Fiat recently announced that the all-new Maserati Kubang SUV will not only be based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee platform, but will also be manufactured at the Grand Cherokee's assembly at the Jefferson North factory in Detroit. Speculation is that a third shift will be added to accomodate the additional production.

The Detroit Free Press has the full story (and a photo of the Kubang from the unveiling):

The Maserati he discussed would have the same underbody as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs built at Jefferson North, but distinctive sheet metal and a Ferrari engine.

The platforms have some links to the new Mercedes-Benz M-class, which was started as a joint program during the DaimlerChrysler era.

Bernard Stewart, president of UAW Local 7, said he had no official word of when production would start.

If that doesn't outperform the SRT8, it will be pretty useless!!
