(AP) Chrysler's manufacturing chief says the company's next new model should come out without the delays that have hampered three recent product launches.

Vice President Mauro Pino says a new midsize car that will replace the Chrysler 200 is on schedule to hit dealerships before April 1.

He says Chrysler learned a lot from previous models to avoid manufacturing delays.

CEO Sergio Marchionne said last week that delays in new versions of the Ram pickup and Jeep Grand Cherokee contributed to a 65 percent profit drop last quarter.

Chrysler is expected to produce 2.5 million cars this year, up from 900,000 three years ago. Pino says the company's quality has improved, even though it had to train 10,000 new U.S. factory workers hired in the last three years.
