Dodge models could be rebadged in Europe as Alfa Romeos as part of Fiat’s restructuring plans for Chrysler.
Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has revealed he sees the two brands as sharing the same core identity and he aims to have a strategy in place for what to do with the brands by the end of the month.
One proposal Marchionne is considering is to sell all Dodge models as Alfa Romeos in Europe, and all Alfa Romeo models as Dodges in the US.
He said: “Dodge is the American muscle car, while Alfa Romeo is the European muscle car. How we dovetail these two brands is very important.”
“The level of competition between these two brands is tremendous because they are both going after the same customer.”
Marchionne also said he had managed to stem the cash loss from Chrysler since it exited bankruptcy proceedings last month.
Chrysler reorganised its company last month around its best assets and funding from Fiat and the US and Canadian governments. Last year, it spent $9.6 billion (£5.8 billion).
