Chrysler is a quintessential American auto brand. They were founded in 1925 as the Chrysler Corporation and have since changed to Chrysler Group, LLC, which encompasses Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge.
For many years, Chrysler was the third-largest automaker in the United States. After drops in sales and buyouts, Italian owned Fiat SpA gained ownership of Chrysler and its subsidiaries. However, many of the assembly plants that were established in the United States have remained. How many of their vehicles are still made in the USA? Our verdict is below.

How to Tell Where Your Chrysler is Made
You can find out where your Chrysler is made at the dealership. Ask for the Buyers Guide, which will tell you a lot of valuable information on your vehicle, including where it was assembled.
If you no longer have your Chrysler’s Buyers Guide, you can look up your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN). You can find the VIN on the windshield near the steering wheel or on the inside of the front driver-side door. Enter your VIN into a site like faxvin.com and you’ll see a complete breakdown of where your vehicle was made.
