Supplies and Suppliers Limited Chrysler Sales in 2012

Sales of the 2013 Dodge Dart were lower than initially projected in 2012 because only manual transmissions were available at launch, with a six-speed automatic sourced from Hyundai serving as a stopgap until a promised nine-speed automatic is available. In addition, Chrysler reportedly is pressuring Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee suppliers to increase capacity after bottlenecks cost the company 60,000 to 70,000 lost sales globally in 2012.
