Right. If I remember correctly, Jeep's lineage goes:

  1. American Bantam
  2. Ford Motor Co.
  3. Willys-Overland
  4. American Motors
  5. Chrysler Corporation
  6. DaimlerChrysler
  7. Cerberus Management
  8. Chrysler Group LLC
  9. FIAT
  10. FCA

The only WWII Axis nation that hasn't owned Jeep yet is Japan.

...also, for a while, Renault owned a forty something percent share of AMC, before they sold it to Chrysler. Remember Jeep/ Eagle?, the Eagles began life as re-badged Renaults.

Daimler's German engineers certainly did a nice job of correcting the suspension geometry on the Jeep JK platform.
Not sure of Mercedes contracted the design work out the BMW but it works whoever did it.

Rock solid at 90 MPH on 35" tires. I wouldn't dare try that in a TJ.

Don't expect anything ground breaking out of Fiat's Italian engineering group.
Smaller tires, less flex and squeaky interiors are all I foresee.

Ford made Jeeps. They never owned Jeep. Fiat is the first off shore company to own Jeep.I'm not happy about it, they will be watered down in time, and I will never own another once my 08 is gone. I'll keep investing in my "61.
