    Chrysler Airflow Vision concept greets CES with a futuristic interior

    FCA Airflow Vision concept greets CES with a futuristic interior
    The company says this concept previews "future premium design."

    Fiat Chrysler is largely using CES 2020 to show off three plug-in hybrid Jeep models and a new "4xe" badge, but there's more. The automaker is also showing off this stunning concept: the Airflow Vision concept.

    There's no brand attached to the design study and the grille simply reads "Airflow" on the front. It's easy to see a little bit of Jeep Grand Cherokee influence in the nose, though the rear is very Aston Martin-like. FCA did share it uses the "dimensions and flat load floor" of a Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid. Perhaps it previews a future Jeep in some way, but all FCA shared was the fact it previews "future premium design." The real story is inside, however.

    There, FCA designers poured their love and creativity into a futuristic user experience (UX) system. It's supposed to convey how future technologies will let drivers and passengers interact with the wild tech. Ahead of the driver is a simple screen that doesn't block any of the view ahead.

    Looks good, but a bit generic and not truly "upscale".

    Though this is billed as an "FCA" concept and not a "Chrysler", it doesn't seem to be a stretch to see it influence future Chrysler products. The Chrysler brand has dwindled, but as consumers move to all things crossovers, there's more than enough room in the lineup to give the Chrysler brand a few people-movers.

    That tail light looks like a Lincoln.

    For decades Chrysler was trying to shed the image of the airflow as an ugly car that nearly bankrupted them.

    It's like Ford having an "Edsel Concept" or Chevy having a "Corvair Concept."

    I guess time heals all wounds.

    Yes the Model was a Failure, but It Changed Automotive Design for that decade unlike Corvair and Edsel.

    The Chrysler Airflow was a disaster in 1934. Anyone who was old enough in 1934 to know that is probably north of 100 now--if they are still alive. For decades now, the reputation of the Airflow is that it was ahead of its time. Obviously, the 1934 Chrysler Airflow is a bit behind the times in 2020. However, by reviving the Airflow badge, FCA hopes to invoke the image of once again being ahead of its time. I'm a GM and customer, but I wish them luck.
