The North American International Auto Show was a great opportunity to find out a lot of new things about cars, concepts carmakers' future plans.
A discussion of the reporters with Sergio Marchionne revealed some intentions to revive the jeep Grand Wagoneer nameplate by releasing on the market a seven-seat SUV model, which will be based on the underpinnings of the recently launched Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee and different from the seven-seat Jeep Commander, which was defeated by Chrysler as it seemed to be unfit for human consumption.
According to Marchionne, the time has come for an upper-scale Grand Wagoneer to hit the markets, more exactly in January 2013 and another objective on the list will be the killing of one of the group’s two traditional minivans, either the Chrysler Town&Country or the Dodge Grand Caravan. Rumors say that the Dodge model is more likely to remain in production, while the Chrysler group is also about to provide a successor for the Dodge Nitro and Jeep Liberty SUVs. Marchionne added that it was a necessary thing to replace the Nitro, but not necessarily by a Dodge-branded model because Chrysler is able to meet the required standards. He also pointed that an investment in Hemi would continue.
A decision will be made in about 40 days and we will keep you on notice as soon as we find out more details.
