It’s the end of the road for the name Chrysler Group LLC. The Auburn Hills-based automaker Tuesday morning announced it has changed its company name to “FCA US LLC” to better align with its global parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, which officially adopted its new name in October before listing on the New York Stock Exchange. The name change does not affect the company’s headquarters location in Auburn Hills, nor its holdings, management team, board or brands. That means Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne will remain at the helm of the new FCA US LLC as well as the FCA parent company.

The battle for market share among the largest eight automakers in the U.S. has never been greater as the range between them continues to narrow, a report from IHS Automotive said. General Motors and Ford Motor Co. have continued to occupy the top two spots over the last 14 years, but their lead has narrowed significantly as Toyota moved into the No. 3 spot ahead of Chrysler, now called FCA US. Using registration data, IHS said GM’s market share since 2000 has fallen from 28.2 percent to 17.6 percent through October of this year, while Ford has fallen from 24.1 percent to 14.7 percent. Toyota has risen from 9.3 percent to 14.5 percent while FCA, known as DaimlerChrysler in 2000, went from 15.7 percent down to 12.7 percent. But with more major players competing in the market, the gap between GM and the No. 8 automaker — currently Volkswagen — has declined from 26 percentage points to 14 points as of October.
