Thread Name: BS: Were Jeeps German cars?
Subject: RE: BS: Were Jeeps German cars?
I saw some news coverage on how they built Crossfires with Mercedes designed drive trains and suspensions. They reportedly modernized manufacturing methods and managements. But I guess that could have just been a culture change.

High end Chryslers and Jeeps are not cheap. I think they could have been made competitively. The problem I see is are the Chrysler Dodge and Jeep brands.

"Jeeps that sell for Jeep prices, not Mercedes prices. "

According to this article. There is one such Car.

"Despite the fact it had been nearly four years after the Daimler/Chrysler split, the fourth-generation Jeep Grand Cherokee shares a platform with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class .[9]"

So I guess that the answer to my OP id that one model of Jeep is still German, partly.
