Finally, independent front suspension. At last, Italian engineers are replacing Detroit dinosaurs.

So go on and tell us what Italian WWII military vehicle was as successful as the Jeep or even the German Kübelwagen/VW Thing?

IFS will destroy those high sales numbers they cherish, it will be a short lived chassis and SFA will quickly replace it in a new model.

It's a global trend, even the Land Rover Defender is heading down this path:

Let's just hope Sergio doesn't give the Wrangler a similar aero treatment.

AGAIN, look at the source of this India Auto Blog post:

Nothing in there mentions Marchionne saying that it's losing the solid front axle. All it says is that people are afraid of it switching to IFS. That's it. Come on, check sources, ESPECIALLY for blog posts from people who aren't notable industry guys. Don't make this like facebook.
