Why not build the Dakota on the new jeep trk platform, that is due for model year 017?Erik Latranyi said:Chrysker has everything it needs with the incredibly successful Ram. All they have to do is shrink it down and build it.
The problem is that such a vehicle would be on its own platform (not shared by anything else). It would need to sell 100,000 units (minimum) to break even.
Sergio is a big fan of shared platforms.
If there will be a vehicle that is the size of the Dakota coming, it will share a platform with something else. What that will be is unknown.
We can probably guess that it will not be another truck platform, but a minivan/CUV platform.
That grille looks awfully like a RAM grille!!!!!
