Chrysler announced today (May 6th) that the SRT brand will be consolidated under the Dodge brand headed by Dodge President and CEO, Tim Kuniskis.  Ralph Gilles, former President and CEO of SRT Brand will continue his responsibility as Senior Vice President of Product Design for all of Chrysler’s vehicles as well as President and CEO of Motorsports.  “Given Chrysler’s aggressive product plan expansion over the next few years, Ralph has his hands full with product design,” said Maurice Liang, President of Viper Owners Association, “Being responsible for all of Chrysler design is a huge responsibility.” 

Under Ralph’s leadership, the SRT vehicle lineup expanded and Viper was brought back for a fifth generation.  “If not for his passion and perseverance, Viper would likely not exist today,” said Liang, author of the book SRT Viper – America’s Supercar Returns.   “Ralph has been the spiritual father of the Viper for many years, and I have no doubt he will continue to do so in the future through his role as VP of Product Design. His enthusiasm for SRT is infectious and has helped develop a loyal customer fan base for SRT and Viper.  He’s always welcome at VOA events.”  VOA welcomes Tim Kuniskis to the Viper family and looks forward to working with him to build a strong, mutually-beneficial relationship with the manufacturer of our favorite vehicle. 

Here is the official press release from Chrysler:
