Update: This from my morning paper via the associated press:
"Just a week after the White House scolded Chrysler for relying too much on gas guzzlers, the company is heading to a marquee auto show Wednesday to unveil a new SUV. Chrysler insists the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which clocks in at 20 mpg in its two wheel drive version, and 19 in four-wheel drive, is a crowd favorite and a crucial part of its line-up. Said Chrysler spokesman Rick Deneau, "This is a very important vehicle for us. It's one of the primary legs of the Chrysler stool.""
Just for the record, John and I live in a Chrysler factory town and are not hoping for the company's demise - our hope was that they would get it together and remain viable.
Well, we'll see.
