    Im liking the name Gus not so Italian sounding. That's not a knock to Giorgio. But I'm sure allot of guys this side of the pond will agree. Still pumped to hear more on this as it all unfolds.

    I wonder if a Sub Jeep makes sense at all in NA, but I thought that about the Renegade also.... so who knows... I know it would have a heck of market elsewhere in the world.

    Was the Charger that was shown an actual prototype, or at least a mockup, or was it just drawings?

    Does this mean that a new Charger will be coming out roughly in 2018, likely as a 2019 model? The reason I ask is because we've variously heard that the L's would be pushed back, possibly as late as 2021. In addition, if a new Charger was shown, does that imply that the new 300 will no longer be a platform mate of the Charger, and thus no longer RWD? I know that not showing the 300 doesn't necessarily mean anything on its own, but if it had been shown with the Charger, that would possibly imply that they would remain platform mates.

    @RVC :can you comment on some of that?

    We also tend to forget just how small the original Jeeps were. Have you ever looked at an old 50's "Wrangler" versus a JK 2-door? The growth rate has been enormous! Even the new Renegade is significantly larger. In foreign countries, this is a real detriment and a much smaller Jeep would be a benefit. Of course, there's no way that it will be rugged like I would prefer, but that's today's reality...

    No details on the Grand Wagoner styling?

    Sounds very promising, can't wait to see these models.

    These types of posts are the reason I'm a daily reader of allpar. This is the stuff I'm looking for!

    As many questions I have for most of the things listed, I think the two most interesting for me is for us to finally see the new T&C and what on earth is the Ram doing with our trucks that could be so game changing?

    A competitor for the Explorer with Stow-n-Go Durango sized Chrysler sounds like a winner.

    Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about the 100. Maybe it's not to be.....at least in the next 2-3 years. I agree that if this list becomes reality that this is good news. I'll believe it when I see it.

    Unless things change (and they might), CAFE gets tighter in 2017. I would think that they need some new mass-market (meaning: not Fiat-branded) small cars, even if the market isn't hot for them right now.

    Keep in mind, folks, two things:

    1) Not everything that has been shown at these dealer shows makes it into production

    2) It ain't official until it is official.

    Except that everything shown in metal has been approved for production and will be on the lots in 12-24 months or did you miss that part?

    Chrysler CUV with Plug-in Hybrid option will be based on the Town & Country minivan....that is why they share powertrain choices also. It is not based on the Durango.

    Nope. I just know how plans at FCA change on a dime...even in the late stages.
