    Still ugly as hell and they clearly are not selling as you see a ton on the dealership lots but not on the road.

    As usual, Chrysler screwed the pooch on this, and owners hate these after the initial new car rush wears off. Explain to me please why we bailed these idiots out twice?

    Pop and Easy are pretty nicely priced.

    There is a whore in a poor section of chillicothe Ohio who goes by the name of dollar Debbie for obvious reasons. With deb and with Fiat, it's not good at half the price....

      Last week, we reported on comments made by Volkswagen NA CEO Hinrich Woebcken on wanting to expand the number of crossovers in their lineup. It seems there is another crossover possible destined for the U.S.
      According to a source, Volkswagen is planning to launch the T-Roc compact crossover for the U.S. beginning in 2019. First shown as a concept back at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the production model will launch this summer in Europe. The decision was made by Volkswagen once dealers in the U.S. gave a firm commitment to the company they would be able to sell enough T-Rocs to make a profit. It also appears this decision was made only last week judging from a comment made by VW brand chief Herbert Diess.
      "It was only yesterday that we decided on an additional SUV for 2019," Diess told reporters when asked about product strategy for the U.S.
      There are still a number of items up in the air, however. For one, Volkswagen needs to decide where it will build the T-Roc. It could import the model from Volkswagen's Portugal plant, build it in Puebla, Mexico, or have it in the same assembly plant as the Atlas in Chattanooga, TN.

      Porsche's upcoming Mission E is an important vehicle for the brand and they want to give the best shot of succeeding. To do this, the German sports car builder is planning to price it to compete in a "segment below the Panamera".
      This information comes to us from Porsche's chairman Oliver Blume. Speaking with Drive.com.au, Blume says the model will be offered in various power outputs (something akin to other Porsche models like the 911 and Cayenne).
      "We're thinking of different options. There will be more than one model, with different levels of power." said Blume.
      Considering the Panamera begins at $85,000, we wouldn't be surprised if Porsche prices the Mission E around the $65 to $75,000 mark.
      Previously, Porsche has said the initial Mission E would have an output of 600 horsepower and a range of 300 miles.
