From the Sacremento Bee:
“On Nov. 4, we’ll get our first look at Chrysler’s future.
That’s the day Fiat plans to reveal its 5-year plan for the Chrysler Group, which includes Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. Fiat owns 20 percent of Chrysler and effectively controls the automaker…
Fiat has a strong motivation to get Americans to buy more diesels as an alternative to hybrids, in which it has little expertise. In addition, the diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty SUVs Chrysler built during its alliance with Daimler have a loyal following.
Watch for Fiat to promote its diesels for Jeeps and Dodge and Chrysler passenger cars.”
