Auburn Hills, Mich./Stuttgart, Germany, Nov 7, 2007 - Jeep® brand sales outside North America have grown 15 percent in 2007, and the brand led Chrysler LLC sales outside North America with 79,520 units sold through October. The Company's International sales increased 14 percent (19,797 units) for the month and were up 18 percent for the year (196,626 units). That added a 29th month to the Company's record of consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases.

Markets with a growing auto industry have been promising for Chrysler. Through October 2007, sales in regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East have seen growth of 17 percent, 25 percent and 65 percent respectively. The increased sales in emerging markets, especially China, Brazil and Russia, have contributed significantly to the Company's overall growth outside North America.

I think the Jeep name is the crown jewel of Chrysler. It seems that the Jeep name has been associated with several different manufacturers in its history. When those companies were sold or taken over, the Jeep brand was the only one that survived. It may happen again.

Assuming Jeep sticks with the design principles that created that reputation.
No company can live forever off past glory... Vehicles like the compass and patriot have me nervous but the new wranglers make me feel better.

Also the GC at least has brake traction control and hill descent control and other things that give it some measure of offroad performance even though the overriding goal is to avoid negetive impact on onroad handling.

If Jeep ditched the D35 COMPLETELY from all models and rid the GC of IFS (d44 rear and D30 HP front would be a decent combination of offroad durability, cost, clearance with small tires and weight) I would be quite happy with the direction of the Jeep brand. An optional rear locker on models BESIDES the Wrangler would also be nice to see but you can't have everything.
