Great things come in fours: four-wheel drive, for example, and now the four new awards Jeep Wrangler and Grand Cherokee - the pillars of the Jeep brand - have earned from opinion leaders in the automotive press. Recent accolades include:
These awards are especially meaningful because they focus on the customer, said Mike Manley, President and CEO - Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC.

Although the next generation of this spectacular snake wont unleash its venom in public until the New York Auto Show in April, we now have this first official glimpse of the 2013 SRT Viper. So far, the only factual information that's been confirmed about the car that will go into production late this year is that it will be the first Viper to come with electronic stability control and that it will roll off of a dedicated production line at Chrysler's newly reopened Connor Avenue assembly plant that also was home to its predecessor.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup is expanding - and creating a lot of jobs in the process. The new diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee will be available in North America in 2013. To accommodate production of the diesel Grand Cherokee and other Chrysler vehicles, Chrysler is adding 1,100 new jobs at the Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit.
Our future, like the history of our brands, is interwoven with the City of Detroit, said Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne. Detroit long has been home to renowned innovators and craftsmen. So it is in the Motor City, home of our industrial heritage and a resilient people, that we are entrusting the manufacture not only of the ultimate American sports car, the SRT Viper, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee - the most awarded SUV ever - but also a diesel version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee for North American markets.
We believe that investing in Detroit is not only the right thing to do, but it is a smart thing to do as we work to write the next chapter in our shared history, Marchionne said.
