Well, apparently it was indeed FCA who withdrew their initial offer, but I doubt because they suddenly think it is better to go alone; I guess either something else on the horizon, or the first...

If they had brains, tehy could do a Chevy/GMC, and offer it as both Chrysler and Jeep, with the Jeep aimed at a more traditional clientele and the Chrysler version a bit more soft (like the Jeep...

Okay, I was guessing as it did look on some topics like it would share A-pillar and front doors with the Cherokee, so that might have mislead me and one or two reports I came across. But wouldn't a...

A Chrysler Pacifica based cross over is confirmed, should arrive within 18 month (so probably 2,5 years in FCA time)

Like most of the strategic FCA decisions of the recent past, they make very little sense. So they will "Lancia" those brands until no one would be interested in buying them anyway....

Exactly; Proper pick ups, sold as RAM, and probably the wide array of Fiat commercial vehicles in Europe, where Hyundai has just one van (H350), that is feeling like one of those Chinese takes on a...

I would see mainly the trucks as a benefit (Hyundai has no pick up, e.g.), and dealer networks; Mid term, as I said before, design/style influence, FCA is still strong at that game.

Well the small CUV thing kind of makes sense, given both cars are well into their life cycles and tons of competitors have arrived. A 1% drop on the Renegade is actually nothing considering how well...

That would make a lot of sense. So probably, Marchionne will decide otherwise ;) Probably as Mitsubishi (a lot of recent experience in mid sized sedans), some Chinese or GM?

This should be more of a Versa/Yaris sedan competitor, so at least half a size smaller than the Dart, and less sophisticated. Also, at least in Europe, it is priced a segment below the typical...
