Fiat got 35% stake in struggling Chrysler without paying anything.  Fiat will provide Chrysler with efficient economical powertrains and in return, Fiat will have space to manufacture its cars in the USA and will have access to the Chrysler dealer network.  The deal didn’t cost Fiat a dime.

This means that Alfa Romeo could potentially be on US shores again.  Fiat & Alfa were not sold in the USA throughout the last few decades.
