    Buying Jeep would take away sales from existing products made by cross town rivals. Jeep alone is the only thing of real value in terms of brand. Dodge and Chrysler would be shuttered
  3. Any speculation on horsepower / torque numers for the Updated 3.6?

    But a large financial backing funds R&D, Technology Leaps and can raise the bar for all of Jeeps products. Money could infuse more small jeeps to offset the CAFE penalties for buying a ted blooded Jeep. I understand the feelings about not selling but eventually Jeep will be sold to someone. A...
  5. Source: $2500 Base Price Increase for JL Wrangler
