Fiat's marketing strategy includes music sponsorship at the AMA's

Fiat Chrysler American Music Awards

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has done it again! Not only is the company the official sponsor of the American Music Awards telecast, but it has also figured out a very cool way to incorporate music to differentiate itself from the rest of the automobile trade.
