It's cool that before the Renegade even has hit showrooms that they have plans to refresh it. You'd think that they would wait to see if it was a success before they green light it for a refresh.

Has this Grand Wagoneer been done before? Is that basically going to be a bigger vehicle than the Grand Cherokee, or is it going to be something more than that?

everything gets refreshed/facelifted. Its not strange that its going to happen, its strange that it was even announced, WE DONT EVEN HAVE PRICE.

its going to be a seven seater like the Commander used to be before Jeep knifed it in 2010...

In my opinion a real refresh (restyling) can not be done before 3 years from the date you start to sell a car!
Different is speaking of model year.

It is quite normal for vehicles to get a facelift at the 2 to 3 year mark and a redesign about 5 to 6 years in the product life.

2016/17 is about the time I believe it will be realistic for me to look to replace my new Dart. FCA has given me many reasons to stay within the FCA family.

1.) Jeep Renegade
2.) New Unnamed Jeep
3.) New unnamed Dodge Hatchback SRT
4.) 2016 Dodge Dart SRT
5.) Fiat 500X Abrath (500X Abrath isn't offically announced but, I see them offering it)
6.) New Dodge Dakota (possibly based on the Fiat Strada)

If FCA can pull this off, FCA will be a major force in the automotive world. I try not being a brand loyalist but, it's hard when there is much to be excited about.

That is why I said if they can....I know all of this may not happen but, we know at least the Jeep stuff will simply because jeep is a monkey maker.

Sorry, no SRTs are going be made outside of Dodge going forward. According to the 5 year plan SRT will become part of the Dodge group. FCA wants dodge to be the everyman performance group.

No, SRT is going away as its own brand, it will still exist as an in house tuning facility much like SVT or ST now is to Ford.

As its own brand it was a travesty, there was no way it was ever going to survive but I believe Sergio had visions of Abarth like popularity, I would realy like the name of his guy, Sergio seems to have some powerful substance ;)

Think of Dodge becoming the American Alfa and you can see why this has trouble spelled all over it (incorrectly as well I might add ;))

If SRT is FCA wide still, why are there no SRT models for any of the other brands announced, while every dodge has a SRT model coming out in the next five years.

The announcement this week that the SRT performance brand will become a Dodge-only division has raised questions over the future of existing SRT models in the Chrysler and Jeep line-ups.

In the company’s current arrangement, the 300 SRT exists as a high-powered sports model at the top of the big sedan’s line-up, while Jeep also boasts an SRT-enhanced Grand Cherokee.

Now, new reports out of the US this week suggest that the 300 range will soon lose its performance flagship - but not so for Jeep.

Since they have plans to make SRT a Dodge-Only division I hope they still have plans for higher performing Jeeps, it would suck if this the end of SRT Jeeps.
