Fiat Chrysler

As part of its five-year plan, Fiat Chrysler is saying goodbye to some of its models.

FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper with our weekly look at things with wheels in "FOX Wheels":

It's FOX Wheels.

Fiat Chrysler is putting it's brands up on the rack and doing a realignment.

The automaker is cutting vehicles that have competed for the same customers. So no more Dodge Grand Caravan minivan or Avenger sedan.

Chrysler will be the mainstream brand. Dodge will be the sporty, performance brand.

The Town and Country Minivan will eventually be available in a plug-in hybrid version. The small Dart will get a face-lift and a subcompact hatchback is planned.

Fiat Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne is not interested in making aluminum trucks like Ford...

(Marchionne) "I think we actually have better mileage today than the alleged mileage of the aluminum truck for Ford, by using diesel. We're gonna see what happens in the marketplace. If it's the right answer, we're all gonna join in - us, GM."

Some new Jeep products are also are on the way.

If you like getting behind the wheel while you're on the couch...

Grand Theft Auto Online's "High Life" update is being released this week on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It features at least four new fake sports cars, an SUV and a hot motorcycle.
