New products from Chrysler in 2010:

_ Redesigned, lighter and more fuel-efficient Jeep Grand Cherokee sport utility vehicle.

_ Reworked Chrysler 300C large sedan, which had been a top seller for the company until it was caught and passed by newer vehicles from other automakers. Has a sleeker look, more luxurious interior.

_ New Dodge Durango full-size SUV to be made on the same platform as the new Grand Cherokee.

_ New rechargeable electric vehicle _ either a minivan, a sports car or one of two Jeep models _ that can go 40 miles on electricity before being recharged. It will have a small conventional engine to generate electricity and keep it running past 40 miles.

Fiat SpA products likely to be sold in the United States:

_ The Fiat 500, an iconic European minicar, to be built in the U.S. starting in late 2010.

_ Fiat-designed compact and midsize cars, including hatchbacks. No time frame specified.

_ Relaunch of the sporty Alfa Romeo brand in North America. The new Alfa 149 midsize five-door hatchback, to be unveiled next year, would be built in North America.
