Biggest takeaway on that story I got was the plan for the Wagoneer & GC to be body on frame construction. That's a completely new platform if true. The current GC & Durango are built on a Mercedes platform (M series I believe) from back when they were owned by Daimler.

Sorry if it's old news, but actual confirmations in the news get me excited...this came out today on Reuters...

FCA said a plant in Warren, Michigan, near Detroit, would make the Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUVs, while a Toledo, Ohio, factory would produce the Jeep pickup.

from this Reuters article this morning...

The new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer will likely be rugged, body-on-frame SUVs that will seat seven or eight people

IF, and I say IF, this is big news and a significant departure from the Grand Cherokee unibody. One can only hope......
