Jeep, Peugeot likely to shine; Chrysler, Alfa Romeo face uncertain futures

TURIN — A big question is whether Stellantis — the new company that will result from the merger of PSA Group and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles — will be able to support all its brands in the future because of the huge investments that will be needed for electric cars, autonomous driving and connectivity.

At risk could be Dodge, whose high-horsepower cars will come under more pressure from tougher emissions
