NEW YORK – Chrysler Group expects to install SIRIUS Satellite Radio in more than 70 percent of its vehicle production for the 2008-model year. This marks an increase from approximately 40 percent for the previous model year.

For 2008 models, SIRIUS will be included as a standard feature in premium and mid-level price classes on most Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep models. Additionally, SIRIUS will be a 100 percent standard feature on Chrysler Sebring and Aspen, the all-new Dodge Challenger and Nitro, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Commander. Chrysler Group includes one year of SIRIUS service with each new vehicle. SIRIUS Satellite Radio is pre-activated, so customers can begin listening to SIRIUS immediately upon taking delivery of their new vehicles.
