JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
How does this sound...Jeep Wrangler with a diesel?! Sounds great right?? Well, it finally looks like cooler heads are prevailing here and the long awaited diesel version will arrive a long with the new Jeep Truck and a Wrangler hybrid. Which actually sounds like a pretty awesome line up for the Wrangler family. FCA made the announcement at their investor meeting recently.
In the words of the FCA head honcho Sergio Marchionne himself..."We've seen a significant shift in the product mix of cars being sold in the U.S. Jeep has had a phenomenal year. We’re well in excess of 1.2 million cars, more than 200,000 than we sold last year, and as we deploy the architecture globally, you will see this number increase.”
"We have decided to de-focus, from the manufacturing standpoint, to de-focus on the passenger car market. Without creating additional capacity, in the United States, we need to...to try and deal with the development of the Jeep brand."
Big goals for the Jeep brand for the next couple years and I am excited to be apart of it...oh, and put me down for one of the diesels!
