NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Chrysler Group LLC reported a narrower quarterly loss Monday and revised its guidance to a rosier forecast for all of 2010.
Chrysler said its net loss eased to $84 million in the third quarter, compared to a loss of $172 million during the same period last year.
The automaker, which emerged from bankruptcy and a U.S.-government backed bailout last year, said its operating profit was $239 million in the third quarter. Revenue rose more than 5% in the quarter to $11 billion.
Chrysler boosted its full-year guidance to an operating profit of about $700 million, compared to its previously announced range of breakeven to $200 million.
"We are not only living up to our commitments but we are also exceeding our 2010 financial objectives," said Sergio Marchionne, chief executive officer of Chrysler Group.
Marchionne is also the chief executive officer of the Italian automaker Fiat, which took a controlling stake in Chrysler as part of last year's restructuring.
He said that Chrysler has released 16 new or "refreshed" vehicles in the last 16 months, including the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Fiat 500.
