Will it be the Jeep Liberty or the Dodge Nitro that’s sent to the great scrap heap in the sky?

Freep.com ran a story today citing an anonymous source that states Fiat CEO Sergio Marchione is planning cuts for certain Chrysler models that use crossover platforms, selling them only under one of the brand names.  Workers at one Toledo plant are concerned that Marchione will cut the slower selling Dodge Nitro creating job cuts in an area that is already hurting economically.

“Marchionne has ordered U.S. executives to come up with model cuts so a particular car or truck is sold only under one of the company’s three brands, Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep.

At the 2.1 million-square-foot Toledo North Jeep plant, which makes the Dodge Nitro and Jeep Liberty midsize sport utility vehicles, workers are worried that Marchionne will cut the slow-selling Nitro to focus on the Liberty.”

    Well, I don’t want them to cut anything – so that people don’t lose their jobs. But, I think that it would be a wise idea to save the Liberty if they have to choose.
