They shut them down for a reason (or two or three) and in a consolidated marketplace, the dealers who were shut down or lost their franchise won't be able to just pick up where they left off.

I suspect that Chrysler will require any new or re-established dealership to carry all Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep lines as one major condition to re-establishment or a new franchise.

Further, there may be some disincentive for not meeting certain sales targets within their area, such as less holdback payment amounts or a % increase in dealer acquisition and franchise costs.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
