    Isn’t BTFU a Purdue thing? I vaguely remember my old coworkers saying “Boiler the F up” when they were excited and watching a game.

    New one to me. I graduated 25 years ago. We weren't quite that crass. Close, but not quite. :D

    That plan may be a casualty of the merger. The merged company's North American operation will effectively be the current FCA US, and they should be able to remember how that other very Euro-centric brand, FIAT, fared in the US market.

    The best option is to design new front clips for the bigger PHEV Peugeots from France, so they can be exported to the USA as Chryslers. (The non-PHEV product uses engines that would be considered far too small for a large car by Americans).

    What's the point of linking content which no one can read? I.e. premium/paid content.

    IMO interior and infotainment would not work. Not to mention prohibitively expensive PHEV at this very moment.

    Also they could still be too small for US. Pug is known for their compromised rear passenger leg room.

    People are Stupid. They just don't get it. NOBODY is wanting or waiting for their crap to show up here under the European Brand names.

    I think it's premature to say anything about plans for any product to come here from Europe. If DS and Alfa are combined, which I think is highly likely, then who knows what could happen. They also could follow thru on what never happened here. Make a vehicle, and use a lower line mass market for let's say a Chrysler, and then use that as a starting point for an upper line European inspired model both built here. And please don't throw in the quality issue. I'd say both the Italian and American side of the business have much room to improve.

    I'd take a hard look at a 508 sedan with Chrysler or Dodge written on it and with an FCA power train.
