In the no-brainer of the day, Left Lane News is reporting that Fiat has confirmed that the Wrangler will continue to be built on a unique platform.
The Wrangler will continue on its own off-road platform with no Fiat variations planned.
While future Jeep models may adopt some Fiat DNA in the name of fuel economy, the Wrangler will remain on its more durable body-on-frame architecture. Fiat says there are no plans to produce other models on the Wrangler platform, even within the Jeep family.
Although no new models are planned for the Wrangler’s platform, the Wrangler lineup could expand to include a few more models. Jeep boss Mike Manley admits that a Wrangler-based pickup truck is under consideration, as is a diesel powerplant for the U.S. market. However, Manley says neither variation is "imminent."

Re: Wrangler to Remain Unique (Duh)
Wow! It must have been a really slow news day for Left Lane News to write a story like this. Also it is becoming more disturbing each time Mike Manley makes an announcement about the "future" of Jeep. Time is wasting....Duh! The qoute below from the article is like "doublespeak" and makes no sense at all!!! Maybe it means some more decals and stickers will be added to appease the buyers...
