A reliable source wrote that a Jeep Wrangler dubbed Call of Duty II is being set up; it will feature a custom AEV hood, Mopar bumpers, and the usual Pentastar V6 with a choice of automatic or manual transmission. As with the original, it will come in black with Call of Duty badging, in this case including Modern Warfare 3 references (the game is set to arrive in early November, and the Jeep will likely be timed to be available at the same time).

Dodge’s use of Cummins diesels back in 1989 succeeded beyond expectations, reviving a nearly dead truck line. When the company added a VM diesel to the Ram 1500, sales were, again, much better than expected. Chrysler had predicted a 10% take rate, perhaps up to 15%; but Allpar reported in August that the line was running up to 25% diesels when the engines were [...]
