Jeep lays out 5-year plan, including rebirth of Grand Wagoneer and new C-segment offering

Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Machionne presented a five-year plan for the company brands this morning, with Jeep first up on a long day of presentation. Jeep's head honcho Michael Manley wasted no time in laying out what the foreseeable future will look like for what he calls the "lead global brand" of the company.

Big goals for the next half-decade will include expanding the lineup from five nameplates built in one country, to six nameplates build in six countries. That expansion of models will include both a three-row competitor, and, of course, a small vehicle to slot below Cherokee. The company is also seeking to add a whopping 1,300 dealers over the next few years, to sell all this new metal, and has an aggressive goal of doubling Jeep sales by the time 2018 rolls around.

Re: Jeep lays out 5-year plan, including rebirth of Grand Wagoneer and new C-segment

Way back in my head I thought that the Fiat-Chrysler merger would be a good one, certainly better than previous with Daimler, due to the similar situation they both find themselves in, and the honesty and integrity that results. Thinking back to the nasty snob types at Daimler who looked down on Chrysler engineers as 2nd or 3rd rate fellow employees, I see a much better merger here with great potential for both brands and global growth. Thus far I like the segregation of product segments and overlap. Ram and Dodge have such great storied names, they should remain as is. Jeep is already on a roll too, and as they go global, that will offer many thriving opportunities, as well as great challenges.

I am looking forward to great things for mopar fans, as even I plan on my next stage of restoration for my cuda

=======================

Every sub-$50,000 car on the market will have to answer to the Ford from now on, no matter what badge it brings to the table.
