MiscellaneousPresident Obama to Speak to Workers at Wrangler Assembly
Posted by mike on 2011/6/3 9:19:00 (636) reads

WTVG is reporting that President Obama will visit Chrysler's Toledo Assembly, home of the Wrangler, today to speak with workers.

Toledo Jeep workers have won just about every award out there when it comes to quality and productivity. And now the President of the United States is going to use the work done here in Toledo as a prime example of why the decision to save Chrysler and GM was the right one. Chrysler has paid back billions in government loans 6 years ahead of schedule. The trip to Toledo is a chance for the president to showcase the importance of the loans.

Do you think Obama can get some pictures of the 2012 Wrangler?

It's probably just the same as a 2011, but with more stickers, 20 inch wheels and a different mini van engine! Oh, and Jeep Green is most likely still not an option, but power windows are. Or worse, maybe they made it wider, fatter, heavier and lower? I sure hope not.

All joking aside, I think they have to start making it more aerodynamic so they can get the MPG figures up. People are not going to buy many vehicles that get 19 mpg when gas costs $4 to $5 a gallon. The concept Wrangler shown at Moab with the raked back windshield looked cool to me. A radiator redesign and no straight six (sob!) might leave room for a more raked grill for less wind resistance. Now that the GC has gone to adjustable height suspension, could the Wrangler be next? Snug it down low and safe on pavement, and push a button to get a nice 6 or 8 inch lift off pavement or in deep snow? Room for bigger tires without needing a lift or when in "the low position? Retractable air dams for lower wind resistance under the vehicle? Delete the side mirrors and use small cameras and in cab monitors, with the cameras adjustable from the cab to spot obstacles as you drive or park? Integrated winch location(s). Bumpers and fenders that are more aerodynamic, but with parts that remove for the trail. Maybe they can put it on a diet and lose some weight! One of the Moab concepts did that too.
