300SRT is all but dead, Jeep SRT will only apparently live on until the new GC arrives in 2017/18.

Dodge will now be the 'performance' branch of the FCA tree.

I think it's a good plan for them, eliminating most competition within the company.

I'm so happy the avenger, patriot, and compass are dying
SO.AM.I. These cars are horrible. The Avenger was pretty cool back in the '90's, But both of these Jeeps are worthless.

Hopefully the next series of 300 SRT will end up like the last series of Magnum SRT, people buy them and store them in a garage to be worth millions in the years to come.

300 SRT I don't see being like that, it's too close to what is/will be offered in the Charger SRT...the Jeep SRT however, I could see potentially going up in value.

I am hearing from the Chrysler community that since Maserati Ghibli based on current Chrysler 300, that the 2015 face lifted 300 will get Ghibi treatment.

I think this is the main reason why I'm not a fan of the new Maserati's that have come out so far, they look like a Chrysler 300 inside, Maserati's of the past had a more distinct, more Ferrari-esk interior, which I think suited the brand more. To me having (about) the same interior in a Maserati as a Chrysler 300 is a mistake, and making the brand look and feel a little "cheap"
