    The Jeep Grand Cherokee “WL” is set to hit production  in the first half of 2021; but not every variant will be available at launch. Given rumors of a 2.0 liter engine and the GME T6, some speculated that the Grand Cherokee would not have a Pentastar V6 or Hemi V8 option. It turns out neither...

    The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid stunned many critics with its smooth powertrain and high fuel economy, but with gasoline prices quite low and the hybrid premium fairly high, it hasn’t set the retail world on fire. It did find one happy customer, though, with room for more: self-driving firm Waymo...

    Fiat Chrysler’s first serious hybrid-electric was the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan, a major leap forward. It blasted onto the hybrid scene fully developed, after having been tested, refined, and retuned extensively, and gave journalist-reviewers high mileage, good acceleration, and...

    Fiat Chrysler’s first serious hybrid-electric was the Chrysler Pacifica plug-in hybrid minivan; it blasted onto the hybrid scene fully developed, after having been extensively tested, refined, and retuned. Journalist-reviewers saw high mileage, good acceleration, surprising cornering, and smooth...

    With the Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler Pacifica sharing so much, and the Wrangler already having a mild-hybrid powerplant, one might expect that Jeep’s first plug-in hybrid (“PHEV”) would be either the Cherokee or Pacifica. That, though, would ignore the fact that PHEVs are hot in Europe, where...

    Are you wondering what’s in store for future performance hybrids at Dodge, Chrysler, or Jeep? The Alfa Romeo Tonale plug-in hybrid may be pointing the way, in a compact-crossover format. The 21-inch “phone dial wheel” replicates the 1960s’ 33 Stradale, but that’s hardly likely to make it to...

    Last year, Guangzhou Automobile Group created a new Trumpchi brand. Now, according to Bloomberg , FCA, Toyota, Honda, and Mitsubishi will all sell the same car under their own brands, while keeping the Guangzhou logo. China has been trying to make its air and water less toxic; its new...

    FCA is not going to stop its push to engineer future-tech cars any time soon, if its job listings are any indication. On October 8, we spotted a listing for a high-voltage development and system integration engineer and a "driver assistance functional integrator;" a couple of days later, we...

    FCA has started to prepare its Italian plant for a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) Jeep Renegade, part of its five-year, $10 billion plunge into electric and hybrid cars — which, in Europe, will replace diesels. The Jeep Renegade plug-in hybrid isn’t likely to arrive until the year 2020, and at this...

    The powertrain of the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, unimaginatively dubbed the “Pentastar eHybrid,” has hit the Ward’s Ten Best Engines list for 2018 — the second time it’s made the cut in its two years of life. The plug-in hybrid propulsion system makes the Pacifica Hybrid the most efficient...

    Either ahead of the Jeep K8, or replacing it, is the Jeep Yuntu, a PHEV concept to be shown in Shanghai. The Yuntu bears a definite resemblance to the K8 we revealed last week; it has LED headlights and, apparently, suicide doors. Since the Chrysler Pacifica rides on a very similar platform...

    FCA has created a new “building wrap” for its Auburn Hills headquarters tower, celebrating the impending release of the Pacifica hybrid — still predicted to deliver 80 MPG-equivalent when running on electricity (which it can do for around 30 miles when fully charged). The plug-in hybrid was...
