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi have allied together, to create the Global Engine Manufacturing Alliance (GEMA), which eventually manufactured fuel-efficeint 4-cylinder engines that were avilable in all Chrysler, Hyundai, and Mitsubishi products. However, it was announced by Chrysler, that both Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and Hyundai Motor Company, have sold their interests in the manufacturing alliance to the Chrysler Group. “Going forward, GEMA and its employees will continue to build state-of-the-art engines for Chrysler Group’s line of exciting, fuel efficient vehicles,” Chrysler said in a statement.

Nonetheless, GEMA will now build engines for Chrysler vehicles only, including the Dodge Caliber, Dodge Avenger, the Jeep Compass, and the Jeep Patriot.
