Major recall has to do with electrical issues

Chrysler has announced a big recall covering 2014 Jeep grand Cherokee SUVs. The recall covers vehicles all around the world with 132,000 of the Grand Cherokee SUVs covered. The recall has to do with reports of random morning light illumination and instrument cluster blackouts.

Chrysler says that the events occur infrequently and are apparently resolved by turning the ignition on and off. The issue affecting the instrument cluster is apparently in the vehicles ABS brake module. Chrysler plans to replace the module at no cost.

Chrysler also plans to recall on 10800 2014 RAM trucks to update software that controls the instrument cluster illumination. Most of the trucks are still reportedly in dealer hands.

This forgotten Chrysler was its bid for Humvee contract

Aug 27 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Concept Cars, Classics, Truck, Videos, Chrysler, Military, Design/Style Today, the Humvee might be as associated with the dead automotive brand from General Motors as it is with the hard-working truck that has long served as one of the backbone vehicles of America's military. But Autoline host John McElroy is showing off a practically unknown part of the model's story by digging out some old photos from his personal archive. The H ...

Bizarre Levante mule proves SUV will ride on Maserati platform

Aug 27 2014 12:42pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Spy Photos, Performance, Crossover, Maserati, Luxury When Chrysler was developing the current Jeep Cherokee, matte black, lifted Alfa Romeo Giuliettas weren't an unusual site around the company's Auburn Hills, MI headquarters. That's because the Jeep rides on a modified version of the Alfa's platform. Judging by these images, Maserati is following a similar path for the upcoming Levante. The presence of the modified and lifted Ghibli basically confi ...

Consumer Reports says Ram 1500 tops fuel economy fight [w/video]

Aug 27 2014 9:27am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: MPG, Chrysler, Dodge, Toyota Consumer Reports takes its independent vehicle testing procedures seriously. In an era when we have to question the EPA's official ratings thanks to recent re-evaluations from Ford and Hyundai, an independent voice is important. So, when CR says something is the best, it's worth paying attention to. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has "about the same fuel-economy numbers that we typically see in a ...

Supersexy Alfa Romeo 6C to Share Platform with Supersexy Maserati Alfieri

Aug 26 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s been almost a year and a half since we dropped a huge stack of knowledge on the Alfa Romeo 6C coupe, and little has changed since then. Plans still call for it to be sexy as hell (the rendering above shows an early styling direction), share underpinnings with a Maserati, and arrive in roughly 2017. But there has been one major development. Thanks to a recent report from Auto Express, we know exactly with which Maser the 6C will be twinned: the stunning Alfieri, a white-hot ...
