    To your point, FCA hammered Cherokee incentives to the point that Belvidere Assembly Is almost obsolete.

    According to Belvidere local news affiliates, FCA has dropped a shift and continue to go through cycles of ‘volume related layoffs’

    According to reports, the workers have been able to transfer. Some already placed, others waiting on the new retro fitted plant.

    Does FCA follow suit, and cut the Belvidere fat?

    FCA needs this segment (something smaller than Grand Cherokee but larger than Compass) but the product need to be something new/unique for that segment.

    There is hope that the next version of Cherokee is RWD/has better packaging to increase interior room. I've heard rumors that what they have in clay right now is more blocky, akin to XJ. This design language is also shared with the upcoming Grand Wagoneer.

    Consider yourself lucky. My Ram has both of our names on the title and my wife refuses to let me trade it. Not that I can afford another vehicle, but I digress. :(

    My Liberty is a relic from back when we were dating, so it’s the only vehicle we have that just has my name on it. So it’s mine all mine!! Broooooohaaaaaahaaaaaaaa!! (That’s probably not something to get so excited for, but I’ll take what I can get).

    We just got done buying a new house, so a new vehicle purchase will probably be in the spring. We’ve been putting off buying until after we decided on buying a house vs having one built vs renovating our old home. We were going back and forth for at least a couple of years. Now that that’s all done, it’ll be the end of the road for my Liberty and probably my Mustang too. We’ll keep the Encore and the Audi.

    I’m excited to start looking and test driving. :)

    My daughter is in the market for a house. She and her fiance have three kids and currently they are in a 3 bedroom apartment. They pay almost as much in rent as I do for a mortgage so they want to get into a house within the next year. But she currently has a '12 Sonata that is a tight fit for the 5 of them so they want to get a minivan or 8 seat SUV after her Sonata is paid off in January.

    My advice to her was get the house first because as a first time home buyer it will take everything you have to get into the house and a new car loan will not help or be looked on favorably by the mortgage company.

    Congrats on the new house !

    Belvedere's future will be determined by this contract I believe. It's the odd man out along with Brampton. I wouldn't be buying a house in the area with a 30 year mortgage if I was a worker there. Guys at Brampton have to wait another year before they will know.

    I started talking about the XJ-style rear-drive Cherokee a while back as a "wish list" item ... and we know these things tend to travel in circles...

    This is something I pondered over the past few days: building JOURNEY'$ replacement on LC and naming it MAGNUM or NITRO (my favorite)..

    Thanks! This our third home purchase, and our mortgage guy still recommended not buying a vehicle if we didn’t have to at the time. Probably because we were buying without having the sale of our old house be a contingency (we were selling it, but weren’t yet ready to list it). He said the less they had to nitpick the better, especially considering how expensive houses have become, and we’d be carrying 2 mortgages potentially for a while (thankfully not). It’s always wise to minimize your extra expenses when trying to buy a house though. There’s always moving expenses, new furniture, cleaning, etc to have to pay for too. Houses are money pits. :D

    Otherwise we were pretty close to pulling the trigger on a GT Durango. I’d prefer an RT, but we can’t get one without leather seats (wife’s preference)...whereas the GT you can.

    We shall see next spring. As I said above, I really can’t wait to start looking. I love house shopping (not buying lol), and I love car shopping (not buying). :D

    I’m hoping there will be some surprises in the upcoming auto shows.

    I was thinking in my mind of Dodge RWD CUV named "Rimfire". I always liked it when Chrysler named their cars after gun stuff, Magnum, Caliber, Crossfire, Firepower Concept.

    I think it is not model year for FCA rumored dates but the year the model will come out, IE the new factory should be done this year so the new GC should start production this year probably as a 2021 then the 2021 rumored vehicles will come out in 2021 and be 2022 models and so on. That seems to be how it has worked in the past (once things get past the delayed stage)

    So who know next few years might be exciting with new model releases.
