    A little more information on the 2015 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. Looks like the Dodge Durango might stay in the Dodge stable to allow a more affordable alternative to the new luxury based Grand Wagoneer. The Grand Wagoneer will still have the underpinnings of the Grand Cherokee, but will be more of an all out luxury SUV unlike the Jeep Commander it will replace. Chrysler is aimming the Grand Wagoneer at Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, and Land Rover Range Rover Sport. Been told a fully loaded Grand Wagoneer will hit high $60k - low $70k range! That will leave enough room for the Durango to be in the Dodge lineup as well as Jefferson Ave. Plant (JNAP) will NOT produce the Maserati SUV here in Detroit. This will also allow three models (Grand Cherokee, Grand Wagonner, and Durango) to be produced w/ three shifts.

    Dodge Durango has a lot going for itself, due to the fact it will give an alternative to the base Grand Cherokee and offer three rows of seating, will still continue to be used for emergency fleet vehicles, and with the ever shinking Dodge lineup it provides strength in the brand that has been broken up into three brands over the past three years (Dodge, Ram, and SRT).

    The question is... While assembly might not produce the Maserati, will body shop? That could still happen. We can build the bodies, then ship them out to Italy.

    That would work out perfectly. Why? Assembly doesn't have the capacity to build all 4.

    Thanks for the info 'rr'. I totally agree with you about the Durango. Another great vehicle that seems to fall into the 'neglected abyss'. Perhaps now that will change.

    To me it looks rather familiar, but I can't put a finger on what it is. Is it a Renault or Citroen maybe?

    Ugh - yes - that's a Ssangyong Rodius alright. If I recall, it was used in the "Wheeler Dealers" show on a season or two.

    From the Ssangyong Rodius Wikipedia page...

    Re: Cherokee.
    "It certainly is a very, very well-known name. People who had Cherokees remember them incredibly fondly," Manley said. "It has huge name recognition and a big following."

    For that very reason they are playing with fire if they name KL "Cherokee". It won't live up to the XJ by any stretch of their imagination.
    If they think Jeepers are making a fuss over the pretend Jeeps now, just wait. Jeepers will be thoroughly disgusted by this move and openly hostile toward Fiat.

    ...oh...and Mike, if Cherokee has such a big and loyal and incredible following...why the heck didn't you just bring back a modern version?
    This Alfa isn't going to fool many...
