I am glad that the takeover now by FIAT is actually seemingly the merger of equals that DBAG promised. I just wish that they weren't making some basic, albeit small, mistakes with some of the products. Things like the aesthetic issues that we've seen with Cherokee and the Van, and also with the van, pricing issues. It would also be good if they got some of the more special options like the fanciest Dart into production at launch time rather than the delays that we're seeing.

On the other hand, if the Pentastar engines prove as capable as they seem to be now, we could be looking at an engine with a legacy like the LA small block enjoyed, which was original equipment in some form or another for 40 model years. Granted, 40 years is probably a stretch in this era of increasing emissions and fuel economy standards, but I can see engines in this family surviving through a couple of generations of car and several generations of truck or van.
