And you thought a new Jeep Grand Cherokee would be the last new offering from the Chrysler brand for a long time. In fact the company plans to expand with more models including a four-door version of the Wrangler, an entry level Jeep based on the Compass shown here and the larger luxury SUV, called the Commander, to fit seven passengers. The most interesting news in the linked story isn't Jeep related at all. In explaining that the Compass will be built on Neon underpinnings at the same Illinois plant that makes the current Neon, there is word the next generation Neon (designed with Mitsubishi) will hit the market in the next two years and will probably get a new name. It seems like Chrysler is using their new momentum to cover all their brands and are bringing genuinely original ideas to the forefront.
