It will be the last Chrysler sedan.

Chrysler two model lineup will see the elimination of the Chrysler 300 in 2020 and the addition of a second people-mover.

According to , there is no replacement for the large sedan planned. Instead, we can expect a new model based on on the Pacifica by mid-2019, possibly a crossover.

A production version of the electric Portal concept is also planned and should arrive in 2020. Unveiled in 2017 at CES in Las Vegas, the concept featured retractable steering wheel and had autonomous driving capabilities.

The elimination of the Chrysler 300 in 2020 will end a 15 year run for the full-size sedan, which entered production in 2005.

It’s hard to imagine a Chrysler brand without a sedan, let alone a large one, but the segment is in a perceptible decline, leading several other automakers to also trim their sedan lineup, if not downright eliminate it.

With only three models in its lineup by 2020, will the Chrysler brand even be relevant? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
