While Manley expects the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee to sell well overseas, he sees more growth potential from the fuel-efficient midsize, compact and smaller models Chrysler will develop using Fiat platforms, engines and transmissions.
Those vehicles, which will replace the current Liberty, Patriot and Compass, should hit the road in 2012 and '13.
"We understand the capabilities and styling that make a vehicle a Jeep. We have access to the technology," Manley said. "Our engineers and designers have license to use that technology, as long as they use it to make a Jeep."

Overtime at BAP I will belive it when I see it. I work in Trim & we cannot even work a 8 hour day most days. This last week we did put in four 8hr days that was a flook and a half.
