Some Chrysler Innovation that Changed the Auto Industry

Whenever you drop by our dealership showroom to check out new Chrysler, you're looking at a vehicle that's both technologically advanced and stylish, but still very rich in tradition. This is because throughout the companies prestigious history, they pioneered plenty of "firsts" in the way of engineering. For this post, wanted to highlight a few of them for you.

For starters, in 1934, Chrysler produced the very first automobile with automatic overdrive, making the vehicle more efficient while reducing noise and lowering engine wear. This places Chrysler a head of the game on fuel efficiency, they were doing it back in 1934!

Fast forward to 1950 and 1951, Chrysler introduced a bit of tech that almost every car is using today; power windows and steering. Then just a few years later in 1958, Chrysler introduced the first model equipped with cruise control. Not too long afterwards, the auto manufacturer combined four-wheel drive and automatic transmissions, creating a vehicles that provide more power and control.

In terms of safety, Chrysler also was also a step ahead. In 1988 they were the first automaker to make airbags a standard feature in all models and then followed it up with the integrated child safety seat in the early 90's.

All of these features have been advanced and refined over the years and can be found on new models like the Chrysler 300 as well as on other manufacturer vehicles. Today Chrysler has continued its quest to advance automotive technology through introducing tons of modern technology features in their models such as Uconnect, which acts as a digital bridge giving drivers access to information, music, entertainment, and Wi-Fi.
