    Don't know, but found this when searching with google news.

    Fiat-Chrysler Deal May Bring Jeep To India

    http://living.oneindia.in/automobile...rs-170209.html

    Word in the grape vine says a possible deal that sees Fiat buying about 35% stakes in Chrysler. Chrysler is the American company that is known to produce the legendary Jeep Cherokee. It is also the company that is known to produce gas guzzlers with little concern for the environment. Fiat on the other hand is the company that owns Ferrari, Alfa Romeo et al and designed the legendary 500. So how does the deal help either company?

    With Chrysler, the answer is obvious, 'Technology'. With the deal, Chrysler will have access to low cost fuel efficient cars that satisfy emission norms. That is Chrysler might be able to produce green cars that people may actually want to buy. Fiat in turn will have access to Chrysler's vast dealer network in North America.

    Fiat recently launched Linea in India. It also has a tie-up of sorts with Tata motors centered on the small car production. Now with the Fiat -Chrylser deal, Jeep models such as wrangler may head to India, as the deal means Chrysler would have access to the Fiat's market. So be ready to buy wranglers and Vroom...

    I'm Mike, make sure you spell it right, because I do not want to get the wrong A$$hole in trouble.

    If you do not have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time do do it over?

    If you look a few pages before that, they are talking about their past April's Fools jokes. It is the April issue.

We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    "It is also the company that is known to produce gas guzzlers with little concern for the environment"
    I like that line. has the guy ever driven a jeep? last i checked, a jeep wrangler was one of the most enviromentaly friendly SUV's based upon construction to a five year running period. It's more eco friendly to build a jeep wrangler than it is a prius. But then again im just a know nothing smart ass who is falling dangerously close to being considered a redneck/hillbilly.
