Oh yeah, good gas milage), the '93 GC ranked #20 on the list. At the top of the heap was the 1991 Toyota Camary (followed by the 89 and 90 Camry). Maybe you should go check your garage.

DaimlerChrysler just released a press release announcing that they will debut 11 new vehicles by the year 2004. While 2 of these vehicles will probably be Jeeps (see this article), we can only guess at the rest. Here's a snippet of the release:

The Chrysler Group will introduce 11 new vehicles in the 2002-2004 time period, as part of a five-year, $30 billion investment plan in new products and programs, Chrysler Group President and Chief Executive Officer Dieter Zetsche said today at the National Press Club here. And building those new products with unparalleled levels of quality is the company's leading priority.

Calling quality the automotive equivalent to 'blocking and tackling' in football, Zetsche proclaimed that Chrysler quality was already rapidly improving, but added, "We will never rest until we match the world's benchmark." Zetsche cited the most recent J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey, which showed Chrysler Group passenger cars ahead of all domestic makes and better than many import manufacturers. In addition, Consumer Reports rated Chrysler Group vehicles best for reliability among U.S. manufacturers in its April edition, with fewer problems recorded on average than European-built vehicles. Five of the company's models earned a Consumer Reports "Recommended" rating, up from three the year before.
