Chrysler retooling in Detroit, may involve the next gen Wagoneer...

While this article is mostly about setting up for the next gen Grand Cherokee with 3 rows, they did mention something about the upcoming Wagoneer:

FCA also recently approved plans to spend six months next year retooling its Warren Truck Assembly Plant to prepare for production of a 2021 full-size three-row SUV, the Jeep Wagoneer. The automaker likely has delayed plans to repatriate from Mexico production of the Ram Heavy Duty.


I wonder if it will actually happen...

Yeah, it was oil spikes that made Marchionne (sp?) kick the can down the road 5 times, I imagine it could happen again. Even so, my credit is back up to pre recession levels, so now I just need to double my income to qualify to buy one! Either that, or maybe they'll start doing 10yr auto loans? :P Might get a tax break if I claim it as part of my own burial expenses since it'll have to double as my coffin. :lol:

Even so, and I'm sure the specs have evolved, but I first fell in love the yet-unseen G-Wag when I read that it would get the Ferrari/Maserati V-8. Just imagine, the reliability reputations of Maserati and Jeep combined into one package! :o

But seriously, I don't care what engine or how ugly*, I'm still super stoked and saving up for it!

*So long as it's not made in China.

EDITED>> Because the China market 3 row Jeep isn't as ugly as I remember. I could have sworn it looked like a ford Transit with a Jeep badge, but I was wrong.
